With the increasing influence of eBooks, there are many people who miss the good old smell of books, and these old characteristics of physical books play an important role in their decision of sticking with physical books.
Even those who like to read eBooks sometimes do feel nostalgic about that peculiar smell associated with physical books.
But no need to feel nostalgic, since a new perfume with the name of Paper Passion is all what you need.
This perform has that peculiar scent of books and you can use it to coat your Kindle or Nook and hence enjoy digital book reading amid the smell of physical books.
According to the maker of the perfume, it contains the fragrance of a freshly printed book.
A touch of this perfume would certainly make the ‘burnt fuel’ like smell of eBook, as the late Ray Bradbury put it, much better. It can certainly act as an incentive for more people to switch from physical books to eBooks.
While this perfume might not have as much effect as renowned brands of past, it would certainly be an attraction for book nerds who considered the good old smell of physical books one of the biggest reasons of not switching to digital books.
The scent of this perfume was captured by perfumer Geza Schoen, which was done as part of Wallpaper Magazine Handmade design exhibition in Milan.
Talking about this unique product, she said that “You have a book, you open it, there’s a bottle inside and it smells of a book.
It might be quirky, but the idea has a simplicity, a linearity.” A single bottle of Paper Passion is available at a price of £70.
This price might seem high to many people, particularly considering that eReaders are available at a price lower than $100, but there would certainly be many people who would consider it nothing compared to the bewitching smell of physical books.
