10 Products For People Who Are Obsessed With the Smell of New Books

Stephanie Nguyen

It was Karl Lagerfeld who once stated that the smell of a freshly printed book is the best perfume in the world. If you've ever rifled through the pages of a new book just to catch a whiff of fresh ink on crisp paper, then you probably understand - there's just something so intoxicating about the scent. And these days, you don't even need a new book (or a bookstore or a library) to experience that new-book smell; you can indulge anytime you want thanks to these genius products. They may not replace the scent of the real deal, but they might spare you sniffing pages in public (and getting weird looks in return). Although you can still do that, too; we won't judge.
