Why Old Books Smell Good
“Lignin, the stuff that prevents trees from adopting the weeping habit, is a polymer of units closely related to vanillin. When made into paper and stored for years, it breaks down and smells good. Which is why secondhand bookstores smell like good quality vanilla absolute, stoking a hunger for knowledge in all of us.”
- from Luca Turin and Tania Sanchez’s Perfumes: The Guide
