The Smell of Old Books (and of New Video Game Systems)
Have you ever noticed the smell of old books? One researcher described it as follows: a combination of grassy notes with a tang of acids and a hint of vanilla over an underlying mustiness, this unmistakable smell is as much a part of the book as its contents. On a similar note, I also have always noticed a distinctive smell when I get a new video game system. Yummy!
