Enjoy the smell of books without books

I prefer to read physical books, not ebooks. One reason I, and many like me, prefer physical books, is the smell. Sometimes I just hold the book in front on my face and smell it. You don't get the same experience with a kindle or a nook. Until now ... Karl Lagerfeld have developed a bookperfume, and it is now possible to buy it:
Karl Lagerfeld is quoted with this:“The smell of a freshly printed book is the best smell in the world.”

In a pressrelease the following is stated:- This is an opportunity to celebrate all the glorious sensuality of books, at a time when many in the industry are turning against them. The idea is that is should relax you, like when you read a book, to a level of meditation and concentration. Paper passion has evolved into something quite beautiful and unique. To wear the smell of a book is something very chic. Books are players in the intellectual world, but also in the world of luxury.
The perfume costs 115 dollar. Maybe a great present to a booklover?

Lagerfeld's perfume is not the first time someone have tried to cash in on the smell of books. Since 2009 Kindle users, among others, have been able to buy the smell of books on a box:
Does your Kindle leave you feeling like there’s something missing from your reading experience? Have you been avoiding e-books because they just don’t smell right? If you’ve been hesitant to jump on the e-book bandwagon, you’re not alone. Book lovers everywhere have resisted digital books because they still don’t compare to the experience of reading a good old fashioned paper book.But all of that is changing thanks to Smell of Books™, a revolutionary new aerosol e-book enhancer.Now you can finally enjoy reading e-books without giving up the smell you love so much. With Smell of Books™ you can have the best of both worlds, the convenience of an e-book and the smell of your favorite paper book. Smell of Books™ is compatible with a wide range of e-reading devices and e-book formats and is 100% DRM-compatible. Whether you read your e-books on a Kindle or an iPhone using Stanza, Smell of Books™ will bring back that real book smell you miss so much.
Would you consider buying something like this? I really want the perfume, just to smell it.

Wow! That's a lot of money. I would be curious as to what it smells like though. I'm a bit addicted to smelling books. LOL Might I recommend Demeter Fragrance? Just google's a store...and they have a Paperback scent that comes in a variety of much cheaper prices. I really want to check that one out. Thanks for sharing though!!

I can't even imagine what that would smell like. I love the smell of books but I'm not sure I would want to be covered in it lol

I'll have to look for it in stores.

Hey there this is somewhat of off topic
but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically
tweet my newest twitter updates. I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.

I often read your blog and I really love it! What I like most of all is the selection of books and the design, it is kind of cosy and attracted me from the first glance. :)
I would like to learn your opinion about the best internet site for book lovers. I mean a space for making book lists, sharing reviews, etc. Google says it is Goodreads, but may be there is some even better site? I would appreciate an opinion from a person like you who knows much about this.
I am sorry if there are any mistakes, English is not my native language. However I am looking for a site in English, because I have not found a site better than Goodreads in my own language.
Thank you in advance and have a good day!
