Paperback. Tomorrow’s generation won’t even know what a paperback is. Seriously. With inventions like Kindles, iPads, Tablets, and Smartphones, the idea of opening a bound book with hundreds of pages seems archaic.
But no, we haven’t forgotten you, Paperback. We haven’t forgotten you at all. We still care.
This isn’t an ordinary paperback, or some new edition like the kind you buy from Barnes & Noble. We wanted to create the scent that you get from an old, torn, stuffy book, something you would get from the library.
Yellowing pages, bent corners, creased covers, these are the paperbacks of yesteryear, and despite its appearance, the moment you flipped it open and inhaled that stale musty paper, it was like pure literary magic. For all you book-lovers out there – we bet you still smell and breathe in each book you crack open to read, ritually.
Rich Himalayan bamboo blended with a vanilla-hinted cedarwood, topped off with notes of driftwood and leather, it’s that calming nostalgia that only true old book enthusiasts could understand.
And for all you Tech people out there, wait 5 years. We’re certain your Kindles will never give off the same smell as our beloved old paperbacks.
