For those who complain that ebooks lack the olfactory experience of opening a freshly printed book, Passion Paper has conveniently bottled the scent of ink on paper. It's meant for a person to wear, but you could easily spray a little on near your screen before you settle down with a good ebook.

This "new book smell" perfume was commissioned for the Wallpaper* magazine Handmade exhibition in Milan, and is available for $115. Of course, they'll need to old book smell perfume before they can satisfy some advocates of paper books:

There is no smell quite like the smell of books.

That said, $115 is pretty damn expensive. I wonder if Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab could make one...
