paperpassionWe’ve made jokes about this sort of thing before, but it’s nice to know that real life humor springs eternal. Found via BoingBoing: for just $98 US (or £68.00 or €85.00) you can buy a bottle of “Paper Passion,” a new perfume scent that smells like newly-printed books.

This is welcome news. Now all of those people who cling to paper because nothing beats “the smell of books” will be able to move forward into a brave new world of e-books, secure in the knowledge that the scent of ink and paper awaits them in a pricey little bottle.
