The magic of addictive smell of books can be recreated easier than you think. A new infographic lets you explore the best book-inspired perfumes from top brands.
In a fast-changing digital world, many avid book lovers may miss the scent of good old books.
“How to bring the smell of my childhood’s books to my new Kindle?,” many modern book lovers wonder. Perfumes, sprays, and candles come to the rescue.
Obviously, even the perfumes with most skillfully selected ingredients can’t replace the sensation of reading a real book. What they can do, however, is to invite the book smell into a home library, a bedroom, or just anywhere we go.
Our favorite books can have a huge impact on our daily lives — including our clothes, speech, thoughts and feelings; even our scent! The same way our favorite books define us, so do the scents we choose to wear.
The infographic is accompanied by a FragranceX article with a full list of available book-scented fragrances, with a focus on romantic readers and fantasy enthusiasts.

Coriolanus released the fistful of cabbage into the pot of boiling water and swore that one day it would never pass his lips again. But this was not that day. He needed to eat a large bowl of the anemic stuff, and drink every drop of broth, to prevent his stomach from growling during the reaping ceremony. It was one of a long list of precautions he took to mask the fact that his family, despite residing in the penthouse of the Capitol’s most opulent apartment building, was as poor as district scum. That at eighteen, the heir to the once-great house of Snow had nothing to live on but his wits.
His shirt for the reaping was worrying him. He had an acceptable pair of dark dress pants bought on the black market last year, but the shirt was what people looked at. Fortunately, the Academy provided the uniforms it required for daily use. For today’s ceremony, however, students were instructed to be dressed fashionably but with the solemnity the occasion dictated. Tigris had said to trust her, and he did. Only his cousin’s cleverness with a needle had saved him so far. Still, he couldn’t expect miracles.
The shirt they’d dug from the back of the wardrobe—his father’s, from better days—was stained and yellowed with age, half the buttons missing, a cigarette burn on one cuff. Too damaged to sell in even the worst of times, and this was to be his reaping shirt? This morning he had gone to her room at daybreak, only to find both his cousin and the shirt missing. Not a good sign. Had Tigris given up on the old thing and braved the black market in some last-ditch effort to find him proper clothing? And what on earth would she possess worth trading for it? Only one thing—herself—and the house of Snow had not yet fallen that far. Or was it falling now as he salted the cabbage?
The most technologically efficient machine that man has ever invented is the book.
