    Red face (book/magazine) paper + glue-adhesive smell

    After reading weird threads here like:
    http://www.basenotes.net/threads/240766
    or gasoline-petrol and Fahrenheit,

    I'm wondering if anyone loves the smell when opening a magazine or a new book!
    I'm sure you do.

    So, any fragrance with similar aromas?

    Possibly Prada Infusion D'homme. Starchy, paper scent.

    Oh yes. It is discontinued, so it might be hard to find, but I think that Shiso (Scent One: Leaves) by Comme des Garcons smells just like a new magazine, hot off the press. Weird stuff.

    In The Library by CB I Hate Perfume allegedly smells like books...but probably not the slick magazine type of odor (most of which is likely from the offgassing of the print coating -- maybe print varnish -- that had been applied during the manufacturing process).

    Odeur 71 by Comme des Garšons doesn't explicitly say it has the note you are looking for, but with all the modern notes, it might give off that vibe. I don't know.

    I think a very nice modern fragrance would be comprised of the "magazine pages" accord, the "new clothes" note (possibly textile oil used in the textile manufacturing process), and high-end shoe/handbag leather. Maybe photocopy toner and/or amber thrown in the mix. I call it "Mannequin".

    It's a strange pleasing dry aroma that I find in the base of Czech & Speake Frankincense & Myrrh - smells like old magazines and bound paper. Now the opening has mint from basil and then the frankincense; but, the base is myrrh, chamomile + cedar and the combination is very books and magazine smell.

    Not that crazy about that smell, but UDV Black reminds me of it.

    Dzing! Smells like envelopes (paper and adhesive in one) to me. Very addictive. Makes a better option to glue sniffing.
