There are some qualities about physical books that will be sorely missed once electronic versions completely take over the world, one of which involves its scent; In Libro De Tenebris could help with the transition. It is a fragrance that captures the essence of a paper book's scent.

Created by Paul Schütze, an artist based in London, England, In Libro De Tenebris is part of his Silent Surface exhibit, which is located in Maggs, one of the world’s most prestigious antiquarian booksellers. Showcased in tangent with two other objects, Paper (a book) and Babel (a series of prints of books and pages), the In Libro De Tenebris aroma was sprayed all over a dark book.
