That "in the library" smell
A bit silly, but if your new house and new books just don't smell right, you can fake it with this home spray called "In the Library" by CB I Hate Perfume. Since I've not actually smelled it, we'll have to depend on the maker's description:
This scent is for those who can’t walk past a second-hand bookstore without coming away with at least one additional volume…It’s not so much the exact recreation of the musty, antique smell of the pages of old book as much as it is the entire book…a hint of worn leather bindings, a whisper of the frayed cloth and the wisp of wood polish from the shelves it sits on and even a bit of sweetness we can’t place.
