I love the smell of ink in books. There are certain books, made by Phaidon, I believe,
that have the best-smelling ink in the world. They smell like Anthropologie catalogs...soy
ink...I also like the smell of old books, clothes, and hosiery factories. I am all about
awesome smells. I used to come up to Old City often when I was in high school just so I
could smell JFG roasting on rainy days. I love the smell of a sprig of rosemary and
lavender. I also love the smell of Manhattan after it rains, especially in Battery Park. My
favorite smell is the air in August in Portland, especially towards Mt. Hood. It is so crisp
and clean and beautiful. It is something I miss very much.
