quote [ Wren Library in St Paul’s cathedral to describe what the library smelled like to them. Everyone described its smell as “woody”, while 86% also experienced it as “smoky”, 71% as “earthy” and just under half (41%) reported the scent of “vanilla” – all smells associated with particular chemicals in old books. ]
