New Paper Smell Spray

The smell of new paper and Post-It notes, in a can!
  [vote for,

For some reason I like the smell of new paper products, like Post-It notes. It's a smell that inspires a feeling of well-being -- of crisp, clean corners and new beginnings. Miracles and dreams waiting to come true.

I would like to have a can of paper smell spray to spray around my cubicle during the day. To overpower the smell of co-workers, coffee, and failure. A nice, neutral smell. A smell of productivity and success.

       The smell of success?

       What an odd smell to like. Give me a permanent marker or Vicks Vapo-Rub any day. Croissant for the composition, though, Death.

       post-it notes mmmmm. you are the only person I know who has observed that scent without it being stuck right under their nose. lasts about 5 seconds.

       I usually hate artifical smelly things. The ymake me yak (like those little dangly tree thingies for cars, yeeuch) but I also am a new paper sniffer. New books especially. mmmm! Unsullied, virgin, crisp, shiny, pre-dogeared, pre-notes-in-margin, pre-bits-torn-off-for-shopping-list smell. Yes.

       Careful peddling that stuff, "Paper" is slang for a dosage unit of Heroin.

       Mmmm, yes, it is indeed the smell of productivity and success... New pads, it’s a motivational fragrance. (+)

       What I really would like is if scented candles came in "pencil."
