Why Old Books Smell Good

Lignin, the stuff that prevents all trees from adopting the weeping habit, is a polymer made up of units that are closely related to vanillin. When made into paper and stored for years, it breaks down and smells good. Which is how divine providence has arranged for secondhand bookstores to smell like good quality vanilla absolute, subliminally stoking a hunger for knowledge in all of us.

—From Luca Turin and Tania Sanchez’s Perfumes: the guide

The Tiffany Windows Pay Tribute to The Great Gatsby

I thought these were absolutely breathtakingly beautiful! I am a huge fan of everything 1920’s and I love “The Great Gatsby” and the fact that one of my favorite brands is paying tribute to it in such a gorgeous way just makes me all the more excited for the movie!!

Grand Central Station, NYC, 1941. The light does not stream in like this anymore because the buildings around the station are too tall.

I’d love to sit there and just drink my tea, listening to the rain

I’d love to have sex there and listen to the rain between moans

There are two types of people.
