Today's Review: The Smell Of A Brand New Plastic Laminated Backpack

There are many "new" smells that a person can relate to. A new book, a new car. Mostly they fill us with delight, and one can't help but have a good old sniff, even though it makes them look weird. There's a new Thomas backpack in my hallway, and I couldn't help but pick up the scent on the way past.

It is quite strange though. While it unmistakably has that wonderful new smell, it's just a lot more plasticy in nature, it doesn't feel right somehow. Perhaps it's because the same smell came from a brand new pencil case, and they always signalled the inevitability of returning to school.

I can't say that a new backpack doesn't smell quite good, but it just isn't as good a smell as other brand new things.

My rating: 3/5
