Preserving scent

No snide comments, Walter (at least on the List).  Perfumes are usually
volatile oils or substances dissolved in volatile oils.  You might be
able to keep these materials whin the volume of the book by a mylar
capsule.  However I'm not sure that keeping the volatiles suspended and
not deposited on the paper qualifies as preservation.  The first
opening would lose most of it.  Such a sealed book is also virtually
unusable.  You have a wonderful dilemma.  Have Fun!
