What is the explanation for a particular pleasant scent that books printed in India and Pakistan seem to have?

I've now encountered books a couple of times, printed in India or Pakistan, that have a scent that reminds me of a middle-eastern dessert. Is there any story behind this? Is this smell added intentionally as part of the manufacturing process?
