About the smell: when I first started using Arches regularly, I was
always pouring lemon juice down the drains to freshen them and searching
bathrooms and closets for maybe a wet towel that someone had left wadded
up and mildewing; it was that kind of smell. Eventually I realized that
the smell was present only when there was wet Arches in the vicinity.

I've done multitudes of watercolor illustrations and paintings on Arches
paper since the mid 70's, and am very familiar with the "wet arches" smell.
It's worse than any wet dog.
