I understand that the notebook in Robin and Orchid serves as both a hint system and a way to give us a richer experience of the story.

Does this mean that many of the puzzles in the game are spoiled by using it?

No, I don't believe so. I think I even remember that there's one puzzle that requires you to use information from the notebook in order to solve it.

There is a separate "hint system" that is triggered automatically if the game thinks you're really having trouble. The notebook, on the other hand, isn't meant to be a hint system; it's intended to be a core part of the game experience.
