I Love How It Smells After Rain

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 551 People

    Especially In Mexico

     The dirt there has a different smell than the dirt here and after it rains it smells heavenly. It sucks when it rains there because it leaves with with messy shoes and the probability of slipping, but even with that I hope that it rains just so I can enjoy the smell...

    Full of Good Things

    Rain is increasingly becoming a rare commodity where I live in Australia. Already Adelaide is the driest city on the world's driest continent besides Antarctica (where precipitation is vital but hardly an immediate need).  The annual rainfall here has been down for several...

    Most of the Time

    I do love the smell after it rains. So rich and full. But there are times like after the grass has been cut that I hate the smell. All I smell is the wet fresh grass and it is so overwhelming that it disgust me.

    Like God Gave the Earth a Bath

    I love the way everything looks freshly washed and moisturised, even the tree bark and nasty cement blocks.  I love how it smells before thunderstorms, too... pre-electric energy everywhere, like the ground is waiting for sex...

    Cool Rain On Hot Summer Stone....

    Rain In the Desert Is Not An Oxymoron

    I live in Arizona, and I especially love the way it smells after the rain in the desert. Wet creosote and sage gives the air a pungent, slightly bitter aroma. Everything is clean, and there's a feeling of starting fresh.

    First Rain of the Season

    It just started raining here in Northern California.  It is the first rain we have had in months.  I have my front door open so I can hear the raindrops hit the ground.  I love the smell of the grass as the drops keep pelting down on it.  I find the rain so...
