    Rain Is Special To Me

    I have such fond memories about the smell of rain. So many good days for me started with a cold damn day, with that great strong smell of freshly dropped rain. From 1st grade up all the way through college, mornings, days, and the smell just hinted an interesting day for me. To...

    The Rain Has Stopped.

    It's been raining for days straight. At first I thought it was putting me into a depression. But this evening it just stopped, and I was still the same sad person. To be honest, I miss it. It put me to sleep at night, and now I'm here with the silence.

    The Smell Of Rain Brings On Happy Memories

    When I was little my Mamaw lived up a hollar along a creek. It was nestled between the mountains in Kentucky. I would spend a good portion of my summers with her. And when it rained it smelled like heaven to me. The smell of nature was so pure and beautiful. I could just lay...

    Sniff, Sniff, Hooray!

    The smell of rain reminds my of being a very small child and sitting out on the porch with my grandfather in IL counting the seconds between lightening and thunder... that is one of the very few happy memories I have as a child.

    Happy Childhood Memories

    It takes me back to those warm summer storms, they'd pass through quick, soaking the ground and then the sun would shine, leaving that wonderful wet smell on the ground and cement. The faded rainbow in the sky with the backdrop of dark clouds.

    So Clean

    It's raining now. It has such a refreshing, cleansing scent. I can smell it through my window, compelling me to go back outside. I want to tilt my head up towards the sky and just breathe in that smell. Time to go for a walk.

    Right Now...

    Right now it's raining. I have all of my windows open and the smell is divine. The sound of the rain pattering against the windows is delicious. I'll have a good night's sleep with the windows open and the rain coming down.

    Uhh sorry to burst your bubble but That isn't

    the smell of rain The main cause for this lovely fresh scent Is the blend of oils secreted by some plants during arid periods. When a rainstorm comes, compounds from the oils -which accumulate overtime in dry rocks and soil- are released into the air. So yeah the rain is more...

    Brings a smile to my face after every shower. I take deep breaths of it in and enjoy the renewal so to speak. It refreshes the ground and sometimes I believe it can refresh our souls. So for me I'm all about rainy days except when I'm driving ;)

    I love the smell of rain. It's like nothing else. Even the sounds of rain are soothing. It's hard to but into words but the smell of rain just makes me relax. Almost to say just take a breath and watch it rain and watch it wash away all the dust and dirt. Kind of like a new...

    This rain smell so many people seem to love is actually the smell of wet dirt. Rain is water. It smells like water. I admit that I love the smell of wet dirt. It is very relaxing.  Actinomycetes, acid, and volatile oils I love it. It stormed here last night. (rain is very...

    But It's After The Rain...

    ...that the air smells so fresh, so clean...  I grew up in the country, and the scent of damp soil, the clean fresh scent of the forest on the breeze...  takes me back to that time, and that place.

    An Almost Primal Example.

    One of my favorite scents is the smell of a loved ones bedroom after it rains.With the windows open the damp air is allowed in and is able to enhance a persons scent in and around the room, making it hang in the air. If you love that persons scent, its like an olfactory treat. in...

    Rain

    Rain fell last night...quiet, gentle rain, that tapped against my window pane, and called me back from troubled sleep, to soothe a heart too numb to weep. My loneliness was too deep and real, and like a wound that would not heal, it throbbed within me, and I knew my arms...
