Especially In the Summer - I grew up in Montana, and in the summertime, when that thunder started rolling and the first drops of rain would fall, I would go and sit outside and just breathe in that wonderful smell.

October Morning - Last night I fell asleep to the sounds of a steady autumn rain. It was rather warm -- high 50's -- and I opened the window wide to allow the sounds and smells of the night to mingle with my subconscience while I slept. When I awoke, there was a deep...

Life - There's no other way of describing it, but the Earth smells like life every time the rain stops. Gosh, I love that smell.

Wow... So Fresh! - I think they should make a scent for this, for household cleaners! I love to step outside, after it rains. I love the smell of it. Even though I live in a concrete jungle (the city), it still smells nice, after the rain. And the air smells so crisp and clean...

Petrichor - Even the name sounds right. Of course, Petrichor was originally used to describe how the Australian bush smells after rain. That smell of Eucalyptus, wet earth and clay just makes it feel as if the earth is opening up and drinking in the rain happily. I love a burning...

Like the Fresh Clean Smell - One of the things I miss most about my time spent in Florida. It rains a lot and smells so fresh after. Here when it rains it takes a lot before it smells that clean and fresh. Too much smog and dust.

Just Breathing - I'm a sunshine girl, but occasionally I love it when it rains. It's a smell that you can not replicate. Sometimes, I want to play in it and other times, I want to have a cup of my favorite coffee or tea and just watch it fall. I wish today were a rainy day.

When I was younger I would always run outside when things got heated between other people or If I was being yelled at. My favorite place to go was under this big tree but it only felt right when it was raining because the smell would sooth me and I could smile again.
