    Great question!

    I can really see L'Heure Bleue for that moment when the rain is ending, the clouds are moving away toward the opposite horizon from which they came, and the sun is just starting to come back and dry things off. Oh yeah! But if I want to feel that way when there hasn't been a drop of rain for weeks - Un Jardin apres la Mousson.

    I don't know why, but for heavy rain I want my Bulgari Black. The rubber lining in those dark clouds, perhaps? Hmmmm. Maybe it's the thought of a cup of tea. There's just something about it that calls out to me when we're having big rain.

    YSL Paris "Jardins Romantiques" seems to me like a rainy day scent- especially in spring of course.
    Or Nocturnes by Caron ... greenish florals are nice with rain.
    Oh! And Molinard de Molinard.

    I second UJM by Hermes- if nothing else for the staying power- it wouldn't easily wash away.

    'Apres L'Ondee' ? If you like L'Heure Bleu this will work for you. The name means something like 'after the (summer) rainstorm'. Unfortunately the Parfum has been discontinued but the EDT is beautiful. To be enjoyed with some Debussy from the same era
