    Default Petrichor / Scent of rain

    Hello,

    Could anyone please recommend a fragrance that smells like the scent after fresh rain fall?

    I'm not even sure if there is such a thing, I searched for petrichor fragrances but found nothing.

    Thank you!

    There is: Angéliques sous la Pluie (angelicas in the rain) from the Frederic Malle line.

    Yes, I was thinking about that one too. I guess petrichor is a mix of warm earthy notes, reminiscent of clay, and mineralic, clean notes. I'd love to get something that is a mix of Eau d'Italie's clay accord, AslP top & heart notes and Arboretum's earthy greenness. Maybe with some ambergris and gunpowder thrown in too.

    On Sillage:

    If someone can smell me at more than an arm's length away, I'm probably wearing too much of whatever I applied; if she can distinctly make out the top notes, then perhaps I left the house a bit too soon..

    On icebreaker:

    I tend to compliment people on their frags to make short talks rather than anything more meaningful.

    I agree with this. The search function may be helpful to you.

    Apart from the ones already listed, a few other frags in the "after the rain" category immediately come to mind:

    Victrix by Profumum
    Under the Arbor and Black March by CB-I Hate Perfume
    Odeur 53 by CdG

    Black March by CBI Hate Perfume is VERY realistic. It's unbelievably so. I have a sample, which I love, but not to wear.
