    Red face Sprinklers on a Lawn Smell?

    Hi all!

    I was just wondering if anyone here has discovered any single aroma chemical or essential oil that genuinely smells like sprinklers on a lawn during the summer time?

    Is this smell even possible to recreate? It is a very nostalgic smell to me as it reminds me of playing outside as a kid.



    Thanks for your help!

    I believe the smell you might be referring to is caused by ozone, along with some plastic/vinyl/metal compounds that may leach into the water through the hose. Iíve never smelled anything that has recreated this smell in its entirety, although Odeur 53 is somewhat close to my nose. You might be able to accomplish something similar by combining ozonic aroma chemicals with some phenolic smelling compounds to balance and softening the result with some musks.

    Some chemicals with a (vaguely) similar smell:
    Floralozone
    Cyclomyraldehyde
    Precyclemone B
    Aldehyde C-12 MNA

    You may wish to try a combination of cis-3-hexanol (leaf alcohol), violet leaf absolute, hay absolute (or coumarin), geosmin, oakmoss absolute and as Burke suggested, ozonic types (Helional, Floralozone, Scentenal, Ozofleur, etc.).

    I think that you've heard enough from others. No, not one material.

    Will take an accord of two themes to make what you want.

    Great attitude, Paul.

    You should at least give him some suggestions.

    I guess what I meant, was to pay attention to what others have suggested... and that I would only repeat what they've said...

    Okay, just a misunderstanding then. It seemed as if you were in disagreement.
