petrichor: the scent of the dry earth or pavement after a rain.

I just LOVE that smell – didn’t know there was a name for it…

(The rain has finally stopped here)

    Hi – I love the smell of fresh rain on dry earth or pavement. Woodsmoke too. Sweetpeas. There, my three favorite smells in the world. I didn’t know it had a name (petrichor), or that other people loved it too.

    I absolutely love the smell of wet pavement or cement. I’ve always loved it but now that I’m 7 months pregnant I’m even more obsessed with it. It is so addicting!
