What is the smell of rain ??
– the blood of stone.
‘It’s used to describe the distinct scent of rain in the air.
Or, to be more precise, it’s the name of an oil
that’s released from the Earth into the air
before rain begins to fall.’
The smell had actually been described already by a small perfumery industry operating out of India,
which had successfully captured and absorbed the scent in sandalwood oil.
They called it “matti ka attar” or “Earth perfume”.
But its source was still unknown to science.
