🌧️This smell is called Petrichor. This pleasant scent is as if mother earth is rewarding you for dealing with her anger in a form that is a rainy storm.
🌧️It is a nice, calming, clean and natural fragrance, distinct from the less pleasant odours from everyday items like air-cons, chlorine from the swimming pool, or fried chicken.

β–ͺ️Petrichor is activated when rain hits the ground.
β–ͺ️The impact releases a molecule in the soil called geosmin.
β–ͺ️These molecules float up into the air, which allows our sensitive noses to capture the smell.
β–ͺ️During rainstorms the oils from the plants also release a smell just like geosmin.
β–ͺ️Finally, electrical discharges from lightning bolts can cause some of Oxygen atoms to combine with O2, producing O3: ozone.
β–ͺ️Lightning-produced ozone has a clean, sharp scent.

πŸ‘¨πŸ»β€πŸ”¬Professor Mark Buttner, a microbiologist who heads research at John Innes Centre in England, said “Lots of animals are sensitive but human beings are extremely sensitive to it.”

π‘ͺ𝒐𝒐𝒍 𝑭𝒂𝒄𝒕𝒔:
1️⃣ Geosmin is becoming more common as a perfume ingredient.
2️⃣ Australian researchers Isabel Joy Bear and R. G. Thomas discovered petrichor in 1964.
3️⃣ The word petrichor was contrived from the Greek word β€œpetros”, meaning “stone”, and β€œichor”, meaning “the fluid that flows in the veins of the gods.
