Petrichor Candles For That Rain-Soaked Scent

person Posted By: System Administrator On:

The fragrance known as Petrichor has long been lauded, with perfumers attempting to capture the clean earthy warmth that fresh rain showers deliver. Here are some of our favourite rain scented candles for those who love a downpour.

Is there anything better than the fresh fragrance of raindrops hitting dry ground? The clean earthy scent known as Petrichor is created when raindrops disturb the soil, releasing a molecule called geosmin into the air. It turns out that humans are particularly sensitive to this scent, with it connecting us to a primal understanding of the natural landscape that lives somewhere deep within.

We’ve rounded up our favorite rain-scented candles, each with a slightly different take on the Petrichor fragrance. From thunderstorms on hot city concrete, to warm summer rains falling across coastal promenades, each candle delivers a burst of freshness that will transport your senses.
