Petrichor The smell of earth after rain.
Can you think of a smell that relaxes you more than the way it smells outside just after the rain. It's as if everything has been renewed and washed clean. There's something about the smell that centers me and makes me feel at peace. Of course we are preparing to get another deluge as a storm is brewing in the gulf right now, but I'm still happy about the rain and I pray that everyone makes it through the storm.
If you would like to get a little more scientific on the scent then here ya go...
