Perfumes for a Rainy Day

Rainbow last night after a brief downpour

For the last few days, we've been enjoying short bursts of rain, which leave that smell of wet earth that I just love.  What perfumes go with rain?  Here's a few that work for me: 

Donna Karan DKNY - this perfume smells just like a rainy day.  Wet concrete, wet plants, wet soil and vodka...what's not to like?

L'Artisan Dzongkha - captures the melancholy of rain and vibrates with dirty iris, which grows best in damp earth.

Chanel Sycomore - better outdoors than indoors, with vetiver that promises rain, or fire, just around the corner.

Etro Messe de Minuit - musty and dark, like old, wet headstones.

Serge Lutens Gris Clair - Wuthering Heights in a bottle.

What are your rainy day perfumes?

  1. Don't hate me but ... Belle en Rykiel. :) There aren't too many rainy days here in CO, though -- in Boston I need more rainy day scents!

    1. Elisa, it's impossible to hate you...and I wish I could love BeR on me! Actually, I can see how it could work on a rainy day with the cool, incensy notes. Do you miss the rain?

    2. Nope, I really love the sunshine ... and in the summer we get some pretty cool thunderstorms out here, but they pass quickly. In Boston it would sometimes rain for days/weeks on end. HATED that.
