“But on that day, the juxtaposition between the scent of the air before and after the rain was so massive that it mesmerised me. I felt that all those little drops of rain are drops of magic. I felt like my nose was blind before and after the rain. The volume got turned up by a million. But it was not just my sense of smell; everything around me seemed to come alive.”
“But as I research it, I found out that it is not the rain itself that smells, but the interaction between the rain and the soil releases volatile compounds into the air. These compounds are known as geosmin or earth odour.”
“In nature, it is all about scent. It gives us not only information but helps us be in the moment and experience our surroundings, food, drinks, etc. And also teaches us. How to enjoy and saviour these mindful moments. It connects us to nature, to ourselves and recharges us too.”
