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 favourite 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.
