J told me recently that he loves the smell of soil and thunderstorms. I realized I had an imp of Lightning sitting in the “to try” box, so I thought I’d give it a whirl.
bq. _”Lightning slashing the midnight skies over the endless reaches of the ocean. The electric tang of ozone, marine notes, and a drop of sharp rain.”_
Wet, on the wand and on my skin, this does remind me of the smell of rain and a thunderstorm. It’s a very crisp, clean scent, appropriate for hot weather.
As it dries, I am reminded distinctly of Dirty. Most people say that Dirty smells like dryer sheets; not to me, but Dirty is also not a favorite.
Lightning, on the other hand, does smell like dryer sheets, to me. Just like ’em.
