In India, there is a special fragrance called Mitti Attar created to commemorate the moment that the yearly drought is broken by Monsoon rains. Sun-baked clay is distilled into sandalwood oil capturing the scent of the fragrant bacteria that are brought back to life by the rain.
In North America, our environmental conditions are different but here too there are scent memories that tell the coming of the rain. During the early spring, when the Northern Forest is moist with melted snow, it often rains in the early morning just as the sun is rising. The storm leaves an ecstatic ozone scent in the air that mingles with the moist forest fragrances. The forest is dense with the scent of conifers, the only trees with leaves at this time of year, humus and fungi. In the lingering mist, the forest spirits stretch and come to life as the sap rises in the trees.
10 Pellets nested in Fir Balsam and Cedar tips come in a Golden Tin.
