Topic: After the rain fragrance

Hi guys! I'm new here but I have been a lurker for quite some time already. Anyway, I need help. I am looking for a fresh green floral fragrance that is not too sharp but has a complex dirty ending (mossy is good but not too much). I like something that is like the smell of the earth after the rain---that refreshing. I tried Pleasures and it's close although I find it too sharp. Stella too is great but too rosy. Then there's Noa but I do not care for the sweet note at the dry down. I'd appreciate your help very much. glad

Re: After the rain fragrance

How strange as I have just ordered a perfume called `After the Rain` about 10 mins ago online. It is from Arran Arromatics which is a company based in Scotland (I think) and is often sold in UK department stores. 30

Re: After the rain fragrance

I was going to suggest Apres l'Ondee from the thread title, but I know exactly what you're looking for.

This fragrance is actually modeled after and smells exactly like the earth after rain. It's got a rich, moist soil smell with a touch of greenery and the faintest whiff of flowers in the distance. It is precisely the smell of gardening after a spring rain.

It's a costly blind buy (especially to the Philippines), but I know you wouldn't be let down. It's just gorgeous.

Don't just take my word for it, though - check out the reviews!

Never give up on a dream just because of the time it will take to accomplish it.
The time will pass anyway.

these two are my faves, truth is much cheaper than high line naturally so i would recommend that first. Also if you don't mind perfume oils, Alkemia on Etsy has one called Grasslands, very lovely "after rain on grass" kind of smell.<3!!

Re: After the rain fragrance

http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.2032.jpg  L`Occitane en Provence Eau de Vétyver has the wet earth vibe




http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.1023.jpg  Frederic Malle Angéliques Sous La Pluie name goes with it, but fleeting. maybe worth a test?




http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.144.jpg  Bvlgari Eau Parfumee au The Vert slightly sharp but somehow rainy




The closest I've tried to your description over all:




http://fimgs.net/images/perfume/m.5721.jpg  Miller Harris Fleurs de Bois



Not one of these is properly classified as green floral, but they all wear a little like green florals on me, strangely: mossy, a little fresh, herbal.

Truth is I tried this about a decade ago but I remember it being too vanillic on the drydown for me. Is the men's version any better? I might give this a second try though. Thanks. glad

I will definitely try the Miller Harris if I find it here. Thanks. glad Bvlgari Au The Vert is fresh but I find it too mild for me.
