The smell of a summer thunderstorm in my bathroom

with 2 comments

A friend mentioned the fragrance of petrichor following a storm in Seattle, and so I decided that I also would enjoy the fragrance, which is prominent in Chiseled Face’s Summer Storm shaving soap and aftershave.

The lather’s excellence went well beyond the fragrance, and then my iKon Shavecraft 101 smoothed away all traces of stubble, comfortably and efficiently. A rinse, dry, and splash of the aftershave (after shaking it well), and I’m ready to (Nordic) walk.

  1. How do you create smells like rain, or the beach?

  2. Beats me. I don’t have that much knowledge, but I will recommend The Emperor of Scent, by Chandler Burr, a profile of Luca Turin and what we know about smell. Fascinating book. Burr later was perfume editor for the NY Times, at least for a while. Inexpensive secondhand copies at the link.
