On the Facebook fragrance forum I like to browse (one of the only things I still use Facebook for anymore), someone recently asked: what are everyone's favorite nature (i.e., non-perfume) scents?

My answers off the top of my head:

Petrichor! (Rain on ground, especially warm ground that has been dry a while.)

Fresh cut grass but also certain varieties of grass and/or moss and/or other ground cover--I've never quite placed what it is, but certain grassy fields smell so sweet and warm. A coumarin scent, I believe; reminiscent of how the plant sweet woodruff smells. Sometimes forest floors have this scent too, or something similar, which makes me suspect it's moss.

The shores of Puget Sound: basically a seawater smell, but less wind-whipped and wild; quieter, and more mixed with rocks and evergreen trees and a hint of wood smoke from cabins.

Mint growing wild.

A summer night--no idea what the smell is, other than a hot earth cooling down for the evening.

What are yours?
