Petrichor is the smell of rain. The word comes from the Greek words 'petra', meaning stone, and 'ichor', which in Greek mythology refers to the golden fluid that flows in the veins of the immortals.

Humans are very sensitive this odor, and it takes only very small amount of the geosmin bacteria in the air for us to notice the smell. It is believed this is partly because our ancestors were quite dependent on rainy weather for survival which makes us more attuned to odor.
