theres a reason we love

Why Does Rain Smell Good? The scent, known as petrichor, is the result of a various factors; Oils secreted by some plants during dry periods are released into the air when it rains. Also, rain fall results in the production of chemicals by actinomycetes, soil-dwelling bacteria. These aromatic compounds combine to create the pleasant scent when rain hits the ground. Another scent associated with rain is ozone. During a thunderstorm, lightning can split oxygen and nitrogen molecules in the atmosphere, and they in turn can recombine into nitric oxide. This substance interacts with other chemicals in the atmosphere to form ozone, which has a sharp smell faintly reminiscent of chlorine.
