Reviews of Rain by Demeter Fragrance Library

This effort to mimick a concept that was beautifully implemented in the past - see Guerlain's Après l'Ondée - is not convincing. A thin, calone-influenced core with touches of citrus, nonspecific floral touches and whiffs of moist hair.

I get soft sillage, limited lrooand six hours of longevity on my skin.

Very watery - aptly so given the name - but too pale and anaemic to enthuse. 2.25/5.

This is a calone-like aquatic, slightly salty, & rather reminiscent of Calvin Klein's Escape. There is something quite dark-green, like vetiver, underpinning it. lt is very quiet, & fades to nothing after only ninety minutes.
l guess interpretations of rain can vary enormously, as it is not the rain that has a scent, so much as the things being rained on. l'm not sure of the setting for this one, but it's not the intoxicating garden-after-the-rain scent that l was hoping for.

Okay, this really does not smell like rain to me.

For most of my life I lived in the country, so I know the scent of rain on either green or dry grass, gravel and forests. I also know what the scent of rain on pavements and roadsides smell like. While I don't mind the scent of rain, it's not a favourite.

Rain by Demeter strikes me as being too citrusy and watery. Natural rain has more of a musty smell. This trickery of a scent has a clean laundry kind of smell to it as well.

I'm somewhat disappointed seeming that I was only having a conversation with a friend the other day about bottling the scent of rain, and became rather excited about testing this. I can't get past the citrus layers.

Surprisingly Rain lasts a relatively long time, especially on the skin, which is rare for a Demeter scent. It's a pity that the lasting Demeter couldn't be a fragrance I liked.

This is a disturbing and slightly repellent scent for me. It is the scent of someone who has just burst into the house after hiking through the hills all day. That almost indecent wet fresh oxygeny air smell; damp jacket, wind-blown hair. But the part which makes is unpleasant it the hint of wet dog. It makes me jump away from my wrist with a shudder. It's not the smell of 'rain', its the smell of 'rain on things'. I just wish those things had been leaves, rocks or even soil, not barbour jackets, hair and dogs!

If my dog smelled like this after it was in the rain, then I would try to sell him as the best smelling dog in the world. I don't know what kind of dog you have... maybe you spray him with your fragrances once in a while? :OWell anyways, this definately does NOT smell like rain in any sense. There is a pure citrus note in this, like tangerines as someone else mentioned before. I would say tangerines mixed with water. Smells great but in no sense loyal to Demeter's description.

A cool aquatic that I like as a linen spray in the summer. Doesn't smell anything like a rainstorm.

This reminded me of tangerines. I like tangerines but I wanted some Rain.
