Aquatic cucumber...
Judging by the name I’m pretty sure this was supposed to smell like rain, so the question is : did Demeter succeed in capturing the smell that so many people love ?

In short I’d say no. I mean it smells ok, opening with rather sharp floor cleaner notes but within a short period morphing into something sweet, slightly cucumber calone-like that ends up like so many other so-called aquatics. It’s rather fresh, soapy and clean and could easily be marketed as a unisex “cologne” in the vein of 4711 (or even a contemporary men’s beach scent) etc. without anyone raising an eyebrow.
It is very green to me and rather than rain, I envision leaves in a newly watered blooming garden.

Nothing to dislike, but a rather ordinary scent of chemical melon with a poor longevity.

Too citrusy to smell like rain
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.
