Summer refreshment!
I bought Rain last Tuesday. A hot day - and the following ones should become even hotter. Actually I only wanted to visit Douglas quickly to have a look, but since Rain was on offer at a competitive price, I took him with me at short notice. At 29€/100ml I didn't have to think long, because I still know the scent from earlier. For a long time I had the summer rain of Essence as a substitute, because Rain was too expensive for me at that time. And then at some point, he wasn't around anymore.

Rain was re-released some time ago and I think he smells a little different. The old version smelled more like rain, this one is more flowery, similar to Sunflowers, only fresher, lighter and more aquatic. Of course I can also be wrong, maybe my nose picked up the notes differently back then, sometimes one and the same fragrance makes you feel it one day and the other day quite differently. When I was amazed at the resemblance to Sunflowers, I compared the scents. I especially noticed sunflowers. Do sunflowers smell like anything? I don't know myself. I can't make out individual scents with Rain. It simply smells pleasantly fresh, flowery and aquatic. The 100 ml do not come by chance, as does the name Splash. Here you can spray and fog really generously. I have not yet been able to determine any overdose.

The shelf life is quite short, after about 2 hours you can replenish it, at least with the big heat at the moment. There's nothing stopping me anyway, except for Air di Gioia. Besides, it's very pleasant to have a fresh scent in your nose when it's hot, so I like to spray on it. Doesn't hurt with the price. For me Rain is a nice scent for hot days, because I don't like citric colognes. But I think I'll wear it on cooler days too.

36 degrees and it gets even hotter ..
never turn down the beat again
36 degrees no fan
life doesn't seem hard to me at all < br /> 36 Graaaaaaaaad aaaaaaahhaahaaa.
36 Graaaaaaad aaaaaaahhaahaaaa. ...

So sing 2Raumwohnung (Inga Humpe and Tommi Eckart) and this song fits perfectly to the current heat wave. And now, hand on heart, which one of us doesn't want to cool off?

Rain would be the solution. A refreshing summer rain that reduces temperatures to a tolerable level and cools overheated minds. This is where "Rain" by Marc Jacobs comes in. My miracle weapon, not only at high temperatures. For me "Rain" is always used when olfactory background music is required.

I already like the beginning with Clementine and green/woody notes very much. Quite quickly a little freshness is added, but for me it has nothing to do with the typical smell that reminds me of rain. Wet asphalt smells different and wet earth also and yet I get the illusion of standing in the green after a heavy rain shower.

I'm surrounded by a subtle flower aroma that I couldn't define any closer. Together with mossy and woody echoes it becomes harmonious for me. There's nothing that disturbs, stings or sticks out. For me "Rain" is a perfect and completely unspectacular scent of well-being, which I wouldn't have thought Marc Jacobs would have expected at all.

Many thanks dear Santalwalti for the rehearsal, because without you I would never have known and appreciated this fragrance. When the turquoises also had the fragrance at an unbeatable price on offer, I just had to strike and I didn't regret it either.

My bottle is square, made of heavy glass, filled with light blue liquid and closed with a simple black lid. Minimalistic, functional and very beautiful, even if the handling with the 100 ml bottle for my little hands is not very easy
Rain is unisex, unagitated and actually unspectacular, but perfect for hot days, visits to the doctor, job interviews, etc. He is an all-rounder or an ever-present ... yes, that's "Rain" but by no means a so-called "gap filler", because you can't think of anything else. "Rain" is in his very special, reserved way a very, very big one, at least for me.

Dry land
No rain. No rain for weeks. The meadows in the surrounding countryside have turned into a miserable steppe. The crops face an abrupt end without further destination. The shrubs bend withered and sluggish. With the last of their strength, the trees pull the dwindling remnants of moisture out of the ground. The sky, brightly whitewashed in blue, cannot bear a shred of a dark cloud. Searing heat and dryness in all corners and actually it only needs steppe runners on the shimmering, dusty streets.
It is missing a lot, the rain, and although I always find it a bit annoying (destroyed hairstyle, speckled glasses, wet trouser hems and striking puddles near the curb paired with ruthless drivers), the longing for it grabs me and so I try to compensate it somehow by Marc Jacobs' Rain. This succeeds at least partially, if one refrains from the relatively short durability and shallow Sillage.
The prelude is showing itself fresh. The rain chord is clearly perceptible and also the top notes, especially through grass and cypress, give a fine, green character. The passion fruit only seems to be a fruity supporting component of the clementine, as it is hardly noticeably pronounced. In the course of time the orchid and sunflower appear soft and flowery-sweetish. The aquatic character does not decay when the perfume disappears and blends pleasantly with the base notes. The musk is flattering and by no means intrusive and melts with tree moss, teak wood and amber to a delicate, spicy and woody green finish without a bitter fiasco

It's raining again..
"It's raining again, oh no my love's at an end, hmmm la losing a friend" *falsch-sing* - Farewell tour of Supertramp at the Volkspark-Stadion in Hamburg. That's what it used to be called. Wow, I got to experience this! It was a very warm summer evening, and 40,000 people sang this song *in-remembrance-welfare-and-goose bumps war* Herrje, that was a long time ago, but I digress.

I have already circled Rain a few times, but could not decide to buy. Today I was on the spot again and bought it. There was only one bottle left. You want me to leave this? After that there's no more, and then the hunting starts again and the "oh, I should have only..." You know how it is. The saleswoman said that I shouldn't conjure anything up with rain and so on, because we have had exceptionally nice weather here in the north for just a few days. And when it's warm, you immediately feel like a new summer scent, no matter how many are already in the cupboard...

Now then, Rain. A beautiful refreshing fragrance for which others have already found such beautiful descriptions here. Of raindrops pearling from blades of grass. Joah, this picture fits. It really smells like rain after a long dry spell. Cool, refreshing, unsweet. Not like you sprayed yourself with perfume. But simply fragrant. The base is great. It smells like MOSHUS. And I love that. However: If you smell the musk base, the rain is almost over. The performance is not so great. That's why the fragrance is probably also available in litre bottles. So that you can (and should) spray frequently.

Next week we're going on holiday to the North Sea. And Rain has a good chance of going. Although, of course, I don't mean to evoke anything...

The grey day
Like waterfalls, it runs out of my eyes. Unruly, incomprehensible, unstoppable.

How just a moment can change a person, a whole life - your whole heart. Like nothing's ever the same again. You're not who you used to be.

When I look out the window, it unexpectedly stops raining. And the world, which until recently was a white winter wonderland, is now dressed in beautiful green and promises a new day and a new life against its will.

In the morning I almost miss the elevator to the subway. But I stop him because another girl in a wheelchair wants to go in with her companion. And of course I missed the subway and I'm late for work.

In the evening I go to my scented pub, the green temple. And actually I already know that I want to test one of the Splashes, because they are on sale and I loved Cucumber very much for a long time.

And for 30 Euros I wouldn't do anything wrong for the price today. When I spray it on, all I notice at first is its detergent freshness. It smells slightly spicy and inexplicable. But at this point I have no idea what depth it should give me.

On the way back from the shopping centre, the wheelchair user and her companion meet me. She recognizes me and against her will she smiles at me and waves. How small the world is. Despite the difficult day I also have to smile and wave to her.

The next day I spray Rain the first time for a working day and look forward to this new fragrance flirt.

Of course I know that the day will be humble, but I would not have thought that it would be so humble. But Rain also helps me to stay calm with injustices. Reminding me not to let myself be lured out of reserve. Knowing that there are more important things to do than give in to some people's bad moods. And it works. Even when the colleague sent a joke mail from my account, I just laugh and say, "well, the other one knew that I didn't write those obscure words for her and she already knows the jokes of the other one."

What did all this get me? Rain has kept my emotions in balance through his pure clean yet spicy manner - and this balance has been rewarded. I unexpectedly got the opportunity to go to a training course that really interested me. Because someone else couldn't and yes I wouldn't have got them otherwise, but hey a gift horse...

And I was happy about the heart of this person (the colleague), who behaves selflessly in contrast to many other colleagues. The person who actually always gives someone something to give his colleagues something good, something from the heart, which does not always have to do with money.

Of course, I'll have another scent flirt with Rain the next day and go to the training. Today Rain is developing a little bit differently because the weather is cold in the morning and I have to think of the statement from Herbstblond, in which she writes that Rain reminds me of the smell of cobblestones after the rain. Because today their words hit like a fist to the eye.

Of course something goes wrong again, no, this time I made the subway, but something unexpected happens and something goes wrong again. And what did Rain teach me - it's worth staying calm. Without further ado I decide to invest 10 Euro in a taxi, otherwise I would miss the whole opening credits. And Voila - I actually find one very quickly.

A black taxi driver in colourful long clothes is the saviour in my distress and asks me where to go and why I am so excited. And I'll tell him everything. He is very nice and above all very positive and says to me: "Look at the positive, the weather is so nice. And you don't go to a job interview, you go to a training course you've been given. This is all so great. No need to be so negative. Life is bad enough already, you have to see the good to keep it worth living!"

He was so nice that he drove me to the front door and I gave him 5 euros tip. He was so happy and so touched that he had tears in his eyes. And with him, I'm equal with.

And when I stand in front of the training building and relax, Rain develops smoky, as if I had lit a cigarette of washing powder. Somehow delicious.

And what shall I tell you the taxi driver was right. Even if life is often not so beautiful, it is worth it to hold on to the bad things sometimes and to concentrate on the beautiful things
Even if sometimes you need a summer rain, sometimes a storm or sometimes a thunderstorm to cleanse your heart and your senses. And even if sometimes it needs a nice person, who opens your eyes for the essential and the positive again.

Because you know, sometimes that's the crucial moment to realize that life goes on. Even if you had already believed that your heart had stopped beating.

EPILOG

The grey day

The day was grey when it began.
Heavy the mind, as dense
Mist.
Gagged the soul to make it
couldn't scream.
The spirit is trapped so that it can
could not liberate.

The day was grey when it began.
The eyes blind so that they
could not see.
The ears deaf so that they
couldn't hear.
The mouth mute, so that he
i couldn't speak.
Then God sent me a friend
and touched my heart,
and gently began to beat it.
And I heard the voice
of the heart.
Began to see the miracle of life,
began to speak of love
to life.

The day was beautiful when it began,
behind grey mist
the tender redness of the beginning
Day rested.
