Alkemia Mist Becoming Rain was launched in 2018, created by Sharra Lamoureaux and has notes of rainwater, mist drenched hazel wood, meadow grasses, sage blooms, orris root, grey amber. .
From the brand: "Deep dark, cool and mysterious"
"When the black herds of the rain were grazing,
In the gap of the pure cold wind
And the watery hazes of the hazel
Brought her into my mind,
I thought of the last honey by the water
That no hive can find.
Brightness was drenching through the branches
When she wandered again,
Turning sliver out of dark grasses
Where the skylark had lain,
And her voice coming softly over the meadow
Was the mist becoming rain."
- Austin Clarke, The Lost Heifer

Reddit - "This one nails exactly what it's going for in my opinion. When I first opened the bottle it smelled of freshly cut grass. Then when I applied it to my skin the grass smelled faded and mingled with other really green smells, all coated with the damp scent that plants get in a light drizzle. It's wearable and unique, I absolutely loved it!"
Reddit - "On me, it smells like an early morning misty/rainy fall day. Wet, a little bit of decaying leaves, wet asphalt with a bit of herbalness to it."
Alkemia review - "On me it smells just like when you were walking outside while it rained and now your clothes are wet and the pavement is too. The air is still quite humid, the sky gray but things are slowly starting to dry a bit overtime. Quite a lovely scent if you love the smell of rain in a city in my opinion. More like the aftermath of a storm rather than a little shower. Suitable for the rainy days in winter!"
