noun [mass noun] 

ORIGIN: 960s, blend of petro- ‘relating to rocks’ [the smell is believed to be caused by a liquid mixture of organic compounds which collects in the ground] and ichor.

Petrichor captured through its essence.
A pleasant smell that frequently accompanies the first rain after a long period of warm, dry weather: other than the petrichor emanating from the rapidly drying grass, there was not a trace of evidence that it had rained at all.
