This is one of the most interesting aroma chemicals out there, and everyone should have it. It’s a bit hard to rate this, as it would be like rating rain or dirt on a scale of one to five. Geosmin is what you smell in the air when it rains; that is, it rises from the ground. In trace amounts, that’s what it smells like. When you smell it straight out of the bottle, it smells like dirt. It also smells like beets, and I often taste it in salads.

Geosmin is everything that I imagined it would be…wonderful. I also feel that everyone should have some.

Geosmin is an exceptional material. Many aroma chemicals give you a very abstract blurred image – is it fruit or seed or tree? Anything is possible, just use your imagination. In case of geosmin you’ve got an exact image of wet soil with outstanding naturalness and you can hardly correlate geosmin with something else. Intensively popularized by Brosius (Demeter, CB I Hate Perfume) this one can be used in the high variety in genres when you need the natural effect of soil, forest rain, river water, melting ice and things like this.
This substance is extremely intensive and very easy to overdose. You may think that even the pure material smells not so offensive, but I highly recommend to dilute it to 0,1% or even to 0,01%. Higher quantities can give you an effect of Peppa pig’s muddy puddles, moldy vault, sepulchral dampness and other side effects, otherwise you need a gothic gloomy perfume. So despite this stuff is very costly, its profitable because you need just tiny traces of it.
wonderful very powerful, even in the bottle you can smell this from meters away. damp earth

I’ve always bragged that I can smell when it is about to rain. Then someone told me that it is the rain on soil that I am smelling. I’ve always loved that smell and geosmin is exactly that. Just a whiff will send me “forest bathing,” wherever I happen to be. What a find!
