Memento Mori (Petrichor)


- +

If you have been looking for a perfume that smells like rain, this oil is for you. A unique fragrance blend inspired by the earthy, fresh smell of petrichor, the scent of rain on dry soil. It smells just like the special moments after a summer storm, when dirt and concrete are warm and wet and there's a faint scent of moss lingering in the air...  If our Cemetery Gates blend is like wandering through the headstones, Memento Mori is like lingering in the crypts.

To Use

Apply directly to the skin.

The average application will last 3 to 4 hours but can be reapplied throughout the day depending on your preference. As with all fragrance and essential oils you should patch test with your skin before using and discontinue if irritation occurs.

Our perfume base is made using natural oils. Because they are alcohol free, these scents will not overwhelm your surroundings as oil based perfumes remain closer to the wearer and provide personal fragrance. 



For safety and sanitary reasons, we do not accept returns on perfume oils and fragrance mists. Personal taste in fragrance is subjective so we always suggest that you try any perfume as a sample before purchasing a full size vial if you are unsure.

I've ordered a few scents that approximate petrichor. This one is the closest

Not good as the candle was

I bought two things with the same scent the candle was fine and would buy it again but the oil perfume smell like soap when it becomes mild somehow it smell like petrichor but not as good as candle is

Delightfully spooky

It's perfect for when I want to be a public cryptid. Makes me think of old gravestones and mysterious mossy knolls.


This perfume smells as close to a real petrichor as I imagine is possible to get in a bottle. It has everything missing from the other perfumes, realistic dirt notes, lots of wet greens and geosmin.

Wasn’t as earthy as I thought it would be.

The smell of petrichor is very specific to me, and as lovely as the packaging was and as nice as the smell is, it missed the mark for me. It had almost an antiseptic smell to me behind the hints of rain & dirt… like a vague memory of what petrichor truly is. The scent wasn’t unpleasant- it just didn’t do it for me. After checking around and having others sniff it to see if they loved it, I gifted it to a friend who liked it a lot. Again, it’s not bad, it’s just not that damp, wet, earth smell I was going for (which makes me wonder how so many people who reviewed stated it smells just like that). I’d still recommend the company and products! The exact smell of this specifically wasn’t for me, and I’m outside a lot… I know this smell.

It smells exactly like fresh rain and wet dirt. Uncanny
