    Hey! Thanks for commenting! I think the word you were thinking of is petrichor? It means the smell of the air after rain.

    I joined this group just to tell you that those are amazing words. I've heard of only a few among that list ... Sonder, being one of them. Doesn't sonder mean the smell that hangs in the air after it rains?

    Thanks to this list, I think I'm not going to write an epilogue, but rather a denouement. :) Thanks for sharing!
