Supercell

Brand: Sixteen92

Scent Description: A conceptual, atmospheric fragrance that bottles the essence of a Spring thunderstorm. The first cracks of ozonic lightning in the distance, rolling humid air, sharp green grass under heavy grey skies, the smell of rain on hot asphalt, crushed green stems, windblown hay, soaked earth and ancient branches snapped open by the forces of nature.

Released: Limited Edition Spring 2015

  1. To me it’s that specific smell of rain when it just starts and hot asphalt starts to get wet, before quickly morphing into the scent of grass and leaves and flowers bruised by rain, broken branches and damp hay, just that richly wet and green scent of a long, heavy downpour in the summer.

  2. as someone who grew up in the heart of tornado alley, i was intrigued when i saw a scent that was created to evoke the same feeling of being outside during a storm. unfortunately, all i can get on me is sharp, sharp green and nothing else. even more, it doesn’t really smell like the softness of being out in a field; it smells like someone is mowing the lawn.

  3. Humid sweet grass + wet leaves scent. I don’t get any florals or asphalt, just sweet soaking wet grass and leaves. It smells a lot like a blazing hot summer thunderstorm + a pond. It’s really evocative, though not the most wearable thing.

  4. Blind bought a full-size bottle of this during the most recent resurrection, but I let it rest for a few weeks in fear of getting the dreaded cigarette stench that I’ve read it can turn into on others. Initially it’s a blast of humid ozone, with underlying green notes that smell as if they’re being carried by a strong wind. The humid notes seem to cool down and become cleaner as the scent progresses, but it never veers into laundry detergent territory. Occasionally I get glimpses of wet asphalt and subtle floral notes, but the rain carried by a strong wind vibe dominates. I’m thrilled that this one met my expectations. It’s my understanding that the formulation is a bit different every year. While it was minimal on my skin, I can see how some might get that rank cigarette note if their skin amps up the damp asphalt note,
