Sample Sentences & Example Usage

  1. Deodatta V. Shenai-Khatkhate:

    After a long time of hot and dry weather, the first rain of the season creates an exquisite fragrance in the air - an earthy scent that permeates around us, refreshing our minds and uplifting our spirits. I love that amazingly wonderful sweet scent. Did you know that this elegant fragrance has an interesting name too? It's called "Petrichor"; a word derived from Greek language, i.e. "Petra" meaning ‘stone’, while "Ichor" is the fluid that flows in the veins of the Gods - per Greek mythology. Petrichor is surely a divine perfume that must be a gift from Supreme Power. If my life were a fragrance, I would like her to smell like Petrichor.

Je aime ce puissant parfum de séduction - émanant de l'union tant attendue de pluie tendre et douce tombe à terre soif sèche, et d'inciter une intimité instantanée dans l'air. Intéressant, cet élégant parfum envoûtant a un nom aussi. ça se appelle "petrichor"; un mot composé dérivé de la langue grecque - comprenant "petra" qui signifie «la pierre», et «ichor» qui signifie «le fluide qui coule dans les veines des dieux" selon la mythologie grecque. à mon avis, petrichor est sûrement un parfum divin qui doit être un cadeau du pouvoir suprême. Si ma vie était un parfum, je aurais sûrement l'aime à sentir comme Petrichor.
