I wish there was a perfume or cologne that smelled just as it does after the rain. Nothing is more soothing than it.

7. Walking barefoot on the grass

Nature provides us its own orchestra. This includes but is not limited to waterfalls, ocean waves, rivers, creeks, and streams. All of them follow their own beat.

9. Chirping birds

To accompany the orchestra of nature are its singers the chirping birds. Just like August Rush said "The music is all around us, all you have to do.. is listen."

10. Mood lighting
