Petrichor is our premium brand and can be collected in any of our locations. Petrichor is the earthy scent produced when rain falls on dry soil. The word is constructed from Greek, petra, meaning “stone”, + ichor, the fluid that flows in the veins of the gods in Greek mythology. The smell of the air after rain is thought to be appreciated by humans because our ancestors may have relied on rainy weather for survival. This can only be collected and bottled for a short time after the first rain.

Wanaka air is from the gateway to the Southern Alps. Wanaka lies in the heart of Mount Aspiring National Park, a wilderness of glaciers, snowfields, beech forests and alpine lakes and rivers.
West Coast air
West Coast air is from a region of New Zealand on the west coast of the south island, one of the most remote areas of the country. It is a rugged and wild place of rivers, rainforests, and glaciers… and very few people!
Tekapo air is from the less populated Canterbury region on New Zealand’s South Island and is marked by grassy plains, clear lakes and snow-capped mountains. The air here is so clear that the International Dark Sky Reserve is based here at Mount Saint John Observatory offering crystal clear views of the stars and planets.
