The lovely smell when rain hits dry soil?

There is a word for that.

"Petrichor (/ˈpɛtrɪkɔːr/) is the earthy scent produced when rain falls on dry soil"
I have put the ignorant, inflammatory bore on ignore.

Yes, that's a wonderful smell. Also, the smell after summer rain hits a freshly cut lawn which has not been 100% raked. I used to get this a lot on golf courses back when I used to play (I played over 100 rounds a year between ages 14 & 19 - not bad seeing as how short our seasons were). That one only got ruined when said lawn (fairway and/or green in this case) had just been chemically fertilized.
