A Mistpouffer is an unexplained natural sound, a sonic boom like distant cannon fire that seems to come out of the fog over large lakes or rivers. It has been recorded all over the world throughout history, and is the source of many legends. In Japan the phenomenon is called uminari meaning “cries from the sea”. In Connecticut, the Machimoodus state park gets its name from the native american name for the area, which means “place of bad noises”.
Rendering this mystical water thunder as a fragrance was as elusive as the sound itself. Foggy but not aquatic, smoky but not heavy. Natural, but in equal parts supernatural.
