    This isn't going to give much description - but the exact word for this eludes me! It's a word describing a dismal atmosphere or when there's just a general ambience of melancholy, gloom, or despondence. Keep in mind, this is a word for the atmosphere - not the depression itself. Thanks!

    I wonder whether you are thinking of miasma.

    If you give us a sentence or two, that will help people think of possibilities.

    That's it!
    Thanks a bunch! It's been niggling at the back of my head the entire day.
