I got introduced to potpourri when I was spending a week with a friend in the US where I was on a package holiday. I spent around 55 days of which 21 days were for the package and the rest of the days I spent with the extended family and friends.
That pleasant smell in the guest room took me to a decorative tiny pot in which was placed some dry stuff. Obviously I was curious and my friend explained to me what it was
She also told me that after a while the smell disappears and therefore she needs to spray a mild cologne or perfume over the dry stuff.
She took me to a store. I picked up the paraphernalia – potpourri, lavender perfume and a pretty looking container.
I used this for quite a long time specially for our guest room.
Do you use potpourri in your house?
