Whenever I visit a foreign country I look for things that are special to that country. While in the US I found my family and friends having potpourri in their house. The smell was pleasant. I went shopping I picked up something for me to bring it back home.
Potpourri is just dried flower petals and spices. A concentrate of a light perfume matching the aroma of the potpourri is sold along with it I picked lavender.
I just had to get back and use it and use it I did when I had a party for a few of my friends and family. The gentle aroma welcomed them all.
Have you picked up anything special when you visited foreign countries?
