What is your favorite aroma?
 
I love home fragrances as well as personal ones (currently use Miracle by Lancome or Blackberry Vanilla-Bath and Body works) but I LOOOOOVE to scent my house with natural lavendar (which I grow), spices and hot potpourri that simmers a fruity/vanilla-like scent.

I've lots of greenery in the yard--does anyone know of a good, homemade potpourri I could make from lavendar, rose, calendula, daisy? Or any ideas on backyard abundance and what to do with it. Thanks! :ivy:

Bah. Wheres my post gone? I left a post here with a link to a website about homemade pot pourri

I'm not the one to ask on the potpourri question, but I absolutely love lavendar. So calming.

On the other side of the spectrum there's the wonderful smell of brewing coffee--makes you want to get up and go!

Rain on hot pavement *is* petrichor, and one of my favorites, pairs nicely with cool water from the hose.
