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!

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.

Woodshop, especially when working with cedar.
