HOME-SPIRATION: Lost Art of Potpourri

I was shopping in Pottery Barn yesterday and came across some amazing home scents. Sitting on the table next to these delicious candles was some even more delicious smelling potpourri. I don’t know what shocked me more the fact that potpourri still exists or that this potpourri actually smelled amazing! The only memory I have of potpourri is the crusty, fragrant-less potpourri from my grandmas bathroom. So I wanted to do a little research… does modern potpourri exist? and how does one use it without aging themselves 50 years? Here are a few of my home-spirations that might inspire you to get your potpourri on!
