Gorse flower perfume. Tricky prickles when picking but worth it for the subtle, sweet scent.

Mmmm i can almost smell the scent from here. I bet the heat from the oven enhances the fragrance.

It might explode @Mrs5K, it’s almost pure alcohol! Many people ignore the humble gorse flower, but I think it has a wonderful, subtle fragrance.

Morning @Rups. I love gorse- in the Spring the smell when you are walking past it can be arresting, and all from a wild shrub❤️ Julia x

The ongoing cycle of scent in my house. Remember those rose hips I used for perfume? After I reached the desired concentration of fragrance, I removed the rose hips, and dried them. Then added them to one of my hanging potpourri baskets. This basket is a mixture of wormwood, lavender, lemon balm and mugwort. When Winter is over, I empty my potpourri containers, and ready them for new bouquets collected over Spring and Summer. The discarded potpourri goes into my kindling bucket, and when Winter arrives again, it makes a sweet smelling kindling for lighting fire. The ash is then put on parts of the garden. Full circle.
