Odoriferous or Sweet-Scenting Bags


  • 1 ounce lavender flowers
  • 2 drachms pulverized orris
  • 1/2 ounce bruised rosemary leaves
  • 5 grains musk
  • 5 drops attar of rose


Mix well, sew up in small flat muslin bags, and cover them with fancy silk or satin.

These are very nice to keep in your bureau drawers or trunk, as the perfume penetrates through the contents of the trunk or drawers. An acceptable present to a single gentleman.
