Aromatic

 

A pomander is a pot-pourri, a mixture of aromatic substances, ususally made into a ball, and …suspended by a chain from the neck or waist.

Nesbit’s pomander names seven flowers or aromatic substances: ambergris, lavender, rose, rosemary, myrrh, musk, and bergamot – each designating a kind of lyric that she and other women write.

From E. Nesbit’s pomander of verse 1895
