Potpourri is used inside the home to give the air a pleasant smell. The word “potpourri” comes into English from the French word “pot-pourri.” The French term has two connotations. It is the French name for a Spanish stew with a wide variety of ingredients called “olla podrida,” specialty of the town of Burgos. The word was taken and copied by the French military during the Napoleonic occupation of Burgos (1808-1813). Literally, however, the word “pot” in French has the same meaning as it does in Spanish and English, while the word “pourri” means rotten. In English, “potpourri” is often used to refer to any collection of miscellaneous or diverse items.
