Modern Frangrance Holder

When I think of potpourri I can’t help but think of decorative wooden bowls and sheer fabric sachets in country houses, but this potpourri vessel puts an industrial twist on the classic with steel mesh sides and supporting cedar obelisks. The pours mesh gently holds dried flowers, fruit, and other plant material and the shape mimics the movement of the scent as it is released into the atmosphere. Own one of two sizes here.

    This is not cute at all!

  • Can’t believe this got onto Yanko, can’t believe someone could write ‘the shape mimics the movement of the scent as it is released into the atmosphere’ what!!! The mesh edges of the model or actual product (it appears to be available for sale)are unfinished, it looks as though you’d cut yourself or catch your clothes on it. Definitely needs a lot more finishing.

    Product Tank has no idea what hes talking about. this product is “industrial” in design cues, meaning its SUPPOSED to look unfinished and raw. When was the last time you came close enough to a potpourri bowl to “catch your clothes on it”??? Get out of here.

    It is an industrial look, but product tank brings a good point about the edges that look unfinished. It could hurt someone. I move stuff around my house all the time, wether you get close to the bowl or not is irrelevant (would you display knives on your table just because you don’t get close to it? What about kids?). The fact is that it looks like it could hurt (scratch) someone.

    This product follows the general aesthetic of the design group who conceived it, so I applaud them for their continuity of theme. There’s good points on either side here: the material choice is very unwelcoming and potentially snagging, but the intended use does dictate little to no physical interaction. It looks unrefined and unfinished, but that was clearly the aesthetic intent. If that’s the look you want, then it makes a nice piece of art. If that’s not the look you prefer, then move on.
    There’s no sense or decency in fighting someone over the design intent of their fragrance cradle…

  • I think some of you need to re-read what I said, particularly alex. The article saying the shape mimics the movement of scent as it’s released into the atmosphere is just marketing BS. I’ve never seen scent, like smoke, perform a 30 to 45 degree angle change, it curves and twists. It’s personal opinion, but I have a thing about marketing speel not being honest. I have no problem with an industrial aesthetic but this is achieved with the obelisks and hexagonal perforated steel alone. If you look at the way this has been made, some edges are folded over others not, this is just laziness or bad manufacturing, either have all raw edges or all well finished, why half and half? It has also been made from small sheets exposing nasty joins, why not made from one continuous sheet to look cleaner, this would also be less time consuming in manufacture? The obelisk in the long version doesn’t sit flat to the surface. This is intended to be constructive criticism, but if just a few small tweaks were made, then I think the makers could hopefully sell a lot more, whilst still retaining the industrial look.
