Alpine strawberries as air freshener

Apparently, as I discovered some minutes ago, Reine Des Vallees alpine strawberries make great air freshener. I'm sure other breeds would, too. All I did was put a few fruits (many of them were already dry) in a bowl in a warm room for several hours.

This is one way they could have a long-lasting, very noticeable impact. A person could put the dry fruits as a spice in potpourri.

This is where I got my seeds for them: https://thestrawberrystore.com/store#!/Alpine-Strawberry-Reine-des-Vallees/p/48051257

Note that the effect here only seems to last about a day. It probably starts to smell sooner than I noticed it (I wasn't in the room until I noticed it).

I put a spearmint leaf in my room last night, and it had a similar impact! (Except it smelled like spearmint instead of strawberries.)
