How to Make Pomander Balls
Here’s how to make pomander balls, which are simply oranges pierced by cloves. As the fruit dries, it releases a lovely fragrance. Pomanders make beautiful centerpieces, gifts for friends, tree ornaments, and air fresheners.
What Is a Pomander?
Medieval herbalists used pomanders—mixtures of fragrant, dried herbs in cloth bags or perforated boxes—to ward off illness or bring strength and good fortune.
The word “pomander” derives from the French pomme d’ambre, meaning “apple of amber”—a reference to the round shape of the object and the occasional addition of ambergris (an aged substance from the bile duct of a sperm whale). Strongly scented pomanders of ambergris were used in Europe during the time of the Black Death to (unsuccessfully) cover up and purify “bad air.”
Today, pomander balls are usually a lot simpler most consist of an orange or other citrus fruit studded with cloves and dusted with other spices. See our own recipe below!

How to Make Orange and Clove Pomander Balls
- Take firm oranges and stud them with whole cloves. That’s it!
- You can also use a toothpick to make pre-made holes this is helpful for children because the cloves can hurt their little hands (and ours).
- Be creative and arrange the cloves in diamonds, circles, or other patterns. As the orange dries, it will release a delicate, spicy fragrance.
- For a stronger aroma, cover the entire orange with cloves, and then roll it in a mixture of spices such as: 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, 1 teaspoon ground cloves, 1 tablespoon ground nutmeg, 1 tablespoon allspice, ¼ cup powdered orris root. Leave the orange in the mix for a week, turning once a day.
- To hang your pomander, run a long wire through the orange make a knot at the bottom and a loop at the top for hanging. Or, you can tie red ribbon around your pomander for a festive look!
How to Make It Last
If you want your pomanders to last, store in a paper bag for a few weeks. Use lots of cloves which are a natural preserving agent. The cloves will draw out the juices and they’ll shrink in size. Dusting with cinnamon helps, too, as cinnamon functions as an anti-fungal.
Ideas for Using Pomanders
- Arrange the cloves in special shapes and patterns. For Halloween, make a jack-o’-lantern for Thanksgiving, try a turkey for Christmas, a Christmas tree!
- Create a centerpiece for your next holiday meal.
- Give to friends, teachers, and neighbors in a plastic bag with a red ribbon!
- Try putting an orange pomander at the bottom of your Christmas stockings.
- Use small oranges (or other small citrus) to create a fragrant ornament for the Christmas tree.
- Once dried, hang pomanders in your closet or add to your drawers like a sachet.
If you have cinnamon left over, try making these Cinnamon Ornaments.

The History of Pomander Walk
Among the high-rise buildings and skyscrapers forged with steel, there lies a quaint, enchanting place that is a world of its own: Pomander Walk. Take a stroll down 94th street, past the brick and mortar buildings New Yorkers call home, past the crowd of unfamiliar faces that might as well be clouded in mist, and look up. no, not at the colossal, steel giants. there, you see? It’s a sign hanging with gold letters against a black background that reads “Pomander Walk” stylized in fancy curves. And just below that sign is the gateway to a tiny slice of paradise.
Up the steps, you enter and wonder if you’ve gone through a portal to another century, a distant past, another lifetime. In the intersection of the Pomander courtyard, there is a lamp post surrounded on both sides by cobblestone houses that look like they came out of a Brothers Grimm tale. Flora and fauna decorate and line the path of the homes. One might imagine that fairies play hide and seek amongst the bright, colorful flowers that appear as if they’ve been airbrushed with a plethora of paints. One might imagine that this is the place where Hansel and Gretel baked a witch in the oven or maybe the place where noblemen and ladies dined and gossiped in a time where kings and queens ruled. Maybe, somewhere Red Riding Hood is bringing a basket of flowers to her grandmother and the Wolf not too far behind.
And just on the other side of Pomander Walk, beyond the courtyard, there is another gate, another lock, another portal. This gate, this paradise in the midst of the concrete jungle, perhaps is not a paradise at all. What dark secrets, what mystery lies behind the Pomander gates? A gate to heaven or a gate to hell? A gate to peace or a gate to betrayal? A rose wrapped in thorns? Gates to another world? Gates to a future unforetold? Or Pandora’s box?
Pomander Walk, located on the Upper East Side of Manhattan between Broadway and West End Avenue, is an official New York City landmark. The apartment complex is located between 94th street and 95th street with 27 buildings in total. The place was named after the 1910 romantic comedy Pomander Walk written by Louis N. Parker.
One could describe this place as a slice of paradise in the concrete jungle. Unlike the steel-encumbered high-rise buildings that encompass the New York City landscape, Pomander Walk is described as Tudoresque. The houses resemble the characteristics of Storybook Houses.
Tudoresque refers to the Tudor Period (between 1463 and 1603) during which the Tudor Dynasty reigned. The most notable being the reign of King Henry VIII.
The complex was built in 1921 by Thomas J. Healy—the owner of restaurants, catering establishments, and Pomander Walk. Healy bought the estate with plans to build a hotel but did not have the necessary funds to do so. Pomander Walk was built as a temporary means of financial support until Healy had the funds for his hotel. However, Healy died before his dream could be fulfilled and Pomander Walk remained.
The complex was designed by King and Campbell—a New York architecture firm. The estate faced complications when it deteriorated into a state of decay and in jeopardy of being demolished. Fortunately, the historic location was designated as a National Historic Landmark in 1982. In 2009, the complex was renovated into the awe-inspiring beauty we see today.
Pomander Walk remains a site to behold. It is truly a piece of history that can be treasured forever. While the location is private and not open to the public, we can still appreciate the enigmatic and curious thoughts it inspires in one’s imagination.
- Take your orange and draw lines to section your orange into quarters. (This is where your ribbon will go later so don’t decorate on or near these lines)

In earlier times, there was more at stake in the use of an "apple of amber" (the literal meaning of Anglo-French pomme de ambre, modified to "pomander" in Middle English) than the addition of holiday spirit. Pomanders were used to offset foul odors and were also believed to protect against disease. Early pomanders were usually mixtures of fragrant spices, herbs, etc. in small metal containers, and they were often worn on chains, as jewelry, around the neck or at the waist. Today, we no longer believe pomanders ward off infections, but we still like nice-smelling things, and the word pomander survives to name the modern version of this aromatic, decorative object.
For almost fifty years in the early 1900’s Pomander Gate Guesthouse on Pomander Walk (now Pomander Road) served the island as a rather exclusive accommodation for the island’s visitors. It was owned and operated by two colorful North American gentlemen whose names were Jay Lynk and Howard Buck. According to Alice Sharples Baldwin’s writings, the facility was “the smartest, most exclusive, most amusing place to stay on the island and boasting incidentally a superb cuisine.” In her account, Sharples Baldwin tells of the time when Lady Nancy Astor while visiting Bermuda had to receive special permission from Howard Buck himself to enjoy a meal at the hotel because the restaurant was reserved for Pomander Gate guests only and the restaurant did “not take outside people for meals.”
By the 1960’s, the hotel had a swimming pool, two tennis courts and was open to the public. There were a number of locals who became members and enjoyed the use of the hotel’s amenities including if not especially its tennis courts.
In the early 1970’s a group of members purchased the property, demolished the by then deteriorating hotel and built the clubhouse and four condominiums next door. The condominiums were sold to finance the endeavor and the pool remains as a part of the condominiums. They went on to form The Pomander Gate Tennis Club Ltd. which continues to this day. A Board of Directors oversees the club’s operations.
Pomander Walk: NYC’s Most Exclusive Street
Pomander Walk is located on 95th Street, carved out mid-block between Broadway and West End Avenue on the Upper West Side. The private street that has retained its elusive and exclusive charm nearly a century after it was conceived. In fact, Pomander Walk was referred to as a “colony” when it was first designed in 1921. Accessible only to residents, you can catch a glimpse of the quaint English-inspired street through gates on 94th and 95th Streets. If you’re lucky, a friendly resident might let you in if you seem to be a kindred spirit. In 2012, we were lucky to attend a special tour inside Pomander Walk with the Historic Districts Council led by architect Daniel J. Allen, whose firm, CTA Architects performed the restoration of the hidden street.
Pomander Walk was the brainchild and business venture of Thomas Healy, an Irish immigrant and successful restauranteur and hotelier in New York. Incidentally, he was also one of the first to be indicted under federal Prohibition laws and he openly defied the 1 AM curfew laws at his hotel — a true New Yorker! Pomander Walk was landmarked in 1982 and the Landmarks Preservation Commission report states that Pomander Walk “is a prototypically ‘American’ tale combining a pragmatic entrepreneurial spirit with an unabashed romanticism.”
Pomander Walk was named after and inspired by the set of a popular play of the same name which featured a London street from the Georgian Period. According to the New York Times in 1921, the architects King & Campbell were said to have taken “slyly humorous delight in making [the Pomander Walk] houses miniature copies of much more pretentious town mansions.” The result, to use the exuberant adjectives from the Landmarks Preservation Commission report is a “magical atmosphere,” with a “unique sense of place secluded from the street,” “delightful” and “picturesque.”
One of the most interesting things about Pomander Walk is how it highlights how mass-produced housing can still be visually interesting, even if many of the details are non-functional and situated on a superficial layer. The Tudor details were imitation, using wood-wrapped steel on the facades, one of the many methods that allowed the original houses to cost only $2,950 (equivalent to $42,701 today). A New York Times article from April 24, 1921 states that the cost of Pomander Walk was “concededly low, although it is believed that a conservative saving will be effected by the construction of the entire group at the same time.”
On the tour, architect Daniel J. Allen walked us through Pomander Walk, pointing out how the original architects managed to differentiate each house through the use of simple tricks. For example, three different types of stucco were used to vary the facades, which in turn contrasted with the use of brick. The roof styles also varied from one house to another. Specific paint colors of green, blue and red were used, alternating between houses and the restoration remained as faithful as possible to the original. The flower boxes are original to the design and most of the doors are as from the original construction, with the exception of a few that had to be replaced. Two iron lampposts on the pedestrian street between the two rows of houses complete the English-town effect.
In all, there are 28 houses initially designed with two separate apartment units per house. The street was intended for a total of 56 inhabitants. In front of each house is a little garden, maintained by the residents themselves. The effect obtained, said an article in the magazine Architecture & Building in 1922, “is as though a portion of the olden times was transported to the heart of the modern world.” The backdrop of the high rise apartment buildings nearby only make this little narrow walk more unique in its setting.
Along 94th and 95th Street, the Tudoresque details continue. The entrance to Pomander Walk is through a rusticated stone and brick keystone archway. Hanging above is a a metal sign with the words Pomander Walk and a crowing rooster, the icon of the street. The two buildings around the arch, and the two at the end of West End Avenue are of stucco, brick and wood — all a bit different from one another but clearly part of the same architectural flourish.
Its residents have been as creatively minded as its founder, who also built a sunken garden restaurant and an indoor skating rink on this block. There was also once two movie theaters on the block – the Symphony became the venue Symphony Space. The WPA Guide to New York City in 1939 described Pomander Walk as “intended for and first occupied by theatrical people.” Indeed, the actors Rosalind Russell, Louis Wolheim, Herbert Stoddard, Madeline and Nancy Carroll and theater critic Ward Morehouse once lived there, along with ancient music historian Lotita Van Buren who gave “cottage concerts” in Pomander Walk in the 1930s.
Unlike quaint streets in other cities, like Rue Cremieux in Paris which have become overrun with selfie takers and had to limit visiting hours, Pomander Walk retains its exclusivity by not opening its gates. While its original residents may have been actors, actresses, and theater impressarios, its current residents fly under the radar. Pomander Walk’s location, mid-block, makes it unique even a hundred years after it was built. Unlike New York City’s mews which were built originally for horses and carriages, Pomander Walk was intended from the beginning as a residential development.
Pomander Walk was originally operated as an all-rental development and remained so until a conversion into co-ops took place in the early 1980s. Since then, several of the two-family units were transformed into single-family houses. Several properties go up for sale each year. This year, a 1 bedroom 1 bath apartment sold for $405,000 while a 3 bedroom 2.5 bath house sold for $1.8 million. There are currently no active sales or rentals in Pomander Walk but keep your eyes peeled for opportunities!
Pomanders nämndes först i litteraturen i mitten av 1300-talet. De användes i slutet av medeltiden genom 1600-talet. Även en version av pomander med apelsiner, kryddnejlika , oljor och ett gyllene band kan användas som en återhämtningscharm inom häxkonst.
Pomanders gjordes först för att bära som religiösa minnessaker.
Ett recept för att göra pomander ingick i John Partridge's The Treasury of Commodious Conceits, and Hidden Secrets (London, 1586):
Bensinharts , kalamit , labdanum och storax balsam maldes till ett pulver, löstes upp i rosenvatten och placerades i en kastrull över en eld för att laga mat. Den kokta blandningen avlägsnades sedan från elden, rullades i en äppleform och belades med en pulverformig blandning av kanel, söta slipmaskiner och kryddnejlika. Efter detta gjordes en sammansättning av tre korn vardera av ambergris , hjortmusk och civetmusk . Ambergris upplöstes först och rådjur och civetmusk blandades in senare. "Äpple" -kulan rullades genom myskkoncentrationen för att blanda i dessa ingredienser och knådades sedan för att kombinera och formas tillbaka i form av ett äpple.
Michel de Nostredame hade en liknande metod och formel med liknande ingredienser, men ett ganska annorlunda förfarande.
"Rosetabletter" tillverkades genom att blötlägga ett pund rosor utan blomhuvudena i hjortmuskvatten över natten. Vattnet pressades sedan ordentligt ut och rosorna maldes med sju uns bensin , en fjärdedel av bärnsten och en annan av civetmusk . Denna blandning gjordes till tabletter, som var och en klämdes in mellan rosenblad och torkades i ett svalt, mörkt område
För att bilda den sista pomandern, maldes två uns av det renaste labdanumet , ett uns vardera av Styrax- kalamiter och bensinharts, en halv uns av rostabletterna, en uns violett pulver och en halv dram varje ambergris och mysk maldes till ett pulver och knådades med rosenmuskvattnet från framställningen av rostabletterna. Detta producerade "en aromatisk boll av den högsta parfymen och den längsta varaktighet som kan göras var som helst i världen."
I slutet av 1500-talet uppträdde lådlådan som, samtidigt som den behöll de traditionella egenskaperna hos pomander, var utformad för att hålla flytande parfymer, blandade med pulver och absorberades på en svamp eller en bit bomull. Det gynnades av överklasserna som uppskattade de flytande parfymernas delikatess. Dess namn härstammar från det faktum att lådan "slogs" eller genomborrades för att släppa doften.
En modern pomanderstil är gjord genom att tappa en apelsin eller annan frukt med hela torkade kryddnejlikor och låta den bota , varefter den kan hålla i många, många år. Denna moderna pomander tjänar funktionerna som att parfymera och fräscha upp luften och även hålla lådor av kläder och sängkläder fräscha, behagligt doftande och malfria.
