    Soothing Scents for when you are ill?

    I've been fighting a stomach infection for over ten days now and find that most of gourmands and orientals contribute to my nausea, rather than help soothe it.

    I purchased Coromandel at the Chanel Boutique in the Palazo, Las Vegas. They had the full line up at the time (September) but I don't know if they always have it. Not much help for NYC, I'm afraid.
