    Hey, sophi! That's a lovely guess. But this picture was taken in warmer climes.
    One of those words is correct though. And I guess I should have mentioned it's a two-word fragrance.

    A lonely puzzle on Christmas?

    How about Nautica Blue by Nautica?

    Merry Christmas Aiona!

    Merry merry Christmas, Riannon! It's been so long since I played this game, I didn't know if anyone did anymore!

    Nautica Blue could very well be an answer. But it wasn't the two word fragrance I had in mind. if it helps at all, the picture was taken on the beach at Prachup Khiri Khan, Thailand.

    How nice!!! Merry Christmas/Holidays to all{ Riannon, Aiona--and musse who snuck in while I was editing!, Sophi. Good to see this Thread getting some ink and some familiar names of crafty players once again in action.

    Yaughtman Blue?

    Boats = yacht(s) {archaic: yaught(s)}, Rock formation looks like a man on his back in the water, blue everywhere.

    Hi, musse! hednic! KBE!

    Gosh, those are all good answers. But still not quite what I had in mind. Y'all got the color I was thinking of though.

    Fragrance name.
    Two words.
    One word is obviously "blue."

    I trust we all had a wonderful Christmas!

    Just firing off some guesses here. Aquamarine Blue or Blue Riviera?

    But perhaps Aiona is toying with us and although 'blue' is correct it is correct in another language. So..
    Bleu Pacifique or L'Heure Bleue?

    We had a weird one. First it snowed, which meant I had to cancel my brunch party. Then husband threw up. So I was glad we canceled the party. Then I spent the rest of the day chilling with the wee ones. Twas good.

    Y'all are gonna kill me. I did a search in the fragrance directory (which I should have done *before* I posted the puzzle) and in Basenotes it's listed as a three word fragrance.... :S

    The first word is the house name. I didn't realize Basenotes lists it as part of the fragrance name.

    Still can't find something that directly matches blue/boats/water except that Nautica frag (Nautica Bermuda Blue) But you say the photo is taken in Thailand. Which is a paradise, in my opinion. So, let's try MCM Blue Paradise

    Oh, golly, Riannon. You've got two of the words in your comment alone!
    Just the house is missing....

    I mostly mentioned the locale to let Sophi know that it wasn't the Himalayas.

    It's a male fragrance, by the way.
    Three words.
    First word is the house.
    Pretty much established that one word is "blue." (No, I'm not doing the lingua franca on you, kbe.)

    Does that mean it is Gammon Blue Water? The one I dismissed because 'Gammon' made me think of gammon steak?

    OK I think I might be on to something, at least I hope so because nothing else I try seems to make sense. I somehow remember reading Thailand beat China in an Adidas Challenge. Weak attempt at best but.....

    Adidas Blue Challenge? (The Chinese team was wearing blue uniforms ya know..)

    I found something about that:

    kbe, that there demostrates why your puzzles are so devious, because you think deviously! I am not capable of that level of devious. My puzzle was tricky only because of my carelessness!

    Yes! Blue Water was it. Gammon Blue Water, as listed in the directory. I had to look up what a gammon steak was, after that, and I could have posted a picture of that too, as we had a ham for Christmas!

    Your turn, if you wish, Riannon!

    Good morning! Mousie dearest, what were you doing in the wee hours of the morning? Way past your bedtime

    You are all going into the right direction but kbe comes closest to what I want to hear.
    Hints: go back to the roots of perfume and don't think in the English language.

    Good afternoon, Riannon!

    The insomniac musse gives it another try with Angelique Encens.
    The smoke somehow makes me think of an angel s wings.

    Eva, try that hot chocolate/Cointreau/cream recipe. Sooo good for insomniacs.

    Hmm, one of my favourite frags, that Angelique Encens but it is not the right answer. You got the language right though: the name is in French.

    Next hint: two words (and I checked the Directory)

    Don't forget: very liberal dose of Cointreau. You will sleep like a baby (or be drunk as a skunk)

    Parfum d'Or would indeed be three words, sorry.

    Take a good look at that picture: what do you see, where could this be.
    The perfume house is very well known, one of the most distinguished although they reformulated a bit too much to my taste.

    kbe's answer being Holy Smoke, I thought it did look like the little ball the priest swings around in Midnight Mass. So I'd guess Messe de Minuit, but prepositions are words too, right?

    Yes Aiona, it is a thurible, used for burning incense during church ceremonies. Not only during the Midnight Mass.
    Prepositions are most certainly words as well

    Keep kbe's answer in mind.
