    Morning all!

    Sea Roses, you're right, Dima was robbed, but l must admit, Lordi were great fun! l remember well Dima's appearance with Plushenko, & l was just so impressed with Dima's ability as a performer, although l haven't seen him live. And count me in as another fan of Michalis, l have a couple of his albums from a few years back, but haven't heard any of his recent stuff.

    l'm only just up, so not scented yet, but we're thinking about going to see The Last Jedi later, so l'll try to keep it subtle today.

    Good morning! Repeating No.5 parfum from yesterday; this time 70s vintage. Have been wearing No.5 parfums this week for both Chanuary and the Quest thread, which makes me feel especially productive. Yes, I've convinced myself that perfume wearing is "productive".

    tds, yes! I have tried some Divine. I'll have to go back and see which ones. I know there were some that I thought were just incredible and all of them were exceptionally composed and made. And yet, I didn't find one that charmed my wallet open. I really don't know why. I need to try more of them; this much is certain.

    I wish you all a lovely weekend!

    Good morning, everyone!

    Hugs to our sickies! (I think I'm on the way to joining y'all; my throat is scratching and scraping and my voice is starting to sound like Deborah Winger/Kathleen Turner/Lauren Bacall). Everyone is under strict orders to drink fluids, take vitamins and rest. And take your medicine--hot toddies seem like they could be in order. I only have Jameson's around the house right now, but it's versatile enough to take some lemon and clove or two and a cinnamon stick.

    Dinner last night was fabulous. However, the bottle of wine I scoped out on the list was unavailable, and there were almost tears. I REALLY wanted a bottle of 08 Le Cigare Volant: it's a domestic wine, but it's made like a Chateauneuf-du-Pape, using the same grapes albeit grown on American soil. It's an interesting idea that not everyone is capable of pulling off; however, Bonny Doon has been making this stuff for years, and it's worth seeking out if you can find it. It doesn't have quite the same earthy, gamey quality as a true old world wine would, but steakhouse fare is also more smoky and in-your-face than what one finds in France. So even though my palate faces firmly toward Europe, this seemed like the right balance. And BD is one of the few California wineries that gets my full respect; Randall Graham is a genius and a madman, and he's a personal hero of mine--and a lovely man as well. Plus 10 years on that bottle would have had it drinking really well. Alas, I had forgotten that this time of year is very slow in the wine industry, that everyone's stock is low, and that the likelihood of something this good being on hand would have been slight. I'm still feeling a little unfulfilled

    We had to settle for this:

    which was a winery that we briefly handled while I was in the wholesale business. This ^^^ is one of the proprietary red blends that can both make and break California wines for people who aren't familiar with the way things are done in the new world. It's syrah-based, so it drinks a little like the Cigare Volant would have, especially since it has a little viognier in it like the old-school Chateauneufs use--but then (this being California) it also contains some Bordeaux grapes--cabernet, cab franc (my favorite!), and merlot--and a *smidge* of Sangiovese (another favorite--it's such an expressive grape), for some reason. It could have been a Frankenstein monster, but it was actually enjoyable and, despite its youth, friendly and excellent company throughout the evening.

    And my tolerance has gone south. I drank 1 flute of Champagne and 2 glasses of Todos, and I was toast when we got home, and I have a hangover lurking around the edges. I need to finish my oatmeal and go back to sleep for a while . . . .

    I'm sure there is more to say but my brain is trying to shut down. So--perfume. It's still below freezing outside, so if this isn't a day for Ambra Nera, then I can't imagine what could be.

    Wore Byredo Seven Veils to bed last night and can still smell it this morning, so I’m wearing it again (a few more spritzes) as my SOTD.

    Not only are you a dedicated Basenoter, you’re an efficient one at that. VERY productive!

    I’m continuing on with Chanuary in Gabrielle, my first repeat. I’ve been looking forward to wearing it a second time. It’s lovely, and sometimes lovely is exactly what’s needed.

    Have a good day.

    Oh, no! More flu! Poor Hazel I'm glad you're on the mend, though.

    TDS, we'll be on the lookout for both of those wines. The list of grapes you ran through checked all of our favorites! Sorry about the hangover -- but I'm so glad you had a nice time!

    The honeyed remains of Grand Soir are lingering on the back of my neck and on my hair, despite applying it once, more than 24 hours ago. Nuclear strength, that one. I'm going to be sampling some of the Sammarco fragrances this morning. We'll see if anything makes an impression.

    David fell in love with his 2nd Serge last night -- Santal de Mysore, which we sniffed after reading Claire V's review of Under My Skin. Given that he loves Arabie, I'm not surprised he's drawn to SdM. It smelled better last night than what I had remembered, and the cumin seemed more human than foody, although that could have been due to suggestion from Under My Skin.

    Fascinating conversations our fragrances often have.

    Thank you everyone for your get-well wishes. I had gotten the shingles vaccine when I turned 60 but my doctor said it is not 100% effective in preventing the disease. So I am taking an antiviral, some pain meds, and using cold compresses when I'm just sitting, plus some Vitamin C and zinc that Sea Roses recommended. Today's scent is Absolue pour le Soir, because I find it very comforting. I'm sure I'll be feeling better soon.

    I’m wearing SL A la Nuit from my brand new bottle today. I’m so happy I can spritz as lavishly as I want, this is the way it was designed to be worn.

    It’s a lazy day around the bleu homestead ... I’m watching basketball now and will watch football later and getting in lots of puppy snuggles. Life is good.

    Foxbins, hope the medicine works quickly and you feel better soon! Sending get well wishes to everyone ... it’s been a rough cold and flu season so far.

    hugs to all ...
