UGH....

Hello everyone... Even though I don't have a fever, I've caught a nasty cold with stuffy nose and achy body. Yay, the first cold of the year :/ All I've wanted to do since Monday night is lie in bed, so there'll be no post today. If I am able to smell again by Friday, expect a review of FM's Dans Tes Bras, and if the nose still refuses to work I'll be here anyway with a Fragrance Bouquet Loves... feature.


PS: I hate airplane recycled air.
Did you know 1 in 5 people comes out of the airplane sick?
Did you know airplane air used to be cleaner when smoking was allowed on planes due to the fact that they had to bring in clean air all the time instead of recycling it over and over again?
Yeah, I'm pissed...
/end rant...

Colds are just so annoying! The sniffling/sneezing/coughing will stop soon though, I recommend staying in bed with a pot of tea with honey and you will soon be fit as a fiddle again!

Airplane air is just the first annoyance, the second one is crying babies imho!

When your nose is back, I would love to read you on greek scents! If not greek production, at least what scent goes along with Greece? Get well soon! aliki

Ack, feel better. There is definately some nasty stuff going around. I admit I am kind've shocked I have not been sick yet; I work with the public, it is practically recycled air.

Happy new year and feel better soon! Catching something in the beginning of the year is rather a pain.

Dear Divina!
Many, many sympathies - just getting over my virus, and I wouldn't wish it upon anyone else. Stay warm and indulge yourself and get well very soon!
(P.S. I know what you mean about air travel. How DOES my BH put up with it, and why is he never ill??)
Hugs xxx

I hear ya -- I've been down for almost two weeks and am now on antibiotics. I can't work up enthusiasm for anything, even perfume, hence no new posts.

My doctor told me that they used to clean the air filters on planes when smoking was allowed, but now they never do. So these illnesses spread during the holiday season when everybody is traveling by air.

Fee better soon!

Divina, I am so sorry to learn you are down with a cold. Blech, blah, and bummer.

Wishing you all the comforts that aid in a speedy recovery.

Hiii Z ^_^! I hardly ever drink tea, but this week has definitely been hot soup week!

Divina said...

Aliki with the beautiful name, lovely to have you here on Fragrance Bouquet :) Thank you for the request, I'll definitely get to work on that :) For now, you can check an already posted article on L'Eau Trois, a scent that was made with Greece in mind and reminds me SO much of Greece its uncanny!

Ah, maybe your immune system is strong precicely for that reason :) Like doctors, they hardly ever get sick! Wishing you always good health dear Jen, may you always feel great!

Divina said...

Thank you for the wishes, Helg. Indeed it is. Happy New Year to you too.

Divina said...

Linda, LOL! I was writing this with such self-absorbtion that I forgot your DH does this for a living! No, an even better question is, how does he deal with the ear pain? Or am I the only one who experiences excruciating pain when landing? The bf says he can.... close his nose..and blow his ears.. o_O ... :O What?? but I can't do that stuff!!

Divina said...

Oh no! Antibiotics, I hate them. I hope you feel better real REAL soon! Hugs from one sicky to the other.

Divina said...

ScentScelf thank you! I am still feeling tired and drained, but I am getting better.

Divina said...

Daily dear beauty! Thank you :)
