    Default (Dis)comfort scents?

    We all have our comfort scents - the ones we go to for centering or grounding or just because they make us feel good. But, what are the scents that you LIKE because they make you uncomfortable? For example, Czech & Speake no. 88 pulls me in with a sense of dread. Some of Lutens' scents make me uncomfortable with their exoticism; e.g., MKK with its intense dirtiness.

    Which ones do you like because they make you uncomfortable?

    Ungaro II upsets my equilibium but in sort of a good way.

    Kenzo PH gets me edgy and alert.
    Currently wearing: Eau de Campagne by Sisley

    Ungaro III. It makes me imagine I am young and venturing into a dark and mysterious forest.
    Slipping past a Do Not Enter sign I run barefoot down a damp dirt path. As a light rain begins
    to fall I quicken my pace, trampling wild flowers under my feet ...

    Jicky, absolutely. It sometimes makes me very nervous, but there is something which makes me coming back to it. Perhaps it`s that classy feeling I get out of it.

    I fell really dirty when I wear Kouros.

    When I wear Tabac Blond extrait, I fell like I just did something illegal.

    Bandit, no doubt about it! After the rose and carnation, it's this "man-or-a-mouse" determination to persevere over it's rubbery-leathery masochism. Haven't had a full wearing yet, always turning tail, running like a man sprayed by a skunk and desperately trying to wash it off. And yet I still spray it on me time and time again!

    Close your eyes, so you can see what you're smelling.
