    Default Name your "comfort scent" & most "sexy scent" that you reach for the most*

    There is times that you just need that blanket around you, to make you feel comfortable & safe...

    Then there's the time you just want to exude all your sex appeal & turn heads & have people come up to you & say, mmmmm...you smell niiiiice... (especially the opposite sex)

    Which is your favorite comfort scent?
    Which is your favorite sexy scent?

    Hypnotic Poison is my favourite comfort scent. It's like comfort food!
    Sexy? Well...actually I'm not sure on this one. I think it'll end up being Musc Ravageur, once I can afford a bottle (I've already blown the perfume budget for this month!) though Ambre Sultan makes me feel very good indeed.

    This doesn't work for me quite like I thought it would. For regular stress I tend to go for powdery fragrances - Dune, Ombre Rose, Royal Bain de Caron and so on. When one of my friends died, I would have *assumed* that I would have used a lot of powdery perfumes because I was horribly stressed out, but I found that the most comforting and easy thing to wear was Jean Patou 1000, which I wore for a few weeks on the trot (something I never, ever do). I've not worn it since. I wonder why it fitted the bill?

    Sexy...Mitsouko seems to have the most appeal for other people, but I also like Diorling (and my husband loves it).

    For me, my "comfort scent & most "sexy scent" is the same one; Fracas!
    I feel "at home" in Fracas, it gives me a feeling of safety and consolation when I wear it all for myself. I also do feel sexy in it, if worn to a dinner party or some other social event. Funny thing is, though, that when I wear it (always sparingly in public!), women tend to comment on how good I smell, and ask what I´m wearing, while men aren´t equally positive about it (- and I´ve asked quite a few on their honest opinion!). My impression is that Fracas is more appealing to women...

    That's funny you say that, because I was always miss sexpot, most of my life, but in the past 7 years or so, don't feel sexy at all, but I'm just giving an example of what most people may feel like.
    Even though I don't quite feel "sexy" anymore, sometimes when I'm having better days, I feel kind of like I used to, I want to feel more noticeable.

    I never personally smelled Fracras, but from what I heard about it, it is flowery, & very feminine, and sometimes men don't respond to that typical female kind of scent, as much as women do. I wear the opposite kinds of scents, (more spicy & exotic) and get alot of feedback, more from men, some women like it too, but not as much as men do.

    I've said this before, and I'll say it again, I don't think that men like the same scents on women, as women like on themselves, of course there are always exceptions, but for the most part they don't.

    musse, I am with you on Fracas. I feel great and super sexy when I wear it. It is just unfortunate that many of my friends / family don't appreciate this scent. I have a few comforting scents in mind which I would reach for: Datura Noir, Rahat Loukhoum by SL OR Hypnotic Poison.

    But right now, I am going thru the dark ages. I fell in love with Black Aoud and L'heure Bleue where they smell very gothic and sad to me.
    Currently wearing: Honour Woman by Amouage

    Default Re: Name your "comfort scent" & most "sexy scent" that you reach for the most*

    Comfort:
    Mitsouko parfum, Jicky EdT, AA Lavande Velours, Angelique Encens, Ambre Sultan, Shalimar parfum. I know, not one, but I reach for all of these fairly often, and find them comforting depending on what I need. For historical reasons, sometimes Stila Creme Bouquet.

    Sexy:
    Even more than comfort scents, this varies for me. Do I want to be irresistable to my partner, am I wearing it just for me, am I lecturing that day (and if so, am I wearing tall leather boots, red lipstick, comfortable jeans)? I can feel very alluring in Mitsouko; the S.O. has a thing for vanilla/ almonds/ cherry so Farnesiana or PotL Luctor et Emergo; Jicky in parfum; I often go with a variant on the sexy librarian but there are so many. I love woods and incense and tend to feel sexy in them, so Angelique Encens, Black Cashmere, SL Chene, SL Santal Blanc are sexy for me. NR For Her EdT can be very sexy. And sometimes a dab of Guerlain L'Instant l'Homme since I can't get him to wear it for me =)

    I guess I'm all about sexy when it comes to my fragrance, it just depends what part of sexy I want to play up that day.

    Default Re: Name your "comfort scent" & most "sexy scent" that you reach for the most*

    Sorry, I can't choose just one for each

    My comfort scents would be: L by Lolita Lempicka, Feminite du Bois, Ange or Demon, or L'Heure Bleue. There's something to be said about vanilla, spices and orientals.

    My sexy evening scents would be: Allure Sensuelle, Narciso Rodrigues EDP, or Euphoria

    Default Re: Name your "comfort scent" & most "sexy scent" that you reach for the most*

    For comfort, I love wood like Samsara, Prada, Euphoria etc. I have found just for me that men seem to like the lighter girlier stuff like Miami Glow, Hypnotic Poison (lightly). Now what really doesn't make any sense is that I reach for Narciso Rodriques when I want to really smell sexy, but then why would a man want to smell a male deer?

    That last bit made me grin.

    I remember someone saying "The secret to looking sexy is looking like you've just had sex." Maybe this is the olfactory equivalent?

    Angel was my sig scent when me & the Mr. first started dating so it will ALWAYS be my sexy scent...you know, before the little one came along & took all things sexy away from us

    Comfy would be Nuits de Scherrer, Habanita, Allure & Cinema.

    LOL LOL TD, good point. I guess that's why the NR makes me "feel" sexy,... it's because it smells like a male deer.

    cheers!

    Default Re: Name your "comfort scent" & most "sexy scent" that you reach for the most*

    When I need emotional comfort, Apres l'Ondee, Farnesiana, L'Heure Bleue, N'Aimez Que Moi and Mitsouko.
    For more just feeling comfortable and cozy, L'Eau d'Hiver, Bois Farine and Ambre Narguile (hey, must be a Jean-Claude Ellena thing!)

    For sexy...eh...harder. Tabac Blonde, which I wear for a lot of reasons, Songes (which is also very comforting).

    sexy: Maitresse, L'Instant EdP, Opium Fleur Impériale, No.5 Sensual Elixir

    For me, too the lines of comforting and sexy are somewhat blurred as one can oft beget the other.

    My comfort scent , oddly enough, is Omnia...it has a literally somniferous effect on me, whenever I wear it I find myself softly nodding off...anyone else experienced this?!

    For sexiness...I wear Comme des Garcons Parfum with Comptoir Sud Pacifique Vanille Canelle...the CSP stops the CdG from being too sharp at the opening and then everything dries down to a spicy warm glow

    Default Re: Name your "comfort scent" & most "sexy scent" that you reach for the most*

    Right now...

    Comfort: Mitsouko.

    Sexy: No. 5 or Songes.

    If you ask me this question next year I think the answers might change.

    I find Chanel No. 22 to be a very comforting, calming, mellow scent. I just recently discovered it but have never had a fragrance make me feel the way Chanel 22 does. It is just perfect, I also feel very feminine and sexy wearing it, a different kind of sexy though than my "sexy" scent Coco! Does that make sense!
