    Default What is your comfort scent?

    One of the reasons I like perfumes so much is that they can have quite a significant effect on how you feel. Perhaps there are two broad categories here. First, some perfumes just fit how you already feel--they complement your mood. But, second, other perfumes can lift you out of a mood you are in to put you in another mood. They can energize you or comfort you. Perhaps in this respect, perfumes are very much like music. Some music complements how you feel--other music has the power to put you in another state of mind.

    Comfort scents seem to fall in the second category, I'd think. They are there for you when you are depressed, cold, lonely, confused.

    What are your comfort scents?

    Just to start the discussion, mine are:
    Chene--Serge Lutens
    Avignon--Comme des Garcons
    Incense Rose--Andy Tauer
    Piper Negrum--Villoresi

    d'Orsay Arome 3
    Cacharel ph
    Tremlett Black Tie
    Creed Baie de Genievre
    Acqua di Parma Colonia
    Villoresi Incensi
    Penhaligon's Castile
    Bois 1920 Sandalo e Thé
    L'Occitane Vetyver
    Dominguez Vetiver hombre

    All of these, regardless how different in style they are, just feel (not smell !) like a cumfy pair of old (very fine handmade Cordovan ) shoes on me. I feel utterly at one with them and with myself wearing them, as far as the world around me will permit.

    My ultimate comfort scent is Spirituese Double Vanille. If I know I'm going to have a bad day, I love to envelope myself in that gorgeous vanilla aroma.

    Relaxing/Comforting: Jour de Fête
    Invigorating: Moroccan Mint Tea
    Emboldening: L'Air du Désert

    Perhaps only the first would qualify as a comfort scent, but sometimes I can't afford to indulge in being in an off mood. So depending on my tasks for the day, any of those may be very fit for those melancholy moods.
    It is known that there are an infinite number of worlds, simply because there is an infinite amount of space for them to be in. However, not every one of them is inhabited. Any finite number divided by infinity is as near nothing as makes no odds, so the average population of all the planets in the Universe can be said to be zero. From this it follows that the population of the whole Universe is also zero, and that any people you may meet from time to time are merely products of a deranged imagination.

    I'll second Flying Lotus - I find CDG2 very familiar and comforting. It's odd because I just started using it a few months ago.

    Rive Gauche has a similar effect on me - in a different way, of course.

    Any high quality niche oriental is comforting to me. L'air du Desert Marocain and Musc Ravageur are comforting. Also, Tam Dao is very comforting to me with its simple wood note.

    Ormonde Man currently tops my list as the ultimate comfort scent.

    I also noticed that many vetiver-based fragrances give me a sense of well-being. I am particularly fond of Vettiveru from CdG, which I find to be very uplifting.

    Oh wow - forgot about that one. What a wonderful fragrance, I have a metal mini in my bathroom cabinet and I forget about it.

    I remember the first time I did a 'little white pill on the dance floor' (wink, wink) many years ago - I was wearing Om. Talk about olfactory associations!
