    Default What is your "hug me" scent?

    There are certain scents that just make a person more huggable.
    My Scottish Grandmother wore a perfume that I can still remember
    (she died when she was 92) but never knew the name of. She was a
    soft, rounded woman with a heart of gold and I could have hugged her for ever!
    My "hug me " scent is probably Heliotrope Blanc or maybe LouLou.

    Which of your scents do your family and friendslove to linger over when you are
    wearing them? I'm not talking "sensual" here, just huggable.

    Mmm... Lea, Bois Farine, Kenzo Amour or maybe L'Eau d'Hiver...or something very, very vanilla (The Exact Friction of Stars is a huge hit with my four-year-old: "yummy cupcakes!!! can I have some???")

    My dear Kewart,
    My "hug" me is LouLou

    My daughter seems to hug me more when I'm wearing Kelly Caleche - and she always says "Mmmm... Mom you smell so good"!

    My daughter likes Jour de Fête (the heliotrope note, I suppose.) But actually, she is huggy anyway and likes most of my perfumes-- lucky me, all those hugs!

    A good question, as I certainly consider this. The stuff my son loves when he cuddles up to me. The, "Mommy you smell good" ones...

    Fancy Sophie and I both finding Lou Lou huggable!
    I agree with Hypnotic Poison and Jour de Fete.
    I am now tempted to try some Shaal Nur - who makes it?

    Thumbs up Re: What is your "hug me" scent?

    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

    Kewart, Shaal Nur really is special. In a quiet, huggable way. :-)

    Roberto, I forgot about Blue Amber. I think it's very comforting and huggable.

    My perpetually huggable grandmother wore Lily of the Valley as her signature scent, I don't know the name, or the house, wherever she was in the world, an old friend would send it to her from France, and she would put it into an ancient cut crystal atomizer thing with the squeeze bulb and fat, tangled silk tassel.

    Sadly, Lily of the Valley totally stinks on me, so when I am going to be in a situation where I know I will be hugged by a large contingent of family members, I tend to go light, classic, and unobtrusive - either Silver Mountain Water or a dab or two of attar of roses, since sandalwood has become santalum unobtanium, I'm not about to let my remaining little bit of that get hugged off me!

    I would find a person wearing L'Eau Serge Lutens incredibly hugable!

    The only smell from my childhood which is comforting to me would be my dads Golden Virginia tobacco... not a particularly pleasant smell but very very comforting!
