    It depends largely on personal preference. About two years ago, I would have named some gourmand frags. Now, I'd say leathers like Cuir de Lancome, but that's because I find myself enjoying leather frags more than any other kind.

    Blimey, there are some surprising suggestions in this thread!

    Open fires, cashmere sweaters, mugs of cocoa. Surely this is conjuring images of snowy winter scenes?

    This makes me think of Burberry London. Although Pi and Eau des Baux are good calls.

    Barbershop style fragrances are among my comfort scents: Old Spice and Pinaud Clubman, for example.

    I was just thinking today what a comforting scent Tobacco Vanille is. If you are looking for a "cold winter night next to the fireplace" smell, Ikon by Zirh always conjures those images for me. The best part about Ikon is that you can buy a 100,000,000,000 ml bottle for around $10. LOL

    I love threads like this, since fragrances that evoke 'comfort' are some of the ones I reach for the most. Of course, I think that it goes without saying that most of these scents contain lavender or vanilla or they smell sort of 'powdery'. That is not to say that all lavender/vanilla/powdery scents smell comforting - because there are many examples where this is untrue. Nonetheless, these accords seem to easily 'relax' me and in turn the more that I wear them when I am relaxed the more they 'relax' me.

    Mine are:

    Shalimar (Eau de Cologne) by Guerlain [note: Shalimar parfum is NOT a comfort scent, it's too resinous/animalic/smoky]
    Flower by Kenzo
    Caron Pour Homme by Caron
    Apres l'Ondee by Guerlain
    Spiriteuse Double Vanille by Guerlain
    Tobacco Vanille by Tom Ford
    Madeline by Ava Luxe [this stuff smells like eggnog, how can you wear it & not feel comforted!?]

    L'instant de Guerlain Pour Homme eau Extreme! Soft, slightly sweet, slightly spicy. Nice and warm as well and it features a beautifully comforting cocoa note.

    Old Spice EdC selling for $7.99, Reflection Man for $260, and Bois du Portugal for somewhere in between.

    As I get to dress down in sweats, sit in front of Mrs. J.'s Lazy Boy on the floor and quietly finish the evening reading together, I find myself turning principally to these 3 scents and I rank them equals in terms of ''warm, fuzzy, and happy.'' That being said, Cologne pour le Soir is very good for the evening.

    At a certain point in my fragrance journey I found Jaipur Homme very comforting, I think I need to revisit it soon.
