    Mouchoir de Monsieur - "the gentelmen's handkerchief" interpreted and it is intended to give off comfort signals and it does.
    Habit Rouge Beau Cavalier - no rough edges here, very cozy.
    Musks Kublai Khan - warm and comfortable in drydown.
    Cadjemere - interpreted means "cashmere" and reminds me of cashmere.

    Any fragrance that has a bit of amber, vanilla, or warmth that doesn't become cloying in the drydown can be a perfect comfort scent.

    My top comfort scents:

    Prada Amber Pour Homme - so soft, yet warm. Yes, a cashmere sweater, or fine wool blanket.

    Amouage Opus III - again, soft and warm. Slightly powdery, yet dry and not too sweet. Perhaps my favorite "curl up and read scent."

    Let Me Play the Lion - a simple and yet deep incense and wood composition that is soft and has no sharp edges. A great autumn and winter comfort scent that evokes time spent beside a warm hearth.

    For me, the top is Un Bois Vanille. Warm, sweet and comforting.

    Some others I find comforting: 5 O'Clock au Gingembre, Idole, L'Instant pour Homme EDP

    Looks like I may be the singular exception who thinks patchouli is comforting. Bois 1920 Real Patchouly are Montale Patchouli Leaves are my favorite comfort scents. Honorable mentions to Voleur de Roses (comforting with a melancholy vibe), and all the fragrances that I purchased to commemorate some event (Sous le Vent, Knize Ten, Mitsouko). Not comforting per se, but my association of them to a happy moment in time is comforting.

    Dior Homme, Chergui, Tonka Impériale, Mitsouko

    Plus 3 scents that I have been wearing for 20 years: Antaeus, Equipage and Bel Ami. I guess that any scent that has been in a wardrobe for more than 10 years should qualify, even if doesn't include gourmand or soothing notes such as amber, vanilla or lavender.

    love this.. was just thinking of a thread like this.. luckily saw one

    comforts scents are 'seasonal' for me too, depends on the day and my mood.. though most often are either simple sweet scents or herbal/light incense scents.. and i notice that more often than not, i dont wear these much in the office and vice versa for office scents :P

    my favorites have been choices from (hmm.. many of them are technically female perfumes):
    hypnotic poison
    bvlgari black
    bois farine
    kyoto
    cipresso di toscana
    diptyque jardin clos (weird and irritating when i wear it out but as a room spray it smells quite nice for me)
    philosykos
    Opium EDP (when the weather is right)
    le baiser du dragon
    miel de bois
    and a few countless others

    p.s. sables and old spice mentioned by many sound really nice.. will check those out, thanks
    sables must still be available but is it officially discontinued? they dont carry it here (asia) in the annick goutal section.. or maybe the demand is just not that big here..

    p.p.s. dior homme and joop homme are two of my all time favorites but i've previously been wearing them quite a lot in the office so i dont think they'll will work easily as a comfort scent soon after that.. luckily, i've depleted my bottles and am giving my nose a rest from them first..

    Besides Sables, I also want to mention Fendi Theorema (the woman's version).

    (to cmk20: the availability of Sables does seem to be more limited, but Beauty Encounter has it at a good price)

    CREED's Royal Scottish Lavender is pretty cozy.

    Le Labo Rose 31 is too.

    I also find Etro's Ambra and Etro's Sandalo kind of cozy but in different ways. The Ambra is soft; the Sandalo is sexy.

    1. Dior: Homme (warm, harmless but beautiful)
    2. Caron: Pour un Homme (beautiful lavender but still warm and interesting)
    3. By Kilian: Back to Black (sometimes you need that smooth tobacco and vanilla to snuggle)

    Not weird at all; unless you read the ingredients of the vintage Opium label, spray on the coffee, and smell the good book.
