    Default What are the top COMFORT scents?

    Looking for a great snuggly comfort scent, NOT sensual, like Musc Ravageur, something that reminds you of an open fire, cashmere sweaters, cocoa and slippers!

    I made a thread like this not too long ago. Most of the replies were niches I couldn't afford

    You might wanna look it up under my threads

    The lavender in Caron's Pour Un Homme makes this a comfort scent. It's very affordable with some discounters, under $50.00 USD.

    Besides almost anything in my wardrobe taking up this role subjectively and sentimentally, I do get a tremendous amount of comforting fragrance notes from almost anything smelling "Old School", in an antiquated way without being dated, something reminding of vintage artwork, historical buildings, rare books etc. like Penhaligons Blenheim Bouquet, Creed REL and BDP, Esencia Loewe, GFT Spanish Leather

    Blenheim Bouquet- slipper and even cashmere sweaters mood, without much of the open fire or cocoa
    Creed REL and BDP- lush spices with more pronounced comforting, rather than sensual touch
    GFT Spanish Leather- a scholarly atmosphere of erudite reading in an oddly familiar and comforting setting, e.g. precious books bound in leather and gold leaf, casually resting of a leather sofa or in an antique, richly decorated woody shelf
    Esencia Loewe- a dark powerhouse frag, very little cocoas and slippers mood, yet reminding of something more warm, casual and comforting than an alpha-male powerhouse, here, the cashmere sweater and open fire suggestions are very strong, with a hint of dark and powdery- yet not sweet, morbid or sensual- male florals

    This may sound wierd, but I love curling up with a mug of coffee, a good book, and vintage Opium.

    New Haarlem by Bond no.9 is very comforting to me. So is Opium PH.

    Les Nereides lmperial Opoponax, Tom Ford Amber Absolute or Profumum Ambra Aurea. All of these suggest such comforting surroundings for me, & all are definitely unisex.

    For me, it really depends on what time of year it is. In the summer heat I get my comfort from the smell of neroli, verbena and bitter herbs, I went through an entire bottle of Tom Ford's Neroli Portofino this past July and August and half a bottle of Eau de Guerlain.
    During the autumn transitional months: warm days, cool nights - I really get a lot of comfort from the smell of roses, the last flowers of the year. Rose Barbare was perfect for me this past September and I continue to enjoy it into October.
    In the cooler months nothing makes me happier than the smell of amber and vanilla, I'll be thrilled to start wearing my Ambre 114 and Havana Vanille again.
    Spring makes me want to smell orange blossoms, jasmine and ylang ylang - the comfort of things coming back to life.

    I second (or third) Royal English Leather but I can't agree on Bois du Portugal. That one is more like a night out with the boys, Rat Pack-sytle, or doing Mafia business. Oh well, I guess I got a little bit too hung up on the Creed propaganda... but even without that BdP is not really a layed back comfort scent.

    Narciso Rodriguez for Him Musc Oil - time and time again I just dab a little on my wrist before I crawl into bed to smell it as I fall asleep.

    The EDT & EDP too, but mustly the Musc Oil because it wears so close to the skin

    Mine would have to do with vanillas. I'd say Un Bois Vanille, Spiritueuse Double Vanille and Vanille Aoud. Some animalic ones also do it for me, like L'Ombre Fauve.

    Definitely vanillas/gourmands....Musc Ravageur, Tobacco Vanille, Eau de Baux.

    I have also found Acqua di Gio to be comforting in the clean sense.

    I am not a snuggly kind of guy, but I find Gucci PH 2 and Bulgari PH Soir to have a calming effect on me. Does that count?

    CSP's Vanille-Abricot or Danna Karan's Cashmere Mist are where I'd start. A lot depends on the taste of whom you intend to snuggle. Some people find gourmands, esp. vanilla, inviting while others prefer a clean-as-a-whistle vibe, for which any cologne-style frag would do.
