Gucci Pour Homme 2
Thread: Your comfort scent

+1 for Gucci Pour Homme II. It's a marvelously versatile scent that's great for a date, but it's also my lazy Sunday staying at home choice.

Silver Mountain Water
and strangely enough Jicky EDT
+1 on Tea for Two
Ambre 114 is just so comforting to me.
I have a few go-to comfort scents
L'Artisan's Bois Farine
Fille en Aiguilles and Tea for Two.
Wild at Heart and Weird on Top
Atelier Cologne Orange Sanguine.
The first thing I thought of was Piper Nigrum, but lately I've found Memoirs of a Trespasser very comforting. Ambre Precieux is another one that falls into that category for me.
Here are a few:
Ambre Sultan (ambers in general really)
Iris Ganache (I think most of the L'Art et la Matiere line would work)
Dior Homme Intense

“When you step back from stressing the parts,
when the mind becomes still, the rose comes to you,
unfolds in you in all her glory.
The perfume invades you completely.
The rose is you. You are one.”
Vetivers in general. Miller Harris in particular. Oud oils can be very comforting
Nice. Some very good and surprising responses. Gucci Pour Homme II was a surprising one but, when I thought about it, I could see that. Mugler Cologne or Banana Republic Classic is another one for me. I also love Sandlewood/cedar mixes.
Caron Pour Un Homme - with a splash or two of Puig's Agua Lavanda...pure aromatherapy!
“Some perfumes are as fragrant as an infant’s flesh, sweet as an oboe’s cry, and greener than the spring; While others are triumphant, decadent or rich; Having the expansion of infinite things, like ambergris and musk, benzoin and frankincense, which sing the transports of the mind and every sense.”
― Charles Baudelaire, The Flowers of Evil & Paris Spleen
here are a few that work for me...

I like to apply fragrance just before bed. Usually something that i'll still be able to detect the following morning. Recently it's been 4 sprays of one of the following.
Hermes Bel Ami
Cartier de Santos Concentree
Antonio Puig Quorum
Le Labo Rose 31
Hard work never killed anyone, but why risk it?
While most would not categorize Giorgio for Men (vintage) as a "comfort scent," I use it for mine as I am so used to it after wearing it regularly for a quarter century that it evokes feelings of comfort.
