    Default Your comfort scent

    Do you where a scent for relaxation? One that just makes you feel comfortable? I have one scent that I wear at home when I just want to relax. For me, its Lalique Equus. I love the strong cedar note.

    Sweet Gourmands make me feel relaxed or even fruit based scents.

    Some examples:
    Givenchy Play Intense
    Pure Malt/ Pure Havane
    DHI


    Avoid pepper notes for relaxation.

    Nothing like 1 comfort scent as I like all that I own. B4 bed, I use 2 sprays or dabs of 2 different perfumes, one on each arm, and that to me is the most comforting, if a girl is not already in my arms

    +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.

    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.

    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.”

    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
    CDG Avignon

    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.
