    Default creamy sophisticated scent for home use

    Looking for a creamy sophisticated scent for home use. For example CoStume National 21. It shouldn't be overbearing, it should be relaxing.

    What do you mean by home use? Are you talking about something to spray on yourself as you sit at home, or something to use as a room spray?

    Also, what's the deal with Costume National lol?

    Maybe a bit out of the box, but you might want to sample Jay Z Gold. To me it smells like a creamy, slightly blueberry YSL L'Homme. It's a scent that I would only wear/spray around the house, personally.

    I would characterize Costume National 21 as spicy as well. Perhaps you can tell us what you like about that scent?

    I don't like masculine scents or really feminine ones, because the smell bothers me later on but 21 is just the right level, creamy and sophisticated.

    Egoiste dries down to a creamy scent IMO. You seem to be going off of what other people say rather than what it smells like to you. Setting yourself up for disaster there. I would recommend to sample the fragrances recommended to you and see how they work out on your skin.

    Perhaps also Endymion by Penhaligons, Armani Attitude Extreme and DHI, three of the most chocolate-creamy fragrances I personally know and would definitely recommend, may be worth considering.

    DecantShop is a good go-to source for these kinds of fairly-common frags.

    My favorite home fragrance are Tyler. Very luxurious smells at a reasonable price. They even have a candle that smells exactly like GIT. However, My fav is High Maintenance. I've got the Melts, the sachets, and room spray.

    D&G The One, Lanvin Avant Garde and YSL La Nuit are three of my soft, easy going, sitting at home in the evening in a hoodie and sweat pants type fragrances.

    My local Sephora has samples for YSL L'Homme and Egoiste. I thought Sephora is French company so they may have branches in UK. I recommend anything with Vanilla, like Diptyque Eau Duelle.
