Do you have a comfort scent that others might be surprised by?
Is there a perfume that makes you feel cosseted but isn’t the usual fluffy gourmand or oriental cashmere wrap?
Why is that particular perfume comforting to you?
Does your crazy comfort scent have a special association for you that makes it reassuring?
I was surprised recently when someone at Perfume Lovers London said their comfort scent was Chanel No.19. Although a great perfume, I find it the opposite of comforting! However, it works for her and that’s all that matters. Any perfume can be a comfort scent if it’s comforting to you. That’s the great thing about fragrance; it’s so individual it doesn’t have to conform to any rules.
My unexpected comfort scents are Ormonde Woman and Guerlain’s Vol de Nuit edt. I find something very calming about the deep dappled forest of Ormonde Woman, maybe because I have fond memories of childhood woodland walks. For some unknown reason, Vol de Nuit makes me feel centred and therefore comforted.
