Yesterday on PST I wrote about the cold weather we’ve been having and how in a way it’s nice because I can pull out some of the heavy hitters that I wouldn’t normally think of wearing when it’s 80 degrees out. Of course today the cold snap snapped and it was back up into the 70’s. So the heavy hitters are back in the cupboard to be enjoyed in the privacy of my home.
So I started hankering for the comfort scents. Ones like Lostmarc’h Laan-Ael, which smells to me like Froot Loops in milk. In a way that’s totally captivating and utterly sexy. At $85 for 100ML it’s also really affordable. Guerlain Spiriteuse Double Vanille is another one that I love as a comfort scent. It’s a rich, boozy, creamy vanilla that lasts forever and while a bit pricey at $225 the bottle is HUGE and you’ll likely have it forever because two spritzes is more than enough to be smelled. More and you’d drown.
But the one that I like the best as comfort is Lutens’ Rahat Loukoum. It’s a sweet cherry/almond candy delight with a dark side. As if the plate of sugary treats were being brought to you by a rather delicious looking host, who you might end up sampling later. It’s FINALLY available at the Lutens website, pricey at $290, but a trip to Paris ain’t cheap either.
Laan-Ael is available at LuckyScent, where I purchased a bottle. Double Vanille is available at Saks and Neiman Marcus (online anyway). I purchased at Saks. My bottle of Rahat was purchased of eBay years ago.
Okay, your turn. What are you’re favorite comfort scents? Let us know in the comments.
