I’m running the risk of sounding TOTALLY Grade-A creepy, but….puppies! Hahah. I just love the way our dogs smell, especially after baths.

Also, grape. I associate grape with my mom – she used to drink lots of grape stuff, it’s her favorite. So I have lots of Grape/Vineyard candles that are the best. ๐Ÿ™‚

ETA: Oh, and books! Especially old books!

Warm vanilla sugar (from B&BW), clean laundry, my pajamas (I can’t describe it, but reminds me of my childhood), and anything from a baby (except diapers).

The smell of my SO’s cologne… it comforts me! And the smell of old blankets, because it reminds me of my grandparents home haha!

Bleach reminds me of my Nana cleaning the house and Old Spice reminds me of my grandpa ๐Ÿ™‚ He always smelled so good even in his 80’s. Crew hair gel reminds me of when my dad gels his hair for special ocassions, that stuff smells so good!!

My husband’s body wash and deodorant makes me happy too, I used his deodorant once before working the night shift because I couldn’t find mine and I found it so comforting to smell him all night haha… since I couldn’t sleep in his armpit all night like usual ๐Ÿ˜‰

Apparently I find men’s bathroom products very comforting haha

Sunscreen and coconut scents, anything beachy reminds me of my family when I was a kid. We’d always take a beach vacation every year and the smell has ingrained itself in my memories.

The smell of a camp fire! This is the most comforting smell in the world to me, as I grew up camping literally ALL summer. In fact, my wedding will be in the state park that I grew up camping in!

re: bleach

I cannot stand that smell. I avoid cleaning with cleach at all costs (because of the smell and because of the toxicity). My BFF loves the smell. It’s funny how one smell comforts on person but disgusts another.

Vanilla, Lavender, I adore Johnson’s vanilla baby body lotion ๐Ÿ˜› 

I think vanilla is my go-to fragrance for comfort. I have about 3 different body sprays in vanilla sugar.
