I was wondering if anybody has layered these two amazing scents... What would the outcome be like? If you have how many spritz of each and where would you apply them. Thank

The best way to test fragrances for likability, longevity, and projection is to get samples. Most department stores have stopped giving out samples, but you can test the fragrances there in the store. REMEMBER, a fragrance will not smell the same on a test paper as it will on your skin.

For Niche house samples, the easiest ways to try is to buy samples from THe Perfumed Court, or

I actually do this with a lot of my other hobbies, leaving them for awhile and picking back up from time to time. I have too many hobbies/interests to engage in all of them or any number of them at once. I sort of rotate them unless
Today we will talk about Notes. Like a symphony, a fragrance is a combination of many notes.
Top notes are the first initial odor you smell when you spray on a fragrance. These are generally very short lived notes, that disappear or lessen within the first several minutes to an hour. Often Basil, Bergamot, Eucalyptus, Grapefruit, Lemon, Lemongrass, Orange, Peppermint, or Pine, they have a quick evaporation rate, and don't last.
The next notes are the Middle notes, or Heart
