Its actually not too difficult to come up with something that works. A good rule to follow is to not mix 2 scents from the same family or that feature the same note, though even that is not written in stone. Mixing a fresh citrus and an oriental is probably the easiest to make work because they are so dissimilar. If the frags mixed are too close to each other, it can be a mess. The Kouros/Bulgari experiment is a little more risky, but I can still see it working. [/quote]
I really don't see the reasoning behind this. You're bound to create a bigger mess if you start blending polar opposites. I tend to blend fragrances from within the same family/note or at least with some sort of similarity so that the two or three fragrances compliment each other, rather than fight it out and clash. For example, Ungaro III and Voleur de Roses both share a melancholic tone and are both accentuated with the fragrant, rich scent of moist rose petals. What's created is an even more beautiful, moody, romantic rose fragrance.
I also still don't see the kouros/bvlgari blend as risky just because bvlgari, to begin with, is such a light scent.
