    Default Spicing up a Floral

    If I wanted to take a fresh floral scent e.g White Linen and spice it up for an evening out, what is the best oil to layer it with? I don't want to go all out and create a new fragrance, just experimenting a bit with layering. What one ingredient would you add to a floral to make it more dark and mysterious but retain its femininity? eg. patchouli, sandalwood, musk.. something else?

    I would try allspice, clove or black pepper.

    I would use vetiver or patchouli for that dark and earthy type smell that is good for evening. Cinnamon bark or clove bud ...a few drops will add spice....Go easy on these though.

    I used to wear White Linen in the summer....I liked it just by itself.

    Just experiment with a few oils...
