    It's funny that you mentioned so many SL 'blends'. I too find them complementary to each other too.

    Though Gris Clair stands out on its own, I find myself adding a little of Pour le Jeune Homme to it.

    You beat me to it! I love this one, it's like Gaultier2 Eau Fraiche, if they would make such a thing. I know it sounds weird, it did to me at first, but those who own both in their wardrobe have to try it!

    My FAVORITE combo, though, is still Bvlgari Black + Goth Rosary Samhain. Imagine scents that evoke feelings of fall...especially like those scented candles with names like "fall harvest" or "pumpkin spice"...against a backdrop of smoke and vanilla. It's simply amazing!

    SL Vetiver Oriental + Terre Hermes

    Passage D'Enfer + Avignon

    I never wear vetiver oriental without terre hermes on top. they just compliment eachother so well

    I wear Bois alone all the time, but when it gets too hot, I put a spray of Mugler on top, and it keeps it drom getting to cloying.

    Passage is a little too floral on me alone, but layered with Avignon it is just right.

    Blending a perfume is defamation of the original intentions and artistic values of the perfumer. Should not be done.

    Layering is more acceptable than the permanent damage done by mixing two perfectly fine pieces.

    I just tried something that worked well for me - Tumulte (Lacroix) + Black Orchid (T. Ford).

    I sprayed a base of Tumulte and then just a few spritz of Black Orchid. It's very interesting, deep, woody scent, and it seemed to mute the sweetness of Orchid just enough. Wore it to work that way today and got several compliments!

    Smile Canoe and Navigator

    Both are inexpensive men's colognes made by Dana; Canoe back from the 30's I believe, Navigator from the 90's. Canoe by itself has a strong cedar/vanilla scent -- a distinctive scent but not always what I am in the mood for. Navigator is more fresh and citrusy. Together I find they balance each other nicely, harmonize, and have a more complex, interesting, and "richer" feel. A bit reminiscent of one of my favorite fragrances from the past: Burberry's original (no longer made and quite pricy if you can find someone willing to sell a bottle.)

    Tonight I will try Antidote over Mesmerize by Avon. Mesmerize quickly descends into a slightly discordant, pungent, vanilla and spices mix that is deeper than Antidote and should help thicken up the base. Antidote is much better blended though, and the transition from top to base is flawless. I hope the mesmerize doesn't overpower it.
