    I haven't tried layering because I've spent a lot of time and money finding fragrances that work well for me all on their own. However, like everybody else, I've made more than my share of poor fragrance choices. I have plenty of "dogs" that I see everyday which fill me with the guilt of buyer's remorse. So, I wondered if I could disprove the old adage, "two wrongs don't make a right" by combining two blech fragrances and actually end up with something passable or maybe even wearable. I picked Burberry Brit for its powdery sweetness hoping it would sort out and temper the alphabet soup of notes that comprise Hugo Boss Hugo.

    Brit and Hugo... yeah, I've made some poor choices!

    Anyway, it was a day off and I wasn't going to gas anyone with this experiment so the combination went right on the skin, no preliminary blotter tests. First, a spray of Hugo then a spray of Brit. The result was both fragrances tempered each other for the better. It toned down the sweet powder of Brit while brightening and taming the mire of Hugo. Even though the combination still had the synthetic quality both fragrances are accused of individually, the pairing is definitely better than either Brit or Hugo on its own.

    Hmm, should I market this as Brugo or Hit?

    Interesting what Hoffeur said about the SA layering Royal Oud and Prada Candy. I will try Black Aoud and Prada Candy. Also I have tried Bulgari Black and Pink Sugar. I really liked it. Mostly I don't think of layering but I think I would like to come up with a combo for Fumerie Turque. I like it but it just needs something to be added to it.

    I heard tuscan leather & aventus are a good combination.. apply the tuscan leather first as it has a heavier oil content. Also aventus & royal oud.. and the aventus + royal oud combo was suggested by a creed rep according to dollars & scents on youtube.. I like him.. he seems like a nice guy. Aside from coach rob he's fast becoming one of my favorite reviewers.

    I wear Molecule 01 and Al Rehab Choco Musk, 3 to 1 ratio.

    Bond no 9 combo: New Haarlem and NY Amber work very well together.

    I met someone who swears by layering Fahrenheit with Dior Homme, but I haven't had the guts to try it.

    Also, I haven't tried it yet, but I'm convinced that Royal Oud would layer incredibly well with a scent that is fruit or citrus heavy so long as the bases don't clash. That's where a lot of people go wrong with layering. They smell top notes that work well together but completely forget that each scent will evolve in its own way, so it's easy to have a combo that smells great for a while and then turns to yuck.

    Bond No. 9 is generally designed to be compatible to mix with others of the line.

    I like to layer 3, my favorite is:
    Bleecker Street
    Manhattan
    Scent of Peace for Him

    I layer Atelier Orange Sanguine with Guerlain Vetiver and I've received compliments.

    Sometimes the one dimensional nothing-but-orange needs a bit of something extra.

    Default Re: Which two cologne scents do you like to wear layered together?

    Well, I do both. I do purchase and wear fragrances on the basis of there stand alone merit. But having said that, I layer certain fragrances that I know go well together to create a familiar fragrance with a new twist or sometimes the synergy creates a completely unique scent. In spite of one previous poster's belief, fragrances CAN match. One has to develop a feel for what "plays together" in a trial and error manner. I do it on my days off at home when my wife and son are out. If it smells good to me then I progress to letting others whose noses I trust. It's all about olfactory art and to me, about having fun. To each their own.

    Wasn't layering but I sampled Sugi while wearing Sel de Vetiver and the minimalistic nature and vetiver in both created an interesting effect.

    I let most things stand on their own but I do give a little boost to Dirty English with a little Axe Music body spray with Lynx Instinct body wash, it makes the drydown even better and improves longevity (have gotten compliments on this more than once). I sometimes layer Old Spice Pure Sport, body wash, deodorant and body spray with Grey Flannel, (it's just a nice combo that I happen to like ) I got the idea for that combo on here a long time ago back when I was just lurking. I generously add Aqua Velva Musk to Jovan Musk for men (have gotten several compliments on that little low cost combo) and I add a bit of Sunshine Spa Patchouli Oil to Halston Z-14 have also gotten compliments on that combo even from strangers. I know these are all cheapies for most of you guys but they get better when combined or at least the compliments would allude to that.

    Quite by accident I found that Roja Dove Diaghilev layered with Amouage Interlude Man is divine!

    I tried Encre Noire with Norwegian Wood by Kanon -- turned Encre Noire from earthy tree logs fallen in a forest to slightly more positive vibe of the same thing. I might keep my Kanon around to try it again, though I didn't like it much.

    Unless you use unscented soap or deodorant, if you think about it, most probably already do layer. Irish spring body wash, plus Right Guard Sports deodorant spray, plus a few sprays of Guerlain Vetiver smells one way, and probably smells differently when you mix or change any of the above.

    I definitely don't advocate for this venture but have done and will occasionally do TL layered immediately with "mighty Aventus"

    3 to 4 sprays of Tom Ford Extreme with 1 spray of Black Orchid (Seriously, only 1! Only 1!)

    I mentioned this in a thread I started for it, so if you want more info, here it is. TFE and Black Orchid. It's a killer combo.

    Wow. Layering with Interlude Man takes some serious balls. Hats off to you, my friend. The crazy thing is, that sounds like it just might work! ...or... it could be chaos

    Eau de Cartier Zeste de Soleil and Cartier Declaration Cologne.
    Cartier Must Pour Homme and Bulgari Black.
    Annick Goutal Neroli and Dior Ambre Nuit.
    Bulgari white tea and John Varvatos.
    Hermes Jardin Sur le Nil and Hermes Mandarine Ambree.
    I almost never spray in the same location - one on neck and one on arms, for example. I do this all the time.

    I love it. I think Yatagan would be awesome with Timbuktu. I am going to try this.

    Trussardi Inside and Cabochard.

    Pour Un Homme and Tea Rose.

    Por Un Homme and Patch (suggested in a post published yesterday: look at Basteri's question on lavander and patch scents).

    Fueguia 1833 El Mono de la Tinta and Opium.

    Bvlgari Black and Cuir de Russie (Chanel) / Knize 10.

    Fueguia 1833 La Joven Noche and whatever: it is pure sandalwood so it layers perfectly with everything. In the case of Bvlgari Black it works top notch.
