    Default Layering: Aventus and Tuscan Leather. It is good.

    I cannot take credit for this. The idea came from GentlemensCorner1914 on youtube. Actually technically he says it came from someone else first...Anyway, if interested start at 11:50. I know a lot of people are opposed to layering but this one really works IMO.

    I'd almost be afraid to layer these because they're both extremely strong.

    Will have to try this out. This recipe combines two of my most favorite things, Aventus and cocaine.

    You should never mix chemicals.

    Huh. Aventus... AND... Tuscan Leather. At once.

    Sounds like a fun experiment, but talk about sensory overload. Not something I'd try for the first time before going in to work. Thx for the heads-up though.

    NSIS: You are aware that the fragrances by themselves are mixed chemicals, not single ingredients?

    In all seriousness, point taken regarding layering, and this entire thread is at the risk of flaming. The thing is I don't really care because this one works for me. If no one else takes to it I guess it will be a unique signature. Just throwing this out there to share.

    It sounds very interesting but I must admit I never experiment in layering. I am sure it give you a different perspective on two good scents becoming one.

    Has to be the way to go with TL imo. I certainly can't wear it on it's own

    The pineapple of Aventus mixed in with the raspberry note of Tuscan leather. Sounds like a recipe for disaster. lol

    Why would you even consider this.....they're both marvels in their own right....this is perfume suicide if anything IMHO with all due respects ...peace

    Two strong ones.

    I've never layered anything. I'm always assuming they've done a better job blending than I will. These two are both great on their own, but I wouldn't want to mix them.

    I'm not a big fan of layering, but maybe I'll try it out. My first impression is that TL would totally overwhelm Aventus. Then again, maybe it all depends on my "weak" (?) Aventus batch - etc. etc. etc.

    The first guinea pig should report in.

    How about Tuscan Leather + Tobacco Vanille? Leather + Tobacco = Man Smell, but I'm curious which would overwhelm the other!

    The Tuscan leather does dominate the blend a bit, but the Aventus still blends very well and adds the effect of pineapple and black currant. This goes perfectly well with the raspberry. That being said I'm going to try it again this weekend with 2 sprays Aventus, one TL and see what that does. Will report back.

    Layering, mixing, blending...

    I am surprised by how many people say they do not do this. You are missing out that's for sure.

    I have achieved the best results compliments wise by layering or mixing and blending.

    One of my faves is TdH and Hypnose blended with Encre Noir. It's a masculine bomb.

    Can't wait to try this one. Love Aventus and Tuscan Leather.

    Seems odd to me. Both very strong scents. What's next, 1 Million + Interlude Man?

    Maybe I'll give it a try some time though. Thanks for the tip!
