    My partner is a layering fiend! Today was Quorum aftershave with Lomani. Nice! In fact he is keen on Quorum aftershave as a layering base, he has also worn this with David Beckham Intimately for Him to great effect. He also likes to use CK one as a base for layering : CK one and CK euphoria. Did I mention he loves layering? Lol

    I was wearing Sycomore and put on some Suave Advanced Therapy Body Lotion, and somehow the light floral scent of the Suave wiggled right into the Sycomore and it just worked out crazy good.

    I once read a review in the directory, where a lady wrote, that she enjoyed
    layering Kouros with Shalimar.
    Sounded too bizarre to be good, so, of course, I had to try it. IT WORKS!!!

    Layering perfumes is like layering different cuisines.

    Would you layer pasta with pad Thai?

    It may work once in a blue moon. Majority of the time they'll clash.

    I don't layer...I think a scent should be able to stand on it's own

    Cooking to me is all about finding ingredients that compliment each other. While pasta and pad Thai may not work, there are thousands of combinations that do. Layering perfume is the same kind of idea to me, if you know what you're doing it can be quite fun to come up with something new and unique, if you don't know what you're doing it can be a disaster.

    I've been layering MI with Aventus a lot lately and I love it! Also I quite like Tobacco Vanille with Tuscan Leather.

    Yes sometimes it works.

    Good bases for Most layering concoctions are Sprirituesse Double Vanille or L'Artisan's Amber.

    I don't really practice layering, but have tried it using perfumes of the same name: Terre D'Hermes EDT and EDP (sample).

    Creed's Virgin Island Water and Jo Malone's Lime, Basil and Mandarin.

    Being that Jo Malone's fragrances are designed to be layered with one another; the combination of Vetyver layered with their Amber and Lavender is a fresh heavenly scent. It reminds me a bit of the dry down of Aramis Tuscany per Uomo and also shares some similarities to Tom Fords Italian Cypress.

    Give it a whirl...

    I've had the rare occasion to add a touch of Grey Flannel to Silences by Jacomo. Rarely, very rarely.

    I tend to agree. Basically don't like the idea to try any combinations, or mix anything. But i have layered some vintage and current/newer version of some scent successfully. The result was good at least with the vintage Balafre and Balafre of 2000's (the latter supposed to be the same formulation as the vintage, but is not.)

    I like to layer things on top of Muscs Koublai Khan. It's kind of like a big, brown curtain just waiting for something to put on a show in front of it. It's especially good as a backdrop to fragrances that I find a little challenging to my masculinity. I even made a spray vial of MKK and Aromatics Elixir Parfumeur's Reserve.

    Recently, I have also been putting a bit of JAR Bed of Roses on top of Ferme tes Yeux. This is mainly because I can't quite handle Ferme tes Yeux on its own yet. It's like having training wheels.

    For a Zola Jesus show, I layered Bolt of Lightning on top of Bond No. 9 Swarovski Crystal Harrods Oud Limited Edition Celebrity Sparklepony. That was awesome and mind-bending. Much more so than Zola Jesus.

    I somewhat regretted layering Heeley Figuier over L'Eau d'Hiver. Layering only works for me if the frags occupy two very different ends of the spectrum; in this case, there was not enough separation, and I felt L'Eau d'Hiver was too obscured behind the lounder scent.

    I didn't want to start another layering thread...
    so the main idea for the post is "DON'T LIKE THE SCENT? - TIME FOR LAYERING!"

    The small sample of CREED Tabarome Millesime left me completely unimpressed
    (no tobacco noticed and I mean it, as I'm pipe and cigars smoker for about a decade),
    so not wanting to toss it, I decided layering.

    I thought of some consistent and linear scent with a good character, to add a twist to it.
    After looking at my wardrobe CDG Wonderwood came to mind quickly.

    The technique popped out of my head just as fast, and I put Wonderwood as I usually wear scents (couple o'sprays on the front, just below the neck and one dab behind each ear). New Tabarome went onto what I take to be my side-whiskers.

    The whole combo turned out to be quite nice... like ginger icing on a wooden cake.
    Interesting experience.

    Regards, Odor.

    Recently sprayed some Jacomo de Jacomo on He Wood Rocky Mountain Wood, and the result was pure bliss. Smelled like smoldering cedar chips, black pepper, and a "mineral" smell.

    Thanks for your contributions to this thread, all.

    I usually layer my cheapies and try to find decent combinations.
    2 sprays corduroy by zirh and 1 spray cuba red. It gives the cuba red a much needed sweetness but still retains its spiciness.
    2 sprays deaville by michael germaine and 1 spray gap 'the original' - i feel that 'the orignal' is much too harsh and rough so the deauville balances it out with a smooth tobacco base.

    try them if you can!
