    I am not big into layering, but two fragrances that work very good as layering bases in my experience are Oud Luban by Aftelier and Cologne du Parfumeur by Guerlain.

    Layering is when you use soap/body wash and deodorant before spraying on the EDT/EDP fragrance (usually all of the same scent) in order to increase the longevity of a certain fragrance.

    Hardly ever layer, usually a single scent applied tends to develop so many complexities, subtleties, undertones I want to discover and better appreciate, almost any layering would thus just distract me.

    Default Layering? Share your combos.

    Hello all,

    I'm really intrigued about layering and would like to know more. What is the proper technique? Which notes go well together and which are a no-no?

    I hear TF Tobacco Vanille/Noir de Noir goes well with Tuscan Leather. Havent got round to trying it yet but will give it a try and report back

    Please share with us your experiences.... successes and otherwise

    Amen and Bogart pour Homme (easy on both). Other than that I haven't tried much else.

    Ambre narguile with poivre samarcande. more poivre than ambre for sure - 2:1 or better 3:1

    Amouage Homage and Creeds Boi Du Portgual is a good combo with gorgeous florals and great wood notes.

    I often use an EDC in the morning after stepping out of the shower. Many traditional EDC's are intended to work as a base for heavier fragrances, and they seem to work quite nicely if you pick the right one. Cologne du 68, despite being an EDT, is a favourite as it dries quickly to a subtle Guerlinade skin-scent that is gorgeous, and quite versatile.

    Layering is fun. I used to layer Philosphy's Falling in Love with Angel and got lots of compliments! I say, if you can pull it off have at it! It's probably a good idea to start layering with simpler fragrances rather than complex ones. But that's not to say complex fragrances can't go together.

    I typically don't, but had an SA layer Lacoste White (Blanc?) with Fahrenheit 32 to a very interesting effect. Worth a try sometime.

    I'm wearing Montales Aoud Lime on the one hand and Malle's Portrait of a Lady on the other. It's a lot like sitting in a garden of my dreams. I don't usually layer deliberately but when samples come in I end up with some quite interesting combinations. because I have no patience to wait for one sample to wear off before applying the next.

    Occasionally I layer fragrances, basically experimenting, and get some really good results. I may use a fragrance with low projection as a base, then layer over that another fragrance, with similar notes, that project better. I often find that the combo works well and I tend to receive many compliments.

    Default Mixing / Layering Madness

    Hey guys. So i've been experimenting quite a bit since i had so many samples laying around and I came up with some interesting mixtures. Some are what i've seen other people on this forum suggest, others are what i came up with. I thought i'd share my findings and see if anyone else has done some mad mixings of their own haha. Also if you have what i have, perhaps you can try out my mix and let me know your thoughts? Here goes:

    "midnight aventus" - 1:1 Creed aventus and Van Cleef & Arpels Midnight in Paris. I like this because it adds a creamyness to the smoky pineapple. one of my go-to date scents.

    PinaColada Aventus 1:1 Aventus + Virgin Island water - one of my partyscents. smoky pinacola

    Bond Dinner Jacket 1:1 creed millesime imperial + Tom Ford Grey Vetiver. I feel like bond when wearing this combo, lol

    One Million Gio - 1:1 aqua di gio + Paco rabanne one million. (one million first, then acqua di gio). A fresher party scent

    Aqua Million - 3x Aqua di Gio + 1x Paco One million. I pre-mixed this in an atomizer and let it sit for at least 3 days. To me it smells like a much more sophisticated fresh version of one million. less in-your face. more elegant.

    Gucci Tea & Soda - 1:1 Gucci Pour Homme II with Aqua di Gio. Smells like tea + italian soda

    Aqua Gold - 1:1 Cuba Gold with Aqua di gio. Felt like a fresh le male with hint of tobacco.

    Vanilla Soda 1:1 Thallium + Aqua di gio. I imagine this work work with Dior homme instead of thallium too. Smells like vanilla soda to me.

    Vanilla Temptation - 1:1 Axe Dark Temptation + Thallium. I found them to be pretty compatible with each other.

    *i added aqua di gio to a whole bunch of stuff, lol.

    Lemme know what you guys think!

    great thread.

    Looking forward to trying the la nuit and rochas man. SOunds good.

    I took 3 ml atomizers to mix my mugler frags. Did one with 1/3 A*men and 2/3 pure malt, 1/3 A*men and 2/3 Pure havane, and 1/2 Pure Havane 1/2 pure malt. Havent dealt into all 3 yet, but the amen pure havane is very interesting.


    For the a*men le male combo are you guys doing a 1:1 ratio?

    Default Re: Layering Frags

    La Nuit and Rochas is great. But I prefer to layer La Nuit with Midnight in Paris.

    Rochas with Potion is really interesting. The opening is a bit strange but afterwards I can't just stop sniffing myself.

    I don't layer niche fragrances except the TF Private Blends. TV + TL is my favorite so far.

    Default Has anyone ever stacked....

    Eau De Fraiche with Eau D'ete Summer Edition by Issey Miyake

    OMG it's amazing. Probably the best citrus scent I have ever experienced. When I smell this, I think of myself on a boat in the middle of the Caribbean drinking a Corona with lime as the sailing wind brings towards my nostrils the soothing smell of the ocean's breeze and then a buddy goes lets take a shot of bacardi and we chase it down with a glass off freshly squeezed orange juice.

    It's intoxicating. If anyone has those two bottles at hand, I suggest you immediately put it on your skin and enter a utopian state of mind.

    I never understood layering. Would you mix pepsi and mountain dew? But props to you if you can actually pull it off.

    No, but that's only because I wouldn't even drink Mountain Dew if my teeth were on fire. Barqs and Sprite however is delicious!

    Yes I have layered before, with some success. Actually a company like Jo Malone advocates layering their scents, but I'm sure that's just a shameless ploy to get you to buy multiple bottles.
