Thread: Layering Frags

  1. #181

    Default Name two colognes you layer.

    I tried layering Burberry Summer Men and Rive Gauche. Bad idea.

    You have to layer Cool Water and Grey Flannel! Use a 2:1 ratio. Two sprays of CW + 1 spray of Grey Flannel.

    Believe it or not, it smells better than GIT!

    I tried a little Vetiver and Habit Rouge on my arm a few days ago, think I might give it a full wearing in the near future.

    I have found that Ambre Gris layers well with a number of fragrances. Arpege Pour Homme layers with Hiris. Encre Noir works well with a little Tumulte Pour Homme.

    Encens Flamboyant with L'heure Bleu. brilliant constrasting notes bring harmony to two fragrances I cant wear by themselves.
    It happened whilst I was testing at nm. Guerlain on the left, Goutal on the right. I didnt love either scent alone, but as soon as i brought them together, I knew that I needed to buy them for this reason.
    I don't layer any other scents....

    I bought Tom Ford Japon Noir and Tobacco Vanille and a different Sales Associate then the one I was dealing with suggested that I layer the two and went ahead and did it on her self and it smelt amazing, so I think I'm gonna give that a try and if it works out well I might mix some of it together and hope it stays the same .

    Sometimes I alter this combo by using one spray Eau Sauvage and two shots Armani Emporio He, to get a nice lemon/orange blend, adding the patchouli and musk oil! That works nicely too. Have also substituted Creed Bois de Cedrat in place of the Eau Sauvage.

    I could never find a really good fragrance with pronounced clove, so I got some clove fragrance oil--layer a few drops of that onto an appropriate fragrance, and I like that too. Only drawback of some fragrance oil is a slight chemical/synthetic smell, but it's still worth it.

    By the way, I usually layer on different areas of the chest to avoid mixing the juice.
    You're lucky this worked out well. I about choked myself out when I tried mixing Bulgari PH and L'eu De Issey 50/50. It was terrible and from then on I didn't think Bulgari would go well with any type of citrus, but maybe it was the florals in Issey that made it terrible.. not sure.

    I'm thinking about trying Guerlain Vetiver with John Varvatos or Guerlain Vetiver with Bulgari Black. I'm trying to get something ominous and so dark and deep you can't tell how how deep it goes. I might even try John Varvatos with Bulgari Aqua just for fun.

    I tried a sample I had of Castle Forbes Krieg and Neroli today. I liked them both and still can't decide which one I prefer the most, but just for the fun of it, I sprayed one on top of the other and wow, they compliment each other. I'm not buying both though, the Neroli Limited Edition costs and arm and a leg.

    Default Re: Your best layering combos

    I stumbled upon a crazy combination by wearing a sweater infused with a previously worn scent. The old scent was Douce Amere and the new one was Black Aoud. The result? A huge amber, shimmering with the oud of the Montale and softened by the smooth integrated woods of the Lutens. The result was fantastic, but probably more subtle than actually layering them immediately. Considering doing that though, as opposed to letting one dry down first.

    Oh man, I found two great combo's. I bought F Pour Homme Black by Salvitore Ferragamo, and it's a fairly minimalistic frag that's awesome by itself and it just seemed like it would be able to mix well and sure enough I found some keepers!

    F Pour Homme Black combined with Ungaro III = pretty wicked mix, adds some sweetness to the Ungaro that's very pleasant once it drys down a bit.

    F Pour Homme Black combined with Terre d'Hermes = This is just bizarre and awesome at the same time. Sweet and slightly fruity, very round smelling.

    I've only tried a few combinations, but one that I enjoy quite regularly is 2 parts Guerlain Vetiver and 1 part Creed Millesime Imperial. Someone also asked about Creed Royal Scottish Lavender combinations. The only one I've tried which works is 3 parts RSL and 1 part MKK. Adds depth to the RSL. Creates an air of mystery is the only way I can describe it.

    I've been experimenting with combining 2 scents recently, and out of my 20+ bottle wardrobe, tonight I've stumbled on the best combination I think I'll ever find. I'm in love with F Pour Homme Black, it's a great minimalist composition that smells amazing on it's own, and for some reason I've always felt it could be a great fragrance to combine with. Anyway, I've tried mixing it with a bunch of stuff in my wardrobe and many have been good, but nothing tops this one below.

    F Pour Homme Black by Salvitore Ferragamo
    Top Notes: Lavender.
    Middle Notes: Black Pepper, Coriander.
    Base Notes: Labdanum, Tonka.

    Mixed with:

    YSL Live Jazz
    Top Notes: Bitter Lemon Peel, Grapefruit, Iced Mint..
    Middle Notes: Coriander, Wild Reed, Rhubarb Leaf..
    Base Notes: Cedarwood, Ambergris, Hint of Vanilla

    Many know that Live Jazz is a kick in the face bright flash of zest with a very aromatic dry down.
    not many know F Black, but it is a very smooth, warm, fairly sweet scent that's not all that spicy.

    I've always thought Live Jazz could use a bit of something to balance out the bitterness/dryness by adding a bit of sweetness and that's exactly what F black does and more. Just imagine Live Jazz warmed up and sweetened a bit. The result is extremely superb
