    Default Layered A*Men Pure Leather and A*Men Taste Of Fragrance

    Layered these two and I have to admit that the result is great. Of course one couldn't layer Pure Shot with any from the line, but in this instance I wonder, is Pure Line in a way meant to be layered? Mayhaps not from the marketing point of view, but from the perfumers per se? Most of the Pure line is quite compatible, except B*Men, not the Pure line flanker obviously, and Pure Shot. Although I am giving a serious thought of making a little test with B*Men as well. And maybe next time I might layer A*Men with just a tad bit of Pure Havane.

    I'm thinking, someone else on this site has most likely tried this or at least gave it some thought, I'd be glad to read about the experiences.

    I wouldn't layer any of TM's A*men fragrances.. They are known for changing during their time on your skin & their complexity from using so many notes. I imagine that, along with the strength of these fragrance wouldn't put out a very pleasant vibe & would be just too much.

    Pure however is basically A*men with no tar & B*men is just A*men with a chilli accord so I can see that working well enough.

    For now it works well, smells somehow a bit like Griotte

    Feel the same way. Love them all but each one by itself.

    Haven't tried, but I don't see why not. Most of them seem to share the same patchouli base, including Pure Shot. The only one that I think would clash is Mugler Cologne.

    I've been layering recently if the first scent I apply bores me. I wore PL the other day and enjoyed it as is.

    I hate threads like this - makes me want to go and blind buy Taste Of Fragrance!

    I'm thinking about it.

    Indeed it has its charms, took me a while to start appreciating it and see the subtle differences from the original A*Men.

    Taste is great on it's own

    I think layering sort of detracts from each fragrance you use -- sort of 'lessens' them
