    Default My Favourite Fragrance Layerings.

    Vintage or Modern. Doesn't matter.
    Layering of scents/frags is something that I find interresting and fun to 'practice' every now and then, as it also helps me to better understand scent-profiles and also think outside of the box.
    Liked by some as being fun and exploring. Frowned upon by others as being pointless and maybe even sacrilege? Doesn't matter.
    Y'all are welcome here!
    Which frags do YOU like to sometimes pair up?

    For me, today, is '70s Chanel Pour Monsieur and current Boucheron Pour Homme.
    I love the creamy sandalwood and oakmoss (and just the overall scent) of CPM with the citrusy, sandalwood/rose combo of BPH. The result is stunning as they compliment eachother so well.
    Creamy, mossy, woodsy and gentlemanly with a touch of musky green.

    The current, bone-dry version of Jacomo de Jacomo layers spectacularly well with Tobacco Vanille, producing the greatest tobacco scent never made.

    Wow, sounds delicious! Wouldn't have thought that one up myself, but now I can easily imagine it. So it's safe to say that current version of JdJ is a good acquisition?

    1 spray of Versace Dreamer wait for it to dry off - add 1 spray of Lalique Hommage a l Homme on top - smashes it. Tabcco Iris Voilet.

    The current JDJ is challenging, I think, in its bracingly ashy, dry texture (the vintage is greener and rounder), but I think it's distinctive enough to be worth a buy.

    The super classical, churchy CK Obsession for Men goes well with:

    - JPG Ultra Male mixed at a ratio of like 40:60 or smaller (and probably with its clone Zara Gourmand Leather too for that matter)
    - Enrique Iglesias Adrenaline


    Lalique pour Homme Lion 20:80 with:
    - MFK Aqua Vitae
    - MFK Amyris homme

    Giving some backbone to otherwise gourmand or fairly 'lightweight' fragrances.

    That sounds like an interesting pairing.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    The SL and T&C is awesome. I don’t think I ever tried T&C with Sandringham.

    I'd like to think the listed notes of the two, many of them would complement each other.

    I actually tried that last night with a 1990 bottle of 1881. Whooooah that was a harsh take-off, as it is so incredibly louder/stronger/sharper than the current 1881. I applied 2:2. Should be more like 1:2.
    The current 1881 is ofcourse more round-edged but it's aroma and leather-note blends beautifully with that of TU to the point where they almost become 1 fragrance. That combo I apply 4:2 (1881:TU).

    I only have the vintage, so I’ll try to remember your invaluable notes when I get around to layering. Thanks!

    Appreciate it guys Now I'm curious what you'd think upon smelling those mixtures.

    Sprayed Gourmand Leather over Obsession today, once each. I like that pair as well as I suspected. Needs a bit more of the Zara though.

    Among (incidentally by now unplanned/involuntary vintage) scents, so far had few noteworthy layering experiences, particularly (by far involuntarily vintage, early release) Dior Homme with (same situations as Dior Homme) Eau de Cedre Bleu by Yves Rocher-the powdery notes in both resulting into an quite fine early 2000s style vintage combo

    Default My Favourite Fragrance Layerings.

    What is this sacrilege?! Vintage doesn’t get it done, so now we’re layering top and heart notes to get the vintages right? Can a mod get in here and straighten some people out? What’s next, layering Djedi, with Nobile, then topping it off with Cool Water, Curve, and Sauvage?!


    In all seriousness... I don’t do many layerings (modern or vintage) in general. However, here are a couple that I find to be outstanding:

    -as recommended by a dear friend: Caron Pour Un Homme with vintage or modern Agua Lavanda by Puig. It is an exceptional combination.
    -accidentally discovered: Paco Rabanne Eau de Sport and then after it’s dried down adding a layer of Cool Water Summer Fizz. This combo is an absolute champion on humid, hot, rainy days.


    Now I need to see what actually layers well with Djedi. Mummies? Anyone have a bottle they’re willing to offer up in the name of science?

    Yeah, if anybody has a random bottle of Djedi, I’m more than happy to get in on the science experiment too! Lol

    I sprayed on some Norne yesterday, and put a small drop of HJ Soudain l’ Hiver on top of it, wondering what Norne would be like with some bright beautiful pine. It was really nice, but I think it would have been better putting down the SLH first, then Norne.

    Man, it sure sounds good. I got the good ol' Aramis cologne and also had the current Devin, alas I chucked it a while ago 'cause it was harsh and searing sharp in my schnozz. However, I am hunting for an older version of it and I also really wanna try out that combo, 'cause it seriously sounds off the chain. Well done!
