    This is a spectacularly good pairing! The aggressively spicy nature of Jacomo softens the sweetness of TV, and vice versa.
    Sounds nice, I'll definitely try this combo.


    Other frags I have layered -

    * Roger & Gallet Open + Remy Latour Cigar
    * TF Italian Cypress + Polo Green

    Discovered not long ago that a base swipe of Rising Phoenix Man Musk Attar followed by a few sprays of Eau Sauvage is a pretty darn good combo for me.

    Now that's some real creativity! I think Encre Noire is a criminally underrated layering fragrance, especially with bright citrus/floral scents. Anything that gives it some top notes, since it's already primarily made up of base notes. I'll have to try the Declaration/Bentley combo too. Can't quite imagine what that would be like but I'm curious now.

    My most recent Encre Noire experiment was EN + Jean Couturier Coriandre. They meld together quite nicely into a floral/herbal femme EN.

    Banana Republic Neroli Woods with Lalique Encre Noire Sport

    Bought Neroli Woods and thought it was awesome, but too much Neroli for not so much woods. Thought about a fragrance that I had with a strong wood base that could complement Neroli Woods without clashing with it and Encre Noire Sport immediately came to mind. Tried it and it works really well.

    My somewhat unexpected but successful layering duo is: YSL L'Homme (classic) + Nicolai Cuir Cuba Intense in proportions of 2 or 3 sprays of YSL per 1 of Nicolai. Nicolai adds a lot of depth to the fresh-spicy L'Homme while the latter smoothens otherwise liquorice-dominant Cuir Cuba Intense. The entire thing develops wonderfully together.

    I've tried layering classic Polo with Polo Cologne Intense. I prefer them separately though.

    I like this combo too.

    Bois du Portugal x Royal Oud = ultimate dry woody Creed combo

    I recently discovered a nice combo. I had sprayed on Aramis one recent morning, then a few hours later when it had dried down a bit, sprayed Fahrenheit on top. Imagine Fahrenheit, but with more leather, moss, and musky animalic notes.

    Saw a review recently where someone compared the opening of Montale Aoud Leather to Mugler Cologne - the leather note in the former is so strong it’s hard to parse out what else is going on around it, but the layering experiment seems to confirm the affinity - they worked together pretty seamlessly.

    I don't like layering - but I do like to wear two different fragrances a day if possible.

    So sometimes it happens that the tenacious base of the first scent remains when spraying the second one.

    And wow, what a happy accident today: Givenchy Gentleman Originale on top of Krizia Moods Uomo (sprayed a few hours earlier) smells absolutely wonderful - I dare say even better than either on its own.
    Spray less, love more.

    Loving Fahrenheit Parfum + Moonlight in Heaven today. The violet leaf and coconut cream fight for attention in an amazing way.

    Elie Saab Vetiver + Neroli. These two share a common DNA and clove note and work very well together. They’re each a bit linear on their own, but together they sing beautifully.

    It's been years since I owned both fragrances, but one of the few successful results I had was layering Egoiste with Chanel Pour Monsieur Concentree.

    The result smelled uncannily similar to Caron Le 3 Homme. I don't recall ever layering two fragrances and have it smell similar to another fragrance in the way that combination did.

    By similar method, though I did consider what to wear this evening, so not random : CdG Black (SOTD) + Mona di Orio Cuir (SOTE). Black has a caraway note, plus some cumin, and Cuir has cumin, and both have that dark, smoky, birch tar thing going on. Works well. Always good to find a succession that works without having to shower or wash.
    Summer is here : greens, vetiver, aromatics. Selecting from : Bottega Veneta Bottega Veneta pour Homme EdT; Guerlain Vetiver, Etro Palais Jamais. Aramis Tuscany; Penhaligon's Juniper Sling; Knize Sec; Caron Yatagan; . Evening : Etro Ambra, Etro Shaal Nur; Knize Ten, Penhaligon's Elixir.
