Expert Tips on Successful Perfume Layering

  1. Understand the Notes: Get familiar with the fragrance notes in your perfumes. Identify the top, middle, and base notes to ensure they complement each other harmoniously when layered. Experiment with floral, fruity, woody, and oriental scents to find your perfect combination.

  2. Start with a Solid Foundation: Begin by applying a fragrance-free body lotion or unscented oil as a base. This will help your layered perfumes adhere better to your skin and extend their longevity.

  3. Play with Intensity: Layer perfumes with varying intensities to create depth and complexity. Combine a strong, long-lasting scent with a lighter fragrance to strike the perfect balance and avoid overpowering the senses.

  4. Experiment with Complementary Scents: Choose perfumes with complementary scent profiles to achieve a harmonious blend. For example, pair a citrusy fragrance with a floral or woody scent for a refreshing and alluring combination.

  5. Test and Adjust: Remember, perfume layering is all about experimentation. Test different combinations on your skin to see how they evolve over time. Don't be afraid to adjust the ratio or switch up the order of application until you find the ideal blend.

  6. Layer Strategically: Apply each perfume in strategic locations on your body to create a captivating aura. Focus on pulse points like wrists, neck, and behind the ears, where body heat helps release the fragrance gradually throughout the day.

  7. Take Note of Season and Occasion: Consider the season and the occasion when layering perfumes. Lighter, fresher scents work well for daytime and warmer months, while richer, spicier fragrances add warmth and allure during the evening and colder seasons.

Our perfume community recommends

'Sand Service layers beautifully with peach or vanilla fragrances. Try to layer it with a peach body mist, or Nishane HSW, or try it with Vanilla 28 from Kayali!'

'Passport Amour layers well with vanilla/benzoin scents'. It reminds me of my favorite place in world- Paris. It is full of flowers, sweet at first, but not too sweet, and then comes a more masculine scent that I totally love. It is the sign for the modern, independent, flirty, sensual people that knows its self worth.

'Vanilla CEO is perfect layered to add sweetness to another scent ( I mixed it with Kayali Lovefest). When applied to damp skin, the scent does last all day. Deffo recommend it!

Adding Art Life to Mantles The Whipp Cream is really pleasant. The Citrus tombola that comes out of the layering takes me straight to Sicily. It gives a fresh and activating feeling. I also smell a ginger note which boost my energy!
