Understanding the Art of Layering

Share

'Layering' means 'superposition' in French.

The art of layering is a technique that originated in the Middle East. It consists of skillfully combining 2 or 3 fragrances simultaneously to create a unique fragrance with a much more personal aspect.

Another advantage of layering is having the freedom and power to change your scent according to your desires, moods, and activities, in all simplicity.

Any appreciation of smell is subjective, so there's no overlap you can't do as long as you appreciate the result. Trying and failing is the best way to learn and perfect the art of layering your ideal signature scent.

However, there are still a few basic rules to avoid that you should keep in mind to avoid making mistakes:

1. A SEARCH FOR HARMONY:

Try to layer fragrances that are in different note categories in order to achieve a balanced and harmonious fragrance. For example, it's better to combine a very heady fragrance that's rich in base notes such as wood, with a lighter, floral or fruity fragrance that's concentrated in heart or top notes.

2. ON A GOOD NOTE:

Don't layer fragrances if the notes are already too complex. Some fragrances may be already be composed of several dozen notes, so mixing them together will probably create a shapeless mass without a dominant note.

3. DO IT IN THE RIGHT ORDER:

Layer the heaviest fragrances first before moving onto more heady, light, and delicate notes. Doing the opposite will crush the lighter fragrances and you may not be able to notice them.

4. A LITTLE PATIENCE:

Wait a few seconds between each spray. This will give the first fragrances time to settle on your skin before blending harmoniously with your second fragrance.
