Do you dream of being able to wear a unique fragrance, despite not having the budget for a bespoke scent from a master perfumer? Good news! The layering trend is here to shake things up and we couldn’t be happier! To find out how to choose a perfume, read on to learn everything you need to know about this new beauty trend you’ll love!
What is perfume layering?
The art of layering involves combining different fragrances to create a single scent. Layering fragrances is a great way to create a combination of different scents that creates a bespoke perfume that will last longer and there’s no need to pay an extortionate price for a professional to do it for you. In other words, it’s all about mixing the different perfumes you already have to invent your own olfactory signature. Wearing a fragrance that no one else can wear is the ultimate dream, isn’t it?
Perfume: the different kinds of layering
In perfumery, this technique involves layering or using several cosmetic products at the same time. Body lotion or cream, shower gel, deodorant and even perfume: a range of exquisite scents blend together with one another to create a beautifully perfumed bubble. One thing’s for sure: you’ll make quite an impression!
Middle Eastern layering
In this part of the world, layering is common among both men and women. The ultimate beauty routine in the Middle East? Applying a musky body cream before applying a fragrance with a truly unique composition called bakhoor: an oud-based perfume is mixed with another fragrance.
Our advice for successful layering
Here are our tips for successfully mixing and matching your perfumes and creating the perfect blend of different combinations to find your signature scent:
- While you layer fragrances, enhance the oriental character of a perfume by adding a note of vanilla.
- Add a certain freshness to a fragrance by choosing hesperide scents with their citrus notes.
- Emphasize a note within the same olfactory family: add pure vanilla to an oriental perfume that already features vanilla, for example.
- Choose the right olfactory combinations: floral notes such as rose and jasmine, go very well with fruity scents to create lighter combinations; spicy perfumes work perfectly with vanilla accords.
- Moreover, when it comes to layering fragrances, limit yourself to combining two fragrances.
Accessible to all, fragrance layering makes it possible to create a unique fragrance in just a few spritzes. But it’s a good idea to learn the rules before starting out! Need advice on how to choose a perfume for your personality? Follow the guide!
