Layering Your Way To A Signature Scent

Layering Your Way To A Signature Scent

Stumbling upon the perfect fragrance isn't easy—though there are some excellent experts tips on this topic floating around—and sometimes you just need to take matters into your own hands.

Make yourself standout with a one-of-a-kind scent concoction. Before you start aligning your perfumes though, there are a few things to consider.

One, what scents blend well together? Clashing is a really hit-or-miss move, believe me. Dab one option on one wrist and another on the another and see how these two smells work together.

Go about your day and see whether the initial smell transforms into something less appealing...because, honestly, it usually does. 

Two, you should be a little cautious about splashing together certain chemicals. In fact, you might want to consider merely conducting actual ingredient-mixing experiments with natural fragrances, not department store offerings.

And please don't apply perfumes directly on top of one another; you never know what kind of odors you might accidentally conjure up by doing so. 

Three, enlist the help and the nose of an honest friend. Have you ever loved the lingering scent of a product, only to discover that those around you loathed it? Yeah, that's not fun. Ask for feedback!

It doesn’t take much to learn about the art of layering scents. In fact, there are many books and tutorials on the subject! Don't shy away from doing some research.
