How to Layer Perfumes to Create a Custom Scent

Fragrance layering can bring a unique and personal touch to your scent. The combination of multiple fragrances on top of one another can create complex, interesting and unusual scents that would be difficult for anyone else to replicate. Here’s how you can layer perfumes to create your own custom scent:

Step 1: Choose Your Fragrances

Before you start layering your fragrances, it’s important to select the individual perfumes you want to combine. There is no right or wrong way to pick the perfect combination of scents, but here are some tips:

  • Select Different Types: Choose fragrances from two different types, such as woody and floral.
  • Match Scents by Notes: To create an interesting fragrance profile, match complimentary notes such as citruses, woods and florals.
  • Be Mindful of Intensity: Be mindful when picking – a light perfume won’t stand out if layered over dominant base notes.

Step 2: Start with Base Notes

Once you have picked your fragrances, start with the most dominant base note. This is usually at the end of the notes pyramid and will have the longest lasting power when layered together correctly. Spray your chosen base note all over your body, then let it dry before applying any other scents.

Step 3: Layer Middle Notes

Next, choose your middle note, or ‘heart’ note. This single fragrance should create a more intense noise than your base note. Spray it starting at the center of your body, such as in the chest area, then head upwards towards your throat, arms and shoulders.

Step 4: Apply the Top Notes

Finally, apply the top note (also known as the head note). This is usually a light scent and provides a subtle finishing touch to your layered scent profile. Start spraying it at around mid-chest and move upward towards throat and collarbone areas. Once all fragrances have been evenly layered, leave them to combine and settle over a period of time.

Step 5: Enjoy Your Custom Scent!

You’ve done it! You’ve now created your very own unique blended scent that no one else will have. Enjoy spritzing it on throughout the day or saving it for special occasions – either way, you can bask in the knowledge that your signature scent is one of a kind.
