Scent is one of those things that is reminiscent of something or someone, or a particular memory. People use scents as a memory, it’s like a time machine that transports us to the particular memory when we smelt or wore that fragrance.

People often associate fragrance with person, and for that signature scent is a must.

There are a lot of fragrances in the market, and people tend to gravitate towards the affordable ones, which are generic and people know what they are wearing. This leads to no particular person in mind as they can associate that fragrance with a lot of people.

To prevent this from happening, the layering comes to your rescue.

What is Perfume Layering?

Perfume layering is the process of spraying 2 or 3 fragrances and or perfumes on your skin- primarily to make it last longer, and secondly, to get a unique scent that cannot be copied by another person.

This process is only applicable to perfumes and body mists with same scent profile and mimicing notes.

How To Layer Perfumes?

For the beginners, if you are starting your collection, start buying fragrances with the same vibe and similar notes. You can layer perfumes with body mists as well.

Buy single note perfumes or body mists, or a single note dominant fragrance.

I have many fragrances and if I want to have a fragrance that is spicy and sweet at the same time, I spray those two together to get both the fragrances mixed and give me that DNA I want.

For example- You have a perfume say Kayali Deja Vu White Flower, which is soft, feminine and pleasing to the nose in a comforting way, and you want to have a spicy and boozy element in that perfume to elevate that fragrance.

You are going to pair it or layer it with Kayali Vanilla Royale Sugared Patchouli, which is a spicy vanilla fragrance with a chocolaty drydown.

Both the fragrances layered together gives a really sexy scent which is spicy yet playful but also sexy and comforting at the same time.

How To Layer Body Mists with Perfumes?

Body mists are lighter in concentration as compared to perfumes. Body mists have low fragrance oil concentration, whereas perfumes have high concentrated oil, giving is more longevity.

To layer body mists with perfume, start by spraying body mists on the skin first. After it settles for a minute, apply the perfume with similar notes that you want to spray.

Perfume Layering not only gives a unique fragrance for your signature scent, but also makes your fragrance last long.

Which Body Mist Should I go for?

If you are starting your collection, go for the affordable ones in your area, or else go for Bath & Body Works Fine Fragrance Mist.

I personally use Victoria’s Secret body mists first, and then I go for the perfume layering.

You can use any body mist you like, but if you want mist that lasts long too, go for Victoria’s Secret or else Bath & Body Works.

The 3 Perfume Layering Hacks

To smell good, and not overdoing your fragrance, you need to keep in mind few things:

Hack No.1: Always spray the body mist first, if you’re layering perfume with body mists. And if you’re layering perfume with perfume, I would recommend you spraying both together, or one right after the other.

Hack No.2: Perfume layering should not be overwhelming to you, and others. Spray on your pulse points, around your neck, and on your dress (if you want to).

Hack No.3: If you’re using scented body lotion or body oil, be careful with the fragrance. If the note of the body cream or the body oil doesn’t complement with the fragrance you’re gonna wear, that will make you smell worse.

Keep in mind these hacks and you’ll love layering fragrances.
