Did you know that how you wear scent day to day doesn’t start and end with a spritz of your favourite perfume? Oh no, with fragrance layering, you can amp up the effects of your chosen scent by pairing it with complementing products. Want to know more? Here’s everything you need to know about layering perfume and the combos we love here at The Perfume Shop.
What is fragrance layering?
Fragrance layering is a way to combine more than one scent on your skin to create a truly unique aroma. You can custom build a scent that works for your current mood or the occasion you’re getting ready for.
How do you layer perfumes?
Fragrance layering doesn’t necessarily mean spraying one perfume on top of the other. To master this, you really need to know which notes work best with each other and how top, heart, and base notes work in harmony with one another.
For fragrance layering beginners, we suggest working with your signature scent and complimentary scented body products like shower gels and body lotions.

What’re the benefits of fragrance layering?
Okay, we hear you! Adding a few extra steps to your morning routine may not be for everyone, especially those don’t-talk-to-me-until-I-have-had-my-morning-coffee-types, but trust us – it’s completely worth it!
With fragrance layering, not only do you get the freedom of creating a scent to reflect your personality, but you can also extend how long the fragrance lasts on your skin. Alternatively, you can enjoy a more subtle fragrance experience by using just the scented body product.
Fragrance layering combos we love
Traditionally, with fragrance layering, you would combine two fragrances with notes in common, such as jasmine or rose and go from there. However, many fragrance houses have done the hard work for you by producing matching products that work in tandem.
Here’s a selection available from The Perfume Shop, just waiting to enhance your fragrance routines.
The Perfect Bundle: Dylan Blue by Versace
It could not be simpler to master the art of fragrance layering than with Versace’s Dylan Blue collection. Hop in the shower and lather up with the scented shower gel, moisturise and tone the skin with the aftershave balm, prep yourself for the day with the deodorant stick and finally, the all-important final touch, a spritz or two of the Eau de Toilette.
For Creating Special Memories: Coco Mademoiselle by CHANEL
Indulge in a complete fragrance layering ritual with the one, the only Coco Mademoiselle by LUXURY French fashion house, Chanel. Leave your skin delicately scented with the foaming shower gel, build up the fresh, oriental notes with the hydrating body cream and finish with a delicate spritz of the iconic Eau de Parfum spray.
