Layering Francesca Bianchi Perfumes?
I am a perfume lover, just like you; and just like you I am not content with my +300 pieces collection and would like to explore new possibilities.
The Principles of Layering
What’s layering? It’s using 2 different perfumes at the same time and enjoying the magic alchemy that they create. What we want to achieve is actually a new balance, a new presence, and not just Perfume 1 and Perfume 2 mixed together that in reality still smell like Perfume 1 and 2. You want to enjoy something new, you want Perfume 3.
The basic principle is to juxtapose 2 fragrances that are different but share the same spirit, in other words some similar notes. This already helps the blending and will probably make the result more pleasing rather than mixing 2 totally different things.
You might start with a fragrance that you would like to boost and add another one that serves that purpose.
A fresh-rosy one that you like a lot but doesn’t have the wished development in the dry-down; a citrusy one that doesn’t last too long, and you’d like to have it boosted; or a fragrance that you love but you find too flat, and you’d like to add more dimension to it.
Now let’s try some possible layering combinations
