The Art Of Layering Your Fragrance | Soleil Essentials

Updated: Feb 7, 2023



What Is Perfume Layering?

Layering perfume is a method of using different scents together to create a unique, personal scent. It involves applying different types of fragrances in specific ways to create a unique blend that adds depth and complexity to the overall fragrance. Commonly, the lighter perfume is layered first on clean skin, allowing it to dry before layering a second, heavier scent on top. The result is a unique blend that’s tailored to the wearer’s preferences. Layering can help create a more nuanced scent that lasts for hours and adds depth and complexity, making it a popular choice for those who like to customize and personalize their fragrances.


How to Layer Your Fragrance to Last Longer:

There’s nothing worse than spraying your favourite perfume in the morning only for scent to be gone by lunchtime. The length of time your fragrance lasts on your skin will increase with layering scents. When you use body care items with the same fragrance , layering your items will enable you to produce a longer-lasting scent.


Step 1: Take a shower using your favorite soap or shower gel.


Step 2: While the skin is still damp, apply a lightly scented body oil or body cream. Applying the body oil or body cream closer to your skin, creates a protective layer and will help hold your scent.


Step 3: Now it's time to spritz or spray your favorite perfume. Spray freely on your body, or on pulsating points. Also, using a fragranced powder a finishing touch will further lock in the scent.


Apply To Your Pulse Points

Your pulse points are the greatest areas to apply scent layers, it will help you get more use out of your preferred perfume. Pulse points are locations on the body where veins are close to the skin's surface; the heat released from these regions promotes the fast fragrance development. Try spraying your favorite scent on one of the areas below for best results:

  • Wrists
