The Best Fragrance Layering Combinations With Swiss Arabian Perfumes
Create your signature scent with these perfect scent pairings
Just like you layer your outfits, perfumes can also be layered to add a unique dimension to your personality. Although picking a favourite fragrance is a highly personalised process, the art of layering can help you develop a fragrance that’s exceptionally your own – whether it is for a specific mood, event or day.
While some may be attracted to floral and fruity smelling perfumes, woody and aromatic are preferred scents for many. This is where the art of fragrance layering comes in.
Fragrance layering is a technique which allows you to mix two or more scents together to create an entirely new smell that is uniquely your own. When it comes to layering, there is no right or wrong, however it’s best to avoid combining heavy scents as that could be overwhelming. A good first step is to start with the heaviest scent that you love and test out a lighter contrasting scent on top of it so that it doesn’t overshadow the previous scent.
Here are the top five fragrance combinations to try out with Swiss Arabian:
The perfect combination for a dreamy, floral scent that lasts all day long. Start with the Musk Malaki perfume oil and gently tap it into your pulse points such as on your wrist, behind your ears, etc. Wait for a few minutes and then spray the Musk 01 perfume over this. Add a final touch of Dukhoon Al Naseem for an additional trail of fragrance and watch the exquisite aroma surround your day.
A great blend for a date night or when you want to win over the board room, this is an irresistible combination that’s rich, decadent and magnetic all at once. On one side you have the intoxicating musk scent designed to warm you up on a chilly evening and on the other, an ambry, aromatic, woody scent that’s so addictive that it will stay with you long after your perfect moments are locked in your memory.
Perfect as a unisex perfume that commands attention.
A great way to revamp a nighttime scent, this is a fresh and dreamy combination that is subtle and perfect for daytime use. Start with a heavier perfume and then layer it with a scent that is lighter and fresher with notes of floral or sparkling fruits.
Perfect for a weekend brunch with friends.
A scent that is uniquely alluring, this combination is perfect for those that enjoy a rich, lavish fragrance. Luxuriate in the oud scented breezes of the Bakhoor Al Karam, developed with precious ingredients of saffron, musk and rose petals. Burn the bakhoor and put it near your clothes or around your hair for the scent to get absorbed while applying Swiss Arabian’s Secret Oud oil. Finish it with a spray of Rose 01 that is created with an invigorating blend of bergamot, sweet pink pepper berries, vanilla and sensual musk for that perfect whiff of floral fantasy.
Perfect to transport you to a mythical garden fit for a Goddess.
Remember, layering is all about trial and error. Keep experimenting to master the art and find your own favourite scent that is truly yours. One of the simplest ways to creating a bespoke single base perfume is by sticking to perfumes from similar families such as woody, intense, floral, oriental, citrus, etc. So, if you’re a lover of fragrances: combine Swiss Arabian’s Oud Malaki oil with Oud 01 perfume, for a musky floral aroma try combining our Rose Malaki oil with Musk 01 perfume.
