Our simple vanilla layering perfume combines elements of Tahitian Vanilla which has a marshmallowy and slightly fruity profile with Madagascar Vanilla's more woodier notes to create a beautifully alluring, comfortingly relaxing, sensual sweetness to almost any perfume composition. Can be worn on its own as a lovely standalone perfume (may need reapplication during the day or a fixative as vanilla notes without added chemical bases tend to fade).
Best layered over: Green elements, light florals, tea, musks, dry incense resins, ambers, gourmands, woods, patchouli
Best for fixing: Perfumes that are too dry, herbal, or bitter
Layering notes let you shift and alter your scents to match your mood or the seasons, to take advantage of subtle skin chemistry changes, or to dabble with the olfactory arts of niche perfumery. Layering notes are also an easy way to customize your favorite scents and make them uniquely and unforgettably yours.... or can help rekindle a romance with perfume you once loved but are getting a little bored with. The simplicity and uncomplicated linear qualities of single notes are distinctive in and of themselves for stand alone.
