Our cacao layering note is very dark (but not quite bitter), rich chocolate. It will both sweeten and darken anything with which it's layered. It makes a luscious standalone scent for chocolate/gourmand lovers.
Best layered over: Berries, woods, patchoulis, resins, some incenses (experiment), vanillas, spices, patchoulis, gourmands, and medium to dark ambers
Best for fixing: Perfumes that are too dry, herbal, or bitter. Gourmands or berry perfumes that need 'darkening.'
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.
