Encens adds a layer of smouldering incense that brings a mood of bohemian mystery to any perfume composition. Can be work on its own as a stand alone perfume or used as a room scent for those who can't burn incense - e.g. dorm dwellers, asthma sufferers, etc.
Best layered under: Spices, medium and dark ambers, vanillas, leathers, woods, fruits, robust florals, and anything with strong patchouli
Best for fixing: Perfumes that are too spring-summery; boring perfumes; overpowering patchoulis or florals
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.
