Our Ceylon layering note adds an interesting dimensionality and a distinct black tea note to scents. Can be work on its own as a stand alone perfume. The mild astringency will take down the sweetness of anything with berries. It is a nice compliment to a lot of non-aquatic florals and layers really well with woods.
Best layered over: Citrus, greens, berries, light florals, dry musks, spices
Best for fixing: Perfumes that are too linear, subtle, herbal, spicy, or uninteresting
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.
