The Lowdown on Layering

You asked, we’re delivering! From where to start to the dos and don’ts, we’ve got the answers to all your frequently asked questions about fragrance layering. 

What is layering? 

Put simply, layering is the art of combining two or more fragrances to create your own personalized scent.

Do I need to spray one scent exactly on top of the other?

Not necessarily! For example, you could apply one fragrance to your right wrist and another to your left wrist to enjoy both at the same time.

How do I start layering?

Anchor your creations by spritzing heavier scents (like those with musky, woody, and earthy notes) first. Then add lighter ones, like those that are citrus or floral forward! This will help preserve the delicate top notes. 

How many scents can I layer together?

We recommend trying two at first and working your way up to three when you’re feeling confident in your layering skills.

Which CLEAN collections can I layer?

Our perfumers have done the work for you with CLEAN RESERVE Avant Garden but CLEAN CLASSIC and CLEAN RESERVE were designed with experimentation in mind! You’ll get the best results by layering two or more scents that are within the same collection. 

Are there any scents that don’t go together?

That’s a matter of personal preference! Enjoy a little risk-free experimentation by spritzing fragrances on a piece of paper before applying them to your skin.
