Apparently, “layering” your scents is a thing. But don’t just go about it willy-nilly – there’s a science to it.
For instance, orange and vanilla. This Atelier Cologne layering duo has Orange Sanguine (“a zesty and energizing burst of crushed ripe fruit”) and Vanille Insensée (“an electrical current runs through the subtle sweetness of vanilla, jasmine and fresh lime to bond with rich oak moss, woods and spicy coriander”). According to Sephora (the French-made cologne set retails there for $35), when these two scents are worn together, “the complex bitter orange is balanced by sweet and creamy vanilla for a truly unique fragrance.”
