Dessert du Jour...Luscious Layers

I have touched upon a variety of topics during my first week of blogging, now I would like to offer up some fragrance tips that I hope you will find useful. One of the most frequent questions that I get asked by customers is: "How do I get my scent to last longer throughout the day?"

The trick is to do what we, in the 'business', like to call "Fragrance Layering". It is the art of layering your fragrance to get it to last longer, but not stronger throughout the day. Here are the 4 simple steps to scent-sational success:

1) Start with your scent in the Bath or Shower by using a cleanser such as our Body & Hair Icing, Bath Creme, or Soap Cake. Thoroughly wash like you normally do and towel dry when finished.

2) Apply your Body Moisturizer in the same scent over your entire body within about 5 minutes after cleansing so skin is not completely dry. This helps to lock in moisture, allows you to use less product, and makes distribution of the product much easier. We suggest using our Whipped Cream or Whipped Butter during this step.

3) Allow the Moisturizer to sink in for about 5-10 minutes and then apply the same scent in the form of Perfume. We recommend our Body & Hair Spritzer, Sweet Roll Perfume Oil, or Pure Extract Perfume. Mist/Roll liberally over your entire body/pulse points and allow to dry before getting dressed.

4) Keep the product you used in Step 4 with you to refresh your scent throughout the day and you will stay smelling sweet for hours instead of minutes!

Want to have some fun with Fragrance Layering? Looking to add a new dimension to your signature scent to create something unique? Why not try the same technique above, but using a variety of scents to come up with a scent all your own?

Try these combinations below, or come up with one of your own and share it with us!
