body’s natural chemistry. Whether you’re a perfume connoisseur or a complete novice,

this guide will help you create a signature scent that’s unique to you.


  • WHAT IS FRAGRANCE LAYERING?

    Fragrance layering is the art of combining many perfumes at the same time. It is in the Middle-East where fragrance layering is most celebrated. A time-honoured tradition that hails as far back as 3,000 BC, layering today is a simple, playful way to mix and match scents. Across the modern Middle East, women and men approach fragrance ritualistically and they blend multiple EssencesFragrances and Spritzes for a heady and revolutionary effect.

  • WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF

    LAYERING FRAGRANCES?

    The benefit of layering fragrances is you can create something truly unique to you.

    If you’re looking to design a perfume that really hits your sweet spot, layer two or three together to create an individual result. And what’s more fun than creating a bespoke scent! Feel empowered and enjoy the freedom of mixing, matching and layering fragrances.

  • WHAT IS AN ESSENCE?

    “The Essences are a concentrated form of scent, designed for someone that is looking for something special, rich and opulent. They are alcohol-free and a typical “skin-scent”, so only those close to you will really share the scent. They are less diffusive and very long-lasting.”

    Roger Schmid, Fragrance Expert


    An Essence is a luxurious and powerful fragrance. It’s good to begin layering with an Essence because their simple blend of notes will compliment more complicated scents. For a sensorial experience dab a drop or two of the sumptuous scent onto the neck and pulse points for long-lasting effect.

  • WHAT IS A FRAGRANCE?

    “The Fragrances are more in line with the modern-oriental, finished perfumes that combine the western eau de toilette with an “oriental” twist. Use on your favourite pulse point for a long-lasting effect.”

    Roger Schmid, Fragrance Expert


    A fragrance is a long-lasting scent. Sophisticated by design, the Scents of Life Fragrances offer a touch of elegance. Start your day with a spray and combine with an Essence or a Spritz to discover a unique natural partnership.

  • WHAT IS A SPRITZ?

    “The spritzes are the lightest scent category. They will give you a quick booster and refresh your fragrance. You can spray them on your clothes and have fun with them by spraying the scent as if there were a cloud around your head.”

    Roger Schmid, Fragrance Expert


    A Spritz is perfect for refreshing your scent on-the-go. They’re ideal for topping up your scent as the day wears on and our Scents of Life Spritz range is easy and fun play with. Crafted from an array of notes, a quick spray will instantly lift your day and revitalise your scent.

  • HOW TO LAYER FRAGRANCE

    Some say the key to layering fragrances is staying within the same scent family. So, you could choose

    between woody, floral, gourmand, oriental, floriental and more. Citrus, vanilla and musk notes combine

    well with most other notes making them great to play with.

  • SOMETHING FLORAL

    Elegant, feminine and often romantic, floral fragrances are a perennial favourite. The minty notes in the Rose and Cedarwood Essence mix effortlessly with the musk and rose in the Red Fixation Fragrance. Finish the effect with a spray of the rose, jasmine and cedarwood Say Yes! Spritz.

  • SOMETHING WARM

    For a deep, musky effect with a hint of vanilla begin with the rich Musk and Mandarin Essence. Add the floriental Gold Addiction Fragrance for its ylang ylang notes and top up throughout the day with the strawberry, jasmine and musk gourmand Sweet Love spritz.


  • SOMETHING VELVETY

    With notes of amber, the Bergamot & Patchouli Essence offers an aromatic scent. For a touch of the oriental, you could layer the velvety Amber Wonder Fragrance at the pulse points and refresh the scent throughout the day with the woody vanilla, orchid and sandalwood Charm Me spritz.
