Combining Fragrances

Did you ever wonder if combining fragrances is a good, bad, or really bad idea? We did. So of course we asked friend of the site T. Strong aka StyleMayvin.

Unrefinery: "T, is it ever OK to wear two fragrances at once, a lot of one and a little of another? For example: you've got Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille, which is a complex blend of pipe tobacco, vanilla, cocoa and spices. Great fragrance, but it'd be nice if it had just a little more tobacco in the mix. And then there's this stuff called Feuilles de Tabac, which as its name suggests is almost pure tobacco leaf with just a tiny hint of spice. You see where we're going with this."

T. Strong: "I do! Meanwhile the mix sounds delish! I say write your own rules on this one and when the envious ones get a whiff and want to know your secret, just tell 'em 'Oh, it's just one of my special blends.'"

There you have it. She always smells nice, so we're going to take her word for it.
