what is fragrance layering?

fragrance layering combines several scented products to intensify our favorite fragrance, express our mood, or create our unique scent. while not a new concept in beauty, there are factors and formulations to consider; layering your fragrance doesn't have to mean spraying two eau de parfums on top of one another. instead, we can use different products to find our perfect fragrance blend. that's our approach at philosophy; it should be as easy and customizable as 1-2-3.

the perfect base

start your fragrance layering journey with a scented shower gel. nourishing, cleansing, and conditioning, our shower gels hydrate from head to toe, leaving behind a soft trail of the scent you'll build off. start your fragrance layering journey with a scented shower gel. nourishing, cleansing, and conditioning, our shower gels hydrate from head to toe, leaving behind a soft trail of the scent you'll build off.

second up

hydrate your skin while you lock in your preferred scent with one of our firming body emulsions, body crèmes, or luminous body oils. bonus: If your skin is damp post-shower—hydrated skin allows your fragrance to adhere to your skin better.

top it off

to fully intensify or customize your fragrance layers, cap it off with a spritz of perfume on your pulse points (think wrists, crook of the elbow, behind your ears, etc.). the warmth from your body helps the fragrance to develop throughout the day, revealing the top, heart, and base notes of your scent layering. for an extra flourish, consider a spray on the ends of your hair, too (consider our softly scented luminous body oils for this!).
