Here’s one thing we know to be true (and we’re guessing you do, too): two is almost always better than one. Also, in many cases, more is better (the more the merrier; More! More! More!). What can we say, we’re maximalists! Especially in two areas. 1) Spending an evening in, wearing a robe with your cat(s) and drinking...uhh...tea and gossiping (making a buddy very necessary). And 2), layering fragrances.

As we recently discovered with the help of Jo Malone London, Harley Viera Newton, and her friend Yale Breslin (who happens to be the editor-in-chief of Industrie Magazine), layering, mixing, matching, and combining different colognes is the answer to finding that ever elusive signature scent. If you’re anything like Viera Newton and Breslin, a little experimentation is never a bad thing—if you know what you’re doing, of course. Press play, and discover the secret to layering scents and creating your very own bespoke fragrance (so fancy!).
