Rural Glamour: Layering? Is it necessary?

Tuesday, March 10, 2009

I was thinking about layering fragrances as a sprayed my new Halle fragrance on for like the tenth time since I received it....
I thought to myself "Should I get the lotion to match when it comes out at Kohl's" "Nah, the scent is holding up just fine." So I asked Fashion Boy (also known by a new name...) "The Tattoo Kang" (self-explanatory)if I should buy the matching lotion. I snickered as watched him ACTUALLY think about it. Then he said,"If the scent is enough you don't need the matching lotion". Point for Fashion Boy...I mean The Tattoo Kang.:)
I have several lotions as you can see here with the coordinating scent. Sometimes I just wear the lotion and totally forget to put on the scent. Then I just do the scent, no lotion. depending on the scent, either or is just right...never both on me...So this "layering" it necessary and do you do it?
Another thing that crossed my mind...I read in, I think, January Bazaar 2009 SJP( Sarah Jessica Parker FOR THOSE WHO DON'T KNOW) mentioned that she spritzes her daily scent three, four times daily....

I layer, especially when I know I am going to have a long day/night I think it helps the scent to last longer. For some perfumes, I don't like how the lotion smells, its like some of the ingredients in the lotion compete with the scent.
I also do like SJP and apply more than once in the day. I feel like I always need to smell my perfume on me.

I totally agree with you on the need to smell my perfume on me...Thanks for the comment MsBenz!
