This thread is for everyone to share their favorite blends of Miss Angela's amazing works!

In another thread, Miss Angela had said that she had on Foxcroft and Manor... I tried it and I can't seem to get my wrist out from under my nose!! It is sooo good! I wish I could explain what I smell everytime I inhale... but, I fear that my description wouldn't do it due justice! It's like your standing on the Fall/Winter-y grounds of a large Manorhouse juuust outside the building... like on a side yard, or something.

Anyone else have a fave scent combo?

Manor and Foxcroft are a favorite combo of mine to! A lot of Manor with just a touch of Foxcroft!

I'm going to be interested to see how some of the new winter scents layer. I think Flintlock will be good for layering with some of the sweeter scents!

Manor is hands down the best layering scent! Very Happy I've tried a few combos I like a lot. Here they are:

1. I tried Night Star and Manor today. Love it! Manor seems to warm NS up a bit on my skin.

2. Manor and Lace Draped Spectre is lovely, too.

3. Cenobite and Roasted Chestnuts & Marshmallow is an awesome foody combo.

Some combinations I have tried recently and liked are:

1. Shoikan Grove and Spellbound Woods (Used the SG perfume oil and the SW glace).
2. Flintlock and Shoikan Grove.
3. Patchouli Sweet Wood and Spellbound Woods

Very interested to try the recommendation of Manor and Night Star!

I love Cenobite with Manor, one of my favorite combos. Everything goes with Cenobite very well for me.

Need to try Manor and Lace Draped Spectre, sounds divine!

I haven't done a lot of layering/combining, but one that I really love (and I posted it somewhere else) is:

OLD CLOSETED HIPPIE- Old Cedar Magus & Patchouli

I've got to agree that Manor is wonderful for layering. I love Manor with Foxcroft, too.
I tried Outpost with Manor, and it's quite lovely! And I currently have on Outpost with Spellbound Woods.
Definitely going to try Night Star and Manor next!

I'll report back with my findings!

AA, I highly recommend that combo - it's beautiful, and I'm sure you'll get tons of compliments on it!

Last night, I showered with OCM whipped soap, then put on Thornwood Thicket ganache, and finished with Black Mallow perfume. There were a lot of scents goin' on, but I smelled delicious!

I've also layered Manor with Black Mallow, with great results. Angela's vanilla blends are TDF!

I have a 10-pack perfume sampler coming to me in the order I placed yesterday, so I'm sure I'll have fun trying out different scent combos!

I did get several compliments! Right now, as I'm going Sniffy-sniffy to my wrist, I can smell an incense that I used to burn back east. *Le sigh* I love it!

Awesome, AA! Yes, that incense note in there just blends so well with the rest of the notes. In fact, I think I'm going to wear that combo tomorrow to work. It'll be my first day back from vacation, so I think I'll need a 'pick-me-up' scent!

1/2 jar of Blood Bathory Salts and 1 Lush Blackberry Ballistic= TRUE BLOOD!


Try it and you'll understand why it got its name! Smile

My favorite combo is Patchouli Sweet Wood and Amber: woodsy sweet goodness.

Foxcroft + Cellar

the perfect, perfect scent for a rainy autumn day in the Appalachian mountains, with the leaves just turning golden and a cool breeze coming through the windows. <3

Smoky Mountain Mallow + Cafe Mallowmel
fireside coffee with toasted marshmallows, cozy and smoky and sweet.

Jack and the Devil + High Noon
both of these are kind of "eh" for me on their own; I want to love them, but something just falls flat for me, and they both turn against me on the long dry-down - HN goes powdery, and Jack gets too close to straight patchouli. together, however, these two shine! they complement each other perfectly on the dry-down and wear beautifully all the way to the end.

I've been wearing Manor and Kitchen together lately. I knew the Manor Collection was designed to layer well with the original Manor, but I hadn't really tried them together until recently. The delicious baked foodie notes in Kitchen are really enriched and made more elegant and mysterious with the dusty, sweet woodsiness of Manor. Such a beautiful combo!

Manor + Nightgown is so lovely, very feminine without being cloying or overpoweringly flowery.

Witch's Cottage + Cellar

Kitchen + Pumpkin Spice Latte, all warmth and comfort

Someone posted in the Foxcroft review thread about layering Foxcroft with Cellar. Brilliant!

I really enjoy combining Foxcroft and Hand of Darkness especially on rainier days.
 Such an aquatic aroma, they really do pair well together.

Old Havana + Hand of Darkness, perfectly evocative of the Captain's cabin of a pirate vessel during stormy seas, all rich tobacco, exotic smoke, pine tar and sea spray. Both of these are on my wishlist already! Smile

Oh! Old Havana is my favorite scent recently. I will definitely try these together. I bet Old Havana tames the Hand of Darkness. I know that one can smell quite literal on its own on initial application!
