Layering spices

BeckyAndTheBeanstock | Feb 13, 2008 08:57 AM

Does anyone know anything about "layering spices" to get base notes, middle notes and top notes? Much like perfume, I suppose. I've heard/read bits and pieces about this, and it's something I sort of do instinctively, but I'm wondering if there is any formal thought on the method? Or tips for knowing which spices function in which position, and on combining flavors?
