I don't think I've ever worn more than 4 torso layers (5 if you include my vest), and I've been out in -30C; down to about -20C I usually go with a fairly normal (or at least I think it's fairly normal) t-shirt + jumper + standard department store issue winter coat. I certainly wasn't thinking of as many as half a dozen layers when I suggested layering! Perhaps I should have explicitly mentioned layering socks, trousers, and gloves – people tend to remember to insulate their torsos but forget that the rest of their body needs just as much attention.
The weather in Rovaniemi is looking pretty mild at the moment anyway – warm enough there for me to be out in a t-shirt under the right circumstances. ;)
