Words: Elena Andreou
Working towards a more gender-neutral nation is big news right now. And it has got us thinking about our corner of the universe – the world of fragrance. While we can help you find dedicated scents for him and her, there’s no reason to stay in your lane. Discover the top unisex perfumes and scents that are loved by all…
1. CK ONE, Calvin Klein
Blurring the lines between feminine and masculine notes since 1994, CK One is cited as THE original unisex scent. With an evocative marketing campaign at the helm, this refreshing spritz is proof that gender stereotypes is soooo nineties. It’s time to fall in love with an old favourite...
2. Infusion d'Iris, Prada
If you always go for clean, cotton-inspired or linen scents – not just in your fragrance collection but for things like detergents, deodorants and shower gel – then you’ll love this scent from Prada. Deliberately formulated to ‘resist feminine stereotypes’ this is loved by those who prefer uncomplicated, timeless scents.
3. Uomo, Valentino
Zesty with a sprinkling of spice, Uomo by Valentino is a low-key unisex scent despite its name which literally translates to ‘man’. If you love sharper notes such as bergamot, coffee and hazelnut, then this will seduce your senses. Added bonus – it looks great on the gram in a #shelfie thanks to its whisky decanter-inspired bottle.
4. Black Orchid, Tom Ford
Proof that sugar and spice and all things nice is not just what little girls are made of, Black Orchid appeals to the sensuality of both sexes. Packed with powerful notes of bergamot (top), spice (heart) and chocolate (base), it’s sure to make a statement.
5. Aqva Marine, Bvlgari
Refreshing and rejuvenating, Bvlgari’s Aqva Marine fragrance is one that both men and women request in our stores. Despite being on the men’s shelf, it packs a fruity punch (featuring notes of pine needle, rosemary flower and grapefruit) that’s perfect for wearing day to day.
