Unisex fragrances are on the rise as the gender lines in the world of beauty and beyond are becoming blurred. Perfume is a truly personal thing, and we’re so over the idea that woody scents should be worn by men and sweet gourmand fragrances reserved for women.
This Christmas, scents for him and her are trending, so let’s throw out the rule book and take a peek at four unisex perfumes that are well worth smelling, wearing and sharing (well, you don’t have to share)...
THE PERFUME EDIT CITRUS FRESCO
Launched earlier his year, The Perfume Edit’s zesty and fresh Citrus Fresco is bright and candied, thanks to top notes of sweet lemon and fruits. Left to breathe on the skin, aromas of florals, herbs and woods start to develop, lingering intoxicatingly from day to night. And there’s more: this unisex perfume is vegan and cruelty-free, and the packaging is 100% recyclable.
KIERIN NYC SANTAL SKY
More women than ever are looking to the sultry aroma of woody scents, which traditionally have been seen as ‘masculine’. Santal Sky blends sweet saffron, warm and creamy cardamom and sandalwood with grassy vetiver for a rich unisex perfume that’s earthy and intimate. Expect lots of ‘What perfume are you wearing?’ from everyone who comes near.
GUCCI MEMOIRE D'UNE ODEUR
Harry Styles is the face of this unisex perfume. Need we say more? Gucci’s latest scent is a free-spirited concoction that opens with chamomile and refreshing orange, then mellows down through fields of jasmine and musk, followed by vanilla, cedar wood and sandalwood. As unisex fragrances go, this is a winner, with its beautifully crafted green and gold bottle.
TOM FORD BLACK ORCHID
Want something heady? Tom Ford’s iconic Black Orchid is not for the faint-hearted. Its rich, dark fragrance combines spicy, fruity and sweet notes for an intoxicating scent. A modern classic and one for nights out, this powerful unisex perfume lingers on its spicy and sweet notes of patchouli and incense, with chocolate, amber and vanilla.
