Perfect for sharing with your bestie, other half or scent-stealing sibling, it’s no surprise unisex fragrances are in higher demand than ever before. Refusing to play within the traditional masculine or feminine scent profiles, these once rule-breaking scents are paving the way for a gender-neutral fragrance world where notes are chosen by the wearer and not the marketing gurus. We take a look at our top-rated unisex perfumes, to help you switch up our signature scent.
By the Fireplace by Maison Margiela
Have you ever been curled up by a crackling, cosy fireplace and wished you could bottle up that enveloping scent to enjoy whenever you fancied? Well, that’s exactly what Maison Margiela has done with their enchanting, wintery unisex fragrance By the Fireplace, which is part of their fascinating ‘Replica’ range formulated based on favourite memories. In By the Fireplace, the feeling of warmth and winter memories is evoked with notes of roasted chestnut and slow-smoked wood.
Neroli Portofino by Tom Ford
Inspired by the Mediterranean, but not as you know it, Tom Ford’s Neroli Portofino is a fresh take on Italian charm. With its bold hit of citrus, neroli and amber notes, it can carry you from day to night effortlessly – if you don’t mind being stopped all the time by nosy ‘what are you wearing?’ askers. The real question is, will you keep this scent top-secret?
CK One by Calvin Klein
Back in the nineties, this trailblazing scent hit the headlines for its saucy marketing campaign but surpassed fad-territory by serving up a spritz that embodied expression with every uplifting note. With its play of light lemon and papaya top notes, green tea remnants and deep, grounding base of amber, it’s still as refreshing (and as popular) today, loved by Gen Z and Baby Boomers alike
Tranquil by ME.
A fresh, green scent promising to help you find a pocket of peace and serenity in your day, Tranquil makes the perfect everyday go-to. Exclusively available on our virtual shelves and in-store, reach for this whenever you crave a spritz of calmness in your life.
Aqua Allegoria by Guerlain
Promising “the freshness of a Cologne and the hold of a Guerlain perfume”, the Aqua Allegoria collection is a celebration of individuality. With each scent designed as a stand-out solo artist as well as a harmonising backing singer to any of the other scents within the range, it’s perfect for layering according to your mood. Our favourite? Bergamote Calabria – a flawless execution of a fruit-focused fragrance with the right amount of zest.
Eau de Pamplemousse Rose by Hermes
Throwing together fruit with florals is always a good idea. But, Hermes takes it one step further by experimenting with the unexpected and creating a scent that’s loved by all. Introducing, Eau de Pamplemousse Rose. Clashing zingy grapefruit with a classic rose, the cologne creates a ‘bittersweet’ profile that hits all the right notes.
Black Orchid by Tom Ford
This one’s for the statement-makers. A heady blend of spice and not-your-average florals, it has the wow factor that leaves a lasting impression. Notorious for re-writing the fragrance rulebook, this scent from Tom Ford from the prestigious brand throws together notes of blackcurrant, bergamot, orchid amber and chocolate.
