Unisex Fragrances – a Fit for Everyone
Independent perfumers are stepping out of the traditional parameters of the fragrance industry and creating gender-neutral scents for clientele. The androgynous trend is a topic worth exploring. How do you create a scent that won’t diminish sex appeal? What we have grown accustomed to - musk undertones marking masculinity and floral and fruit-infused scents for women - are no longer clear-cut. Unisex fragrances are now emerging with neutral scents worth experimenting with.
Before you excuse the idea of wearing the same scent as a man, take a whiff of a few. You may be surprised by the alluring aroma unisex perfume possess. From fresh, citrus and wood-based undertones, these scents are rising in demand and are attracting both men and women.
Mainstream culture has always defined what women and men want to smell like, but these stereotypes are far from innate. Calvin Klein’s CK One is a fragrance that breaks the clichés with a fresh summer scent. The aroma of a beach breeze intersects with a dash of grapefruit, pineapple and tangerine for a unisex fragrance that appeal to both genders.
Aqua Di Parma defines the balance between modernity and tradition. If you are after an earthy aroma, Intensa combines the scent of citrus and wood. Lemon, ginger and leather create a natural musk.
Miller Harris Citron is a fresh scent. The fragrance delivers a burst of citrus, highlighting the aroma of Jamaican lime, Spanish orange and Sicilian lemon. Cardamom and Moroccan cedar undertones add to the scent, perfect to wear if you are looking for a clean fragrance.
Floris Cefiro redefines gender-driven fragrances. Spicy notes of Nutmeg and Cardamom create a base, while floral Jasmine and crisp lemon punctuate the scent, all leading to a fresh finish, perfect for men and women.
With the interest in gender-neutral fragrances increasing, check out what the buzz is about with one of these scents.
