Best Unisex Fragrances | Amazing Gender-Neutral Scents

So, you are interested in unisex fragrances but don’t particularly like all of those floral-fruity scents that you see dominating every perfume shelf? Or maybe you're not too keen on that typical aftershave scent, that you seem to smell absolutely everywhere? Well, do not despair. Whether you are a seasoned unisex fragrance connoisseur or a complete novice, all are welcome!

For the longest time, big fragrance houses have adhered to gender norms when it comes to perfume. Then, in 1994, Calvin Klein did something daring: they released the first genderless fragrance: CK One.

These days, there is more choice than ever when it comes to fragrances that can be worn by everyone. Whilst these scents are typically still more likely to be found within niche perfumery, brands (big and small) are starting to expand their offerings to include unisex fragrances.
