There are few things in life that can make you feel as good as a quick spritz of your favourite fragrance. And while Chanel #5 (or any French perfume for that matter) will always have a special place in our hearts and beauty cabinet, there’s a new trend in town that’s making a splash: unisex scents.
Androgyny has become the new cool in fashion, with Cara Delevigne starring in DKNY’s menswear campaign and transgender model Adreja Pejic ruling every runway she steps foot on. So it makes perfect sense that the fragrance world would quickly follow in fashion’s footsteps. The trend has opened up a whole world of sensuous smokey, spicy and leather driven scents just waiting for us to spritz ourselves in.
We’ve picked our 10 favourite unisex scents to indulge in – or better yet, share with your significant other!
What: COMME des GARCONS Parfum Black
One reviewer described this scent as like “walking in a woody forest with a chai latte” – what’s not to love about that!? Rich, woodsy, warm and deliciously spicy, rumour has it that this unisex fragrance sold out underground before it was even first released in 2009. Perfect for wearing in the cooler months, when warm scents are welcoming and inviting, this is one frangrance you simply have to try.
