The best unisex fragrances to gift and share
There’s a very logical reason behind gifting fragrances – smells are processed in the same part of the brain as attraction and emotion. Scents are synonymous with love, have the power to unlock memories and can completely change the way we are feeling.
But do you stick with a scent they already love or choose something new and exciting? If trying something new, you may want to consider giving your loved one a unisex fragrance.
With a more neutral scent profile than traditional perfumes and colognes, gender neutral fragrances are suitable for a wide range of occasions. They have the unique ability to blend with almost any style and the best part is if you also love the scent, you can steal some for yourself!
From cult favourites to new scents, here are our picks for the 8 best unisex fragrances to gift and share.
1. Le Labo: Another 13 EDP
Available at Mecca for $369 (50ml)
This clean, fresh fragrance is easy to wear but hard to forget. With notes of ambroxan, jasmine, moss and ambrette seeds absolute, it’s both unique and hypnotising. Super versatile, this scent is designed to last throughout the day and is suited to any occasion.
2. Maison Margiela: REPLICA Jazz Club EDT
Available at Mecca for $215 (100ml)
Subtly masculine with a feminine twist, this intoxicating scent is woody, yet sweet, and embodies the ambiance of a Brooklyn jazz club – think leather armchairs, heady cocktails and cigars. With notes of pink pepper, primofiore lemon, neroli oil, rum absolute, clary sage oil, java vetiver oil, tobacco leaf absolute, vanilla beam and styrax resin, it’s the perfect mix of spicy and smooth.
3. The Body Shop: Full Orange Blossom Eau de Parfum
Available at The Body Shop for $79 (75ml)
Part of The Body Shop’s new ‘Full Flowers’ collection, this fresh and citrusy fragrance is inspired by the whole flower, including both the male and female parts. At its heart is the precious orange blossom absolute, extracted from hand-picked orange flower buds in the Nile region, resulting in a suave and aromatic scent. With notes of petals, green leaves, woody stems, juicy fruits, and sweet resin, it’s designed to evolve as the day passes.
4. Diptyque: Orphéon EDP
Available at Mecca for $274 (75ml)
A woody scent inspired by the trailing perfumes of the men and women who frequented the Orphéon, an iconic late-night bar in the Saint-Germain quarter of Paris in the 60s. A blended mix of juniper berries, tonka beans, cedarwood and jasmine, this warm fragrance captures the comforting scent of burnished wood, enveloping curls of tobacco and the aroma of zesty cocktails.
5. Astier de Villatte: Elixir du Docteur Flair
Available at Sorry Thanks I Love You for $260 (150ml)
Conceived more as a potion than a perfume, this invigorating scent blends notes of verbena, bergamot, orange, petit grain, basil, rosemary, neroli and musks. Inspired by the ancient wild medicinal herbs and plants of Swedish woods, this fragrance is a wintry feast of clove and wormwood.
6. Ellis Brooklyn: Myth Eau De Parfum
Available at Mecca for $173 (50ml)
Chic and inviting, this instantly recognisable scent perfectly balances its power with subtlety. With notes of bergamot, ambrette, cassis, orchid, lotus, jasmine, patchouli, musk and cedar, it’s both intoxicating and undeniably fresh.
7. COMME des GARÇONS: Copper Eau de Parfum
Available at Sorry Thanks I Love You for $290 (100ml)
This deeply green scent transforms contradictions into compatibility. Organically formed and industrially made, it evolves from a fiercely metallic opening of galbanum, Peruvian peppercorns, and ginger to a dry down of vanilla, amber and myrrh. A truly unique synthesisation of metal and natural notes.
8. Nasomatto: Baraonda
Available at Sorry Thanks I Love You for $265 (30ml)
Aptly named Baraonda, the Italian word for chaos and commotion, this scent is a boozy libation of whisky, brandy, rose and burnt honey. Raw and powerful yet subtle and refined, this fragrance has an innate soft intensity that suits any occasion.
