Spritz spritz! Find the perfect fragrance this spring

As we tick into September and the season of spring, spritzing on a fresh new scent just feels right. Florals are without a doubt the unofficial fragrance of the new season, but a common misconception is that they’re made just for women.

Trending this season in the way of scents is borrowing scents from across the gender spectrum. Now’s the perfect time to embrace simplicity, authenticity and push the boundaries of traditional feminine versus masculine in the fragrance department.

Whether you make your mark as alluringly bold or sweetly subtle, there truly is a scent for everybody. For men and women alike, a well-matched scent worn with confidence can be a game-changer. Discover our pick of unisex fragrances that are must-haves for him and her.
