Have you ever wondered why retailers bothered separating perfumes and colognes? Does it even matter if you were to have sprayed on perfumes meant for women? Can someone else tell if a scent is from a perfume or cologne bottle?
I believe that at the end of the day, you spray on a scent that you like best, one that best represents your personality and suits the occasion that you are going to, irrespective of whether you are male or female. This brings us to the topic of unisex fragrances. When they are meant for both man and woman, the smell is somewhat androgynous, which I absolutely love. They are never too feminine or too sweet, which to me is incredibly sexy. Here are my favourite unisex perfumes.
Calvin Klein’s Summer One is the hottest scent of the summer with an exotic blend of tangerine, lemon, water fern, sea breeze, melon, cedar and rhubarb makes this scent perfect for both men and women.
My second favourite perfume is Forest Rain by Kiehls. Although Kiehls is not one of your major perfume producers, and is better known for their organic skincare products, this particular fragrance which they have created smells amazing. It is extremely woodsy, and you can tell just by its name that it will smell natural and fresh, with undertones of musk giving it its sexy appeal.
Dolce and Gabbana’s 18 La Lune is another of my favourite. The perfume bottle may seem slightly feminine with its pink tinge, and its floral top notes don’t help either. However, its base notes of new leather, complemented with fresh scents of apple and sandalwood gives it its slightly masculine edge. You will not be disappointed even if you are a guy.
CK One is another of Calvin Klein’s range of unisex perfumes. This scent has been around for a long time, and was the original unisex perfume created. However, it’s combination of notes of violet with pineapple, bergamot with jasmine, nutmeg with papaya, and base notes of amber and musk makes it ideal for both men and women. It is also voted one of the best and sexiest colognes for men of 2017.
And if you’re slightly more adventurous, try Auric Blends by Egyption Goddess. The name may not sound very unisex, but it’s musky and evocative scent channels latter day Egypt, and should attract both men and women.
Everyone by Lamis is another exciting unisex perfume which is incredibly affordable. It consists of blends of pineapple to give it that little bite of sweetness, bergamot and green tea to give it that light and refreshing lasting smell.
Last but not least, Calvin Klein’s Be. This bottle definitely looks more masculine that feminine, with that dark matte packaging. I absolutely adore this scent as it’s a masculine scent with an oriental feminine twist blending notes of musk and mandarin. To me, this is the ultimate sexy scent!
Call it whatever you want, perfumes or colognes, who cares!
