12 Unisex Scents That Are Changing The Fragrance Game

Add one of these to your spritz rotation.

When it comes to perfumes, everyone has their favourite. That one signature scent they’ve come to be known by, that they keep coming back to time and time again. That being said, it doesn’t mean there’s never any room for new fragrances, especially ones that are a little outside the box. 

Unisex fragrances are having a major moment right now, and it’s not hard to see why.  These scents are versatile, unique and universally flattering, so what’s not to love? Smoky, spicy, leathery, fresh fragrances have the ability to compliment all genders, making them a great option for anyone looking for something a little different. 


Luckily for us, quite a few of our favourite fragrance brands have already jumped aboard the unisex train. We’ve also discovered a few new brands that specialise in unisex scents, and it’s safe to say we’re obsessed.
