In many instances, you might discover that the unisex fragrance you favor has a hint of a masculine tinge at first sniff. The reasoning is largely simple — women are generally more inclined to break out of their comfort zones and spray on, say, their husband’s cologne as an experiment. Men may not be quite so likely to wear their wives’ perfumes just because the mood strikes. Wearing a gender-blind scent gives us all the comfort to wear something that is more universally appealing. Many brands are embracing this concept with open arms, creating natural or organic perfumes whose focus is not so much on who they are for, but what they contain and how those healthy ingredients benefit the wearer and make them feel.
Finally, think about how those preconceived notions were actually established. Ultimately, the scent isn’t about men and women, but personality. It’s important to focus on the scents that make your spirit soar and bring a smile to your face. The beauty of unisex fragrances is that they don’t focus specifically on your gender, but on the nuances and traits that make you so uniquely you.
