Unisex fragrances you’ll both love

Diptyque Do Son Eau de Parfum, £140 for 75ml

This luxury French perfumery house never disappoints in scent or packaging. This new fragrance is a concoction of tuberose, orange leaves, musk, and pink peppercorn, which is spicy, warm, and sensual without being overtly feminine or masculine. It’s a clever and unique mix of spices and florals that somehow work. And this new limited-edition bottle makes for a perfect gift that you can both enjoy together. Here are some more French toiletries you can steal from him.

Guerlain Frenchy Lavande Eau de Parfum, £290 for 100ml

A woody interpretation of lavender, this typically French scent is packed with zesty citrus notes of verbena accentuated by bergamot, and lemon that bring a fresh and modern take on the lavender that we know. The result? An elegant and chic fragrance that smells as good on men as it does on women.

L’Eau d’Issey Pour Homme, £68 for 50ml

The latest fragrance to join the iconic Issey family is a crisp and sensual woody scent that is packed with pungent ginger and clary sage to breathe new life into the typical woody smells of yesteryear. With its slick wooden bottle top and understated yet chic packaging, this is a winner for you, your partner, and the bathroom shelf!

Bvlgari Le Gemme Azaran Eau de Parfum – £268 for 100ml

Imagine all the notes you expect to find in a strong men’s fragrance – cedarwood, leather, bergamot and then add in the unique and rare ingredient, saffron (that also comes with a hefty price tag). This fine concoction is intense without being overwhelming and has an earthy, woody finish that reminds us of an old-school gentlemen’s club

The Nue Co. Forest Lungs Fragrance, £85 for 50ml

Any fragrance that is designed to relieve stress and lift spirits, has our vote! This fragrance/supplement is crafted using patented technology inspired by thalassotherapy, imitating the calming effects of water. With spicy top notes of cardamom, black pepper, seaweed and bergamot and softer greener notes of clary sage, rose absolute, fir balsam, this scent is completely genderless. Though we suggest hiding the bottle from your partner as spritzing this grounding scent becomes addictive, trust us! If you’re the outdoorsy type, the sister fragrance Forest Lungs may be more your thing! Here are a few more of our woody fragrances. 

Byredo Mojave Ghost Eau de Parfum, £130 for 50ml

A spritz of this and you’ll be ready to lure your valentine in no time. This woody and aromatic composition are created with warm notes of sandalwood, musk, amber, and cedarwood plus florals like violet and magnolia, making this the most mesmerising and sensual scent that will attract both sexes (win, win!) Eye-wateringly expensive, but a purchase you won’t regret.

Kiehl’s Original Musk Eau de Toilette Spray, £45 for 50ml

This best-selling unisex fragrance is almost impossible to keep on shelves. Based on the unique and extremely popular blend of Kiehl’s Original Musk Oil essence, this is a creamy, citrus scent combined with a warm mixture of tonka bean and white patchouli that brings a sense of comfort. Expect to be stopped in your tracks and questioned about what you’re wearing.

Jo Malone Myrrh & Tonka, £106 for 50ml

Described by its creator, master perfumer, Mathilde Bijaoui as having “an atmosphere of addiction and carnal richness that appeals to both men and women,” this cologne is a modern unisex scent like no other. Sensuous and captivating to both men and women alike, the spicy undertone will fast become addictive. It compliments many notes, making it a great choice if you enjoy layering your fragrances for a scent that’s more personalised.

Tom Ford Neroli Portofino EDP, £195 for 50ml

Virtually escape with your loved one to the Italian Riviera with this crisp, fresh, vibrant fragrance that bottles up a teeny bit of Portofino with all the class and style you expect from Ford. Tunisian neroli, Italian bergamot, and Sicilian lemon bring juicy drama that transports you to sunnier climes. A great choice for date night.

Le Labo Santal 33 Eau de Parfum, from £65 for 15ml

This cult favourite has created a fragrance frenzy for the last 11 years when unisex scents were almost unheard of. It has a toxic yet not an overtly overwhelming mix of strong spicy, leathery and musk notes, almost like you’ve stepped foot into a Gentlemen’s Club, mixed with subtle tones of soft feminine notes such as violet and iris. It’s a very unobtrusive smell that pleasantly lingers all day long. But be warned, it has the power of attraction.

Calvin Klein CK One, £29.99 for 100ml

Klein was pioneering unisex fragrance before it was even a thing. Who didn’t own a bottle, circa 1994? This super-light refreshing cocktail of bergamot, cardamom, fresh pineapple, papaya, jasmine, violet, rose, nutmeg, and musk, continues to be a best-seller that appeals to both sexes without breaking the bank. We predict this will outlive us all and be on the shelves forever!

Bamford Woodland Moss, £95 for 50ml

Better known for its organic spa range and beautiful aromatherapy blends, Bamford has cleverly bottled up the scent of the English countryside. The smell of wellies squelching in the mud amongst earthy leaves and dirt (in a good way!) balanced with patchouli and aromatic notes of sage, angelica and rose. Warm and intimate, (just how you want your valentine) this is one to spray to keep you both grounded, connected, and appreciative of one another.

Aesop Tacit Eau de Parfum, £100 for 50ml

Most of us associate Aesop with posh hotel toiletries, yet their scents are often undeservingly overlooked. However, when it comes to a one-size-fits-all fragrance, the minimalist bottle and classic notes will keep you, and your partner, coming back for more. This woody-based smell is aromatic heaven for those who like rich powerful blends while the citrus undertones play down the final aroma creating the perfect harmony. A couple’s dream.
