What is unisex perfume?
I have to admit it, I was not originally a fan of the unisex trend. The first time I walked into a unisex bathroom I received quite a shock. It was quite embarrassing actually. I feel kind of bad for the poor guy I noticed in my peripheral while touching up my lippie in the bathroom mirror. I sort of blew his head off. A fellow bathroom-goer has to politely inform me that the man was not, in fact a pervert, but that I was actually standing in a unisex bathroom. I quickly put my sunnies on and headed for the door…
But since the advent of unisex perfumes, my distaste for sharing with the opposite sex (I was never a fan of the ‘boyfriend’ look either) has started to turn. I’ve found myself not only tolerating, but embracing the idea of unisex. You see, a unisex fragrance means that I get more room on my dresser and that my husband can no longer use the excuse that he ‘forgot’ his cologne when we go on holiday because I always have mine on hand!
So, what is a unisex perfume? I hear you ask. Simply put, unisex perfumes are a hybrid breed of fragrances that can be worn by either sex. Where once there was simply a choice of buying either perfume for men or perfume for women, now you can buy for both – in the one bottle!
The way these fragrances work is by remaining positively light and delicate – so they’re never strong or overpowering like other gender-specific scents can be. They also use gender ‘neutral’ notes like fruits and woods to achieve a perfect he/she balance. But you don’t have to worry about smelling the same as your man just because you’re both sharing the one perfume. Unisex colognes interact with your pheromones and your natural body heat to give off a truly unique, personalised scent – so no two wearers will ever smell the same. Nifty eh?
