This Valentine’s Day try ungendered perfumes

Valentine's Day perfumes Gucci Memoire D'une Odeur Eau De Parfum greencoloured bottle

Why not ditch the “for men” and “for women” labels when shopping for Valentine’s Day this year? If you are keen to step out of the gender and fragrance association and are looking for scents that tread the line between being overtly delicate and intensely pungent, keep an eye on the new ungendered fragrances on the block. Following the current trend of inclusivity in beauty, gender-neutral fragrances disrupt clichéd stereotypes. It’s not as simple as dismissing floral as feminine and intense woody-smoky notes as masculine. Instead, it is about creating blends with innovative pairing of ingredients. When it comes to fragrances, the focus is shifting from gender to temperaments, and scents are increasingly being seen as tools to manoeuvre moods.

 

Ahead, discover unisex perfumes that are bound to evoke love this Valentine’s Day.

Tabac, a new perfume from the artisanal green perfumery house Naso Profumi, takes its cues from the smell of first rain, the salty whiff of sea-breeze, the crisp leaves of a pine tree in mountain air and the musky, woody scent of an old book. The lead note is tobacco’s black bean juxtaposed with rose absolute to conjure a wildly romantic scent.
