Gender-neutral fragrances have been steadily growing in appeal over the years, ever since brands such as Comme des Garcons and Calvin Klein made their iconic unisex bottles in the mid-90s. Rather than sticking to the binary notion of feminine scents being floral and light, and masculine scents being spicy and woody (an idea that only truly emerged in the Victorian era), these days you’ll find there are no such rules. Perfumes in 2017 have become multifaceted as ever, with smoky ‘masculine’ notes lifted by light citrus or floral sweetness to create even more captivating scents. These fall fragrances will conjure up beguiling personalities suited for anyone who chooses them.
