One of the biggest trends in fragrance over the last few years has been the rise of gender neutral fragrances. According to Mintel, gender-neutral fragrances in the perfume market accounted for just 17% of the market in 2010 growing to 51% by 2018. Emerging in tandem with the increasing mainstream visibility of the LGBTQ+ community and those who challenge traditional ideas of gender, gender neutral fragrances shook up the rigidly gender-divided perfume market.
However the idea of unisex fragrance can also be applied to scenting the home, offering a middle ground between ‘feminine’ florals and ‘masculine’ notes of woods and spices. These scents either foreground fresh and fruity scents that tend to have broader appeal or blend together stereotypically masculine and feminine elements for an interesting, layered fragrance. Here are some of our favourites!
