13 Best Unisex Fragrances In 2023

Feb 25, 2023

To help make your decision easier (since we’re sure you have enough on your plate as it is), we’ve compiled a convenient list of the 13 best unisex fragrances for you to choose from. Best Unisex Fragrances Updated: 25 Feb 2023 10:07 am Many people won’t leave the house without using some kind of fragrance product, whether perfume, cologne or eau de toilette. Some people even just stick to deodorant, but it’s always a good time to try something new to spritz up your life. Whether you’ve just been promoted and want to show the world your style, or you’ve had a rough few years and are looking for a confidence boost to get you going, you can make a strong start to 2023 with a new fragrance. And to help make your decision easier (since we’re sure you have enough on your plate as it is), we’ve compiled a convenient list of the 13 best unisex fragrances for you to choose from. What actually is a fragrance? Before getting into the list, it will be helpful to know what makes a good fragrance so you know what to look for. If you’re already familiar, feel free to skip ahead! But for those newer to this fragrant world, it’s worth brushing up on the basics before you make your decision. A barrier for many people when shopping for fragrances is the idea that cologne is intended for men and perfume for women. However, this is not true. These products differ based on their constitution. Perfumes have the highest concentrations of fragrance oil, usually 15-30%, whereas colognes only contain 3-4%. There is also eau de parfum, a milder counterpart with only 10-15% fragrance oil, and eau de toilette which may have 5-12%, as well as eau fraiche which contains less than 3%. This means that of the three, perfumes have the strongest scent and can last over 8 hours, whilst eau fraiche is the mildest and lasts only around 2 hours. Although both have their ideal uses, if you’re looking for something more moderate then eau de parfum, cologne or eau de toilette may suit your preferences and needs better. What types of fragrances are there? It’s important to understand the different classifications of fragrances since this can help you narrow down what profile you want to give off. Fragrances can be categorized as fresh, floral, oriental or woody based on what ingredients they contain. Fresh fragrances will give off herbal, aquatic or citrusy smells, creating an image of summer gardens and beach days, whilst floral fragrances include sweeter smells inspired by flowers. Oriental and woody fragrances both give off warmer and deeper scents, with oriental leaning towards spices and sometimes flowers, while woody takes on a more earthy and smoky tone. If you can’t quite decide which sounds the most appealing to you, never fear! Most fragrances will use a pleasing combination of these categories as well as their sub-classes, so there’s bound to be a mixture that suits your tastes. When talking about fragrances, you’ll also often hear the term “note” thrown around. All fragrances consist of three types of notes: top, middle and base. Top notes are the way the fragrance introduces itself and will usually linger for the first 5-15 minutes. These will then give way to the middle notes, which last for up to 60 minutes until those fade into the base notes for the remainder of the fragrance’s effect. The best fragrances will use distinct scents in each of these phases to tell a story through this evolution of smell. Why shop unisex? As we’ve established, different types of fragrances are distinguished by their blends and ingredients, not by anything to do with gender. In 2023 the idea of any specific smell being gendered is more than outdated. Men should get to smell like a gentle garden of sweet flowers too, and likewise, women shouldn’t be held back from smelling like an earthy forest with a hint of spice. At the end of the day, we all just want to smell good, which is why we encourage you to shop for fragrances that you will wholeheartedly enjoy for yourself, rather than adhering to those boring and arbitrary standards. Now that you’re briefed on the basics, it’s time to make your informed decision on which fragrance to add to your shelf. Without further ado, here are the best unisex fragrances of 2023! Blu Atlas - Atlantis Cologne With its sleek matte black design and exotic scent profile, Atlantis by Blu Atlas fits perfectly at the top of this list. Its complex yet exciting profile is the perfect way to draw yourself out of your shell and into new adventures in 2023. Taking inspiration from the coastal jungles of Bali, it has a fresh scent consisting of bergamot, lemon and blackcurrant with floral and woody undertones. With sweet middle notes of lavender, clary sage, peach and apricot and earthy base notes of orris, oakmoss, violet, ambrette seed and musk, you’ll feel uplifted and enthralled whilst maintaining a comfortable groundedness. These smells combined create a unique and complementary profile that can be dressed up as an alluring and mysterious scent for more special occasions or worn as a calm and pleasant background to your day-to-day life. Made with premium ingredients and in accordance with industry-clean standards, it is the ideal fragrance for both men and women looking for a pristine and enthralling scent. Its high quality ensures it can withstand all kinds of weather and activities without fading away. Not to mention it is vegan and cruelty-free, meaning you can enjoy it without guilt. It’salso free of parabens, preservatives, phthalates, sulfates and synthetic dyes, so you can guarantee yourself a clean and comfortable wear with Atlantis. There is truly no better fragrance to use in 2023. One spritz of Atlantis is all you need to boost your confidence and feel good about yourself, as we all deserve. Although Atlantis is largely marketed towards men, no woman would feel out of place with the fresh tones and adventurous aura it provides. So if you’re looking for a year of adventure and exploration whilst staying unapologetically true to yourself, Atlantis by Blu Atlas is the best unisex fragrance for you. 2. Maison Margiela - Replica Eau de Toilette 2. Maison Margiela - Replica Eau de Toilette The Replica line by Maison Margiela certainly features several strong contenders for a top unisex fragrance. With a range of unique scents inspired by daily life, from fireplace scenes to lazy mornings, there’s bound to be a fragrance perfect for everyone within this collection. Each scent is designed to bring out the best in you without being overbearing or too intense. All of their profiles are expertly crafted with a specific comforting feeling in mind, and their complex, layered smells portray these incredibly well. It’s impossible not to feel at peace in the environments these fragrances curate. Our personal favorite is the Lazy Sunday Morning scent, which has notes of lily of the valley, white musk, iris and ambrette seeds. Its clean and comforting smell is reminiscent of freshly washed sheets and cozy mornings in bed, which make it perfect for feeling calm and peaceful as you go about your day. With a stylish bottle that makes for easy application, plus a paraben-free mixture, you can freshen up and start your day with ease. If you find your days are more hectic than relaxed, a Replica fragrance is the perfect thing to soothe your nerves and maintain a sense of calm. There’s truly no better way to not only make yourself feel cool, calm and collected as you attract and impress those around you. And in 2023, I think we all crave a taste of some confidence like that! 3. Kiehl’s - Musk Eau de Toilette 3. Kiehl’s - Musk Eau de Toilette For a soft, flowery and, of course, musky aura, Kiehl’s classic eau de toilette is a perfect choice.

The underlying middle notes of rose, lily, ylang-ylang and neroli transition to a final touch of tonka nut, white patchouli and musk base notes. The result is a scent that evokes a calm yet mysterious overlay with a gentle overlay. Without a doubt, this traditional yet intriguing scent will captivate anyone around. If this fragrance sounds familiar, that’s because it’s the modern take on Kiehl’s iconic Love Oil from the 1920s. It was reintroduced to the markets in 1963, and once again in recent times with a blend that is both nostalgic and modern. This fragrance has truly stood the test of time, and would be the perfect signature scent for a warm and exciting 2023. As well as their reliably high-quality blend, Kiehl’s is also dedicated to environmentally-friendly services, so you can always feel at ease buying from them. 4. Calvin Klein - One Eau de Toilette 4.

Frequently asked questions How do you find your signature scent? A signature scent isn’t something that can be purchased. It is made with the unique combination of a fragrance product with your own body’s natural oils and odors. Of course, each person will find some fragrances more complementary than others, however, if you enjoy the description of a product and make sure to use it correctly, any fragrance can easily become part of your signature scent. Our list has been created with a wide range of tastes in mind, so you’re bound to find your personal favorite amongst our top 13 unisex fragrances. If you buy a fragrance and try it but still feel unsure, you can always try using more or less of it, combining it with another fragrance or asking others for feedback as well. It can take some time to get used to a new smell, but once you do, the confidence you feel knowing how good you smell will be more than enough to carry you through the day. How much should you spend on fragrance products? Price isn’t everything, and like with any other product there will always be cheaper options that smell better and last longer than some expensive options. That being said, if you particularly like a product and it has good reviews, it’s worth investing a little more into it. After all, you’ll only need to use a slight amount each day, so even one small bottle will last you a while. Most of all, a good fragrance can make a huge difference to your confidence, style and the impression you make on others, so the payoff is often worth the extra money. How do you apply fragrances? Something like perfume or cologne may sound simple to use, yet it’s easy to make mistakes. By following this quick guide, you can make the most of your new fragrance and find out the best way to make it part of your signature scent. When applying fragrance, it is best to spray it onto your skin rather than your clothes. The material of most clothing tends to muffle rather than highlight the scent and makes it easier for the fragrance to rub off and fade away. Applying it directly to your skin allows it to combine with your body’s natural odor, covering up any unpleasant smells and creating a longer-lasting effect. This also allows the product’s scent to become more unique and personal, making it smell more natural to those around you. An ideal time to apply your fragrance is right after showering, as your skin will be clean and your pores will be open and ready to absorb the scented molecules. Just make sure your skin is completely dry so that the fragrance doesn’t become watered down or washed off. Also, it’s a good idea to do this after first applying a neutral deodorant. This will help keep you clean and fresh throughout the day and will also boost the effects of your fragrance. If your product comes in a spray bottle, hold it around 4-5 inches away and spray it onto areas of your body that are prone to heat and sweat. Your neck, chest, armpits and wrists are all good examples of heat-prone areas that will benefit from some spray. If the product does not come with a spray lid, then simply dab a finger into the liquid and gently apply it to your skin. Be careful not to rub it in as this can weaken the fragrance, causing it to fade away quicker. Do not splash the liquid on yourself either, as this will both overapply the scent and waste the product. How often should you apply? Depending on how concentrated your fragrance is, you may only need to apply it once in the morning or reapply it throughout the day. Most perfumes can last up to 8 hours or longer, so for everyday use one spritz in the morning and maybe one in the afternoon if you’ll be out and about should be enough. Colognes and eau de toilettes will need to be reapplied at least once during the day, but preferably twice or three times, especially in the case of cologne. And finally, eau fraiche will need to be reapplied every 2-3 hours, as it has the weakest concentration of fragrance oil. A word of warning though: when wearing fragrances your own nose will adjust to the smell fairly quickly. It may seem as though the scent has worn off, however, those around you will still be able to detect it. You should always be cautious when applying and reapplying fragrances so as not to overdo it, as even though you might not be able to smell it at all times, other people will definitely notice if you’re wearing too much. It’s always worth asking for someone else’s opinion as well to make sure you’re wearing the right amount.
