Be on Trend this Year with a Unisex Fragrance

At The Perfume Studio, we’ve been helping clients create their own tailor-made fragrances for years and what’s more – they aren’t always what you’d expect – we’re already gender-neutral.

Last year we saw fashion evolve as unisex or ‘gender-neutral’ collections hit the runways at all the major fashion events worldwide. The truth is the fragrance industry was on to this trend over two decades ago.

In 1994 Calvin Klein redefine the boundaries of modern fragrance with the launch of CK One, by blurring the lines of societies gender labelling and introducing a unisex scent. It broke the rules and offered a breath of fresh air for everyone – quite literally. But with retail giants like ASOS, John Lewis, Zara and River Island introducing new unisex, or ‘gender-neutral’ collections and the rise of unisex scents like Tom Ford, Black Orchid and YSL Tuxedo - the trend is definitely set to stay.

CK One wasn’t the first…

When Alberto Morillas, the Master Perfumer behind CK One, was commissioned to create a unisex scent the trend was already in flight.  4711 by Muelhens was already on the market, but it was Calvin Klein that made it fashionable. With fashion houses worldwide taking note of the ‘gender-neutral’ movement by launching dedicated clothing ranges – it probably won’t be long before unisex merchandising space is allocated in high street perfume retailers like The Perfume Shop, Boots and Superdrug.

…and we’ve been helping clients create unisex scents for years.

At The Perfume Studio, we’ve been helping clients create their own tailor-made fragrances for years and what’s more – they aren’t always what you’d expect – we’re already gender-neutral.

“Because we take our clients through a sensory journey, the mind becomes concerned with what it likes and dislikes, it is inspired by memories a particular blend evokes and allows our clients to truly indulge in the mixology of blends that mean something to them.”

Comments Helen Janousek, Stylist and Events Manager.

“Of course, certain scents are used in popular fragrances, but with us, you aren’t already led to believe it is a ‘masculine’ or ‘feminine’ blend as you would a fragrance in a retailer – your own mind tells you where it fits with you.”

Adds Ben Janousek, Managing Director.

What makes a great gender-neutral fragrance?

In truth, any blend you want to include in your fragrance mixology experience, if you like it – it’s you, but to inspire your tailor-made creation, we’ve put together a short run down of the accents that made CK One a star and our comparable blends.

CK One The Perfume Studio Blend
Top Notes: Bergamot, Lemon, Mandarin, Fresh Pineapple, Papaya, Cardamom and Green Tree. Top Note: Citrus
An array of sun-kissed citrus fruits combined together for a sparkling, fresh, zesty and energising citrus blend rounded off with a touch of neroli.
Middle Notes: Hedione high cis (derived from jasmine), Violet, Rose, Lily of the valley, Freesia, Nutmeg and Green tree accord Middle Note: Gentle Floral
A harmony of delicate, sheer florals. A freshness is derived from accents of elegant lily of the valley with bursts of sparkling citruses.
Base Notes: Green tea, Oakmoss, Cedarwood, Sandalwood, Nutmeg, Musk, Amber and Green tree accord Base Note: Woody
A harmony of sandalwood and cedarwood create and intoxicating, sensual fragrance. The inclusion of creamy tonka adds a sweet and milky vanilla note for a sophisticated fragrance.

The unique thing about a unisex fragrance is you can share it with anyone, it’s the perfect way to capture that lasting-memory of the day you trekked the jungle in Borneo, the scent of the beach in Cambodia or even your wedding day, in a bottle.
