5 Favourite Unisex Frangrances

November 1, 2017

Favourite unisex fragrances

I don’t talk much about fragrances and it’s not something I find very *important* to a happy life. I often forget to apply it and get tired of the same flowery/fruity scents out there. If you’ve been here a while, you might recall my perfume collection video from 2015. A lot has changed!
On a spring day a few years ago, I was introduced to something completely forreign to me. Unisex fragrances! Well, that was years ago, and since then I’ve found my 5 favourite unisex frangrances. Here they are.

Laboratory Perfumes Samphire

My first unisex fragrance! Before getting my hands on this, my favourite fragrances were flowery or fruity, very feminine scents like Marc Jacobs Daisy* and Burberry Body.
Then I found this in a goody bag from a PR agency and tried it out. I was stunned! I had never smelled anything like it. It instantly put images into my mind of a beautiful curly haired man with hazel eyes. (Imagine Finn Wolfhard as an adult.) And I was so intrigued by it. I got and still do – at lot of compliments on it.

Frangrance notes

  • Juniper berries
  • Citrus
  • Vetiver
  • Lavender
  • Basil
  • Rosemary
  • Oak moss
  • White amber

Goetze Gegenwart Verdúu

This is a newer addition to my perfume collection, but is without a doubt my current favourite! It’s almost a shame that this particullar scent only comes in a rather tiny 15 ml bottle. The brand Verdúu makes these fragrance collaboration with up-and-coming fashion designers, and the idea is that you match your perfume with your outfit. Therefore the small bottle.

Frangrance notes

  • Bergamot
  • Ginger
  • Cardamom
  • Tea Note
  • Coriander
  • Violet
  • Nutmeg
  • Musk
  • & a few more…

Escentric Molecule 01

This might be one of the most hyped unisex fragrances. A few years ago, this brand made quite a stir in the beauty community, because of their niche molecular fragrances. The only scent note in 01 is the aroma-molecule Iso E Super. It’s smells different on everyone, so there’s really no saying what it’ll smell like on you, if you haven’t tried it. On me, it’s a mysterious musky that I can hardly smell myself, but others can.

  • Iso E Super

Nasengold #s

Another new-ish fragrance to me. I gotta be honest, I might have picked this one up mainly because of the name #S. I like to think it’s a scent especially made for me, haha. Some intereseting notes in this is red wine and leather. Two very intriguing notes, that I really like about this fragrance.

Frangrance notes

  • Bergamot

  • Grapefruit
  • Red wine
  • Rose

  • Leather

Calvin Klein CK One

Maybe one of the most popular unisex fragrances out there. To me this is kind of a classic. If I’m unsure what fragrance I feel like wearing 9 out of 10 times I pick this. It’s just a good stable. However, if I just looked at the notes in this, I wouldn’t think I’d love it. There’s quite a bit of fruit and flower notes, but along with the bergamot and musk, it just works!

Frangrance notes

  • Bergamot
  • Cardamom
  • Pineapple
  • Papaya
  • Jasmine
  • Violet
  • Rose
  • Nutmeg
  • Musk

Oh boy do I love this t-shirt, with the little chubby gal. The collection is a collaboration between Monki and the artist Camilla Engström, and consists of a handful of t-shirts with the character Husa (who’s so cute)
I bough these earrings a few weeks ago. In the meantime, this model has been upgraded, but still look just as awesome.
This is the best products against spots! I should know, I’ve tried just about EVERYTHING. The contents of the tiny bottle is separated, like oil in water. Don’t shake it before use. Simply dip a cotton bud into the pink part, and apply it to pimples before bedtime. They’ll be dried up in no time! A miracle product indeed.
I’ve always thought that silver jewelry looked best on my pale skin. But recently I decided that gold is just freaking fire. I found there (incredibly) cheap sterling silver  gold plated hoops. Fan!
Another pair of tassel earrings from Persuede. I wore these to my graduation on friday, and received a number of compliments. They’re just the cutest.
No, a vinyl skirt isn’t exactly comfortable in warm weather. Men dammit, it looks cool! And rather cheap too. A budget find, I’d say.
