This year leaps and bounds were made regarding gender neutral fashion, music and beauty. So it only makes sense that fragrance would follow suit. And the 10 picks we found embody the idea of fluidity through scent.

Some of these fragrances come from well-known brands like Tom Ford and Valentino, which have been perfecting eau de parfum for decades. Others like Le Labo, Commes de Garcon and Derek Lam are newer to the game but add a youthful approach to the gender neutral category. What's most important is that all of them smell amazing in their own unique way. 

After you check out our under $50 list, look below for gender neutral scents.
