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.
Derek Lam 10 Crosby Rain Day: $95
There's nothing like a fragrance that instantly energizes because of its freshness, and Derek Lam nails it with this fragrance. Its top notes are composed of calming vetiver from Haiti and sweet-smelling neroli from Tunisia.
