For a very long time, the world of perfumes was distinctly divided by gender. Fragrances labeled “For Men” “For Him” or “Homme” tends to feature musky, woody or leather notes, while those described as “For Women”, “For Her” or “Femme” feature floral and/or fruity essence, encased in an ornate bottles.
But in today’s world, where gender disparity continues to diminish, fragrance brands and houses are gradually dropping these gender stereotypes, creating unisex fragrances featuring notes that cannot be classified as feminine or masculine.
