    Default Best (designer) fragrances marketed as unisex

    We hear a lot about best men's or best women's fragrances, and also which frags marketed to one gender can be worn by the other, but I'm curious to read what you think are the best fragrances marketed by their companies as unisex. Hoping to see designer offerings as well as niche. What do you think?

    There are a lot of fragrances used by both men and women, but not necessarily marketed as unisex.

    Samba doesn't seem to "market" anything, but I consider several of their men's frags to be uni.

    Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, and sorry I could not travel both and be one traveler, long I stood and looked down one as far as I could to where it bent in the undergrowth; Then took the other, as just as fair, ...... I shall be telling this with a sigh somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I -- I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference. - Robert Frost

    Just an interesting point for discussion: I think the fact that niche houses market as unisex much more often than non-niche houses indicates that the non-niche houses are as much selling a gender-specific image as they are selling a sensory experience. The niche houses are more about the juice itself (which is obviously gender-neutral).

    Any/all of the Hermesscence line - my lady does not find EdOV (or its concentree) to be feminine enough.

    Bond No 9 Eau de New York, Little Italy, and various others are all great.

    Yes, I do think that's interesting. I would add that at least some of the non-niche houses make a bigger deal out of the unisex-iness than the niche ones do. For example, the marketing (including the packaging) of CK One and Gaultier2 is ABOUT being unisex more than about the fragrance itself.
