While scents certainly do not have genders, we compiled a list of our more classically androgynous fragrances, meaning neither specifically feminine nor masculine.
Typically, a masculine cologne puts an emphasis on its base notes. Musky, woody, green, smokey, and spicy scents reign in this category. Whereas, a feminine perfume is usually lighter and soft. Think amber, fruits, and flowers.
Some fragrances that perfectly meet in the middle on The Olfactory Accord include basil, citrus, clove, cedarwood, ginger, frankincense, patchouli, sandalwood, tea tree, and sage.
