Unisex are but anyway all perfumes... ;P
...so why not declare all the same for marketing purposes? Then you have in the best case even the double paragraph! :D
Well, maybe you just scare off customers ... some males or females prefer then but their sex or chosen gender corresponding accessories, or such, which underline the gender orientation.
I have actually seen a video on YouTube, in which the creator of the brand explains that he wanted to call the fragrance "Compliment Getter DNA", and was virtually convinced from his environment to christen him unisex.
I play around here intentionally with the intentions of the manufacturer to baptize the fragrance so, because it is just really a very similar fragrance to Ultra Male by Gaultier. Translated, this means "Ultra Male" (French).
So here we have a fragrance idea, which was declared as "ultra male", and is now marketed as unisex par excellence further, - paradoxical, right? :D
But I don't want to make fun of it at all, on the contrary. It even shows very nicely that everything is relative, and somehow also a matter of perspective.
To this a small digression:
I recently had a small conversation with a Parfumo user, who said that he feels the fragrance "Vintage" by John Varvatos, described by me in a comment as "typically masculine", not at all as masculine, compared to, for example, Antaeus.
Compared to powdery-sweet men's fragrances like Dior Homme Intense aka "sexy ladies handbag", Fahrenheit 32, Black XS pour Homme, or any newfangled Cashmeran crackers like "Coach Platinum" or anything else pick-sweet, but "Vintage" seems to me very well core-masculine. (So my impression)
Nowadays, I guess you can generally see gender scent orientation as a role you can slip into anytime you "feel" it. Or as a "serving recommendation", or stereotype definition that you know what it's about.
Oh well, so much for the name choice and the irony in that regard. Anyway, my girlfriend said she wouldn't wear something like that, so much for that.... ;P
But how exactly smells unisex then now?
So although the notes seem quite different on paper, Unisex actually smells extremely congruent with Ultra Male. Perhaps somewhere between Ultra Male and the Zara clone, "Gourmand Leather", since there is no pear as a top note here. Instead, one relies on bergamot, which probably combined with the sweet accords (which are very sweet...) and the Artemisia herb titled as "tart-aromatic-sweet" creates a similar impression as the fancy Ultra Male pear, with caraway, lavender and mint.
At least that's how I explain the similarity.
Unisex is a bit more than just an Ultra Male clone though, I recognize certain "Fragrance One" DNA building blocks when it has settled a bit on the skin. At first I thought it was more like some aroma chemicals contained in both.
But to be fair, bergamot and artemisia are also in Date for Men. Not in Office though, and I detect a citrusy woody undertone even from this in the shadow of the scent. Maybe Iso-E-Super?
Anyway, all in all, a great fragrance, no matter what it is called and what it copies. Financially, however, you must weigh yourself as for you the cost-benefit calculation is more up, but so much in advance:
I personally feel Ultra Male as something more independent and more interesting to smell, and I think that it usually costs less per milliliter. :)
As an absolute fan of the fragrance, I have me however Unisex also purchased as a bottle, let's see how he does so when wearing several times.
The fragrance to test I can in any case highly recommended, but especially if you find Ultra Male although basically cool, but you have always bothered the birnige aspect of it.
