Rihanna’s been making waves this month, from officially becoming a billionaire to releasing her long-awaited fragrance through her brand Fenty last Tuesday. (Although Riri’s fans would probably prefer a new album, a recent Fenty drop might tide them over.) As a “beauty for all” advocate, the Barbadian singer has created makeup, lingerie, loungewear, and skincare with inclusivity as the brand’s mission. 

In line with designing products excluding no one, Rihanna’s Fenty fragrance is a “complex, vibrant, and sensual scent for all.” The earth-toned bottle contains both sweet and spicy notes inspired by Grass, Bridgetown, New York, Paris, and Los Angeles—the cities the 33-year-old cherishes.

While Fenty’s coveted Eau de Parfum is unfortunately sold out at the moment, here are five other scents that are meant for everybody. Gone are the days when floral notes are reserved for women, and leather scents are only for men—these bottles combine contrasting elements to create aromas anybody can appreciate. 

Diptyque Orpheon

As an ode to the Parisian nightlife scene, Diptyque blends scents of juniper, jasmine, and cedar to create a scent reminiscent of nights of partying. The perfume is named after a bar the brand’s founders Yves Coueslant, Christiane Gautrot, and Desmond Knox-Leet used to frequent for enjoying carefree evenings with friends.

Le Labo Santal 33

Inspired by the spirit of the American West, the New York brand says that one spritz will invoke the smoky aroma of an open fire. While the scents of toasty cardamom, sandalwood, and leather add darkness, floral aromas from floral iris and violet add a comforting touch.

CK All 

Calvin Klein is known for its provocative and progressive campaigns that aim to break societal stigmas. According to their website, CK All is “an invitation to defy conformity and limitations, designed to be worn by all.” With a citrusy green tea scent contrasted with perfume ingredients Ambrox and Hivernal, the fragrance smells clean and is meant to be a modern take of CK’s earlier fragrances, such as CK One.

Jo Malone Oak & Hazelnut Cologne

If you’ve forgotten, all of Jo Malone’s colones are designed to be genderless. While their Lime Basil & Mandarin scent remains a cult favorite, you can try this warmer scent to stand out. With the “crunch” of green hazelnut, the spice of elemie plant, and the woodiness of vetiver, the smell is of earthy notes, making for a unique blend.

Dolce & Gabbana Velvet Cypress

Fresh, woody and citrusy are notes that can remind you of nature. Inspired by the lush greens of the Mediterranean gardens, Velvet Cypress rests in the genderless realm due to its universally appreciated summertime notes.
