We have all been guilty of stealing a quick spray of our partner’s perfume or aftershave, but now we no longer have to.

Yahoo! Style has found the best unisex fragrances both men and women can wear, whether it is for everyday or special occasions.

Whether you are splashing out on a new fragrance for yourself, a loved one this Valentine’s Day, a family member or BFF there is something for everyone.

Some shoppers welcome the long lasting masculine scents of fresh pine, over floral feminine fragrances, which is a common ingredient in women’s eau de toilette.

While some prefer the lighter fragrances, which have notes of citrus, others are on the hunt for heady aromas, such as the distinctive oud aroma.

One thing we love about unisex fragrances is they are more cost effective, as it is essentially two in one, right?

Plus it will also mean an end to any accusations you’ve swiped your nearest and dearest’s favourite smelly if you have your very own, so it is a win win all round.

Whatever your preference there is a fragrance to suit everyone’s needs and budgets, whether it is classic CK One unisex scent, a refreshing yet long lasting Diptyque aroma or more pungent Tom Ford number.

One thing is for certain fragrances make for the perfect gift, which is ideal with Valentine’s Day fast approaching.
