“[The perfume] is a dual-faceted scent that balances the urban with the natural and fresh,” a statement for the product reads. “The strikingly fresh top note, evocative of the electricity of contact, is complemented by solar heat and a feeling of warm stones on a hot day.”

The company first played with the sexes in 1994, when they introduced CK One, a gender-neutral scent. The updated edition “celebrates diversity” and will be available globally in February. “One gender-free fragrance for a man or a woman, without prejudices, to unite and create an experience that can be shared together in love, lust and friendship,” the company explained. “We come together void of stereotypes and free of conformity; a youthful connection between two people to celebrate the differences that make our connections richer and define what makes us, us.”

Even the packaging refuses to conform: “CK2 reinterprets minimalism and art by inviting you to look through the clear container and experience the scent before applying. The bottle is a pure, transparent and futuristic design that is cool and gender-free.”
