NAZARIO-LADRON DE GUEVARA, Lianelys  and  FERNANDEZ-CERVERA, Mirna. Unisex fragrances to perfum and moisturizing cream. Ars Pharm [online]. 2023, vol.64, n.2, pp.148-160.  Epub July 03, 2023. ISSN 2340-9894.


Unisex fragrances aim to erase the existing border in gender stereotypes, pleasing all noses, being used day or night and shared by couples. The objective of the work was to develop two unisex fragrances for a moisturizing cream and a perfume.


The components of each unisex fragrance were identified. Quality controls and stability studies of natural aging were carried out on the fragrances, the cream and the perfume. The influence of sunlight on the fragrance's stability was also evaluated. The sensory evaluation of the perfumed products was carried out through affective methods, including acceptance tests and scalar tests, which judge participants without alterations, determining the level of acceptance and liking of the developed cosmetics.


Two fragrances with citrus-woody-floral olfactory notes were developed, classifying them in the hesperid olfactory and woody olfactory family and subfamily, respectively. Quality controls and stability studies demonstrated the physical and chemical quality of both fragrances and perfumed cosmetics for 24 months. The liking levels of the smell and the perfume, of both cosmetics, were classified as “I like”, while fixation was “Moderate”.


The unisex fragrances met the quality criteria established for 24 months, the same as the cream and the perfume, keeping the olfactory note unchanged. Through affective methods, the degree of acceptance and quality of the studied cosmetics demonstrated the approval of both cosmetics.

Keywords : fragrance; stability; unisex; acceptance tests.
