Walking into a fragrance shop can sometimes be overwhelming. Do you like
sweet smells? Is it Florals that really tickly you’re fancy? Or do you prefer Fruity? You can be smelling almost everything and anything until your senses become hazy and it all eventually smells similar and you cannot differentiate between a bergamot or a sandlewood (thank goodness for the coffee beans).
I know you may not let your star sign dictate your love life and the rest, but what if it has something to do with a fragrance that you are attracted to?
Similar personalities gravitate towards similar scents. It often has to do with the feelings that come with experiencing a fragrance that somehow matches a person’s presence. Wearing a scent that corresponds to your star sign can bring out the best in you and somehow make you feel empowered. So, after a little research, these are the scents that supposedly resonate the best with your star sign
Fire Signs: Aries, Leo, Sagittarius
Earth Signs: Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn
Air Signs: Gemini, Libra, Aquarius
Water Signs: Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces
The Fire Signs: Aries, Leo, Sagittarius
Like fire itself, fire signs tend to be passionate, dynamic, and temperamental. Fire can keep you warm, or it can do great destruction. While fire burns out quickly without fuel to keep it going, it can also regenerate its power from the ashes. A single spark can set off a forest fire. As a result, fire signs need to be nurtured and managed carefully.
The Air Signs: Gemini, Libra, Aquarius
Air signs are all about action, ideas, and motion—they are the “winds of change.” When a strong gust hits you, you can’t help but move. While some within their ranks may be true-life “airheads,” others are as powerful as a gravity-defying G-force. Air signs bring everyone a breath of fresh air when things start to get stale. Like the breeze, you can’t quite catch them, and you never know where they’ll drop you once they sweep you up. It will almost always be an adventure, though.
The Earth Signs: Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn
Earth signs keep it real. They are the “grounded” people on the planet, the ones who bring us down to earth and remind us to start with a solid foundation. Slow and steady, these “builders” are loyal and stable, and stick by their people through hard times. On good days, they’re practical; at worst, they can be materialistic or too focused on the surface of things to dig into the depths.
The Water Signs: Cancer, Scorpio Pisces
Intuitive, emotional and ultra-sensitive, water signs can be as mysterious as the ocean itself. Like water, they can be refreshing, or they can drown you in their depths. These signs often have intense dreams
and borderline-psychic intuition. Security is important to them—after all, water needs a container, or it dries up and disappears.
Aquarius (January 19 – February 18) Think water: Channel Aquarius by opting for, well, aquatic notes paired with a green base. To balance, try brighter citrus notes with strong, woody bases.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20) Look for clean, dreamy scents to channel Pisces. To balance the sign, try a green, fruity scent with an earthy base.
Aries (March 21 – April 19) Aries need a fragrance to match their outgoing, fast-paced life. Black pepper, frankincense and lemon are sharp scents that will support their fiery spirit and keep them feeling invigorated
Taurus (April 20 – May 20) Steady Taurus values stability, so fragrances with notes of chamomile or moss will soothe their peacekeeping nature. To complement their sensuality, look for top notes of patchouli … and a gorgeous perfume bottle to make their beauty-loving soul sing.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20) Scents like basil, bergamot and grapefruit will nurture your quick mind. Being the twins sign, a layered perfume that starts off with one top note and fades to another is your ideal scent.
Cancer (June 21 – July 21) Because they are ruled by the moon, Cancerians similarly have a great deal of mystery and depth. In a scent, this translates to notes of incense and amber. They’re also greats cooks, and will be comfortable in perfumes with notes of vanilla and spice to mimic their sweet, homey spirit
Leo (July 22 – August 22) Look for bright citrusy notes, like bergamot, to channel Leo, with a fresh, woody musk base. To balance, go ozonic by layering aquatic and white musk notes with metallic, green bases.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22) This sensitive sign is prone to allergies, so choose something that has an effect, but in a subtle way. A calming scent is good for Virgo to exude, because they do have a nervous energy. If they think they’re presenting themselves as calm, then they will be calm. Notes of lavender, chamomile, ginger and ylang ylang will soothe stressed minds.
Libra (September 23 – October 22) Rose, the most romantic scent, is a good match for the Libran woman. The scent needs to be in harmony, with all elements being synergistic.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21) Musk, something with pheromones to match their sense of sexuality.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21) A fun-loving fragrance suits the class-clown personality Sagittarius possesses. Look for simple fragrances with bright floral or candy-like notes.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19) Because Capricorns value tradition, they match well with a classic, old-fashioned scent.
