The fragrance brings strong images to mind for most of us. They have the power to bring back long-forgotten memories or even transport us to another time in our lives. However, selecting a personal fragrance is not an easy task.
Each Zodiac sign responds differently to each fragrance, which has unique qualities. We help you settle on your own perfect fragrance.
ARIES: MARCH 21 - APRIL 19
Scents that accentuate Aries energy while tempering a tendency towards abstinence and aggression are notes of neroli, black pepper, frankincense, and clove.
While neroli is refreshing, uplifting, and optimistic, frankincense balances it by calming and soothing the mind. Aries can be prone to aggression and short-tempered action and this combination will work in their favour.
TAURUS: APRIL 20 - MAY 20
The Taurus fragrance includes honeysuckle, apple, rose, magnolia, and oakmoss, which is a romantic combination for sensuality, devotion and beauty. Taurus signs are naturally stable, but they can get set in their ways. This combination is a surefire antidote for rigidity. The scents of magnolia and honeysuckle help Taurus to become a bit more flexible.
GEMINI: MAY 21 - JUNE 20
Gemini people are fun-loving, witty and mercurial. Fragrance notes like mint, bergamot, lemongrass, lavender, and sweet pea help to mitigate the moody, temperamental aspects as well as celebrate the whimsical parts of their personality.
The aroma of bergamot can help soothe jangled nerves and is uplifting. For the ever-changing Gemini, peppermint will have the adaptogenic effect
CANCER: JUNE 21 - JULY 22
Cancer’s tendency to be affectionate and maternal reflects in a sweet fragrance composed of jasmine, chamomile, lily, lemon, yarrow, and rose, and helps them to be more grounded as occasionally they are passive-aggressive.
Rose, lily and jasmine are romantic and have nurturing characteristics. A warm and soothing fragrance is added by yarrow and chamomile, which suit the Cancer’s personality when it’s very insecure or moody.
LEO: JULY 23 - AUGUST 22
Leo loves attention, and this bold fragrance made up of ginger, basil, rosemary, lime, and juniper will definitely stand out. It is flavorful and warm and will appeal to the playful Leo, and during low-energy moments it will help energize the sign.
VIRGO: AUGUST 23 - SEPTEMBER 22
Virgos get overwhelmed by how much they have to manage and at the same time, they are very hard-working. Scents of fennel, sage, patchouli and lemon, might be able to help. They can counteract some natural Virgo tendencies as they have refreshing and cleansing notes.
To help balance the Virgo to get over that critical self patchouli is the best as it is strong and very consistent. Like the loyal Virgo, it’s very dedicated and the scent sticks around for a while.
LIBRA: SEPTEMBER 23 - OCTOBER 22
When it comes to Libra it is all about balance, and incorporating daffodil and chamomile will bring perfect harmony. There is something fun and flirtatious about Daffodil, which is a heady floral scent. On the other hand, Chamomile is soothing.
SCORPIO: OCTOBER 23 - NOVEMBER 21
For secretive and passionate Scorpio who does not share a great deal and tends to have an intense inner life a fragrance composed of tuberose and hyacinth is ideal.
Tuberose is playful, sensual, passionate, intense, and magnetic and it pairs beautifully with hyacinth, which is a bit of a stubborn flower, but really beautiful like a good friend.
SAGITTARIUS: NOVEMBER 22 - DECEMBER 21
Known for a warm personality gregarious Sagittarius has a tendency to wander. They will enjoy a fragrance that incorporates clove, bergamot, rosemary, lemon, and saffron. From spices to citrus this intensely herbal combination is full of food flavours.
Citrus is light, energetic and uplifting, while saffron brings a little bit of earthiness and sweetness. Sagittarius can be quite impatient and this sweet scent will teach them patience.
CAPRICORN: DECEMBER 22 - JANUARY 19
Notes of mimosa, tulip, lilac, myrrh, and vetiver alleviate Capricorn’s pessimistic tendencies and ignite positivity and creativity. These flowers are full of positive energy and will bring back life to an over-thinking Capricorn.
AQUARIUS: JANUARY 20 - FEBRUARY 18
Aquarius tends to stray far from the beaten path and this is patchouli’s trait as well. Pine will keep them grounded to reality while anise will soothe their mind.
PISCES: FEBRUARY 19 - MARCH 20
For Pisces, the notes of sandalwood, apple, gardenia, jasmine, and vanilla will be the best. This fragrance helps tether them to reality as Pisces has a tendency to be flighty and dreamy.
Sandalwood and apple share an exotic, sweet and woodsy aroma which can be quieting and calming. It can balance Pisces’ weaknesses as it is trusting and strengthening. On the other hand, narcotic fragrances like orchid, gardenia and jasmine are tempting. The imaginative nature of Pisces can be accentuated with these scents.
