Scents Based on Your Zodiac Sign

Finding a signature scent can be tough. With so many different scents to choose from, it can be tricky to narrow down your search. 

At the end of the day, your signature scent, whether in the form of a fragrance or a candle, is a form of self-expression and a way to let your personality shine. And because your zodiac signalso weighs into your personality, we think breaking down fragrances based on each sign is one of the most fun ways to find your new go-to scent. 

Think of this article kind of like a fragrancehoroscope; we’ll give you a scent based on each zodiac sign so that you can find a perfect-fit fragrance for yourself and your best friends

Aries: Honorable Mention

Aries (March 21 to April 19) is the first sign of the zodiac, and it comes in strong as a fire sign. This sign is often competitive, bold, and ambitious — you’ll probably never find an Aries shying away from a challenge or a chance to compete. 

Aries loves to win, and Honorable Mention is a winning scent. This fragrance is as bold as our Aries friends with a combination of peach, Timur pepper, jasmine tea, lily, orange blossom, cypress, and vetiver. It’s bright, spicy, and smooth, and it’s ready to turn heads.

Taurus: Instant Karma

Lovers of luxury, Taurus (April 20 to May 20) is known for having a loyal nature and indulgence in relaxing and soothing experiences. 

That’s why Instant Karma is the perfect scent for a Taurus. This candle features cardamon, nashi pear, black plum, geranium, vetiver, cedarwood, and black tea for a spicy, warm, and sensual finish. Whether you’re a Taurus with a decadent home spa or a dreamy date night setup, Instant Karma can set the mood. 

Gemini: Burning Bridges

Geminis (May 21 to June 20) are no strangers to adventure. This sign is famously spontaneous and excellent at communicating. Geminis often have a wide range of interests and are endlessly curious, making Burning Bridges an intriguing match. 

Burning Bridges is a smoky scent sure to pique a Gemini’s interest. With a blend of vanilla, tobacco, iris, rose, fresh spices, freesia, and oakmoss, Burning Bridges knows how to make a statement. This fragrance will help any Gemini start a conversation… not that they need it.

Cancer: Way With Woods

Cancer (June 21 to July 22) is a water sign known for intuition and a strong sense of attachment to the people they love. This sign is especially in touch with their emotions, making them a great fit for one of our most soothing scents, Way With Woods. 

Way With Woods is a light, woody scent that’s easy to wear, subtle, and inviting. Way With Wood welcomes you with open arms, just like anyone with a Cancer sign. It features white tea, mandarin, sandalwood, amber woods, vetiver, and musk for earthy sweet, and cozy vibes.

Leo: Ex On The Beach

You can’t miss a Leo (July 23 to August 22) when they walk into the room. 

Leos are known for their fierce loyalty and flare for the dramatic. It’s only fitting that the passionate, confident Leo has a showstopping scent to match — that’s why our pick for Leos is Ex On The Beach, a fragrance that combines fig, ylang-ylang, orange blossom, jasmine, peony, and cedarwood. It’s just smooth and intoxicating enough to pull you in without overwhelming you.

Virgo: Off the Grid

Virgos (August 23 to September 22) are generous and hardworking. As one of the earth signs, Virgos are grounded in the world around them and often approach life in a logical and organized way. 

Virgos tend to be diligent workers, and Off The Grid is a calming scent that can help you slip into your happy place. With lily, moss, cypress, tuberose, cedar, cistus amber, and sandalwood, this candle will help Virgos unplug and unwind when they need it most. 

Libra: Old Saint Wick

It’s no coincidence that Libras (September 23 to October 22) are represented by scales — they value balance and harmony in every aspect of their life. For many Libras, peace and equilibrium in all of their relationships is the ultimate goal.

You can help the Libras in your life get a little closer to that harmonious place by gifting them an Old Saint Wick candle. This candle combines Siberian pine with apple blossom, rosemary, jasmine, fir balsam, sandalwood, and cedarwood to bring a little natural balance into your home. 

Scorpio: Sweet Ash

Scorpios (October 23 to November 21) are courageous, dynamic, and determined, and they’re widely known for their wisdom and perseverance toward their goals. 

They say that opposites attract which is why we’ve paired the mysterious Scorpio with one of our more lowkey fragrances, Sweet Ash. This scent combines juniper, bergamot, fir balsam, tonka, vanilla bean, white moss, and patchouli for an inviting and addictive fragrance

Sagittarius: Natural Talent

It’s hard to pin a Sagittarius (November 22 to December 21) down because they’re always on the move, searching for knowledge and adventure. 

The go-to Sagittarius scent is Natural Talent, an intriguing and enticing fragrance that features apricot, clementine, iris, suede, and cashmere wood. Juicy, smooth, and full of charisma, this scent is the perfect accessory for any Sagittarian.

Capricorn: Birds & the Breeze

Capricorn (December 22 to January 19) is an earth sign defined by patience, determination, and independence. Capricorns can be relentlessly hardworking, so we’ve paired them with Birds & the Breeze to remind them that it’s okay to take a day off. 

This light, flowery candle combines mimosa petals, galbanum, jasmine, cyclamen, orchid, musk, and cedarwood for an earthy finish reminiscent of the Hamptons. 

Aquarius: Golden Ticket

Known for their energy, eccentric side and dedication to others, Aquarius (January 20 to February 18) is the last of the air signs. Aquarians aren’t afraid to innovate and explore, and Golden Ticket is your VIP pass to another dimension. 

Golden Ticket features bergamot, black tea, green tea, golden maté, safe, galbanum, incense, amber, and vetiver for a scent that sprays light but settles into musky bliss.

Pisces: Tart Deco

Pisces (February 19 to March 20) are sensitive and highly attuned to the people around them. As extremely empathetic people, it can be easy for them to get overwhelmed by the feelings of others and forget to take time for themselves. 

That’s why we’ve paired Pisces with Tart Deco, a nostalgic, playful scent that brings back good memories of simpler times. The Pisces in your life will likely love the retro feeling of this cherry fragrance

Black cherry and raspberry give this scent a juicy feeling while rose, jasmine, mimosa, birchwood, vetiver, and vanilla blend to make it feel sophisticated and rich. 

Finding the Scent That Makes Your Stars Align

It’s definitely fun to use your zodiac sign as a starting point in the search for your next fragrance, but the most important thing to keep in mind is your personal taste. If you’re a fire sign who’s dying to try the Libra scent, go ahead and sample it! If it works for you, it’s made for you. 

When you finally find your signature scent, it will feel like the stars have aligned.
