The fragrance you wear defines who you are. Okay, not really—but a fragrance can say a lot about you. It can tell people your favourite flower, whether you like a wood or musk scent, and even which celebrity you follow based on their fragrance line.
For a tailored gift idea, look no further than matching your loved one’s next gift to their zodiac sign.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
As an eager individual with quick wit, you can be quite controlling. Lead the way with a frangrance as dynamic as you. Look for a bold and classy scent with a coffee undertone like Black Opium from Yves Saint Laurent. This scent is a staple for a reason.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
As a dependable individual, you need a scent that won’t let you down. Draw on your creative spirit with a citrus scent straight out of summer. Stella from Tocca is a fresh, orange frangrance that’s as hardworking as you are!
Gemini (July 21 – May 20)
As an expressive and charismatic person, look for a scent to reflect what you see in yourself. Charm others with a scent full of sumptuous florals like Guerlain’s Mon Guerlain Florale. Filled to the brim with jasmine and lavender, everyone will adore you in this scent.
Cancer (July 21 – June 22)
You’re sensitive, protective, and you love everything feminine—cover yourself in a timeless frangrance that has aged as gracefully as you’re sure to. Chanel No. 5 is a go-to, loved by celebrities like Marilyn Monroe! If you aren’t keen on the original, don’t worry, there are 12 variations of the iconic scent.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
As bold as a lion, your personality is as fiery as your temperament. As a loud individual, look for a frangrance with a soft touch, to show off your other side. Loved by celebrities, Victor & Rolf’s Flowerbomb is a women’s frangrance full of petal power.
Virgo (August 25 – September 22)
You’re a loyal, and gentle soul with a confident attitude … when your uptight and analytical habits don’t get in the way. You’re calculating everything that can go wrong with a situation. Give it a rest with a scent that screams ‘relax’! Skin is a scent by the genius perfumery behind Rain, Clean Perfume.
Libra (September 23 – October 23)
As a social butterfly, what’s better than a romantic spritz for the ages? Lipstick On from Maison Margiela was born out of the scent of (no surprises here) lipstick! If you’ve ever sniffed your favourite lip colour and thought, ‘I’d love to smell like this’, here’s your chance!
Scorpio (October 23 – November 22)
As a brave and passionate person, you need a frangrance that will stand out from a sea of Chanel Mademoiselles. Kenzo Jungle is a fruity, spicy fave from the eccentric luxury brand itself. Transport yourself to a tropical oasis with this scent, sure to linger in the best way!
Sagittarius (November 23 – December 21)
Optimistic and funny people need a bubbly scent. Notes of green stand out in this underrated frangrance from Chanel, No. 19. Although it’s been around for ages (specifically, 49 years) this green toned beauty is still rare enough to make an impact.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
An independent scent calls for a serious individual. Few are as sophisticated and serious as Christian Dior’s Miss Dior. With its patchouli and citrus scents, stay classy with this bow-tied beauty.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
This is the dawning of the age of Aquarius, and although many may choose to visit a farmer’s market for their newest scent, those on the run will look for a green or citrus scent at their local store. Party like it’s 1969 with Music Festival by Maison Margiela. Filled with cannabis and apple, this scent will have you both dazed and confused.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Suspicious minds require subtle scents. Look no further then Rose Noir from Byredo. With a classic rose scent, aesthetically pleasing bottle, and from a popular perfumery notorious for their Gypsy Water frangrance, how can you go wrong?
