Your Next Signature Scent Based On Your Zodiac

One of the best compliments you can receive is being told you smell good. The confidence boost you get when someone compliments the way you smell is undeniable. Sometimes, though, even though we get complimented on the same perfume, we like to mix things up and try something new.

If you’re struggling to find your next signature scent or just want to try something different, follow your zodiac! Has it ever done you wrong?

1. Aries (March 21 – April 19)

As an Aries, you are one of the most determined and ambitious people you know. You know what you want and will do anything to get that. You are extremely confident, and need a signature scent to compliment that!

The flower of an Aries is honeysuckle, a fantastic scent that will give you all the attention an Aries deserves. Lucky for you, honeysuckle is found in lots of perfumes, so there’s no shortage of choices! But with so options, how can you choose?

Two of the best perfumes for you, Aries, would be the classic scent of Viva La Juicy Couture or Honeysuckle & Davana by Jo Malone. Both of these perfumes have notes of honeysuckle, a compelling yet light (and beautiful) fragrance… almost as powerful as you. If you’re trying to balance out your aggressive nature, we recommend going for Viva La Juicy Couture, as it has notes of sweeter scents like vanilla and caramel.

2. Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

You are known for your luxury taste, Taurus… silk sheets, red wine, and comfy slippers are so you. You deserve luxury, Taurus! You work hard and have earned a few lazy days here and there.

That’s why the perfect new signature scent for you is Lazy Sunday Morning by Maison Margiela. Sunday mornings were designed for sleeping in and enjoying doing nothing. This perfume embodies a Sunday morning perfectly with notes of Lily-of-the-valley, white musk, and iris, creating a clean and classic floral scent that will make you proud to be a Taurus!

Get the look:

3. Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

You’re full of contradictions, Gemini. Instead of identical twins, you seem to be more like fraternal twins… the same, but different. You love variety and are quick to adapt to new situations. You’re gentle and curious, but you also tend to be indecisive.

Fortunately for you, there is a perfume that will quickly become your signature scent out there. Tom Ford’s Black Orchid is the perfect combination of sweet and spicy, just like you. This perfume is full of contradictions with notes of black truffle and chocolate, citrus and balsam, the fragrance seems like it wouldn’t smell incredible, but it does! If you were a perfume, Gemini, this would totally be you.

Get the look:

4. Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

As a Cancer, you’re often called the mom of the group. You are incredibly caring of both friends and family and are very sentimental. You tend to have a comforting aura about you that draws people in. Sometimes, though, you can be a little closed off, making it hard for people to see that sympathetic side of you!

To show people how warm and calm you can be upfront, your new signature scent should be one that is universally comforting and inviting. Some of the most comforting scents are pine, citrus, and flowers, all of which can be found in Bombshell by Victoria Secret. This perfume is fresh, floral, and sweet, making it very inviting and the perfect signature scent for you.

If floral isn’t for you, consider trying Clementine California by Atelier Cologne. Cancers are water signs and love the ocean, and that is what California is known for along with the orange groves! This is a very comforting scent for everyone that brings them to happy times and fond memories!

Get the look:

5. Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Leos are notorious for being cheerful, confident, and creative. As a Leo, you love to have fun with your friends and receiving the occasional compliment (but honestly, who doesn’t?). Since you are ruled by the Sun, it only makes sense that you thrive under it. You love the warmth it gives, and your next signature scent should evoke the same emotions!

It should be no surprise, then, that your next signature scent is definitely Sun Saint by Pinrose. Just like the name suggests, you are the sun saint and should have a perfume to match that! This perfume has notes of coconut, cashmere musk, and sandalwood, making it very reminiscent of the beaches you love to vacation!

Get the look:

6. Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

As a Virgo, you tend to know what you like. The smells of clean air and nature make you the happiest, so you definitely need a signature scent that fits that! You also are a huge animal lover, so you need to keep that in mind, too!

For your next signature scent, consider trying a “clean” perfume. “Clean” fragrances are formulated without all that icky stuff like parabens or phthalates so you can feel good about what you’re wearing! But finding a clean perfume can be tricky, so here are some suggestions that are perfect for you!

Nothing smells quite like the air after the rain, and if we could capture that smell in a bottle, it would be Reserve Rain by Clean Reserve. This perfume smells fresh and clean with notes bergamot, white flower, and vetiver.

Another excellent option for you, Virgo, would be Sandara by Phlur. Sandara is perfect if nature brings you comfort with notes of forest air, moss, and sandalwood. This perfume is perfect for men and women alike and smells exactly like the clean forest you wish you never had to leave!

Get the look:

7. Libra (September 23 – October 22)

You are the rock in many situations, Libra. You tend to be very generous and cooperative with others, adding balance to any case. You have a love for the outdoors and especially love all the beauty the world has to offer.

Because of this, the perfect perfume for you is La Vie Est Belle by Lancome, because you truly believe life is beautiful. This warm and sweet scent will quickly become your next signature scent as you catch the notes of iris, vanilla, and praline. The notes are beautifully balanced with one another, making it the perfect perfume for you!

Get the look:

8. Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

As a Scorpio, you’ve always loved a little mystery. When people ask what perfume you’re wearing, you tend to keep it a secret so that your signature scent is yours and yours alone. Scorpios are one of the most sensual signs and heighten this through their heir of mystery.

For you, Scorpio, your next signature scent is definitely Hypnotic Poison by Dior. This perfume was practically named after you with notes of almond, jasmine, cinnamon, vanilla, and musk, just to name a few. Just like you, this scent is mesmerizing and mysterious at the same time, and once you experience it, you’ll never want to go back.

9. Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

One of the most free-spirited and courageous signs, Sagittariuses never shy away from a little adventure. As a Sagittarius, you love to travel and explore the world, taking a particular interest in nature.

Since you have such enormous respect and passion for nature, consider a woody or earthy fragrance family to compliment that. One of the best perfumes in that category is Willow by Skylar. This signature scent was inspired by nature with notes of willow, pine resin, and heliotrope. This scent is guaranteed to put you at ease and make you feel one with nature every time you wear it.

Get the look:

10. Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

If you’ve ever been called an “old soul,” it’s probably because you’re a Capricorn. Arguably the most mature of all the houses, Capricorns are responsible and disciplined, making them the perfect person to have in anyone’s life!

Because you are an old soul, you can get away with more sophisticated fragrances that others might not be able to! Maybe you haven’t found the perfect perfume for you because you’ve haven’t been looking in the right areas! For your next signature scent, consider a more vintage scent such as Chanel Number 5, L’Interdit by Givenchy, or Coco Mademoiselle by Chanel. All of these signature scents have been made famous by icons such as Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn Monroe, and have stuck around for a reason!

Get the look:

11. Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

As the water-bearer, Aquarius tend to have a love for water despite being an air sign. As an Aquarius, you tend to be very unique, original, and creative while also having a passion for helping others. For your next signature scent consider Turquoise by Michael Kors.

Turquoise is the perfect perfume for an Aquarius because it has notes of orchid, which is the Aquarius flower, and notes of the ocean. This perfume is unique and dynamic, just like you, Aquarius, and will make you feel comforted and at home.

Get the look:

12. Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Don’t worry, Pisces, just because you’re symbolized by fish doesn’t mean we’ll suggest something fishy (unless you like that)! As a Pisces, you find yourself most at peace in or around the water. You find joy in taking walks on the beach alone and are happiest when you are alone with your creative thoughts.

To make yourself feel at home, we suggest that your new signature scent be reminiscent of the ocean such as Beach Walk by Maison Margiela or Beach by Bobbi Brown. Beach Walk features notes of bergamot, coconut milk, lemon, and musk while Beach keeps it simple with notes of jasmine, mandarin orange, ocean water, and sand. Both scents would be perfect for you, Pisces, trust us!
