Find Your Signature Perfume Based on Your Star Sign
Your star sign can tell you a lot about yourself and your personality. The 12 zodiac signs have a long-standing history, originating from the Babylonians in the 2nd century BC, and demonstrate one of the first concepts in astrology. Astrology has long been linked to our emotional state, our romantic compatibility and even some of our personal characteristics.
Each star sign has its own qualities, which can be used to help identify our personality types and our preferences. With that in mind, we delved into each star sign and uncovered the perfect perfume to go with it. Let’s take a look at what we found.
Perfume for Aries
If you were born between 21st March and 19th April, your star sign is Aries. It is a fire sign, and often characterised by passion, motivation and confidence. The Aries woman is bold and ambitious, often thinking after you leap.
The Aries star sign represents positivity with an upbeat nature, but absolutely ready for battle and armed when the time comes to defend herself. Striving to always be number one, Aries is audacious and self-determined.
We think YSL Black Opium captures the essence of Aries perfectly, with its energetic and bold scent that’s sure to leave a lasting impression. With pink pepper and orange blossom at its opening, Black Opium revolves around a daring combination of coffee, almond and liquorice.
Perfume for Taurus
Between 20th April and 20th May is Taurus season. Taurus is an earth sign, and those under this zodiac sign are ambitious, resilient and incredibly dependable. They find themselves in their element amongst relaxing environments and feel most content when pampered.
However, a Taurus is also not afraid to forego their spa-like environment in order to roll up their sleeves and work hard when it’s time to achieve something. They can be very realistic and grounded.
With these qualities in mind, Tom Ford White Patchouli is a perfect match for Taurus. Its woody notes has a calming effect, with the addition of floral notes for a luxurious but soft scent. Opening with peony and bergamot, it has a heart of rose and jasmine before finishing on a base of incense and patchouli.
Perfume for Gemini
Gemini is famous for being the symbol of the twins, and if you were born between 21st May and 20th June this is your star sign. It is an air sign, and known for being the social butterfly of the zodiac. A Gemini is typically playful and curious, with a desire to express emotion and take part in open communication.
Geminis are always down to try something new, with a thoughtful and serious side brought about by a changeable and open mind.
Complementing the light-spirited nature of Gemini, Dior Joy is a luminous and zesty fragrance that is an ode to pleasure. Opening with bergamot, Dior Joy has a fruity-floral heart of rose, jasmine and peach before its balanced woody finish.
Perfume for Cancer
If you were born between 21st June and 22nd July, your star sign is Cancer. Cancer is a water sign, and is usually characterised as being deeply intuitive and sentimental. If you are a Cancer, you are very sensitive to your environment and able to empathise with others.
Cancer is one of the most caring signs in the zodiac, along with the ability to be very self-protective with a gentle nature. Those under this star sign often enjoy cosy spaces they can make their own.
With this in mind, we thought Jean Paul Gaultier Classique best encapsulates a cosy and comforting feeling, along with a classic floral undertone. Opening with notes of star anise, bergamot and pear, Classique has a warming heart of ginger, plum and orchid. It finishes on a cosy and familiar base of amber, vanilla and cinnamon.
Perfume for Leo
Leo is another of the summer star signs, falling between 23rd July and 22nd August. Leo is a fire sign, which is enhanced further by Leo’s vivacious and passionate personality. A Leo loves to celebrate themselves; they are natural leaders, seeking out both friendships and romances.
A Leo is naturally very loyal and determined, and as such they really are the king or queen of the zodiac. They are self-confident and warm-hearted, and will set their mind to achieving anything they want.
We believe Dior J’Adore captures this royalty and and confidence together in one, with an opulent fragrance that makes a statement. The golden scent is a perfect combination of fruity and floral notes, with melon, peach, plum, orchid and lily-of-the-valley working together to create an impact.
Perfume for Virgo
Virgo season runs from 23rd August to 22nd September, and is an earth sign. Virgo is very logical and practical, and typically a perfectionist at heart. People who have a Virgo star sign are usually very supportive and helpful, while being hardworking and methodical.
A perfect balance, Virgos are organised and pay attention to detail, and are often described as being analytical but kind.
With that in mind, Issey Miyake L’Eau d’Issey is a perfect embodiment of Virgo, with a fresh and uncomplicated scent created with soft florals and woods. Launched in 1992, it’s still a firm favourite today, with notes of freesia, rose, lily and sandalwood.
Perfume for Libra
During 23rd September to 22nd October is the star sign of Libra. Libra is another air sign, recognised for its balance and harmony. Libras are incredibly creative, and companionship is so important to them. They are gracious and fair, with a keen mind that is enriched by art, people and places.
Able to resolve conflicts with their charm, Libras are gentle and unique in their ability to share with others.
We thought a balanced and unique perfume would be ideal when thinking of the matching fragrance for this star sign. Jimmy Choo Illicit is a sparkling fragrance that delights the senses, opening with ginger and bitter orange before delving into a floral heart. The fragrance finishes on a warming, sweet base of amber, honey, vanilla and woods.
Perfume for Scorpio
Scorpio season runs from 23rd October to 21st November, and is a water sign. Scorpios are very passionate and intuitive, often known as the sexiest of star signs. They know what they want, and they aren’t afraid to go and get it.
Scorpios crave physical closeness and emotional intimacy, while also being very ambitious and have a drive for control, which can sometimes be their downfall.
The right fragrance for a Scorpio has to be something attractive and seductive; just like Paco Rabanne Pure XS. A provocative floral-oriental scent, Pure XS is an exhilarating fragrance with notes of ylang-ylang, orange blossom, peach, coconut and vanilla.
Perfume for Sagittarius
The Sagittarius star sign runs from 22nd November to 21st December and is the last of the fire signs in the zodiac. Sagittarius has a magnetic character, with a great sense of humour. Curious and energetic, they are fuelled by wanderlust and freedom.
Sagittarius welcomes change and is incredibly optimistic, born to explore and be in touch with the world.
With that in mind, there was no better fragrance than Guerlain Samsara to describe a Sagittarius. The fragrance as inspired by travels across Tibet and China, with a sweet and exotic scent. Opening with lemon and peach, Samara has a sensual floral heart of iris, violet and jasmine before finishing on a warming, sweet base of amber, vanilla and tonka bean.
Perfume for Capricorn
Capricorn is an earth sign, beginning on 22nd December and ending 19th January. Capricorns can be pragmatic but ambitious, with an unwavering focus and can-do attitude. They are naturally very realistic but confident, and can be incredibly loyal.
All in all, Capricorns are focused but can have a streak of fun, which makes Calvin Klein Escape a great match for this star sign. It has a unique scent that is invigorating and confident, with a mix of fruity notes like apricot, blackcurrant and bergamot. Its floral heart of jasmine, rose and coriander is perfectly balanced with sandalwood, cedarwood and amber.
Perfume for Aquarius
From 20th January to 18th February is Aquarius season, an air sign that is primarily known for being eccentric and a big thinker. Able to see both sides, Aquarius people are generally highly intellectual and can adapt to the world around them.
An Aquarius is free-spirited and progressive, using their mind at every opportunity to help others and discover new possibilities.
For this star sign, it has to be YSL Libre. A bold and original scent with a sophisticated twist, YSL Libre opens with mandarin oil and blackcurrant before moving into a floral heart of jasmine and lavender. Finishing on a base of vanilla and cedar, this fragrance is unique and uninhibited.
Perfume for Pisces
The last zodiac sign, Pisces runs from 19th February to 20th March. It is a water sign, characterised by its ability to empathise and be compassionate. Pisces is kind and gentle, with immense sensitivity and the ability to adapt to its surroundings.
Pisces often thrive in shared experiences, with an intuitive and warm nature that makes Pisces often described as the most tolerant of the zodiac signs.
Gucci Bloom Acqua di Fiori is a perfect embodiment of Pisces, with its rich and comforting scent that evokes a thriving garden to be enjoyed. The scent is inspired by friendships and joy, with a vivid fragrance full of energy. Opening with galbanum leaf and citrus notes, it has a warming heart of honeysuckle, jasmine and freesia.
