Scent horoscope – choosing a perfume according to your zodiac sign

scent horoscope

Have you ever wondered why there are some scents that appeal to you but other people don’t like? Has it happened to you to smell a friend’s perfume that’s appalling to you but they think it’s awesome? Or you are choosing a perfume in the store and your friend exclaims: “It’s gorgeous!” for a perfume that makes you leave the room right now?

A possible explanation of these facts lays in astrology. Just as, according to astrology, people from the same zodiac sign have similar characteristics, we can say that people from the same zodiac sign have preferences to certain scents.

Zodiac signs are divided into 4 groups: earth, air, water, fire. Each of these 4 elements is characterized by preferences to certain scents:


  • Patchouli – patchouli has a rich and nutty sweet earthy scent and is usually used as a base note. No wonder it is among the favorite scents of the representatives of the earth zodiac signs!
  • lavender – the sweet herbal smell of lavender has balsamic undertones. Its strong, yet relaxing smell is usually used as a base note in men’s fragrances.
  • lemon grass – the mild and sweet smell of lemon grass smells like lemons but it is less sour and more earthy, thanks to its grass component. It goes very well with citrusy, spicy, and floral notes.
  • vanilla – the milky warm smell of vanilla reminds people of childhood memories. Its comforting qualities are known worldwide and its pleasing scent is used both in men’s and in women’s fragrances.
  • coco – coconut perfume note is a typical tropical note that has a lush sweet scent. Its exotic smell reminds people of tropical islands, white sandy beaches, and summer cocktails.


  • sandalwood – sandalwood is a classical oriental woody perfume note. It has a rich scent that has some green nuances to it.
  • incense – incense perfume note comes from the burning of the resin incense. The smell comes from the fragrant smoke that is released during the burning process. Widely used for spiritual rituals and ceremonies throughout the world, incense is also used as a perfume note together with other resins, woody notes, and roots.
  • pine – pine has a resinous woody smell that is widely used both in men’s and in women’s perfumes. Its clean and natural aroma is most appreciated by the representatives of the air zodiac signs.
  • Cedar – cedar, just like pine, belongs to the fragrant group of woods and mosses. It has a very strong woody smell with sweet undertones.


  • floral notes – floral notes are a must for almost any perfume. However, they appeal most to people who like nature and who are more romantic in their nature.


  • spices and exotic scents – it is only natural that spices and exotic scents are among the favorite scents of the fire zodiac sign representatives. Their “hotness” fits very well with the fire element, making all spicy and exotic perfumes perfect as a gift for a person whose zodiac sign is ruled by the element fire.
