Ever wonder if your zodiac sign has anything to do with… your smell?

According to astrologers, the answer is yes.

Like flowers, herbs and natural elements — all essential ingredients of fragrances — humans too are governed by the movement of planets. This means that essences and perfume notes are linked to zodiac signs, and when paired correctly, can bring out the best in you.

Think about it this way too: your smell reaches a person before you do. Your welcoming party's and your own senses of smell are secretly drawing you to one another (given that you like what you’re smelling, of course). The magic of this invisible connection spells the coming together of compatible zodiac signs.

Wearing the right scent for you is then part of showing up as your highest self. Indulge your senses in this most wonderful time of the year, in a little bit of luxury of smelling your best... and uplift yourself with a new scent that's just for you.

Here’s our Holiday Special edit, by Zodiac Sign.


Sensuous Scorpio, this is your time to shine. Oriental and spicy scents are right for you. Like the gingery spice of a crunchy holiday cookie, indulge in sexy and woodsy notes. Iris, vanilla, patchouli, and leather should do the trick.
