Strange Invisible Perfumes - Perfumes of the Zodiac


So I recently ran into this amazing company that creates perfumes for your Zodiac sign called Strange Invisible Perfumes.  I about fell off my chair when I saw this, so I reached out to the owners, and they sent me a few samples of their incredible perfumes. 


 I am doing TWO giveaways for this awesome perfume.  I have both a sample of the Scorpio and Leo (descriptions below).  Leo makes you smell like you have sunshine and citrus on your skin.  You really do smell like a bright and cheerful Leo queen drenched in sunlight.  Scorpio smells dark and sexy, with just a hint of mystery spice behind it.  It makes me feel more Scorpio than I already am when I wear it.  You have to smell them for yourself to believe it.  They really do bring out the essence of your unique sign. 

To win this giveaway all you have to do is leave a comment on this Facebook post letting me know which scent you desire and why.  You must also tag a friend in your post that you want to share Simply Sun Signs with.  On Friday, March 13th I will announce two winners that will be chosen at random. 

Good Luck SSS Readers!


 Aries
The Innovator
Element: Fire
The first sign of the zodiac, Aries is able to make incredible things happen quickly. Hydro-distilled essences of cinnamon, rose, and angelica fuel a vibrant imagination. Frankincense, benzoin, lavender, and sandalwood cool fiery impulses, encouraging the composure needed to realize visionary plans.

Taurus
The Sensual Realist
Element: Earth
Ruled by Venus, Taurus is a compassionate sign resistant to the influence of others. Lush earthy notes of geranium, maté, oakmoss, vetiver, and frankincense encourage flexibility and optimism without compromising shrewdness. Neroli, rose, and grapefruit court the senses and lighten the mood, allowing Taurus to shine even more brightly.

Gemini
The Mastermind
Element: Air
Gemini, symbolized by the twins, is an agile thinker with the dazzling ability to see all angles of an issue. This sign is associated with duality, a concept often confused with duplicity—hence the misguided characterization. Charming notes of violet, gardenia, and angelica echo Gemini’s alluring presence and sparkle against a darker backdrop of amber and leather.

Cancer
The Levelheaded Bohemian
Element: Water
Cancer is the only sign of the zodiac ruled by the moon. While being adventurous and free spirited, those born under Cancer are known for their cleverness, generosity, and devotion to family. Mandarin, patchouli, and lily of the valley encourage Cancer’s mischievous sense of humor, while sumptuous notes of Tahitian vanilla, amber, and leather make this sign feel right at home.

Leo
The Ringleader
Element: Fire
Leo is the only constellation ruled by the sun. Hydro-distilled essences of neroli, bergamot, lemon, and cardamom reinforce Leo’s charisma and inviting style of leadership while smoothing out domineering tendencies. Ambrette seed and jasmine sambac tame Leo’s fire, making gratification come more easily.

Virgo
The Exacting Romantic
Element: Earth
Virgo is the guardian of quality, and this sign’s pursuit of excellence is often mistaken for arbitrary perfectionism. Baked earth and palo santo reflect deep introspection and a dedication to nuance. Sparkling notes of neroli, temple mandarin, and rose speak to Virgo’s need for beauty and precision, sweetly quieting the critic.

Libra
The Connoisseur
Element: Air
Libra, ruled by Venus, is the most approachable of all air signs, balancing elegance, wit, and mischief with legendary skill. Centering essences of rose, grapefruit, and iris fulfill Libra’s unyielding need for beauty, while golden champa, myrtle, and basil calm Libra’s tendency to worry.

Scorpio
The Enigma
Element: Water
Scorpio, the dark horse, the infamous rock star of the zodiac, is nothing if not a mystery. Vetiver and palo santo both respect and soften Scorpio’s iron will, while frankincense and cinnamon reflect Scorpio’s deep spiritual wisdom and vast knowledge. Leather and white Cognac encourage Scorpio’s brooding intellect to lighten up and live joyously in the moment.

Sagittarius
The Rolling Stone
Element: Fire
The iconic nomad sign, Jupiter-ruled Sagittarius lives for adventure and tends to be a social butterfly. Neroli and lime reflect Sagittarius’s innate optimism, mutability, and fiery ambition. Grounding essences of cypress, bay leaf, and honeycomb encourage this nomadic sign to appreciate present surroundings.

Capricorn
The Force to Be Reckoned With
Element: Earth
Ruled by Saturn, Capricorn is famous for a nearly heroic sense of commitment, patience, and drive. Iris, frankincense, and Tahitian vanilla speak to Capricorn’s earthy, sensual side and strong need for stability. Neroli, jasmine, and white Cognac invite Capricorn to let go of routine and enjoy the rewards of spontaneity.

Aquarius
The Rebel with a Cause
Element: Air
Aquarius, the third and final air sign, is one of the most charismatic signs of the zodiac. Neroli and rosemary fuel Aquarius’s independence, intellect, and humanitarianism, urging Aquarians to put their global ideals into action. Lavender, white sage, and frankincense soothe anxiety, grounding Aquarius when airy detachment sets in.

Pisces
The Dreamer
Element: Water
Empathic and sensitive, Pisces, the twelfth sign of the zodiac, is seen as the wisest and most reflective of all. Grounding essences of frankincense, cedarwood, and black pepper guide Pisces through occasionally stormy seas of emotion. Night-blooming jasmine, kewda, and lime keep the waters of creativity abundantly flowing.

Sagittarius women are a ball of fiery free spirited fun that definitely translates in the bedroom.  They are hard to keep around, but if you make this woman feel safe she may just stick around for breakfast...



 

The Leo Man


-          Dedicated to my grandfather Robert Johnson.  The best Leo man I have ever known.  I miss you so much, but I know I will see you again.  I love you.  RIP.

 _________________________________________________________________________



You won’t find this guy alone too often.  He truly loves to be in the presence of others as much as possible.  He just doesn’t like to waste his wonderfulness without a crowd to watch him.  If you want this man to stick around it is quite simple; adore him, respect him, and compliment him often.  Even if you happen to meet a quiet Leo, which is rare they still want their ego stroked.  These guys are romantic, and will let you know immediately if they are interested in you.  They like to hunt for their prey in a sweet and passionate way.  They like to have a love in their life and if they don’t they tend to get quite sulky.  When they take a girl out on a date, they really do it up.  Expect the best of the best when the Leo man takes you out for a night on the town. 

As great as this man is, and he really is pretty great, he is equally jealous.  He has an opinion just about everything in your life, and he will let you know exactly how he feels.  If you are one of those women that feels it appropriate to make your man jealous by flaunting yourself or throwing yourself on men, this is not the guy for you.  He will not be having any of that.  He is the King and his queen belongs solely to him.  He picked you out of everyone to help rule his kingdom, and doesn’t need you to prove to him that you are desirable.  If you weren’t, he wouldn’t have wanted you for his own in the first place.  You will feel like you are royalty when you are with him often.  He most likely knows just about everyone when you are out on the town.  It is rare that you can walk somewhere without him having to stop and say hello. 

He needs a woman that can soothe him when he is cranky or sulky.  Sometimes his pride gets in the way of his reasoning so you will need to calm him down.  He also does not appreciate any competition in the area of career when it comes to his mate.  He wants to feel like the man and the provider at all times.  He may also want to come before your career as well.  He likes being priority.  I don’t mean to make him sound like a chauvinistic pig by any means, he just has to play the role of the “man of the household”.  If you ARE more successful than he is for whatever reason, you will need to find a balance.  Don’t be too concerned if this guy asks you to give your job up though, it is rare that a Leo man is not successful.  He will also be generous with his money with his one and only.  He loves to climb to the top of his career, because that is where he belongs after all. 

He is one hell of a friend as well.  He loves picking up the check at a table like money is of no object.  Regardless of whether he is made of money or dirt poor, he will always make everyone around him think he is a high roller.  He does it for two reasons; he has a heart made of gold, and he really does like the attention it brings.  He loves to be the life of the party.  He will act like a hardy fool for the attention, but don’t ever mistake him for an idiot.  He knows exactly what he is doing.  Leos know how to get what they want, and they know how to hold onto it at the same time. 

Speaking of keeping things; if you want to keep him for yourself you will need to lavish him with a lot of attention.  Leo men appreciate women for many reasons; their beauty is one, and the attention they get is another.  If you are the jealous type, he will be hard for you to muster.  He is just a flirt.  However, he is loyal, and if he loves you there really is not too much to worry about.  It is kind of like shopping; you can look, but just don’t touch.  Leo men get that concept and if they are happy with you they will honor that. If you do happen to separate, and he wants you back, it will be near next to impossible to resist him.  His humor, his warm arms, and his safe arms feel so safe.  He really does not have a bad bone in his body, he just gets himself into pickles. 

The Leo man is truly a man’s man.  He will love fixing things from door knobs to an old car.  There is something so manly and self-satisfying about it for him.  He will also love playing sports, and when he gets older he will love watching them.  Like a king, he will want you to make appetizers for the game and have a fridge stocked with his favorite beer.  Sundays are truly a Leo day; they do rule the Sun after all.  They also make warm and wonderful fathers.  They are playful and truly a joy with their children.  They will want their children to behave properly, but they will not be overly strict.  If you ever put your children before this man, you will find him to be quite unhappy in your relationship.  Regardless of his age, he needs you for attention and affection. 

The Leo man loves to love and be loved.  His appetite for life and love are insatiable.  He may drive you crazy on occasion, but you will always feel loved if you can leave your ego at the door.  If you can tame this man and really make him yours you will have a man that will make you feel like a Queen every day.  What more on Earth could you want?

The Scorpio Woman


This woman is beautiful, mysterious, confident, and strong.  She knows how to make the best of any situation no matter how hard it is.  She is not one of those girls that is all pink feminine and fluffy; she is a shade of dark maroon.  Still feminine, yet very powerful all at the same time.  There is nothing fragile about her at all.  There is a quiet power about her that is purely magnetizing. 

When a man starts dating a Scorpio woman, he may not see this strong side of her right away.  This woman knows how to put on a façade of a helpless damsel in distress until the first day he makes her mad.  Then he will see her strength, her sharp tongue, and a totally different side to her he didn't know was there.  That was just a warning however.  Yes, a warning.  There is something about the way she moves, the way she smells, and her intense gaze that makes you want to take her straight to bed yet scares the pants off you all at the same time.  She is not going to go running into your arms the moment you tell her your affection for her.  She may actually not react to you at all, but underneath her poker face is a passionate and sensitive soul.  She is puzzling yes, but give it time.  If she has chosen you, feel special.  This woman plays for keeps. 

She may never give you blind devotion like some women would, but do you want that?  She will never bat her eyelashes at you and tell you that you are the center of her world, because she likes to stand on her own two feet.  If you want an equal, and not a subservient, then this is the kind of girl you want by your side.  You could say something that would have most girls melting into a puddle, but she will just look at you with her x-ray eyes to see if you genuinely meant it.  However, if you say something that offends her you will feel the wrath like no other.  It may not be right away, but will come at the perfect time. See, she can love with a force stronger than anything in the world and hate just as much.  She is not someone you would dare call wishy-washy; she is black and white.  There is a bit of black magic in each Scorpio woman that will send a chill right up your spine. 

It is said that a Scorpio woman knows if she will want you the very first time your eyes lock.  They have this sense that is born with them; they just know.  She may not even be able to explain it herself.  That something is either there for her, or it's not.  She can feel it in her gut.  This is why when you are in a relationship with a Scorpio, it is never a lite one.  If you want a fling find a fun Gemini or free spirited Sagittarius.  Not to say that Scorpios don't have "flings", but if she chooses you to be more, it is next to impossible for you to be anything else to her.  Take that as a compliment, because she only chooses strong men that can level with her.  She doesn't just want anyone, she chooses men based on if they are courageous, handsome, intelligent, driven, and someone that can dominate her a little.  She wants to walk proudly down the street with the person she loves by her side.  This may make you want to run for the hills, especially if you are afraid of commitment, but maybe you should stick around a while.  She has a lot to teach you about life, love, loyalty, and oneness.  Even if you don't work out with her, a man's worth after dating a Scorpio always goes up. 

When a Scorpio loves you, I mean really loves you, it will be a love that you will never experience ever again.  She is passionate, and makes you the priority in every aspect of her life.  Thinking of this woman as just this overly sexual person sells who she is quite short.  She is much more than that.  She may drive you crazy, especially when venting to your friends.  They will not understand how such a lovely girl can have such an explosive temper.  I mean she is such a tiny feminine lady, there is no way that she could be like that.  You know the real her though, and you know what lies underneath her beautiful exterior.  Even on days that you want to leave, remember that she is worth it.  Think about all of those good thing; I know it's hard sometimes, but do it.  You will thank me later.

There are many times in a Scorpio woman's life that she will take a turn down the wrong path in life, and end up in some sticky situations.  But somehow she will always find her way out of them.  The snake is related to Scorpio, and in many ways they shed their skin and transform in the same way.  If you look at the glyph of Scorpio, you will notice an arrow that points up.  This symbolizes the low times they will have in their life, but that they will always rise from the ashes.  This is a resilient sign to say the least.  She may have a few deep dark secrets that she will take to her grave, but those are for her to have and no one else.  There are parts of her that will never belong to anyone but herself.  This woman will always in one way or another belong deeply to herself.  Trying to take that from her is never a good idea. 

If you want a lay in the street loyal friend, find a Scorpio.  It is rare you will see her surrounded my weak spineless women.  She needs a strong posse.  She may seem snobby, but she is really just highly selective. Once she accepts you into her tight circle, you will have a friend for life.  One that will be there through the really dark times, and there for all the good as well.  Some friends in life are only there through the easy parts, but not this woman.  You will actually find yourself calling her more when the shit pops up in your life and you need someone strong to lean on.  If she ever finds a friend that is backstabbing her, she will cut you out of your life so fast your head will spin.  She will not waste an ounce of energy on someone who does not have good intentions for them.

When a Scorpio loves you, your future is just as important as their own.  She will be there to support you to talk about decisions.  She will let you use her talents to help you attain your goals.  She wants you to reach as high as you can, and if you fall she will be there to catch you.  She may fight with you behind closed doors, and in the same day fiercely protect you against someone in public.  If she feels like someone is using or taking advantage of someone she loves, she will not stay quiet about it. 

As much as these women love a great night out, they love their homes just as much.  It will be warm, and safe.  Meals will be served to you, your closet will be perfectly organized, and the house will be run on a system.  Lists will always be made, she is a Fixed Sign.  They love lists.  She makes an excellent wife, but not the Stepford kind; she is her own breed.  When it comes to finances, she can work with any budget.  She likes money, but doesn't let it own her life.  She will not enjoy shabby surroundings, but if she has met a man that fits all of her standards and she is in love; she will make a dollar go a long way.  As a mother, she will refuse to baby her children, but will love them fiercely.  She will encourage them to be the best that they can possibly be, and support them as much as possible.  Her life experience makes her a wonderful counselor for them.  She will teach them to be their own person, while still defending them against the world.

She has a way of fascinating the opposite sex, so you may find yourself being a bit jealous.  She is possessive, but doesn't want to be possessed.  Protected yes, but possessed no.  Her sense of justice is as strong as her need for revenge.  On the flipside, she will remember every nice thing you did for her and repay you twice fold. 

This woman is a little dangerous, but very exciting.  She will never cease to surprise you in what she can do, and what she just knows.  You have to take her or leave her, but I hope you take her.  Adjusting to her is much easier than leaving her.  Why would you ever want to walk away from such a special woman?  Let the other men deal with the flighty women out there, because a Scorpio chose you and your life will never be the same.
