Scent for your Sun Sign


Looking for a scents sense of direction for a new perfume? Well look no more, because this post is just what the nose doctor ordered. I thought this would be a fun post to do, because what girl doesn't love to spritz herself with her favorite flavor before a night out on the town?  After all, scent is the strongest tie to memory, so your perfume should definitely reflect your original and special personality.  I did the absolute best I could to put some fragrances on here that match up with the typical characteristics of each Sun Sign.  If you don't care for the fragrance I chose for you, try your Rising or Cusp Sun sign fragrance.  For example, I am a Scorpio with a Sagittarius rising AND I am on the Sagittarius cusp, and I wear a more bright and vanilla scented fragrance than most Scorpios probably do.

Some of the fragrances are classics, and some of them are brand new (Yes Aquarius yours is new.  I know you like to be five steps ahead of everyone.)  If you feel like you have to get your spritz on, all of the fragrances can be found at Sephora, along with the provided descriptions below.  Happy reading my SSS lovers!

  1. I completely agree. I'm a Libra and I am a huge fan of the V&R Perfume! I almost thought it should be my signature at one point.:)
