FIND YOUR FRAGRANCE IN THE STARS

FIND YOUR FRAGRANCE IN THE STARS | Fashion & Beauty: Perfume | Scoop.it
JAN MORAN, BEST SELLING AUTHOR OF THE SCENT OF TRIUMPH (ST. MARTIN'S
PRESS), REVEALS OUR PERFECT SCENT.

Trying to find the perfect perfume for you? With thousands of fragrances on
the market today, it’s like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
So we turned to the stars for heavenly advice on finding your ideal
fragrance; the only thing you need to know is your astrological sign.
Whether you seek love, wealth, or fame, our top picks will help you shine
like the brightest stars above.

“Fragrance speaks to our emotions,” says astrologer Susan Miller, author of
The Year Ahead and Planets and Possibilities. She offers suggestions to
women and men for astrologically appropriate fragrances, noting that every
sign has its own scent personality. For example, Leos are expressive and
enjoy the best that life has to offer. Leo woman will adore rich,
look-at-me fragrances. Pisces women enjoy the classics, and are attracted
to traditional scents, especially the tried-and-true vintage perfumes.
Whether you’re a luxury-loving Taurus or a sporty Sagittarius, there’s a
fragrance for you destined in the stars. — JAN MORAN

Aries As a spring fire sign, the Aries woman derives excitement from
diamonds and all shades of red. Aries will adore rich rose fragrances,
especially those with a warm woods finish such as sandalwood or cedarwood.
Tulips and amaryllis also rank high with this classy woman.

Taurus “Venus-ruled Taurus women simply never have enough perfumes,” Miller
says. This earth sign loves opulence and beauty and is drawn to soft floral
Oriental scents, especially those with violet, jasmine, and lavender.

Gemini A child of spring, the Gemini woman adores cheerful flowers and
sunny fruits. Miller adds, “Lily-of-the-valley is one of Gemini’s favorite
flowers.” Yellow is one of her favorite colors, so daffodils and daisies
rank high, too.

Cancer The water sign of Cancer loves armfuls of pearls and light summery
florals. “Send her white roses, acanthus, or gardenias, or plant bulbs of
whites or narcissus for her garden,” Miller says.

Leo Often larger than life, the fiery summer sign of Leo loves life’s
center stage. Dozens of red roses, ruby jewels, blood oranges, and smoky
incense enchant those born under this expressive sign.

Virgo The Virgo woman craves order and embraces the classics. Fresh and
summery is her style. She finds lemon, rosemary, lily, and lavender
fragrances inviting and invigorating.

Libra The autumn sign of Libra loves airy florals. “The Libra woman,”
Miller explains, “uses perfumes and body lotions as part of her allure –
she can never have too many.” She adores orchids, narcissus and freesia;
she likes a dash of sage in her food, and musk in her fragrance.

Scorpio “Scorpio women adore shades of red and spicy floral scents,” Miller
says. “Her signature perfume is musk or a haunting floral Oriental.” Think
hibiscus, spiced rose, amaryllis, and ginger for this autumn child.

Sagittarius The Sagittarian woman is active, involved, and sporty, and
wants fragrances that will keep pace with her energetic lifestyle. She
loves shades of deep purple and blue, and is partial to violet, rosemary,
and carnation.

Capricorn This winter child of the earth loves rich, complex aromas. “For
fragrance, she prefers classic scents from France,” Miller says. Imagine
holly berries, African violets, rich jasmine, and luscious roses.

Aquarius The Aquarius woman always knows the latest styles and modern
gadgets, but she has a vintage side, too. Eclectic in her tastes, she
enjoys an exotic mix of hydrangea, bird of paradise, and Russian leather.

Pisces The visionary Pisces loves angels, water, and winter whites. She
adores classic floral bouquets but likes a dash of patchouli or incense to
warm white floral bouquets of jasmine, lily, and narcissus.
