Every plant with thorns blooms in Aries season, including roses, honeysuckle, jasmine and geranium. This makes Gucci Bloom Nettare Di Fiori the perfect perfume for reminding bold Aries to stop and smell the flowers; this perfume combines the sweetness of  blossoms with the edge of thorns and a kick of ginger that embodies their passion and competitive edge.

Leo: Versace Eros

Dates: July 23–Aug. 22

A fire sign, Leo is a natural-born leader in all things. Smart, courageous, passionate and friendly, this sign knows what it wants and will work incredibly hard to get there.

Virgo: The Beat by Burberry

Dates: Aug. 23–Sept. 22

Characteristics: Intelligent, practical, kind

Grounded as an earth sign, Virgos are practical, no-nonsense and methodical in their approach to friends, relationships and life. These signs are intelligent, kind and passionate once you get to know them, and value organization and security above all else.

While regimented and secure, Virgos are in no way boring. This makes Burberry The Beat ideal for this sign: classically light, crisp and floral but with some serious staying power. Combining pink pepper, bergamot, bluebell and other green and floral accords, this perfume is classic yet passionate, much like the Virgo.

Libra: Byredo Blanche

Dates: Sept. 23–Oct. 22

Characteristics: Creative, kind, harmonious

Somewhere in the sky as an air sign, intelligent, kind Libra is known for making big plans but having some trouble with follow-through. Equipped with an active, creative imagination, this sign values harmony and serves as an incredibly effective mediator for their large groups of friends and loved ones — they are characterized by the scales, after all.

The Libra values balance and harmony, which makes Blanche the ideal fragrance for this sign. Light and refreshing, this scent expertly balances between musky scents of blonde wood, white musk and sandalwood with floral accords of roses, pink peony, violet and African orange blossom.

Scorpio: Black Orchid by Tom Ford

Dates: Oct. 23–Nov. 21

Characteristics: Independent, passionate, loyal

Ruled by the ocean as a water sign, Scorpio is headstrong, passionate, independent and lives by the old adage of “my way or the highway.” Much like their scorpion namesake, they have a tendency to have a shell or wall up to protect any vulnerabilities, and it can take a bit of effort to get past this. Once you’ve cracked their shell, however, this sign makes a loyal and diehard friend.

To match their personality, Scorpio needs a bold, one-of-a-kind perfume that reveals a sweeter side once it dries down. This makes Black Orchid the perfect complement to any Scorpio, starting off with a bold start of blackcurrant, French jasmine and citrus; giving way to a softer side of gardenia, lotus and of course, black orchid.

Ever-feisty, this fire sign is an effortless leader who isn’t afraid to tell it like it is. Despite their straightforward nature, the sign is  generous, open-hearted and trustworthy. Creative and imaginative, this zodiac sign makes for a great friend and better leader.

Warm-hearted signs like Sagittarius deserve warm and rich perfumes, making Spellbound a perfect scent. With notes of cardamom, vetiver, orange blossom, vanilla and daffodil, this perfume represents both the sweetness and spice a Sagittarius possesses.

Capricorn: Chanel No. 5

Dates: Dec. 22–Jan. 19

Characteristics: Hard-working, stubborn, friendly

Resolute and steady, this earth sign is smart and hard-working — once they put their mind to something, they make it happen. Lovers of rules, order and organization, this sign is a perfectionist and values looks and appearances. These characteristics may make this sign seem stubborn and hard to please, but when around the right people and drawn out of their shell, these signs make loyal companions for life.

Capricorns have a reputation as “old souls,” valuing traditions and history. What better perfume for this sign than the scent that revolutionized the fragrance industry, Chanel. No 5? Notes of sandalwood, lemon, neroli, vanilla and musk make up this infamous scent, which will please even the most perfection-seeking Capricorn.

Aquarius: Marina De Bourbon

Dates: Jan. 20–Feb. 18

Characteristics: Unique, independent, undefinable

Free-spirited as their air sign, Aquarians are independent and unique, with each possessing different qualities and shying away from being able to fit into any one category or label. They want justice and equality, and most of all want to make the world a better place than how they found it.

This zodiac sign is ever-changing and hard to describe, so their scent should match their enigmatic personalities. Marina De Bourbon is as original and hard-to-define as the Aquarius wearing it, composed of notes of cassis, lemon, watermelon, jasmine and passionfruit.

Characteristics: Sensitive, trustworthy, creative

As a water sign, Pisces is sensitive, creative, intelligent and has a strong emotional and moral compass guiding them between right and wrong. Trustworthy, intuitive and at times psychic, this zodiac sign’s gut should be trusted when it comes to determining whether situations and people are good or bad.

This sign makes for a reliable friend and moral compass, and should have a trustworthy, everyday perfume to match. Fan-favorite Acqua di Giola is the perfect scent for a Pisces: an everyday fragrance with notes of lemon, mint, jasmine, peony and pink pepper.
