The zodiac has many personalities, all of which are extremely distinct. While each sign has its own quirks, styles and stereotypes, its scent preferences also differ. If you are unsure on what candle to get for your room, look no further! I am here to share with you the most suitable scent for your zodiac sign. 

Aries 

As the number one fire sign, Aries placements are very determined and stubborn. They are very energetic and to the point. For such a strong personality (in a good way, of course), the perfect candle scent should also carry these qualities. Spearmint or eucalyptus would be particularly interesting for Aries placements, since not only do these smells carry their fast-paced energy, but they also relax these super busy and determined individuals. 

Taurus 

Tauruses love to challenge themselves, but also appreciate the ability to relax. They truly balance their time, especially when it comes to work-life balance, and surely want a calming scent when they arrive home. Lavender would be an essential for a Taurus, since it is the absolute classic relaxing smell. After a busy day of climbing yet another mountain, the smell of fresh lavender would allow this sign to calm its thoughts and get its well deserved rest. 

Gemini

Geminis seem to be very social and outgoing. They truly value human connection and change. Since this sign gets tired of the same routines often, a combination of scents would work best for it. Particularly, candles with spices or those with spice blends would be fitting. That way, every time Geminis are home, they can catch a new scent note, which would prevent them from getting tired of the same smell. 

Cancer 

This cute sensitive sign is the ultimate softie of the zodiac. Preferring lighter smells, a flowery palette would be preferred for Cancers. Particularly rose-scented candles, potentially mixed with other flowers, would be the best way to highlight a Cancer’s personality and outlook on life. 

Leo 

This fiery sign craves energy and attention. This is exactly why citrusy scents would be the absolute best for a Leo. They show not just a Leo’s energy, but also would give it even more strength to continue going with the day. 

Virgo 

Virgos are extreme perfectionists and would definitely prefer scents that feel complete. Something familiar and everlasting, such as lime, bergamot, or juniper, would suffice. These smells are more subtle and fitting for every occasion, which would ensure that Virgos are prepared for any turn of events. 

Libra 

Libras tend to appreciate natural beauty and focus a lot on people’s decision-making and manners. Natural smells, such as grapefruit or palmarosa would serve as a reminder for Libras to continue to see the world for what it is: absolutely beautiful and full of life. 

Scorpio 

Scorpios are incredibly social and love taking risks. They are often the most active in the zodiac, and need a scent that would get them on their feet. Black pepper and ginger are perfect for that. Both smells will energize a Scorpio and allow this sign to get the best out of its day. 

Sagittarius 

This sign is incredibly wise, and usually tends to take into account every possible scenario. Sagittariuses are thoughtful and calm, and thus would appreciate a more peaceful smell. Amyris is perfect, as it has a very calming nature allowing a Sagittarius to truly dive deeper into their thoughts. 

Capricorn 

Capricorns tend to be determined and focused on their well-being. Their entire life feels like a formal ceremony requiring a very formal scent. Any smokey scent would be perfect for them, as it would supply that feeling this sign is always looking for. 

Aquarius 

As the ultimate air sign, an Aquarius would certainly appreciate an ocean breeze scent. It would relax this hardworking sign and take it to a spiritual vacation it has been craving for so long. 

Pisces 

Pisces are very empathetic and feeling. They listen to other people’s problems and provide undoubted support to those who need it. They are the ultimate pacifiers and bring peace and quiet to anyone. Vanilla would be the perfect smell for them  calming and familiar, just like their own selves.
