Astrology And Perfume Connections

Filed in ZODIAC FASHION

Gwendolyn Christie with flowers

Astrology and Perfume are connected in strange, subtle ways. Our astrological element inspires our favorite genre of scent, as seen in our first fragrance. Through the haze of teenage trends and the sort of scent choice dictated by peer pressure, there is a distinct signal. It’s elemental. Fire signs are drawn to Earthy green scents, to balance their energy out. Water signs often like the metallic, detached cool of a Chypre while Air signs like to encrypt their aura with an Oriental or even a heavy-hitter, huge silage, old-school spice-grenade type fragrance. And what of the Earth signs? They’re big on the florals, the more like an actual field of flowers the better.

Of course, there are variations within this. Fragrance is often the realm of the Moon, so look to your Moon sign for your optimal scent, rather than the Sun. Or, if you really want to align your aura with your genre, look at your Astral DNA chart and find the dominant element. It is the one with the highest percentage. To use a personal example, I have Moon in Libra and am drawn to Orientals and the sort of intensity they suggest but which my temperament lacks. But as a mostly Water element person, I feel better in the chillier scents such as Cristalle. It’s aloofness empowers.

White Flower Scents Are Super Libra

My first scent was a gift from my pharmacist Leo Uncle. He was also a Freemason and had some knowledge of occult subjects, the Eye of Horus and such-like. Frustratingly, he would never elaborate. Anyway, he gave me the super-green, very post-Saturn-Return Ma Griffe.  It never felt quite right; boys said it smelled “clean” but sophisticated women on the bus would compliment my scent trail. The first one I got for myself and adored was the original Chloe – super Tuberose and a direct “hello” to my Libra Moon. White flowers scents are super-Libra.

Astrology and perfume connections become more profound the longer you contemplate them.

We eventually return to our early scent genre and every seven years make a drastic reset. The fragrances composed by the old-school, early 20th Century, masters are often superior. They were created with the mindset of an alchemist, not an accountant.

Oh, what a great page to stumble across – astrology and perfume, <3! (I'm Pisces sun, Libra moon, Leo Rising) My very first perfume – at about age 5 – was Avon Elegance in a brown glass turtle bottle. Teen years were Coty(?) Intimate Musk, Impulse (!) Jeunesse, Body Shop White Musk (of course, it was the mid-80's), Rive Gauche and my absolute FAVE – Magie Noire. College years – the original (it's dead it's dead, they killed it! 🙁 ) Armani for Women and Nina Ricci Fleur de Fleurs. Early 30s I discovered and adored Light Blue. Now in… Read more »

Avon’s ‘Sweet Honesty’, kind of an ironic Saggo scent….my first ‘adult’ fragrances’? Opium and Lauren…back in the early 80s when they still were ‘good’ (synthetic substitutions). One of my current faves is Bvlgari Black. Perfume I’m lusting after but can’t afford?….Carnal Flower.

I’m a Cancer, my first was Cristalle/Chanel. I’m a perfume fiend! Love the old stuff. Typical Cancer in that regard. Doing a slow reluctant switch from poisonous but delicious commercial perfumes to amazing, superpowerful home blended essential oil mixes. The long goodbye.

I: Libra , cancer rising, libra moon.
as a child…my mom (cancer/cancer ris) wore Anais Anais
also i kept from her a passion for Hawaian Tropic’s sunscreen lotion scent..!
as a teen….Gap’s eau de parfum ”Grass”, ”Dream”, ”Heaven”
early 20’s….Chance by Chanel
then a long period without perfume
now early 30’s, Libertine de Body Shop

ok now i’m on trip through scents memories in my mind. how strange and wonderful at the same time!

Well, my very first scent was Japanese Cherry Blossom from Bath and Body works and I still wear it. Its strange, I am the same way with laundry detergent. The first time I got to choose, I chose Lavender and Vanilla and that is still the same too. I am a Libra.

I’ve been searching far and low for my first “signature perfume”, but I just can’t seem to find anything that really calls to me. I know I am strongly attracted to mandarin scents, I think this is a natural choice for a leo? Who knows.
I thought that I had finally found my scent, however when re-examining the bottle I discovered that it was Juicy Couture’s “dog perfume”.

Try a Jo Malone perfume boutique is one near you. You will find a good range of citrus blends.
The value of pure essential oils are that mixed with your own fairy gnomes will give you your own
unique flavour/aroma as the chemistry changes on contact.
A drop of lemon under arms is good deodorant (not straight after shaving tho’).
They do evaporate fairly quick, the more volatile ones that why in perfumes a fixative is used.
Top notes evaporate faster ie the citrus ones…lime mandarin orange neroli petitgrain (orange wood) & lemon but so refreshing & sparklie.

I have no idea what the first fragrance I loved, maybe what my mum wore. I have no idea what it was but sometimes I get whiff of something that reminds me of her.

My fav fragrance is Hugo Boss Deep Red, ahh it is beautiful & it’s a constant purchase. But I seriously love anything vanilla even my house smells like vanilla.
I have an obsession with vanilla 😉

I’m sure I’ve read somewhere that scent is the most evocative of all the senses, and the one linked most strongly to memory?

When an ordor is inhaled it goes straight to the Olfactory Ephithelium in which 20 million nerve endings are located, it transmits into a nerve message which is amplified by the Olfactory Bulb then passes along to LImbic System. It is then analysed by the Amydala & Hippocampus which are Memory Centres & play a major part in emotional responses. At this point is when it triggers a memeory whether past or recent. That is from my Robert Tisserand book.He is called the Father of Aromatheraphy & Margurite Maury, the Mother. Essential oils are the heart & hormones of the… Read more »

never had perfume of my own until my stepmother bought me some, in London, during my trip over there to audition for ballet schools.. it was Hermes Caleche. I wish I could smell it now.

I played with testers till my Sagg Aunt gifted me…and then continued to drop random perfume gifts for years later.

Leonine Librarian

the gifts were dropped to me…and also how evocative is scent when you think of a time and place. I mean it’s not a new concept but just even recollecting a scent can throw me back into some long past time.

Taurus, and my first was Tea Rose. Old lady perfume for sure.

I’ve kind of been attached to florals since then, Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab ones that I get tend towards florals.

Used to be Lu Lu – loved it but it gave me headaches – took me ages to join the dots. Now I wear either Body Shop’s Eud de Toilet Neroli Jasmine or just plain ol essential Rose Oil – which makes me feel like a goddess 🙂

Hilarious! My first fragrance was also Ma Griffe at about the age of 13. I loved it. In my late teens I went through a phase of quite ‘heavy’ scents – Opium, Poison, Gucci #3, Teatro a la Scala… can’t wear them anymore. I was given Lumiere by some girlfriends – quite rare I think, and gorgeous. Floral, but warm and not too girly frou frou. I still like that from time to time. Chanel 5 yes, and a brief foray into Dune and Oscar de la Renta. Can’t really wear much any more as they give me headaches. Now… Read more »

4711 as a small child, to be like Mum! A couple of bottles of Tweed as a young teenager, followed by a couple of bottles of Miss Dior which I loved, until it became unavailable. Late teens I tried Mum’s Eau de Lancome. Haven’t worn anything else since. I have a strange skin which seems to be very acidic and turns most perfumes into vile chemical odours on me, even though they smell wonderful on others. Just last night Mum gave me a bottle of perfume she had bought for me. Another Lancome, but although it was lovely on her,… Read more »

My Libran mother decided to take control of my scent direction as a teenager, & bought me Anais Anais by Cacherel for my 15th birthday.
Very classic, rather Cancerian I think (no surprise as her moon is in Cancer, & Mars/Eros/12th house in Cancer makes me very into all that vintage flowery shit anyway).

Now I wear Babydoll by YSL at night & New York body spray in the day, rather more zingy Gemini scents…

I have always been obsessed with perfume; my mother wore Ma Griffe actually, and the smell of it reminds me instantly of her! My first at about 9 or so, to wear at Christmas or Thanksgiving, was a little sample bottle of Clinique Happy. Then I bought Love’s Baby Soft and lots of random “Vanilla Fantasy,” “White Must Fantasy,” those cheapo disgusting kinds of perfume perfectly suited to the 11-12 year old I was! And then I had a long love-affair with some random Calgon like…”Hawaiian Ginger and something” that smelled very clean and kind of watery. High school I… Read more »

OH and I can’t believe I forgot, I often wear this little roll-on scent that’s supposedly just for Scorpios! The only hint as to its notes are that the bottle says “ginger/geranium.” It’s perfect for daytime.

My mom handed me a bottle of Calvin Klein’s Obsession when I was eight and told me it drives the boys wild. It’s the only perfume I wear, although I don’t wear perfume often. I don’t even wear deodorant, only baking soda. I prefer my natural scent, I guess. =)

i haven’t always used the same perfume, but always the same designer, Nina Ricci, so started with Fleur de Fleurs, the L’air du temps, and now Pretty Nina.

i think they are all very similar and all floral

All I remember of Impulse was Impulse fights after PE and at lunch at school – involved spraying your friends up close (i.e. can nozzle to the fabric as much as you could before they ran away). We all used to go to our next class absolutely reeking. I don’t know how our teachers didn’t just throw us out. Of course, being a Capricorn, I did not start this. I acted only in self defence. Exclamation! was the first perfume I purchased for myself around 15-16 years old. I still appreciate it, though I wouldn’t wear it now. Description: Fruity… Read more »

May I just thank everyone for their posts – such a nostalgia trip! Scents, like music, evoke such powerful memories. My first scent would have been 4711, like so many of you, nicked from my mother. In my early twenties, White Linen, Jardins de Baguatelle, Opium and Chanel No 5 were dreams. During my child bearing years I wore Amarige, Chanel Gardenia and Tendre Poison. Of late, I have had a thing for really fruity scents (Escada Rockin Rio and I just went totally nuts for Fendi Theorema which was just like smelling Coca Cola). Now I have turned to… Read more »

sure, impulse is like the gateway drug.. i think i started with the musk one, then moved on to mens deo – always musky or those crisp, cool smells. i cant really do floral but im not a girly girl so maybe thats why.

when i finally found perfume in my early twenties it was armani white pour the ladeez.

these days i aspire to getting around smelling freshly washed with a hint of sandalwood or something but if i want to make a statement i wear the usher scent for women.

the new usher scent for women now.

I’m having trouble breathing right now, my nose is having flashbacks…
Whenever I smell Farenheit I am reminded of a French Gemini I did karmic time with in the 90s & these days I can’t take seriously any man who wears it.
The French Gemini wasn’t in love with me, just my scent..a heady, ancient, deep red Indian perfume oil called “Aphrodesia”.

All through my teenage years was BYZANCE……I can’t remember by who…but oh how I loved it…I felt like such an exotic creature being sqirted by that cobalt blue bottle…………..it’s still out there but not popular….not that it ever was……..
Still into the spicy orientals….but do love a dash of citrus to whoosh it up…

Lou Lou by Cacharel at 14 because I loved the bottle!
Pisces Sun, Leo Rising, Moon in Aries, Venus/ Mercury in Aquarius.
Then 10 years with no perfume, until 25 and Armani Mania for years, which I have finally run out of. Now Prada, except I feel silly wearing it during the day as it is so musky.
I wouldn’t mind trying new Armani Onde as I like the bottle and connotations of name, haven’t smelt in yet though.

J’adore, “J’adore!”by Christian Dior. A beautiful smelling perfume, technically called, Aue de Parfum, so not quite as powerful as the full on perfume. The bottle is voluptuos and beautiful, pear shaped and golden tipped.
Scent of magnolia, ylang ylang, patchouli and s’thing else I can’t recall. So, so yummy.

I had only been wearing essential oils for about 8 years, when my Dad bought me the above recently and I can’t get enough. He has a great nose for perfum, literally!

In my early 20s I wore Angel – a lot.

Blue Grass & Memoire Cherie by Elizabeth Arden were my first early teen perfumes. My first French one as an older teen was Balenciaga’s Quadrille & Chanel 19 & have adored expensive perfumes since then! In my 20’s was all the Dior’s…..Diorissimo, Diorama Miss Dior & Diorella. In my 30’s, the Chanel ones….now i’m old enough for Jean Patou’s JOY & Geurlain’s Jicky! Know my perfumes know me? In bathroom at mo is: Pamplelune by Geurlain, Gardenia by Annick Goultard, Yveresse by YSL, Romance by Ralph Lauren, Tea Rose by Perfumers Workshop & Fleur d’orange by L’Occitane (both used for… Read more »

I used to dabble in all manner of scents as a teen – Impulse had so many flavours after all. Then after my first disastrous drinking episode when best friend cleaned me up and pre-taxi squirted me all over with Poison (appropriately enough) could not abide it. Automatic gag reflex. This magnified a decade later by pregnancy led to everyone else’s scented choices also making me vomit. Literally. Have only just come back to perfume another decade later courtesy of mother-in-law always buying me perfume. Most are vile still but look so gorgeous. Think I love the bottle more than… Read more »

Raining Violets & Hawaiian White Ginger little jars by Avon when I was 9, it was the 70’s. My Mum used to buy them. I wish they’d bring them back in exactly the same packaging. I’ll admit to Impulse when I was about 14 :). Charlie, my first boyfriend bought a bottle with a stuffed Charlie dog, St. Bernard or something. I’ve been through many like prowincat at different times. Poison – Dior & Cinnabar Estee Lauder in the 80’s.

I collect special pieces of blue glass(not just any old bit of blue glass) so to combine these two themes my most precious blue glass piece is my grandmother’s very first “grown up” perfume that she bought herself from her wages as a tailoress at age 16 in 1933. It is a phial with a tapered end six sides and a black bakelite cap with still remnants of the silk cord and tassle attached and when I open it and take a whiff… “roses”, still , 76 years on and still pleasant. My Mother bought me my very first perfumes… Read more »

Chanel and Guerlain before they were made from petrochemicals,
I’ve been to Grasse in south of France and I long for the pure perfume past. I think Issy Miyake was done to death because it stood out as something extraordinary. I also like the smell of neroli oil (from white blossoms of orange trees) wear orange blossom when you get married (it’s ok if it’s the2nd/3rd time too)

My Dad owned a chemist shop, so I was in serious perfume hog-heaven as a youngster – Tabu, Tweed, Charlie, huge display bottles of 4711 – OMG it was wonderful, but Mum was always telling me to lay off the testers ‘cos I was giving her sinus 🙂 My Nan always had a bottle of Evening In Paris on her dressing table that I loved for the pretty bottle – pink and black if I remember correctly. I still love the good old Spritual Sky Frankinsense incense oil – it takes me right back to my young’un hippie days. One… Read more »

Thank Goddess someone said Charlie, I thought I was the only one. From there I moved on to First by Van Cleef & Arpels, after which I was stuck with Pleasures by Estee for almost a decade – though I stopped people on the streets with it.

Then I went through a phase were I was wearing Eternity for Men in honor of the Adulterous Toro, now I CAN’T stand the stuff.

After that it was J’adore (outgrew), Romance(outgrew), Chanel Eau Fraiche (still thinking), Carnal Flower (YES LOVE this), and now Pure Poison…

I’ve been through a variety of perfumey phases:

– Opium at 18

– Chanel No 5 whenever
– The Clarins fragrance Eau Dynamassomethingorother on and off for years
– That one by Issey Miyake that everyone did to death in mid 20s
– That raging red one by Gucci that smells like a bag of mixed lollies at 30
– The blue furry one by Dolce & Gabbana at 32
– Now …. BO? LOL

I can’t wear perfumes anymore they give me a headache. Only natural fragrance via 100% essential oils which I mix around to suit my mood and the season.

hmmm might have to check those out Foxxy. I do enjoy scents but finding something that doesn’t make me nauseous from the fumes isn’t easy – best I’ve come up with is from a *cough* multi-level marketing company called Neways who do this essential oil perfume called Neroli, beautiful scent but you know tres daggy to be buying stuff off a Mormon conglomerate!

YOu never know!!!! Is anyone going to be honest and admit to Impulse??? That was my first but then my mother clearly trying to save herself from my pong got me some chanel and STILL i preferred the impulse. Only because i thought it WOULD make me rich and famous with a boyfriend. Whereas Chanel seemed, to me as a teenager, all about being boring and prissy. As a leo i need perfume that makes me people freak OUT over how amazing i smell. Or else i will smell of NOTHING. Having said all that, hte only thing i know… Read more »

Probably the Body Shop’s Dewberry and then Elizabeth Arden’s Sunflowers. Both now give me a headache, and make me feel nauseous, though I still get nostalgic when I catch a whiff of ck one.

I am now a sucker for anything slightly androgynous and exoctic smelling (Serge Lutens / L’Artisan Parfumier) or layering the ex’s cologne on my fragrance (Chanel Allure homme goes on very nicely after Chanel Allure Parfum, thankyou very much…)

My sister, Pisces with Pisces rising had Sunflowers as her first perfume.
Description: Floral fruity

A couple of years ago, she decided she needed to discover her signature scent, so we went on a mission to find her perfect perfume. I don’t think this was what most people would understand perfume shopping to be, this was a painstaking and very long search since the perfume had to be literally perfect. The end result was Romance by Ralph Lauren. But I think she was only 99% happy with it.

First perfume was Guy Laroche Fidji Parfum given to me by my Air hostie Sagg Aunt.

‘Laroche Fidji is a fresh green floral with notes of galbanum, hyacinth, bergamot, lemon, carnation, orris, jasmine, rose, ylang ylang, vetiver, musk, sandalwood and moss. ‘

Yes I still lean towards blends a little like this. Light floral (not sickly sweet or over powering) with an undertone of something musk,sandalwood and moss.

My Leo mum wore this until she was pregnant with me (Aqua sun, Leo moon) – said it made her sick. She’d forgotten all about this until I bought it home when I was 18 declaring I had found my scent! I haven’t seen it in the shops for ages.

Yum! Sounds divine. I want some. Sandalwood and musk are two of my all-time fave scents. And I totally love that they threw in rose and jasmine. I’d replace lemon with limeand lose the ylang ylang.
