For all the astrology info out there on the net you are my one and only because I love your attitude. Your blog is a pleasure to read AND informative. Also the way you mix astrology/herbology/life-ology together whilst remaining awesome and normal – there are some really bizarre people out there on the net.
Now, my point: I have an astrological scent query.
What part of our astrology do you think it is that perfumes/scents appease? Venus? Sun? Moon? Or is it house-related? Also, do you think particular signs are attracted to particular scents? (send recipes for enchanting virgos with strong libran influences my way, please! and don’t say ‘soap’). I have read your few astro-beauty posts about perfume, which do suggest certain signs are more into perfumes than others, but that’s not quite what I mean. I am particularly asking about scents and smells that may be more or less attractive to some signs, not just fashion related desires for latest gimmick perfumes from celebrities etc.
Me: pisces with venus in pisces. Him: virgo with venus in libra.
So I start seeing this guy 9 months ago, realise very quickly my personal hygiene/turn-out needs to be upped a thousand fold (piscean with aquarius moon – I can be a little all-over-the-place). Enter my secret weapon: The Signature Scent. At 23, I buy my first perfume for myself. I saw one picture of the bottle for L de Lolita Lempicka and that was it for me (look it up – total mermaid fantasy! As if I could resist. Plus, not a mainstream perfume – an added bonus). Looked up the notes: bitter orange, cinnamon, immortelle, vanilla, woods, solar notes, musk – didn’t sound too bad! And as it turns out when I got my hands on a bottle, I liked the scent!
Anyway, it becomes my one and only scent. Everytime I am going to see him, I am wearing it. Now I am in Paris and we’re not going to see each other again ’til late January… innocent man seems to think the fact that the side I slept on in his bed smells like me (read: reeks of my perfume) is a sentimental nicety given to him by the universe. Bwahahahaaa. I also plan love-letters soaked in it.
What do you think of my scent-warfare, is it enough to keep me active in my virgo-with-venus-in-libra’s thoughts?
Keep on being amazing,

Dear Nancy, The Aspiring Piscean Seductrix,
First of all, congrats for knocking out my formatting! How strong is that Lolita thingie stuff? That it can alter my font/format-set up? Jeez.
2nd: Flattery works. Thank you.
3rd: Scents Virgos like? See Virgophilia. They like EARTH. Wash in organic soap (something organic and citrussy) and then exfoliate. Shower again. Apply clean organic body oil. Then achieve orgasm. Then go and exercise. Follow up with some weeding and/or baking. Dab a bit of vanilla behind your ears to appease his Libran bits.
4th: Yes Scent warfare works but you need other things to back it up. And, should he ever – for some bizarre reason – go off you, or the thing cools, you can look psycho sending perfume drenched notes. Scent was how peeps used to trace adultery in the days before technology and strong laundry products.
5th: The Olfactory nerve is the only nerve stemming from inside the brain (close to the limbic region/memory et al) and that is outside the body…ie: near the nostril opening. Do i have that WAY wrong?
6th: Is the Virgo to be the only victim/beneficiary of your Scent Warfare? Do you have other weapons?
7th: There are stacks of perfume postings on this blog!
8th: I am insane for L’Heure Bleu (The Blue Hour) but too freaked to smell it lately in case it has been tweaked by the same peeps who’ve stuffed up some other scents i’ve loved. Accountants should not be allowed to redesign classic scents made with natural essences by substituting olfactory fragments gleaned from fly spray components.
9th; Libra & Pisces are the most scent-aware signs. I whacked some patchouli oil (essential pure) on last Tues, washed several times since – obviously – and the Piscean Beauty Fanatic hugged me today and beamed with delight- “You smell divine- is it patchouli?!” Now, THAT is a nose.
10th; If you really want to scent-attack the Virgo, incorporate some essential oils (more emotional-psyche affecting) and/or a scent that is way harder to get than LL. Consider also rushing in through the balcony doors, thunder outside, in your wet nightie or whatever and with huge bunch of peonies…
