Cancers, the first water sign of the zodiac, are some of the most sensitive people you'll meet. They thrive on caring for others and take pride in knowing that they are able to provide comfort and support to anyone around them.  Emily Newmanastrologer and founder at Best of Psychic Reader says that Cancers are passionate and emotional, and that "they love some sweet scents."

They also have an affinity for nostalgia and will take any chance to reminisce about the good 'ol days. Berry Waffle Cone kicks off the summer season and "will give you flashbacks to your happiest times in childhood, when nothing else mattered but enjoying the richness of life itself," says Marquardt.

Leo: Fairytale

With the sun as their ruling planet, it's no surprise that Leos are often focused on themselves. They live to be the center of attention in any scenario and sometimes it doesn't matter if you feed into it or not—they're going to do what they want regardless.

Fairytale is a scent all about writing your own story, so we'd say this pairing is unmatched. Marquardt says the scent profile "can help Leo step into the most magical and majestic version of themselves, bursting with a confident yet effortless aroma that's both fruity and warm." This combo gives off main character energy for sure.

Virgo: Eucalyptus Spearmint

This grounded earth sign values stability. Virgos are intellectual people who love to be right and don't do well with change.  They need consistency and familiarity to thrive and are a lot more stubborn than you'd think.

"The Eucalyptus Spearmint scent will be one of the most effective ways for them to keep their mind clear and invigorated," Marquardt says. The soothing spearmint combined with the eucalyptus will boost their mental strength—which is great for the Virgos who love to analyze and perfect anything and everything.

The life-of-the-party sign, Libra, is a charmer who makes friends with ease. They like to let go and have fun, and tend to maintain a pretty chill outlook most of the time.

Libra is a shoe-in for Champagne Toast. With a bit of a flirtatious note, the scent is fruity and gives off all the vibes of a glass of bubbly. "Without being too overpowering, this scent will make Libra even more intoxicating to be around," Marquardt shares. Raise a glass and toast to Libra!

Scorpio: Dark Kiss

Scorpios are dark and mysterious which sometimes comes off as cold, especially if they don't know you that well. But their complexity and edgy vibe will also draw you in, so they need a scent that will do the same.

Newman says Dark Kiss, which combines notes of raspberry, rose, vanilla, and plum musk, will do just that. "It gives an intense seductive smell" that will make Scorpio even harder to resist.

Sagittarius: Classic Flannel

Sagittarius are the adventurers of the zodiac who are always down for something new. They truly thrive in wild scenarios and never grow of that thrill-seeking lifestyle. So, you might think they'd be paired with an out-there scent, but it's just the opposite.

Marquardt says that Classic Flannel is the right fragrance because it will balance them out. "With all that exploratory energy, they need something that feels safe and cozy." Plus, it's very on brand for them to switch things up and go with something other people wouldn't expect.

Capricorn: Black Tie

Capricorns are sophisticated, wise, and a touch unapproachable. These earth signs love anything to do with organization and won't hesitate to tell you if you're getting in the way. "They know what it means to leave a lasting impression, whether it's through their looks, their work, or the way they smell," Marqaurdt says.

Black Tie is cordial and inviting and will contrast nicely to Capricorn's sometimes stand-offish nature. Plus, its darker, spicier scent profile embodies the earthly elegance of a Capricorn.

Pisces: Dream Bright

If someone constantly has their head in the clouds, you can almost bet it will be a Pisces.

They're also the final sign of the zodiac, so they know how to leave a lasting impression. Marquardt says, "if their aura had a scent, it would be this."

Dream Bright has basic ingredients that are elevated like night-blooming Orchid and crystalized vanilla that pair perfectly with the glamorous energy and intriguing mystique Pisces presents on the regular.
