The ram is adventurous and energetic and its choice in fragrances should be similar. Moving away from the florals, Aries should go for citrus and oriental notes that are more out there, rather than subtle. Spread the cheer and pick something that won’t only wake you up, but will wake up others around you as well.
Taurus’ personality traits are loyal, patient, and self-indulging, and that’s why fragrances that are warm and positive usually suit them. Go for earthy fragrances such as floral, rose, sandalwood, amber, and jasmine. Subtlety is key, so pick fragrances with restrained notes; they’ll suit you best.
Playful and experimental is part of the Gemini personality. Go for creative fragrances that have an artistic flare to them — combine notes of gardenia, amber and sandalwood, with others like coriander, nutmeg and leather to form your own signature scent.

Ruled by the sun, Leo requires a scent that is reflective of that warm summer feel, but is sensual at the same time. Personality traits of a Leo include being the centre of attention like its ruler, so bolder scents that command attention are usually a go-to.
