Astrology and Zodiac Perfumes: An Olfactory Journey Through the Best Astrological Fragrance Notes for Sun, Moon, and Rising Signs

The following is a general guide to matching fragrance notes with zodiac sun, rising, and moon signs, but feel free to experiment and choose astrology scents that might resonate with you or even try creating a personal olfactory horoscope by layering zodiac perfumes for your personal sun, moon, and/or rising signs. If you don't know your moon or rising sign or were born on the cusp between two sun signs, the Astrological Association offers a free birthchart calculator. Matching zodiac fragrance notes with astrological signs is a fun way to explore ideas for new perfumes, but it's important to remember that the most important thing is to wear fragrances that appeal to your individual aesthetic, style, and personality.
