Perfume Picks for Aquarius3 min read
AQUARIUS January 21 – February 19 The Creative Spirit
The eleventh sign of the zodiac, Aquarius, is very creative, independent and original.
Ruled by Uranus, the planet that governs scientific inventions, innovation and technology, Aquarians are considered the intellectuals of the zodiac.
They value helping others with their expertise, and are often eccentric, original thinkers. Aquarian women are often drawn to scents that challenge or surprise them, or that evolve on the skin in unique ways.
Trust an Aquarius to fall for a true misnomer of a perfume. Not a Perfume by Juliette Has A Gun is composed of a single note, ambrox, which has a woody, slightly musky aroma that interacts with the skin’s chemistry – and certainly reflects the Aquarius’ tendency towards originality and creativity.
Try: Wild Fire by Raw Spirit Fragrances
A woody creation with a floral backdrop, Wild Fire is a top pick for the Water Bearers of the zodiac. Considered to be the most humanitarian star sign, Aquarians tend to fight the good fight, just like this impressive niche brand, Raw Spirit that specializes in creating amazing scents inspired by some of the oldest and most marginalized cultures in the world. Their main mission is not just creating perfume, but also supporting the communities that have informed the ingredients in each blend.
Wild Fire is an usual scent, mixing sandalwood, amber and floral notes, including ylang-ylang and jasmine petals – accented with the dry, rich aroma of cedarwood.
Try: L’Etrog by Arquiste
Citrus isn’t necessarily the first note that comes to mind when you think of winter-baby Aquarius, but the way etrog – otherwise known as citron fruit -is matched with lush vetiver and sweet dates ensures it amps of the warmth during these frigid months.
