Do you believe in horoscopes?
This week, we've had the first full moon of 2024. The effects of a full moon in nature are well documented, but us humans, we have a tendency to look for a spiritual meaning in it as well. What about you? Do you believe in horoscopes?
We certainly won’t dare to predict your future for 2024 but we had a bit of fun looking through the zodiac signs and decided to match our signature fragrances to each, based on their most common personality traits. So if astrology is your jam, let us know how we did!
Aquarius (January 20 - February 18): The Quirky Innovator
Aquarius, the quirky visionaries. They live in the future and see the world in a way that others can only dream of. Just be ready for some eccentric ideas and unexpected adventures. -So we’re thinking, Pimento & Cranberries: an unexpected combination of scents, that not many would have put together, but without a doubt a winning blend.
Pisces (February 19 - March 20): The Dreamy Artist
Pisces, the dreamers and artists. They live in a world of imagination, creativity, and emotion. Just make sure to ground them occasionally – they might float away on a cloud of dreams. Vanilla & Fig: the sweetness of vanilla is certainly out there, but it is perfectly grounded and complemented with the fig.
Aries (March 21 - April 19): The Energetic Trailblazer
Aries, the unstoppable force of the zodiac! Always the go-getter, they charge into situations like a kid in a candy store. Patience might not be their strongest suit, but hey, who needs it when you're busy conquering the world? This is an easy one - Lemongrass: our most powerful fragrance, one that you feel immediately, when you enter the room.
Taurus (April 20 - May 20): The Relaxed Gourmet
Taurus, the ultimate foodie of the zodiac. Their love for luxury and comfort is unmatched. Just don't rush them; they move at their own pace. Slow and steady wins the race. Luxury and comfort? Say less… Sleep Sensation!
Gemini (May 21 - June 20): The Social Butterfly
Gemini, the master of multitasking and the gossip grapevine. They're the life of the party and can chat up a storm. Just be ready for their dual personality – one minute they're up for an adventure, the next they're binge-watching their favourite show. Spruce & Fir, here’s why - one minute this is a scent reminiscent of a summer walk through an evergreen forest, the next it’s the aroma of a Christmas tree standing proudly in the corner of your cosy living room.
Cancer (June 21 - July 22): The Emotional Nurturer
Cancer, the emotional heart of the zodiac. They're the friends who always have tissues ready for a tear-jerker movie night. Just make sure to handle them with care; they're as delicate as a flower. Bohemian Rose our most romantic and delicate fragrance.
Leo (July 23 - August 22): The Drama Royalty
Leo, the true kings and queens of the zodiac. They shine bright, love the spotlight, and are known for their theatrical flair. Every day is a stage, and they're the stars of the show – with a roar! Sandalwood & Patchouli both of these aromas are quite dominant in the fragrance world and you tend to love or hate them. Seems pretty Leo…
Virgo (August 23 - September 22): The Organized Perfectionist
Virgo, the meticulous planners. Everything in their world has its place, and they won't rest until it's perfect. Just don't mess with their color-coded to-do lists – chaos may ensue. Lavender: it’s clean and it’s crisp, and if you start blending it willy-nilly, it’s a fast lane from calm to chaos.
Libra (September 23 - October 22): The Charming Diplomat
Libra, the peacekeepers and charm masters. They can sweet-talk their way out of anything and have a knack for creating harmony. Just as our Chamomile & Cedar fragrance which is very peaceful and calming, neutral aroma.
Scorpio (October 23 - November 21): The Mysterious Intensity
Scorpio, the enigmatic souls of the zodiac. Passionate and intense, they're the detectives of the friend group, always ready to uncover secrets. Cross them at your peril; they have a sting to match their name. Frankincense and Myrrh, a pleasant fragrance that might seem a little spicy to some. And it’s mysterious too - the rich history of the aromas dates way back, famous for the incense being a part of religious and cultural ceremonies, maybe even some spells.
Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21): The Adventurous Optimist
Sagittarius, the eternal optimists and explorers. They're always up for an adventure, even if it means getting lost along the way. Just make sure to have a map – or not, because getting lost is part of the fun! Grapefruit & Neroli, a bright, uplifting fragrance, just like your favourite Sagitarius. Bonus points it’s one of the selected Signature fragrances that we offer as an Air Freshener, I.e. a road trip essential.
Capricorn (December 22 - January 19): The Ambitious Overachiever
Capricorn, the hardworking overachievers of the zodiac. They climb mountains – literally and metaphorically – and love their work. Just don't challenge them to a game unless you're ready for some serious competition. Up there competing with high end perfumes and fitting in just fine, may we add, our Oriental Lily is the Capricorn of Skye Candles’ Signature Collection.
