    Default zodiac sign perfume

    What do you guys think about using perfumes that adapt to your zodiac sign? Any of you have this in mind?

    It's a novel idea, ckcampus - is someone using it as a marketing tool?

    If so, I'll still pass thanks because it just depends on the day, or whatever samples have arrived, for me to make a choice on what to wear.

    Ok, my question is this: there are thousands of perfumes divided into categories like, oriental,aromatic, spicy, etc., you like a scent and hate others who in turn are loved by others, can I shorten the search of a perfume that suits me if I will start rejecting those who will have less likelihood of like if I know what kind of notes should I look for in a perfume?

    If you know what notes you like it can help but sometimes a perfumer will compose a scent using a note that never appealed before with unusual results, so testing is really the way to find out what might be suitable.

    Never thought about fragrance in association with my zodiac sign honestly.

    It's a better idea than the current Blood Concept range of fragrances that are selling. From a marketing point of view I'm sure it could be a winner with people buying it for peoples birthday. I think it would appeal to the public more than fragrance afficionados here on basenotes.

    My idea is not to advise me any brand of perfume in particular, but which group I would like more, such as, oriental, citrus, spicy, leather, etc.: I'm Sagittarius and there will be others with the same sign; the idea was to see if there were trends among various groups of signs and aromas, for example if Leo guys like leather scents,etc, but it seems that was not a good idea ...

    I think it's a silly concept and nobody will take it seriously. There may a be a little entertainment value to it though.

    I am not familiar with zodiac personality traits, so I wouldn't know how to give suggestions. How are Sagittari supposed to be?

    For what it's worth, I am a Taurus, I like heavy and classic scents, leathers and animalics.

    I did see this in the old John Oakes book way back. I am Pieces and have the horror of aquatics and being a water sign no doubt that is what I will get.

    I'm Sagittarius too & I like all sorts - except aquatics & candy floss or super sickly stuff - but that's most likely just personal preference.

    I agree with Jack re. appeal of the marketing angle 'though.

    The whole Zodiac worship is ridiculous to me. They state generalities like intelligent, cunning, loyal, blah, blah, blah. They're qualities we all like to believe we have. It's an ego stroking. So to base a perfume off an already idiotic and incompetent gage of personality traits is absurd to put it politely. It's akin to following fortune cookie blabbings.

    You also need a line tailored to the Chinese zodiac if you want to really capitalize.

    Have most likely used fragrances that possibly cover the entire spectrum of zodiacal signs. However, being Leo, I also notice to a strong preference for Mediterranean, citrus or otherwise "solar" fragrances.

    I think what would be better would be a range of fragrances named after the Gods of Olympus. So you would have a aquatic named after Poseidon God of the sea, Zeus we could have a Fougere, Aphrodite would be a wonderful name for a beguiling floral for women, Hercules a green and earthy scent. Etc lol

    I believe almost all of us use several types of fragrances, but there are those who marked us and those who just bought ... I will definitely not buy a cologne see on the Net which is indicated for Sagittarius but there were several Sagittarius guys who used a particular group of scents would be a clu

    I think this is an amazing idea. I think if a truly talented nose were to study the zodiac and create a perfume for each one that encompasses what each zodiac is like, it'd be out of this world.

    I don't believe Zodiac signs have an effect on individuals' sense of smell, tastes and dislikes. Nor do I believe Zodiac signs are anything more than complete bs. Hence, I don't see how a person's Zodiac sign is a factor in his/her perfume preferences.

    Cancer the Crab here!

    I couldn't tell you one thing about perfumery and zodiac signs, their associations, etc. what I do know is that my personality almost perfectly fits the Cancer description.

    As for perfume, I will always reach for a sweet fragrance first. This is my personal taste showing. On the flip side, I've fallen for Vetiver scents. I can't get enough of them! I don't prefer aquatics, but I will wear them. And I think Vetiver will be my go to scent this spring/summer.

    One scent I try to stay far away from...florals! I always get a physical reaction when wearing a floral dominant perfume....think Chanel Egoiste Platinum

    no i think this could work, you guys are missing the connection between zodiac characteristics and scent.

    i.e. take the star sign of leo : a scent that would suit a leo would be a powerhouse scent, a scent that is strong, makes a statement, even somewhat overbearing, leo's love the stage, they love to be heard. Now take scorpio who is much more introverted , dark and hidden. Adapt fragrance characteristics to zodiac characteristics and there you have it. Each zodiac sign would have a certain type of scent, some loud in your face, some very subdued, some sophisticated and some youthful, etc etc.
