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.
    It could certainly work from a marketing point of view...

    For the record, I am Pisces and I cannot stand most Aquatics!

    So yes, it's bunkum.

    The scents that fits your personality, have nothing to do with the element to which your sign belongs

    At first it does seem like a good opportunity to capitalize on the gullible, especially if there's some implicit promise of the scent magically boosting some set of characteristics associated with a zodiac sign. But it's actually counterintuitive for the reason you mentioned. What if an Aries thinks that their designated scent smells vile and they want Leo instead? A smarter move might be to create a "zodiac" line, complete with the marketing tosh that you might expect, but each scent purchased could come with twelve sticky labels, and that way you choose the scent you like and then stick whatever zodiac you want on it. Also, if you go off the scent a bit and decide to give it away, just replace the label with that of the recipients chosen/allocated sign, and bingo, a new zodiac fragrance is born.

    Wouldn't be difficult at all to match scents to zodiac signs, it depends on how much you believe in zodiac characteristics or understand them or how personal they are to you . But it wouldnt be hard at all and I think it would be accurate enough

    i.e. Arnold Schwarzenegger is a typical Leo. He likes power, he likes the spot light, he likes luxury, his extroverted i guess. He wouldn't wear something like Musc Ravageur that is risky and may make him lose face, on the other had Aventus would be perfect. Its a powerfull, luxurious, scent that demands respect etc.

    Leonardo Di Caprio is a Scorpio, also a powerful sign but very introverted sign, deep, hidden, sensitive , its the type of sign that doesn't like the spot light a great deal but is nevertheless a veyr deep and intense sign. So whats deep and intense with out being too extroverted ?? etc etc and so on and so on.

    Some signs are a bit more airy, flighty, superficial, so it's easy to match really and I think wouldnt' be that far off the mark.

    And by the way Napolean was a leo....Aventus all the way

    It might be accurate for those more into Zodiac signs than fragrance - I certainly don't see it working for me as my stuff is totally across the spectrum and will remain that way (and I'm not a Gemini)

    You see, I'm a Leo and I'm the polar opposite to those characteristics. I want a new sign :P

    As a Capricorn I prefer to pick perfumes using the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator. Today I'm wearing Rochas Femme.

    If you really wish to go down the road of zodiac signs, there is a book about perfumes that does just that http://www.amazon.co.uk/Perfume-Zodi.../dp/1853754056

    Zodiac? Don't be ridiculous.

    Everyone knows its all about precepts of the Chinese zodiac, blood type, extispication, phrenology and rolfing.

    Ok i did some research and according to my zodiac signs (Sun in Taurus/Virgo Rising sign), i should be into masculine florals. But that's not the case. Honestly i don't believe in astrology/zodiac but imo astrology has some entertainment value.

    It's a nice and fun idea and don't let some rude snobbish people who have't enough sense to understand the idea of the tread tell you otherwise. Not every zodiac under the same sign will have similar tastes but most may, you never know. I'm a Scorpio and I love a wide variety of fragrances but not the dark, overpowering, too earthy and pungent smells. Oh and I don't like many of the aquatics either so that cuts out the water sign and aquatic fragrance relation for me.

    PS. I prefer the chinese horoscope, much better IMO.

    Jennifer Lawrence is a Leo and I think her favorite scent is Interlude Man. Don't know how many spritz she had but she again fell on the red carpet.

    Love her.

    It's nice but too weak for me as well, I prefer the ones that are soft but with a mild to strong silage.
