    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.

    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'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.

    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 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.

    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)

    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.
