The ultimate perfume gift guide according to your sign (we had to)
Hey, hot stuff!
Holiday season is right around the corner (I’m sure you’ve noticed, since in every store, wreaths are already being hung). With Christmas, New Years, Hanukkah, and countless other holidays coming your way, it’s time to start thinking about gifts.
After trading in your summer crop tops for long and cozy sweaters, the closest thing to baring your skin is your aroma. And, there’s no better gift than perfume, really. It’s a good price range, it’s thoughtful and personal, and no one can ever have too much delicious smelling goodness!
If you need a little help to give something cute for your friend, sister, cousin, or coworker – we got you covered!
Here are our top picks for all 12 signs (aka, know your gift-recipient’s birthday prior to purchasing).
March 21 – April 19
The bonafide bombshell of the zodiac. You thrive on high engagement, loyalty, and impulse to set your ambitions going. Whether you’re single or taken, it’s easy for you to fall in love.
Because of your brazen boldness, you aren’t afraid to challenge anyone that stands in your way. Embrace the unapologetic badass in you with Betsey Johnson’s Pretty ‘N Punk!
April 20 – May 20
You radiate an energy that aims to capture attention. Whether it’s your taste in music, obsession with nice clothing, or a melodramatic love life, you constantly thirst for attention among strangers.
But, deep down, you never want to let anyone know how you really feel. Even if you lack a sense of tact, you also want everyone to see the best of your intentions. Indulge your inner saccharine sweetness with Pink Sugar.
May 21 – June 21
Everyone loves to hate you or they hate to love you (I know it sounds harsh, but this is written by a fellow Gemini). Your wit, intellect, charm, and larger than life extra-ness all deserve to shine this season. Not to forget, your legendary thirst trap game is piqued to match your hyper-curated taste in perfume, as you love to think highly of yourself.
With a price tag to match your high IQ, why not you max out your credit card with an Escentric Molecules perfume? Fun fact: This perfume adjusts to your pheromones for a maximum olfactory experience.
June 21 – July 22
Shrouded in mystery, nobody (except for your family, partner, and closest friends) knows how you really feel and think. A born conversationalist and bon vivant, you live to be social. Even if you are more introverted, you still have a streak of the social butterfly in you, as you like to enlighten people with your charming personality.
Whether you’re an altruistic angel or a daring devil, express yourself with Huda Beauty’s Kayali Elixir. Be warned: the waitlist is long, just like the amount of people who wanna befriend you.
July 23 – August 22
You live for the finer things in life and all of your friends know it. Not only do you radiate confidence, your presence is contagiously unforgettable.
Even if a price tag is less than three digits, it still has to look expensive. Rather than draping yourself in diamonds, rock the room in Pinrose’s Secret Genius shimmer perfume body spray.
August 23 – September 22
You may be equally cerebral as a Gemini, but you are steadier with your personality. Your quest for a picture perfect goal comes with a baggage of persistence, which makes you feel like your life is filled with consistencies.
Trying out new things isn’t exactly on the books; however, when you want to go on an adventure, you are fully committed to it. Let Le Labo’s spicy citrus-based Jasmin 17 bring out the inner adventurer in you.
September 23 – October 22
An eye for wellness, refined taste in beauty, and a strict skincare regimen – these traits make up at least 75% of your personality. While communication has never been the greatest of your strengths, you let your body do all the talking when you have nothing to say.
Made by a fellow Libra sister, Kim Kardashian West’s Body II is born to let you slay in the snow.
October 23 – November 21
Your introspective insight, intuition, and IDGAF attitude instantly draws attention. Your charisma is out of this world. Like a Leo, you live for the finest quality, but the only difference is that you revel in the pleasure of enjoying the moment, whether it’s eating your favorite food or putting on makeup.
When you’re all dolled up, dress codes are thrown out of the window. Live it up like the revolutionary that you are with Fresh’s Cannabis Santal.
November 22 – December 21
You are a free-spirited dreamer, thinker, and a wild soul who can’t be tamed. Your radical honesty, spontaneous energy, and fire-cracking attitude is bound to make heads turn. It doesn’t matter if you’re all dressed up in a sexy sweater dress or a modest turtleneck top, people want to lean in to hear your words.
Since winter isn’t the time to be seen in anything too skin-baring (thanks to the cold weather), flaunt your fashion finesse with Wild Spirit’s aromatic diffuser bracelet and perfume set in Chill!
December 22 – January 20
As the busy bees of the zodiac, your calendar is always booked up with work, social events, and, as of now, birthdays on Christmas and New Year’s. While you are often reserved, you never fail to surprise people in more ways than one whether it’s your sense of humor or eccentric fashion statements.
You may be stubborn at times, but that doesn’t stop anyone from seeing that you are fully equipped with a big heart. Flaunt your inner Steel Magnolia with Anine Bing’s Savage Rose.
January 21 – Feb 18
As the OGs of the zodiac, you are lovely social creatures who live to be surrounded by people. You also have an offbeat sense of life that defies expectations and bucks conventions.
You like to believe that you invented everything from the selfie to the hottest catchphrase. Made by the one and only fellow Aquarian sister, Paris Hilton, her self-titled fragrance is tailored for you.
February 19 – March 20
Last but not least, you are the style superstars of the zodiac. Like your Pisces sister, Rihanna, you like to experiment with shapes, silhouettes, and textures to create the outfit of your dreams.
Your calm and soothing voice always complements/contrasts with your outfit. Always the dreamer and goal-seeker, wear your imagination close to your heart with Ariana Grande’s Cloud.
