The Best Candles For Your Zodiac Sign

The Best Candles For Your Zodiac Sign

Scent preference is personal and is the result of both nature and nurture. Maybe you had a bad experience with a lemon and now you can't stand the smell. Maybe sweet candles make you run for the hills! Maybe even a soothing lavender note is anything but soothing to you. Our life experiences definitely color our scent preferences and make it difficult to assign a particular scent note to a zodiac sign.

We think the best way to recommend a scent to each zodiac sign is to link them to a scent's personality and the way the scent "performs". We've chosen three different candles that showcase an element of each star sign so there's something for each and every type of sign!


♈ Aries (March 20-April 19)

Element: Fire 🔥
Zodiac Symbol: Ram 🐏

Aries are born leaders with bold and vibrant personalities. They have a naturally competitive nature and are always on the race to be "first". Their scents should be equally intense and energetic with bold top notes as those are the ones first to hit the nose! 

Candle Recommendations: 

Dolly's effervescent top notes of grapefruit and juicy peach leave a quick but lasting impression sure to appeal to an Aries' vibrant nature. 

Tanya! packs a huge top note punch with zesty bergamot and lemon. A powerful note of green cypress leaves a lasting impression.
