The Best Candle for you Based on Your Zodiac Sign

The Best Candle for you Based on Your Zodiac Sign

Jessica Hong

Are you the kind of person who’s skeptical about astrology, or are you constantly reading your horoscope and checking CoStar? Either way, astrology can be a fun way to connect with others and learn a bit more about yourself! Each zodiac sign is unique, and the same goes for fragrance. Here’s what Apotheke fragrance you are based on your astrological sign! Don’t forget to check your moon and rising sign to find out your astrology fragrance trio :)

(Of course if you love a scent that doesn’t match what we chose down below, that’s totally okay!)

Aries, March 21 - April 19: Firewood

Aries is the leader of the zodiac and is the first of the 12 signs. They have a warm, infectious personality and are extremely passionate about anything they put their mind to. No wonder Aries is a fire sign! Firewood matches an Aries energy perfectly - warm notes of cardamom, nutmeg, and bergamot mix with dark notes of birch tar, patchouli, and sandalwood, while cedarwood and amber create the perfect moment, reminiscent of a crackling fire.

Taurus, April 20 - May 20: Cardamom Chestnut

Taurus is hard working, down to earth, and an extremely loyal friend. As soon as a Taurus makes a decision, they stick to it, so it can be hard to change their mind! Feeling comfortable in their surroundings is extremely important to a Taurus- so a warm fragrance like Cardamom Chestnut will make them feel extra cozy at home. Notes of roasted chestnuts, creamy vanilla, and warm woods come together for the perfect indulgence. Looking for something extra luxurious? A Concrete Candle would be a perfect gift!

Gemini, May 21 - June 20: Orange Blossom Neroli

Hello, social butterfly! A Gemini can talk to anyone and everyone, and has no problem meeting new people and making friends wherever they go. Orange Blossom Neroli matches their fresh and playful vibe- it’s an inviting scent that you can’t ignore. Sweet orange flower and revitalizing neroli blend with notes of delicate greens, sandalwood, and a touch of musk to create a refreshing fragrance.

Cancer, June 21 - July 22: Blackberry Honey

Cancers are sweet, gentle, and the most thoughtful zodiac sign. Yes, on Instagram they’re labeled as the cry baby - but it’s only because they care! A Cancer feels most comfortable when they’re with their closest loved ones. A Blackberry Honey candle would be a great housewarming or holiday gift, with notes of sweet berries, creamy coconut drizzled in decadent honey, caramel, vanilla and maple.

Leo, July 23 - August 22: Sea Salt Grapefruit

Everyone has a Leo in their lives that they can’t live without. Leo’s are said to be the life of the party, and it’s because they have a natural aura that people gravitate towards. (Especially if you have a Leo rising in your natal chart!) If you’re a Leo or if you’re shopping for your Leo bestie, a Sea Salt Grapefruit candle is the way to go. If you’re feeling bougie, any Leo would love a 4-wick!

Virgo, August 23 - September 22: White Vetiver

Virgo is an earth sign, and is considered as the perfectionist of the zodiac. They don’t settle for anything but the best, and it’s because they work hard and deserve it. The same goes for fragrance, and White Vetiver is definitely Virgo- Approved. Cashmere, eucalyptus, and lilac are intertwined with earthy vetiver, sandalwood, and amber for a high end, elevated, and dynamic fragrance.

Libra, September 23 - October 22: Birchwood Apple

Libra’s are all about balance and making sure everyone is having a good time. If they’re the one hosting the next party, you can bet that they’re staying up all night to make sure they have something that everyone will love. Birchwood Apple is a great candle for a Libra, since it’s the perfect balance of fruity and woody scent notes! Libra’s are also known to be indecisive because they love exploring every different option- so if you’re looking for the perfect gift, we’d recommend a votive gift set or advent calendar.

Scorpio, October 23 - November 21: Charcoal

Scorpios get a bad rep, especially on Instagram… but we love a Scorpio here at Apotheke! They’re independent and often labeled as mysterious, but it’s because they don’t crave anyone else's approval. Scorpio is Charcoal - which is our best selling, broody, fan favorite scent. It may look a bit intimidating with its dark black wax and vessel, but once you smell it, we’re sure you’ll love Charcoal as much as we do. (Try it in a reed diffuser or in your Pura device as well- it’s a game changer!)

Sagittarius, November 22 - December 21: Charred Fig

There’s no one funnier or friendlier than a Sagittarius! When you’re hanging out together, it’s 100% guaranteed that you’ll have the best time. They’re go-getters who always have an upbeat and optimistic attitude. Charred Fig feels bright, cheerful, and can make anyone smile, just like Sagittarius. Wild fig leaf and crisp ambers combine with hints of neroli and cashmere woods to create an earthy yet sweet fragrance.

Capricorn, December 22 - January 19: Black Cypress

Nothing would get done without a Capricorn! They are ambitious, hardworking, and like to play by their own rules. A woody, earthy scent to light at the end of a long day will help keep them grounded, like Black Cypress. Black Cypress is complemented with a woody sage undertone to create the essence of a majestic forest.

Aquarius, January 20 - February 18: Cedarwood Ginger

Aquarius is the most unique zodiac sign of them all- and oftentimes, the most misunderstood. They’re clever, free spirited, and love to come with creative and original ideas. Aquarians deserve a fragrance that’s as dynamic as they are, like Cedarwood Ginger.Red tea and sharp ginger are accentuated by ripe figs and sweet coconut, while notes of patchouli and incense create an enchanting, full bodied, fragrance.

Pisces, February 19 - March 20: Earl Grey Bitters

If there’s one thing about Pisces, is that they enjoy being safe, comfortable, and familiar with their environment. They’re sensitive, trustworthy, and empathetic. An Earl Grey Bitters candle or body lotion can help Pisces feel calm and cozy at home, and doze off to dreamland. When lit, Earl Grey Bitters is the perfect scent when you need a little help to unwind.
