Did you know you can choose your fragrances based on your zodiac sign?
If not, well, you're in the right place to know about it!
After sharing the best fragrances for Fire and Air signs, we now move on to the best perfumes for Earth and Water signs. These are also known as nocturnal, yin, negative, feminine and even-numbered signs of the zodiac.
TAURUS (April 21 to May 21)
The earth sign Taurus loves comforting scents. Earthy scents will keep the ambitious Taurus grounded. Try Emily Weiss' Glossier You fragrance -- a soothing concoction of warm musk mallow and iris root. It is described as something "wildly familiar and sexy like the smell of your boyfriend's neck after wearing cologne all day."
Taurus also gives in to luxurious and sensual scents like Vanilla. Try candy-like scents like Prada Candy Night that smells like chocolate, or a less intimidating vanilla-infusion like Juliette Has a Gun Vanilla Vibes. Ellis Brooklyn Sci-Fi is a concoction of earthy and vanilla scents for the best fragrance for the Taurus sign.
CANCER (June 22 to July 22)
Cancer is known for its loyalty, so they are likely to stick to a signature scent. Try fragrances that are nostalgic like Diptyque's L'eau de Neroli that smells of warm and familiar, old holiday memories.
Coconut and Lily of the Valley fragrances also suit the traits of the Cancer sign. Try Ariana Grande's new fragrance Thank U, Next or be inspired by the utterly feminine scent of Mugler Les Exceptions Wonder Bouquet. If those scents are too strong, opt for a balance of floral and musk like the fragrance Miu Miu Twist.
VIRGO (August 23 to September 22)
Virgo is gentle and kind, making floral scents work well with them. Try a sophisticated feminine scent like Ralph Lauren Woman, or a clean scent infused with Cedarwood for the sign that likes to take control.
Try warm woods and soft familiar floral scents like Kai*Rose Eau De Parfum or Hermès Un Jardin sur la Lagune.
SCORPIO (October 23 to November 21)
Scorpio is passionate and emotional, so a seductive scent like musk is the most wearable fragrance for this sign. It's also soothing, which makes it a good fragrance to tone down the intensity of Scorpio.
Try a daytime scent like Pure Musc for Her by Narciso Rodriguez, a soft and powdery scent or try a flirtatious fragrance like Huda Beauty Kayali Musk 12.
CAPRICORN (December 22 to January 20)
Realistic and sensitive Capricorn are keen to find the finest scent. Try a sumptuous bottle of Lost Cherry Tom Ford Perfume , a new heady floral fragrance of Turkish rose and jasmine Sambac for those who want the finer things in life.
If you're not a fan of florals, try the masculine scent of Vetiver like Maison Louis Marie No.04 Bois de Balincourt Eau de Parfum that combines amber and sandalwood.
PISCES (February 19 to March 20)
Pisces are mysterious and spiritual. Try a frankincense fragrance like Vitruvi Frankincense Essential Oil for simplicity or a more extravagant concoction for dreamers like Goutal Nuit et Confidences Eau De Parfum.
