ARIES (March 21 - April 20)
Traits: adventurous, energetic, courageous, enthusiastic, confident, quick-witted, impulsive, aggressive, feisty, passionate
Ralph Lauren 1 ($42, Sephora)
Fragrance notes: grapefruit and blue lotus
Fragrance Horoscope: This sporty, fun fragrance appeals to the Aries woman’s sense of adventure. This feisty fire sign is confident and daring (the first one to jump off the high dive) but with a soft feminine side (in a frilly bikini). The Aries woman is fearless -- a natural born leader (and maybe a bit of a daredevil), so it’s not a surprise that the Influenster Aries woman is drawn to Ralph Lauren 1, a bright fragrance that celebrates life's big adventures.
TAURUS (April 21 - May 21)
Traits: loyal, strong, patient, in charge, reliable, warm, loving, persistent, determined, self-indulgent
Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue ($58, Sephora)
Fragrance notes: Sicilian citron, bluebell, granny smith apple, jasmine sambac, bamboo, white rose, cedarwood, amber, musk.
Fragrance Horoscope: The Taurus woman has mellow patience in spades -- she is warm and loving and intensely loyal. Because she’s an earth sign, she’s really grounded and down to earth. Is it any surprise then that the Influenster Taurus woman loves Dolce and Gabbana Light Blue? It’s a deep, true fragrance marked by charming notes of rose, feminine jasmine, and fresh bamboo, plus earthy notes of cedarwood, amber, and musk. The Taurus woman is determined and career-minded, but she’s not about to step on anyone to get where she’s going. She strong and sweet, just like Dolce and Gabbana Light Blue.
GEMINI (May 22 - June 21)
Traits: versatile, witty, intellectual, youthful, lively, superficial, cunning, dislikes boredom, needs to be stimulated, curious, outgoing, likes to be noticed
Gucci Guilty ($99, Sephora)
Fragrance notes: mandarin, pink pepper, peach, lilac, geranium, amber, patchouli
Fragrance Horoscope: The Gemini woman, whose symbol is The Twins, is all about duality and the versatile play between opposites: high brow vs. low brow; intellectual vs. playful; curious vs. superficial. The Influenster Gemini is drawn to Gucci Guilty -- a daring, sexy fragrance that has its own duality, pulsing with fruity notes of citrus and peach, plus floral notes of lilac and geranium. (And did you notice how much the Gucci logo looks like the Gemini sign?) Curious Gemini (who hates to be bored) loves this enticing, sexy fragrance that speaks to the thrill of the forbidden. And while it may start bright, floral, and fruity, it finishes with the rich, deep scents of amber and patchouli. The duality continues.
CANCER (June 22 - July 22)
Traits: emotional, imaginative, cautious, protective, moody, clingy, touchy, complicated, complex, homebody at heart, traditional, creative and artistic
Chanel Coco Mademoiselle ($75, Sephora)
Fragrance notes: bergamot, orange, jasmine, rose, patchouli, vetiver, white musks, vanilla.
Fragrance Horoscope: The Cancer woman has a creative, artistic soul -- so it’s no surprise that she’d be drawn to Chanel Coco Mademoiselle, a fragrance inspired by the spirit of a young Coco Chanel, the iconic fashion designer who brought Parisian glamour to the masses. Cancers are the dreamers of the zodiac (bright notes of orange, jasmine, and vetiver pique their interest), but remain most comfortable at home (exciting bergamot and patchouli helps them imagine worlds beyond their comfort zone). They are homebodies at heart and can be moody and complicated -- but what great artist isn’t, after all?
LEO (July 23 - August 21)
Traits: generous, creative, faithful, enthusiastic, warm, pompous, bossy, self-obsessed, needs freedom, arrogant
Versace Bright Crystal ($75, Sephora)
Fragrance notes: iced accord, yuzu, pomegranate, peony, magnolia, lotus flower, acajou, vegetal amber, musk
Fragrance Horoscope: The Leo women of Influenster LOVE Versace Bright Crystal, a sheer, sensual fragrance inspired by Donatella Versace’s favorite floral scents. Like the beautiful flowers captured in this scent, Leo likes to be looked at. Leos (The Lion) have a big presence -- they tend to turn heads when they walk into a room -- and love to be admired. Better yet, how about an audience of admirers? She is confident and enthusiastic -- maybe even a little arrogant. More wildflower than your garden-variety flora, don’t try to pin her down -- the Leo woman needs her freedom.
VIRGO (August 22 - September 23)
Traits: shy, meticulous, reliable, practical, analytical, fussy, worrier, perfectionist, nurturing
Viva La Juicy ($78, Sephora)
Fragrance notes: wild berries, mandarins, honeysuckle, gardenia, jasmine, amber, caramel, vanilla, sandalwood, praline
Fragrance Horoscope: The Virgo woman is the practical, analytical sign of the zodiac -- she’s the one who keeps lists and fusses over projects until everything is just so. She can be a perfectionist and a bit of a worrier, but she’s also incredibly nurturing to those she loves. But being reliable all the time means that when Virgo is ready to let loose, she REALLY goes for it. When the Influenster Virgo is looking to bust out of her (practical and reliable) shell a bit, she takes a calculated risk with Viva La Juicy, the daring scent by Juicy Couture. When she (finally) lets her hair down, she’s looking to shake things up and have some fun, maybe even taking things a little too far (did someone say shots?) to make up for how darn practical she is all of the time. Just for tonight, anyway.
LIBRA (September 24 - October 23)
Traits: diplomatic, romantic, charming, social, idealistic, peaceable, indecisive, flirtatious, self-indulgent, intellectual, jealous, committed, empathetic, balance and harmony
Bath and Body Works Pink Chiffon ($14, Bath and Body Works)
Fragrance notes: sparkling pear, peach nectar, wild berries, tiare flower, Jasmine Petals, Waterlily, Sheer Apple Blossom, Coconut Milk, Vanilla Orchid, Creamy Sandalwood, Chiffon Musk
Fragrance Horoscope: The Libra woman is the most charming sign in the zodiac -- she is social and affectionate, with a big group of friends. This diplomatic air sign is the peacemaker in the group. She hates to make waves (and tip the scales) and is set on getting everyone to like her -- which means she can be a bit of a flirt. The Influenster Libra is drawn to Bath and Body Works Pink Chiffon, a universally appealing scent that balances the soft scent of pear and peach with vanilla and sandalwood. It appeals to Libra’s feminine and flirtatious side, with just a hint of romance, and easily flows and flutters with her -- the eternal social butterfly.
SCORPIO (October 24 - November 22)
Traits: determined, emotional, passionate, magnetic, jealous, compulsive, secretive
Victoria’s Secret Noir Tease
Fragrance notes: Mandarin, lychee, frozen pear, red delicious apple, Sweet pea, jasmine, gardenia, freesia, magnolia, benzoin laos, vanilla, musk, praline, amber, sandalwood
Fragrance Horoscope: The Scorpio woman is emotional and passionate -- she is a lover and a fighter -- so we weren’t surprised at all to learn that the Influenster Scorpio loves Victoria’s Secret Noir Tease. This is a boudoir-inspired fragrance, meant to seduce and tease. Notes of sandalwood, jasmine, blooming magnolia, and black vanilla combine in this sultry, coquettish scent. The Scorpio woman loves to play games (and can be a bit jealous), but it’s her dynamic, magnetic personality that has you coming back for more.
SAGITTARIUS (November 23 - December 22)
Traits: optimistic, good-humored, honest, wise, restless, straightforward, active, wanderlust, travel, brave, daring, open-minded
Michael Kors Eau De Parfum ($66, Sephora)
Fragrance notes: blue orris, peony, earthy vetiver.
Fragrance Horoscope: The Sagittarius is wise but restless -- she likes new challenges, experiences, and places that expand her worldview. The Influenster Sag channels this wanderlust through Michael Kors Signature Eau De Parfum, inspired by the iconic designer’s travels through London, Shanghai, St. Tropez, and Capri. It’s a bold combination of worldly scents -- from creamy florals and sensual woods to exotic incense. This brave yet sophisticated combo helps Sag quench her thirst for adventure -- no wonder this has become her signature scent.
CAPRICORN (December 23 - January 20)
Traits: practical, prudent, self-disciplined, driven, humorous, reserved, patient, loyal, realistic
Donna Karan DKNY Be Delicious ($92, Ulta)
Fragrance notes: apple, cucumber, grapefruit, candid magnolia, tuberose, white muguet, rose, violet, sandalwood, tender skin accord, blonde woods, white amber
Fragrance Horoscope: The Capricorn woman does not let those everyday annoyances get to her -- she’s driven to succeed and sees challenges along the way as puzzles she’s delighted to work out. Capricorns are sensible and realistic -- what you see is what you get. Inspired by New York City, Donna Karan’s Be Delicious is a bright, invigorating scent that the Influenster Capricorn loves. Caps know how to self-discipline and buckle down to complete a project, but need to be reminded to take a break once in a while. Apples, cucumbers, and exotic flowers combine in this straightforward, refreshing scent that help keep Caps energized. Like the Big Apple itself, Caps are straightforward with a sense of humor about life’s challenges.
AQUARIUS (January 21 - February 19)
Traits: friendly, humanitarian, spontaneous, worldly, loyal, honest, independent, unemotional, detached, unpredictable
Chance by Chanel ($80, Sephora)
Fragrance notes: patchouli, musk, vetiver, orris, vanilla, jasmine
Fragrance Horoscope: Aquarius is the spontaneous, unpredictable sign in the zodiac. Last minute flight to Mexico? Sounds great! Move to South Africa on a whim? Even better! It seemed fitting, then, when we learned that the Influenster Aquarius is most drawn to Chance by Chanel -- a surprising scent that was inspired by legendary fashion designer Coco Chanel’s belief in the power of chance. The unexpected combo of florals from around the globe (patchouli, jasmine, orris) speak to the Aquarius need for constant stimulation, travel, and adventure.
PISCES (February 20 - March 20)
Traits: imaginative, sensitive, sympathetic, escapist, constant renewal and reinvention, artistic, imaginative, can be scatterbrains
Coach Poppy Flower Eau De Parfum
Fragrance notes: cucumber flower petals, mandarin, baby freesia buds, jasmine, pink water lily, southern gardenia, rose petals, crème brûlée, cedarwood, bleached sandalwood, vanilla, whipped marshmallow
Fragrance Horoscope: The Pisces woman has a lively imagination -- she’s always dreaming up new ways to have fun and what she wants her next adventure or job to be. Because she can be an escapist, she can be seen as a bit of a scatterbrain -- but it’s just that so many things appeal to her at once. It can be hard for Pisces to focus on any one thing for too long -- which is why she needs a scent that will appeal to her many diverse tastes. Influenster Pisces is drawn to Coach Poppy Flower Eau De Parfum, a fun scent that combines seemingly disparate notes of marshmallow, rose petals, freesia, and sandalwood together for a complex arrangement that is youthful, fun, spirited scent that surprises and changes as the day goes on. It's a complicated, imaginative combination -- just like Pisces.
