Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
In good company amongst Harry Styles, Elizabeth Olsen and Oprah Winfrey, a typical Aquarius is assertive, has an analytical mind and enjoys an easy-going outlook on life. Independent yet able to adapt to the energy around them, Aquarius folk balance a wide circle of friends whilst treasuring time alone in order to restore their power. It’s for this reason that Comfortable Silence by Herlum could be considered the perfect scent for Aquarius’ in your life.
With deep woody notes of sandalwood and black pepper, this plant-based wax and fine fragrance oil candle is designed for moments of solitude that feel intrinsically restorative and peaceful, not lonely. Light on a Friday night at home whilst appreciating the safety and bliss that can be found in restoring your energy levels in soothing seclusion, and take a moment to bathe in the knowledge that your own company is golden.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Empathetic, romantic and imaginative: your friendly Pisces pals are the old souls and artists of the world. Adept at creatively expressing themselves and oftentimes poetic and lyrical, this water sign feels deeply and is prone to a dose of escapism when the going gets tough. Whilst their imagination is in part their power, Pisces may need bringing back down to earth in times of overwhelm or when led by their emotions in love and lust.
Vyrao’s Rose Marie candle makes a case as the perfect choice in this instance, formulated with violet leaf absolute for self-expression, patchouli for grounding and guaiac wood for energy clearing. Designed to represent love and enlightenment, Rose Marie brings a welcome sense of balance and clarity into your home, with the intention behind every Vyrao candle to help connect us to ourselves and our feelings, and raise our energetic field. Lean in Pisces.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
Motivated, passionate and not afraid to shy away from the spotlight, those in the Aries zodiac are honest, driven and generous to their core. Determined to succeed and competitive in both the boardroom and the local pub quiz, Aries know their own minds inside out, and oftentimes act first and think later.
CasaCarta’s Bee ceramic candle therefore makes the perfect addition to the home of an Aries, symbolising the buzzing of their courageous and energetic personality and encouraging a moment of pause thanks to its woody aroma and touch of exotic spice. Founder, Misty Minton, started Casacarta after searching for memorable, standout interiors that were also functional for everyday use, with the same noteworthy characteristics being true of the Aries in your life.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Sensual pleasure seekers with an affinity for organisation and self improvement, Taurus are loyal and heartfelt friends and lovers. They rule the Second House of Self-Worth and Income which involves material possessions and the experience we have of our immediate environment and five senses. As a result, the home of a Taurus is their happy place, allowing them to lean into stability and routine and avoid their nemesis: change. An afternoon curled up on the sofa with a book they know and love along with a comforting mug of tea is their idea of heaven.
Eym and LagunaB’s Soul refillable candle creates a welcome, enriching moment in your day, filling any space with a 100% natural fragrance using aromatherapy blends for a positive, therapeutic effect on emotional wellbeing. Soul is known for its sensual and uplifting properties, making it the perfect choice for loving and romantic Taurus.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
Playful and curious, Geminis may not be known for their sentimental tendencies, but instead exude youthfulness, energy, and an infectious sense of humour. The social butterflies of the zodiac, Geminis are most often found in and amongst the hubbub of a dinner party or the last on the dance floor thanks to their seemingly endless social battery.
When Geminis are at home, they seek stimulus 24:7-whether it be a place to read, write or create- this sign is rarely found sitting still. For a scent as memorable as the vivacious Geminis in your life, and with a burn time of 60 hours (enough to rival their everlasting energy), Earl of East’s Flower Power Sunflower Candle makes for the perfect match. With an addictive combination of sweet violet, powdery peony, and black tea, this sunflower wax, fragrance and essential oil based candle is sure to bring some harmony into the world of any ebullient Gemini.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Highly intuitive, self-protective and nurturing, Cancers may appear to have a hard exterior (similar to that of the crab that represents their sign), but in reality possess qualities of gentleness and compassion that attract lovers and friends who love them for their emotional availability. Cancers adore welcoming others into their homes, creating a safe and beautiful space in which everyone is encouraged to show up as their most authentic self.
Plum & Ashby’s Vetiver and Lavender Candle is the perfect choice for the home of a Cancer, with its well-balanced fragrance perfectly representing the duality of the Cancer sign. With mid notes of Lavender, Jasmine, Ylang-Ylang, Camomile and base notes of Woods, Vetiver, Musk, Patchouli and Moss, its scent takes inspiration from nature, and the restorative effects of British landscapes. Both calming and distinctive, Vetiver and Lavender matches the nuance of the Cancer sign absolutely.
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Natural born leaders who ooze confidence and a mesmerising effervescence, those within the Leo zodiac are most often found in the spotlight. Lovers of maximalism and not afraid of bold design choices, the home of a Leo is effortlessly filled with personality and is memorable for all the right reasons.
Consider a colourful choice a safe bet for a Leo, making CasaCarta’s Multicolour Scallop candle the most apt selection of all. Hand poured with eco soy wax the woody, rich scent of this single wick sandalwood candle fills a room with a distinctive warmth that matches the energy of a fiery Leo to perfection.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Logical, practical and almost always perfectionists, Virgo’s detail oriented and hardworking tendencies impact everything they do. Their kind and gentle spirit makes them the kind of supportive friend you can rely on in a crisis- just know their help may come in the form of practical guidance only.
Step out of the details and day-to-day nitty gritty that a typical Virgo may find themselves stuck in, and take a deep healing breath whilst lighting ALPINE by Evermore London - a Glassette exclusive collaboration. Designed to evoke the sweet smells of an alpine forest and the simple beauty of a long walk through tall pine trees, under a canopy of clouds with the wind rippling through the greenish-blue needles.
Hand-poured in the UK in a reusable jar made from part-recycled glass, it is the perfect candle to take you from the cold winter months into the fresh days of early spring.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
Lovers of equilibrium in every sense of the word, your local Libra will strive to find balance in all areas of their life. Ruled by the planet of love, Venus, Libras are naturally sociable and will often be found surrounded by a large group of friends, or jumping from one romantic relationship to the next, helped by their natural subtlety, wit, and mystique. Libras gain their sense of identity from those they surround themselves with, so consider their home a busy one full of love, laughter and spontaneity.
Perfect for the at-home dinners that turn into 2am conversations in a dark and cosy corner, Eros by CYRE prompts relaxed inhibitions and broadens sensations- most appealing for the ever flirtatious and mesmerising Libra. An intoxicating mingling of dirty florals, sweet grass and thin smoke, the spirit of hedonism is captured in this CYRE candle. The signature hand blown vessel can be repurposed to create a second life for your item.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Often mistaken as a fire sign because of their passionate, enigmatic personalities, Scorpios in fact fit into the realm of water signs alongside protective Cancer and dreamy Pisces.
As a fixed sign (aka, falling in the middle of a season, in their case autumn), they crave stability and routine. Whether it be a non negotiable morning routine or planning their week around work and wellness goals that help feed high vibration energy, Scorpios live for a routine that leaves them feeling motivated and in control. Operating a few steps ahead of the crowd, those born in Scorpio season are often found planning ways to gain control of a situation and ensure their desired outcome, all whilst maintaining an air of effortless mystery.
Matching their passionate and powerful personalities, Scorpios of the world may have met their match in Homework’s Haze Candle. Evoking vagueness and obscurity of the mind and perception, the sweet green blend of tobacco, clary sage and ho leaf creates a captivating scent reminiscent of a morning stroll in a misty forest. The simplicity of nature’s healing benefits may offer a welcome pause for Scorpio’s constantly striving to achieve their next goal.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Optimistic, spontaneous and naturally hilarious, those born during Sagittarius season could be considered the most engaging conversationalists of the zodiac. Honest yet open minded, they attract friends and lovers thanks to their magnetic humour and passion for knowledge- their interest in learning knows no bounds. Wanderlust fuels the heart of every Sagittarius, with a deep rooted desire to explore the world and open their mind to its many lessons.
For the wandering Sagittarius, Vyrao’s Wonder candle is the most apt choice of all, transporting you to warmer Mediterranean climates with notes of mandarin and orange flower absolute, intoxicating night-flowering jasmine and vanilla, interlaced with sandalwood and musk. Consider your wanderlust temporarily satisfied.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
The overachievers of the zodiac, Capricorns are highly motivated and hold high standards for both themselves and those around them. The Capricorn connection to Saturn- a symbol of restraint and restriction- means they can at times appear overly analytical or emotionally distant, highlighting the importance of a failsafe relaxation routine in which mindfulness becomes the priority. Practices such as journaling and meditation can be serving for Capricorn’s who feel resistance to checking in with their emotional state, offering a necessary pause that ultimately helps contribute to achieving their sky high goals.
Super Normal Candles Parsley Seed Essential Oil Candle is here to help those who put rest at the bottom of their to-do list, with its soothing, freshly scent formulated specifically to promote relaxation. Made with 100% pure essential oils, natural soy wax and cotton wicks, its fragrance notes of parsley seed, bergamot and ylang ylang create an instant feeling of zen no matter how busy your day.
