Your star sign if it was a candle


Home scents are always necessary when setting a vibe, and what's more energetically synchronised than you and your astrological self? Deciphering said vibe can often be a challenge, so why not lean into something that reflects your energy. Here, we're listing which candle is best suited to your star sign Which is clearly based on nothing but cold, hard, facts.


Aquarius (20 January – 18 February)

Progressive, original, independent, humanitarian.


Aquarians are known for their uniqueness and individuality, which is what makes the polarising and un-pin-down-able scent of Glossier You their olfactory soulmate. Famously eschewing a top note to make the scent ambiguously unique to each who smells it, Glossier You incorporates notes of Iris, Pink Pepper and Ambrette to create a fresh, warm and slightly spicy scent.


Pisces (19 February – 20 March)

Compassionate, artistic, intuitive, gentle, wise.

MAISON BALZAC Bonne Nuit Candle

Dreamy and inoffensive, the creative and imaginative Pisces would be Maison Balzac's Bonne Nuit candle. Aromatic and calm, with hints of lavender to ease you into your evening of maladaptive daydreaming and manifestations.


Aries (21 March – 19 April)

Courageous, determined, confident, enthusiastic, passionate.

BINU BINU Korean Kiln Sauna Candle

Fresh and direct, a Virgoan dream. Let the crisp scents of mountainous forests bring you calmness and clean serenity. Inspired by teh scent of traditional kiln saunas in Korea, this candle carries the heady scent of pine, juniper, birch, hay and firewood, all in a beautiful and tough stainless steel vessel. The perfect way to simultaneously calm and stoke your Aries fire.


Taurus (20 April – 20 May)

Reliable, patient, practical, devoted, responsible, stable.

DIPTYQUE Figuier Verte Candle

For the grounded and steady, let the Scent of the Mediterranean anchor you to earth. Clad with the woody scent of fig trees, Taurus – drawn to love, beauty, hedonism, and physical pleasures – will be intoxicated by its warm, green scent and delicate, mouth-blown green vessel.


Gemini (21 May – 20 June)

Gentle, affectionate, curious, adaptable.

GLASSHOUSE Last Run In Aspen Candle

Sophisticated and with a taste for the finer things in life, Geminis will love this subtle cool scent from Glasshouse's winter collection. With notes or rose, lily of the valley, oud and dry amber, it's an olfactory experience both exhilarating and soothing, but either way it certainly brings the drama.


Cancer (21 June – 22 July)

Tenacious, highly imaginative, loyal, emotional, sympathetic, persuasive.

JO MALONE English Pear & Freesia Candle

Leo (23 July – 22 August)

Creative, passionate, generous, warm-hearted, cheerful, humorous.

TOM FORD Fucking Fabulous Candle

The name really says it all, doesn't it? Leos are the kind of people drawn to a statement – and Tom Ford's explicit, exclusive and fabulous scent is intoxicating and attention-demanding. Amber leather and sultry bitter almond and vanilla combine to create a unique and confident home scent for the roaring Leos among us.

Virgo (23 Augus – 22 September)

Resourceful, brave, passionate, stubborn, a true friend.

A24 X JOYA Genre Candle in Noir

Dark, spicy, velvety and nostalgic, A24 x Joya's Genre candle in 'Noir' is about as seductive as they come.
