Fragrances of the Zodiac: Cancer Edition
Hey everyone! It's time again for another edition of Fragrances of the Zodiac. We're a tad late this month but don't worry! It's not too late to get the Cancer in your life the perfect fragrance for them, based on their zodiac sign.
Cancers are sensitive souls, who often love art, a good meal, and deep, caring emotional connections. Unlike the dark and intense Scorpio later in the year, a Cancer as a water sign is a little more of a homebody or a homemaker — think the stereotypical Mom friend. They're all about making sure the people they care about are being emotionally supported, and they expect that emotional support in return. Ruled by the Moon, they're also a little more prone to mood swiings than other signs.
To me, notes and accords appropriate for a Cancer, and that I think a Cancer would love, include classic romantic notes like roses and musk, as well as aquatic notes like sea, water, and salt notes.
Here are a selection of fragrances that I think would work really well for Cancers:
1) Montale Roses Musk by Montale
I'm a big fan of this fragrance, because it's one of the purest rose-musk blends out there. It's super romantic for a date night scent, and I think Cancers will appreciate the simplicity and warmth that it gives off!
2) Skin Musk by Parfums de Coeur
Skin Musk by Parfums de Coeur is a really interesting, simple fragrance that, of course, is meant to evoke musk. I like this one especially to layer under other fragrances, so this would be great for a Cancer who's already interested in perfume and wants to do something a little more complex with their fragrances.
3) Bod Man Fresh Blue Musk by Parfums de Coeur
Now, I'm not going to forget about the guys here — and I really like Parfums de Coeur as a brand. They sort of specialize in inexpensive fragrances for men and women, and the Bod Man line in particular is really popular among guys. This one is really creamy and musky, and I think it works well for Cancer guys.
4) Acqua di Gio by Giorgio Armani
Another men's fragrance that I really like for Cancers is Acqua di Gio by Armani. I think this one works best for sportier cancer guys, especially during the summer. Notes of coriander, jasmine, and bergamot are some of the scents that come together to make up this gorgeous aquatic scent, and to me it reminds me of an attractive man in swimwear.
All right, that's all for this sign! Next up will be Leo at the end of this month, so Lions, keep an eye out for that one!
