If you follow astrology, then you know that your zodiac sign can tell you a lot about your personality. Whether you're a fire sign or a water sign, a Libra or a Virgo, your sun sign can be the key to a lot of things you might not even realize, like how to best decorate your home, or which plants you're most compatible with (even if you aren't quite a green thumb!). And it's especially true with things like scent — everyone has a unique preference, so it makes sense that your sign could play a role in that too. To prove it, we matched up scented candles to the traits of each zodiac sign, so you can find just the right one for you.
Your Candle: Vanilla & Cinnamon
Why: Aries, you're a fire sign — not just because of your bold, fierce independence, but because of the warmth that radiates from within you, too. You need a candle that feels like a warm hug, and in this case, cinnamon represents your dynamic, competitive nature, while vanilla and black tea sweeten and soften things up.
Your Candle: Chandelier
Why: Taurus is the "treat yourself" sign, because they tend to be drawn to the finer things in life, but that doesn't mean they're not grounded or smart or ambitious (they are!). With notes of champagne (hello, luxury!), saffron, and leather, this candle will remind you both of lavish parties and library books, representing a Taurus perfectly.
Your Candle: Wild Prairie Rose
Why: As a Gemini, you're pretty much always changing things up. You have a multifaceted personality, which makes you extremely curious, creative, and versatile. Wild Prairie Rose represents all of the different facets of you because it's a candle packed full of surprising scents, from bergamot and pink peppercorn to geranium buds and amber — not to mention white musk, warm cedar, mandarin, and more.

Your Candle: Lavender Lemon
Why: Cancers are known for having a tough, prickly seeming exterior, but being sensitive and loyal once you get to know them. And that's exactly why the combination of lavender and lemon works so well for you — lemon for the bold bitterness people always assume, and lavender to represent your softer side.
Your Candle: Volcano
Why: If the zodiac signs were in a popularity contest, you, Leo, would likely win. You're bold, fire-y, and the life the party all the time. So you deserve a candle that can keep up, like the ever-popular Capri Blue candle in its "Volcano" scent — tropical fruits and citrus back up your fun, bold personality.
Your Candle: 9:27 AM Saturday
Why: You're the perfectionist of the zodiac, so first and foremost, you love the specificity of this candle's name. The fact that it smells like peach mimosas is just a bonus, and knowing you, you're likely to burn this candle at 9:27 am on a Saturday while drinking a peach mimosa and organizing your entire apartment.
Your Candle: Juniper Water & Aloe
Why: You're all about balance, Libra, so a candle that basically screams "peace and harmony" is exactly what you need. Aloe gives this candle a light, airy, fresh scent, while juniper water adds an earthy, musky, grounded touch to keep you from having your head in the clouds all the time.
Your Candle: Nightstorm
Why: A badass Scorpio like you gets a candle with a badass name, of course. Notes of blood orange represent your passion and fire, while sugared lemon represents both your tough and sweet sides. White tea rounds it out, because people often forget that you too can be sensitive and delicate.

Your Candle: Sweet Orange & Moroccan Spice
Why: You're one of the most optimistic signs of the zodiac, but that doesn't mean you're all sweet and no edge. Sweet orange fills the room with your positivity and brightness every time you light this candle, but spices like clove, coriander, nutmeg, and allspice give it a little kick to represent your independent, leader-prone ways.
Your Candle: Dwell
Why: Capricorn, you're stubborn and tend to overwork yourself, so you need a candle that will keep this earth sign grounded and relaxed. Eucalyptus, patchouli and iced pepper gives you the energy and focus you need, while notes like frosted lavender help you de-stress.
Your Candle: Lily
Why: As an Aquarius, you tend to be a bit of am ambivert. On the one hand, you're quiet and shy, but on the other, you're energetic and boisterous. Lily is a mostly floral scent, with lilies, jasmine, gardenias, and more — but it also has a little kick of spice with some cinnamon, and a hint of vanilla-y sweetness to show off each side of you.

Your Candle: Freshwater Pearl
Why: You're basically the mermaid of the zodiac, Pisces — gentle, empathetic, vibrant, and drawn to the water. Sea crystal, salt water, and crushed shells make this candle a beachy dream just for you, with a scent that's quiet and never overpowering.
