A Mother’s Day fragrance is the ultimate classic gift. However, we often run the risk of choosing a product that may not exactly meet her expectations, don’t we? In order to avoid such disappointments, let’s go back to some traditional, ancient help: Astrology! Then according to the American astrologer and poet Linda Goodman, we can count on some character traits that are attributed to each zodiac sign. We let hence our inspiration fly, and found the top fragrances that match the personalities of the twelve ladies of the zodiac just at their best!
The Aries Lady
March 21st – April 20th
Linda Goodman confirms the legendary nature of the Aries woman’s independence : “She can do almost anything if necessary“, which means that if your mother was born under this zodiac sign, you have certainly grown up with an energetic all-rounder personality, that always goes all the way out! Keeping an unusual urge for freedom and an unwavering optimism, she overcomes just every obstacle. Confident and tireless, idealistic and romantic, the Aries mother creates a world full of magic and imagination for her children, by educating them to be independent adults at once. Therefore: the passionately fruity, floral, and exciting aura of the Yves Saint Laurent Parisienne Eau de Parfum is perfectly made for her!
The Taurus Lady
April 21st – May 21st
Was your mother born in May? Then she is definitely a woman who can handle any situation! Open, down-to-earth, without tricks, courageous, and strong-minded, she takes people just as they are. Deeply honest and pragmatic, she loves everything that is “real” and is guided by her common sense without neglecting her pronounced sensual side. Balanced and dignified, she enjoys good cuisine like no other, and also has a soft spot for spicy, fruity fragrances! Our selection for her: A wonderfully exotic fragrance like the Dior Hypnotic Poison Eau de Parfum, which best reflects her characterful sensuality with a fine mixture of oriental, fruity, and floral notes!
The Gemini Lady
May 22nd – June 21st
Did your mother always tell you the greatest stories? Was she often lost in her thoughts, lost in her daydreams, maybe even fickle, but always ready for new adventures? Then you are definitely the happy child of an imaginative Gemini woman! And even if you still don’t know what kept her busy – until now she rather keeps these things to herself – you can be absolutely certain that she has a thoroughly romantic streak: a Gemini lady can be versatile, individualistic, and independent, but she will always remain pretty dreamy! A light, airy, and multifaceted fragrance like Roberto Cavalli Paradiso Eau de Parfum will immediately become her loyal companion!
The Cancer Lady
June 22nd – July 23rd
A rock, an oasis of calm, a great support: do all these qualities apply to your mother? Then you can count yourself lucky to be the child of a Cancer lady! With her caring love, her infinite patience, and her unimagined persistence, Cancer women are the consummate mothers, and give their loved ones the feeling of true faithfulness. From the outside, the woman of this zodiac sign often looks a bit shy and mysterious, but quite fascinating. She has a bright sense of humor and a sensitive nature that is happy to be pampered. With its delicate, fresh floral notes, and a discreet elegance, the Miu Miu L’Eau Bleue Eau de Toilette embodies the natural flair of this lady at its best!
The Leo Lady
July 24th – August 23rd
Absolutely sunny: The Leo woman is warm, clever, extroverted, lively … and loves to be in the spotlight! If your mother was born under this zodiac sign, then you have certainly grown up with a strong loving woman who likes to set the tone, owns a natural grandeur, and is completely convinced of herself! Independent by nature, the Leo mother leads her own life without ever allowing her children out of her sight: she spoils them, but also expects the appropriate discipline! Socially popular and admired, she appears gently, sometimes a little vain, and raves about everything that exudes glamour, without ever loosing her compassionate generosity. Under the spell of a bewitching, sunny jasmine, the luxurious Dior J’adore Eau de Parfum Absolu ist a gorgeous fragrance for her!
The Virgo Lady
August 24th – September 23rd
The Virgo woman has an incomparable determination, especially when it comes to finding true happiness, true love! According to the astrologist Linda Goodman, her romantic streak does not prevent her from being “devastatingly practical”. As a child of a Virgo lady, you will immediately recognize what is meant here: with a mysterious, waiting quietness, her innate perfectionism leaves nothing unfinished. She walks through life carefully, patiently, politely, and modestly, and looking always tastefully: For her, “beauty equals truth and truth equals beauty”! This happy, kind, caring woman loves the little things of everyday life, and will therefore fall for the delicate, floral freshness of the Estée Lauder Pleasures Eau de Parfum!
The Libra Lady
September 24th – October 23rd
A certain ambiguity accompanies the Libra woman wherever she goes. Her characteristic, ingenious logic, and her enviable judgment make her the perfect partner, and a mother who attentively listens. As a child of such a personality, she is probably still a great companion for you: someone who weighs everything impartially and as fairly as possible, always with a gentle smile. Emotional, loving and charming, but also energetic, the Libra woman has a contradiction in her that sometimes makes her appear somehow undecided. Her bright smile, her elegant complexity, and her patient search for truth and harmony are unique, and find her best match in the sophisticated character of Chanel No. 5 Eau de Toilette!
The Scorpio Lady
October 24th – November 22nd
A sorceress? a prophet? Her strange, unfathomable beauty, her loyal, intense feelings, her pronounced intuition, and her knowledge of human nature make the Scorpio woman a fascinating creature. With her, your childhood was certainly never bland: with a vibrating smile, a warm voice, and deep affection, she probably taught you to appreciate courage and ambition, to love beauty and intelligence, and to make the best of everything on earth! As Linda Goodman puts it nicely, the softness of the Scorpio woman resembles “black velvet”, but her strength is so overwhelming that she can sometimes appear intimidating. Sensual, subtle and absolutely moving, Cartier La Panthère Eau de Parfum is the best companion for the deeply demanding Scorpio lady!
The Sagittarius Lady
November 23rd – December 21st
Embarrassingly honest, open, and disarmingly charming: The Sagittarius woman has a refreshingly sensible, clear nature, who takes things the way they are, and wins over people with her bright optimism. Her independent, idiosyncratic nature makes her at times appear reserved, perhaps because she just loves to disappear without prior notice: she is on the go almost all the time! With these qualities, as a mother she was certainly the best companion of her children, who may even see her as a kind of big sister to this day. The Sagittarius lady is genuinely tireless, unconventional, interested in many things, and will certainly find a lifelong comrade in the lively, freedom-loving character of the Chloé Nomade Absolu de Parfum!
The Capricorn Lady
December 22nd – January 20th
There is hardly a lady in the zodiac who acts as determined and single-minded as the Capricorn woman. Her strong need for security is only surpassed by her deep sense of harmony. Ambitious and artistically talented, she often surprises with an overwhelming depth behind her gentle, unobtrusive nature. As a child of a Capricorn lady, you recognized early on that despite her reserved appearance, her resoluteness was quite impressive: she is still a great support for her entire family! And though, she remains an art loving romantic, without ever forgetting her innate pragmatism. The calm, clear, and balanced nature of the Capricorn lady finds its most beautiful interpretation in the fragrance Bvlgari Omina Crystalline Eau de Toilette.
The Aquarius Lady
January 21st – February 19th
Linda Goodman describes the paradoxical nature of the Aquarius woman as “faithful, but sometimes indifferent”. Above all, she is incredibly freedom-loving. Curious, intellectual, witty, graceful and adaptable, she reminds of a butterfly that joyfully flies and looks around. All of these qualities make her an extremely sociable person: The Aquarius lady knows many people, loves friendship, is enthusiastic about any change, and is already the best friend of her children! Since she is interested in everything and everyone, she maintains an unprejudiced attitude that immediately inspires trustfulness. In this way, she will find her ideal companion in the refreshing, citrusy-floral fragrance notes of the Aigner Debüt Eau de Parfum!
The Pisces Lady
February 20th – March 20th
The female version of the last zodiac sign is thoroughly a girl: the Pisces lady has an unusual, enigmatic nature that makes her look reserved, gentle, and somehow dreamy. Even if she manages to cope with the toughest strokes of fate, thanks to her persistence, audacity, and stamina, she will still give a slight impression of helplessness, which usually brings her a lot of sympathy. As a child of a Pisces mother, you already know her loving sides and her capricious moods, which makes you wish to pamper her even more! And therefore you should definitely know that no fragrance embodies the girlishness of the Pisces woman best like Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau de Toilette with its delicate fruity-floral notes!
