MCMC Zodiac Mist in Most cancers ~ perfume & house perfume assessment :: Now Odor This

I discussed final yr in a assessment of Eris Parfums’ Scorpio Rising that I’ve all the time been curious in regards to the zodiac, so I am able to discover an astrology-fragrance connection at times. Additionally final yr, the Brooklyn-based indie fragrance model MCMC Fragrances (a longtime favourite of mine) launched a group of “all-natural house and physique mists” designed to enhance the characters of the zodiac. Okay, I assumed, signal (ha!) me up.

As you will not be stunned to study if we have been on-line buddies for some time, I am a June child (rose is “my” flower) and a Cancer (“the crab”), which interprets into being emotionally delicate and most snug in home-like areas. Some Most cancers-themed scents lean into Most cancers’s “water” class by foregrounding aquatic notes and delicate white florals. MCMC takes a special strategy, selecting its notes for his or her weights and “personalities” in a extra cross-sensory approach: “Petitgrain creates a sturdy house from which whimsical eucalyptus and candy grapefruit gently emerge.” 

These days I have been spritzing my Most cancers mist round my house “workplace” for a mid-day enhance, and spraying my arms evenly after I’m within the temper for one thing refreshing. I might describe it as a up to date tackle the traditional Eau de Cologne theme — and its citrus-herbal mix would really feel good on humid summer time days, though it is also ideally suited (talking from expertise) for a winter night once you occur to be feeling stuffy and cranky with a foul head-cold. Its grapefruit word is rounded and juicy and never excessively tart, and the petitgrain (an oil derived from the leaves and twigs of the bitter orange tree) is inexperienced and a contact woody. Eucalyptus, coincidentally, is a scent that has all the time signified “house” to me, since my mom has all the time stored containers of eucalyptus branches in the home the place I grew up. That connection is serendipitous for me, besides, eucalyptus’s gently bracing, fragrant high quality deepens Most cancers’s citrus and wooden notes completely. Total, this mist does really feel “protected and comforting, with depth past,” simply as marketed.

Skimming via the listing of Zodiac Mists, I am seeing different indicators/blends that enchantment to me — Sagittarius (blood orange, rose and ho wooden bark) and Capricorn (benzoin, sandalwood and amyris) sound specifically good. I occur to have very shut relationships with a real-life Cap and Sag — coincidence? Maybe!

Should you knew extra about your individual astrological chart than I do about mine, you possibly can buy mists for all three of your indicators (solar, moon and ascendant) and create a celestial bouquet to your nostril. One (or a pair?) of those Zodiac mists would additionally make a worthy Valentine’s Day reward. The packaging is straightforward but stylish; I actually just like the labels’ summary designs and subtly uncommon palettes.

Should you’re desirous about astrology, what’s your signal? And have you ever ever discovered a perfume that appears to intensify it for you?
