Head-strong, thoughtful, and playful, Aquarius is as sexy as they come. If you're looking for scents that'll turn on an Aquarius, there are a few key things to keep in mind. "To turn an Aquarius on, aim for unconventional and natural scents," Astrologer Six tells Elite Daily. "Try to avoid anything too artificial-smelling. This air sign prefers scents they can tolerate on a consistent basis." Since Aquarius is ruled by Saturn (in addition to Uranus), they recommend fragrances featuring cinnamon or other earthy smells.
Likewise, astrologer and author Mecca Woods recommends woodsy fragrances, like cedar and sandalwood. "Aquarius hates to be locked into categories or labels, so a gender-neutral or unisex fragrance is the way to go. Not only are cedar and sandalwood gender-neutral, but they also offer a sensual, calming quality that can help ground a frazzled or distracted Aquarius in the moment," she tells Elite Daily. "Fragrances with spicy notes offer just enough excitement to the senses to keep things interesting, which Aquarius prefers," she adds.
With this in mind, get into the body oils, butters, candles, and hair mists that'll have your Aquarius raring to go.

1. Every Man Jack Sandalwood Deodorant
Six's main bit of advice? "Don't wear anything too obnoxious! Aquarius is big on their community and the company they keep, which means it's important to make sure you're not overpowering with your scent," they say. A deodorant that smells like sandalwood is a perfect way to go. Noting that Aquarius is ever the humanitarian, Six also recommends picking products that are environmentally friendly — and this deodorant is vegan and cruelty-free.

13. Chai Épicé Gourmand Candle
A little sweet, a little earthy, a little unusual — this woodsy Chai Épicé candle is right up your partner or date's alley.
As you're in the market for Aquarius-friendly scents, heed this last bit of advice from Woods: "As an intellectual air sign, Aquarius can often live in their heads, which can sometimes come off as distracted or detached to their partners," she says. "Offering Aquarius a grounding scent can help get them out of their head and into their body, which can lead to stronger intimacy with their partner." With that in mind, keep an eye out for woodsy, herbally, pleasant scents that'll set the ideal mood to get freaky with your air sign lover.
