What Perfume Should You Wear Based On Your Birth Month?

What Perfume Should You Wear Based On Your Birth Month?

Though it often goes unnoticed, the influence one’s birth month carries has an astounding impact on who you are. As such, if you’re trying to choose a perfume that suits you well, it’s worth considering factors such as this birth month, your birthday flowers, and the influence they both carry. As it can be difficult to determine which months and fragrances align with each other, we’ve put together a few recommendations to start you off.  

January

As the beginning of a new year, January represents feelings of hope and rebirth, and its birth flowers are snowdrops and carnations. Featuring notes of carnation, lemon, and freesia, Romance for Women by Ralph Lauren is a woody, floral perfume that is perfect for January children. It gives off a certain feeling of romance and optimism, an air of confidence that prepares you to take the new year head-on.

Scent Notes:

Top: Chamomile, Sungoddess Rose, Ginger, Marigold, Yellow Freesia, Lychee, and Lemon

Mid: Nightblooming Daylily, White Violet, Lotus, Violet Absolute, and Carnation

Base: Exotic Wood, White Musk, Oakmoss, and Patchouli

February

Those born in February tend to be romantics, passionate, and devoted to their significant others. As for a fitting fragrance, there’s no better match than Love Story by Chloe. It’s a chic, fruity fragrance that opens with notes of orange blossoms, followed by a jasmine heart and a rich cedarwood finish. It’s a delicate and sensual fragrance that carries an undeniable air of romance.

Scent Notes:

Top: Neroli

Mid: Stephanotis Jasmine and Orange Blossoms

Base: Cedarwood

March

By March, the cold weather is beginning to fade, ushering in a new beginning, a time of promise and prosperity that is best represented by the lively daffodil. This gentle transition is perfectly captured by fresh florals and sweet citrus notes of Dolce for women by Dolce & Gabbana. A neroli head melds with a heart of water lily, eventually fading into a satisfying musky finish. However, it’s the bold scent of dandelions that truly completes this fragrance.

Scent Notes:

Top: Neroli Leaves, Papaya Flower, and White Amaryllis

Mid: White Daffodil, White Water Lily, and Cashmeran

Base: Musk and Sandalwood

April

Represented by sweet peas and daisies, April marks the beginning of the early spring season, and with it, the purity of new life. This season full of life and energy is the ideal match for Daisy Eau So Fresh for Women by Marc Jacobs. Colorful notes of grapefruit and raspberry mingle with gentler touches of sweet pea and apple blossom, creating a fragrance that is both tranquil and undeniably lively. It embodies all the best qualities of April, making it the perfect choice for April children.

Scent Notes:

Top: Ruby Red Grapefruit, Raspberry, Green Leaves, and Pear

Mid: Violet, Wild Rose, Apple Blossom, Lychee, and Jasmine

Base: Musk, Plum, and Cedar

May

Those born in May have a caring and hopeful spirit, reflected in the delicate beauty of the lily of the valley, their birth flower. As such, a fragrance with the lily of the valley’s aroma is the perfect fit for them. One such fragrance is White for Women by Kenneth Cole, a sweet, airy fragrance that blends fruity notes of plum and mandarin with vanilla, musk, and of course, the lily of the valley. Luxurious and refined, it’s perfect for May’s warm, sunny days.

Scent Notes:

Top: Plum, Mandarin, and Freesia

Mid: Lily of the Valley, Orchid, and Iris

Base: Vanilla, Musk, and Amber

June

The June birth flowers are red roses, representing romance and happiness. Those born in June have a bright, sunny disposition that brightens the mood wherever they go. This sensual romance and sunny disposition are elegantly brought to the surface by Rose Rush for Women by Paris Hilton. It opens with sensual notes of rose, complemented by sweet lychee and a musky base. Its inviting, passionate aroma is sure to set the wearer apart from the crowd.

Scent Notes:

Top: Rose Petals and Neroli

Mid: Lychee and Peony Mingle

Base: Sparkling Amber, Cedarwood, and White Musk

July

With a similarly upbeat personality to those born in June, July children nevertheless have a unique poise and innocence. As the name would suggest, Pure Grace for Women by Philosophy brings together these traits, combining them into one graceful perfume. With soothing notes of lavender, musk, and water lily, it’s a dignified fragrance that’s best for everyday wear.

Scent Notes:

Top: Lavender and Musk

Mid: Jasmine and Water Lily

Base: Bergamot

August

Represented by the gladiolus and poppy, those born in August display strong characters and creative minds. Because of this, they tend to be best suited to a bold floral fragrance such as Flower Poppy Bouquet by Kenzo. It opens with the sweet scent of pear, followed by a heart of gardenia and rose that soon settles into warm, nutty almond notes. This fragrance gives the wearer an air of quiet strength and refinement, perfect for August children.

Scent Notes:

Top: Nashi Pear

Mid: Gardenia and Bulgarian Rose

Base: Almond Tree

September

September children display their affection openly, staying close to their loved ones and holding steadfast to their moral code. This strong sense of devotion is the perfect complement to Mercedes Benz Woman In Red Eau de Parfum Spray for Women. Beginning with sweet pear and gentle citrus, the fragrance soon opens up to a floral heart of florage and mandarin orange. Subtle hints of patchouli and sandalwood form a delicate baseline that brings the fragrance together to create a sensual and unique fragrance.

Scent Notes:

Top: Mandarin orange, Pear, Cherry blossom, Pistachio

Mid: Jasmine, Gardenia

Base: Tonka bean, Benzoin, Patchouli, Sandalwood

October

Calm, introspective, and wise, October children are represented by the marigold and cosmo. A subtle and modern marigold fragrance, Burberry for Women by Burberry is naturally their ideal match. Notes of soothing marigold and sweet peach take the spotlight, emphasized by more subtle scents of cedar, vanilla, and musk. It’s perfect for confident, powerful women, those who aren’t afraid of taking the lead.

Scent Notes:

Top: Peach, Black Currant, Cool Pear, Marigold, and Apricot

Mid: Jasmine, Cedar, and Sandalwood

Base: Vanilla and Musk

November

November children are honest to a fault and fiercely loyal to those they’re close to. Made to represent these exact traits, With Love for Women by Paris Hilton is their perfect match in every sense. First created as a love letter to Hilton’s fans, this perfume features crisp, vibrant notes of green apple and bergamot alongside subtle woody and musky tones. It’s a bold, sensual reflection of a November child’s simple yet powerful love for their partner.

Scent Notes:

Top: Green Apple, Vibrant Bergamot, and Kiwi

Mid: Wild Jasmine, Petally Orchid, and Muguet

Base: Soft Modern Woods and Decadent Musk

December

December marks the end of a year and has a certain air of finality. Nevertheless, there’s also a feeling of hope for the year ahead as well as security and comfort, which tend to be reflected in the children born this month. Crystal Noir for Women by Gianni Versace is carefully crafted to mirror this hopeful benevolence, with notes of gardenia and amber giving it a fresh and romantic air. As such, it’s perfect for romantic occasions.

Scent Notes:

Top: Violet, Black Fig, and Black Currant

Mid: Jasmine, Tuberose, and Frangipani

Base: Sandalwood, Cashmeran, Vanilla, and Heliotrope
