While home decor is always a fun subject to entertain, we all have our favorite items we just can't get enough of. From throw pillows to wall art to rugs, it's exciting to hand select items it bring into our homes that reflect who we are. One of our personal favorites, though, has to be scented candles. With so many styles, sizes, shapes, and scents to choose from, it makes sense why many of us may have a small collection throughout our homes.
When it comes to selecting a scented candle, you of course want to keep in mind the types of scenes you like, as well as how strong the scent is when it's burning. Yet trying to choose a scent that matches your mood (or can help boost it) can be overwhelming. Luckily, looking into your zodiac sign can help point you in the right direction of what scents truly mesh with your personality.
Below, we've chosen which scented candles we think are perfect for your zodiac sign. Check out yours below.
