Making Scents of Marriage

July 14, 2017

Thank you to Demeter Fragrance Library for sending me fragrance samples from their Zodiac Collection in exchange for this post. No other compensation has been received. All opinions expressed in this post are 100% my own.

My husband and I will be celebrating five years of marriage next week. We’ve been together for 10 years, in total.  I’ve definitely learned a thing or two this past decade!  I’ve learned about love, partnership, and what “for better or for worse” truly means.  Through thick or thin, one thing has remained the same – I go to bed every single night with a heart full of love for my “mister.”  

This year, I thought I would have a little fun with our anniversary!  I used to be really into astrology at one time.  I kept astrological charts and read Tarot cards.  Since I know a thing or two about astrology, I wasn’t too thrilled when I initially found out my husband was a Cancer.  We’re not exactly cosmically compatible.  He’s a calm, water sign. I’m a feisty, fiery, sun sign.  But together we’ve proven that opposites can definitely attract!


Cancer, the crab, is a water sign who is gentle and kind.  People born under this star sign are loyal when it comes to family and friends.  They have a hard time opening up to other people outside of their circle.

My husband is the quiet one in our relationship.  He’s a good listener and there for me when I have a problem to work out.  Although he provides a great calmness to my fiery inner Leo, he can be a bit stubborn at times.


Leo, the lion, is pretty hard to ignore.  We tend to be a bit dramatic at times, I will admit, but we’re extremely loyal and loving towards those closest to us.  Deep down, we’re just a big pussycat who wants to be loved and adored.

When you first meet me, I’m a little timid.  Over time, you’ll realize that was just how I ease myself into situations.  Then, my loud, proud, lion starts to roar and there’s no stopping me!  Just like Cancer, I can be quite stubborn at times.  But I will always follow my heart.

When I learned that Demeter Fragrance Library released a Zodiac Collection, I needed to see how our sign’s fragrances matched up!  You already know that I’m a huge fan of the Demeter Fragrance Library!  I helped them celebrate the launch of their Jelly Doughnut fragrance.

The Zodia Collection is sold in pretty 1.7 oz/50mL Italian glass bottles (perfect for gifting!) and the fragrances are available for every star sign.  I was immediately drawn to the collection and knew that I had to have Cancer and Leo.  My husband and I even each other out, just like the Cancer and Leo fragrances do.  I put them to the test to see how they blend together.  

The Cancer fragrance is made with a blend of Ylang Ylang, Black Davana, Ugandan Vanilla Bean and Burl Wood. It’s soft, clean, and romantic.  Leo is a blend of Black Myrrh, Indonesian Teakwood, Black Pepper and Bitter Orange Blossom.  It’s spicy without being overwhelming and embraces you in a warm, sexy fragrance. Together, these fragrances are a little spicy and a little sweet, just like us! 

There’s nothing more beautiful in life than when two become one. The same can be said about these Demeter fragrances. It’s not always easy to make sense out of marriage. Demeter makes it easier to make “scents” out of marriage with their Zodiac Collection.  Choose your unique scent or blend it with your partner’s to create your own signature scent.  

Right now, if you spend $30 or more on Demeter’s website, you can get a one ounce bottle of their Bamboo scent free + a bonus gift!  Visit Demeter Fragrance Library to see more of their truly unique scents.

    I didn’t know Demeter had released these! I’m a Libra and my scent sounds interesting as long as the wood note is super subtle. My husband is a Tuarus and I think he’d probably like his! We’ve been married nearly 12 years and I’ve always laughed at how well we suit our signs 😉

      Yes! I just found out about the collection about a month ago! It’s so awesome! I’m glad you think you would both like the scents! Isn’t it funny how accurate your signs can be?

    That would be a really cool and original wedding gift!

    • Reply Jessica July 14, 2017 at 8:52 PM

      Right? It would be an awesome birthday or wedding gift!

    I don’t know too much about signs but I know I’m a Capricorn and my partners birthday is early June ? I wonder how cosmically compatible or not we are 🙂

      Sounds like he’s a Gemini. It’s definitely interesting to read up on each other’s signs! Some of the characteristics are really spot on for me and my husband!

    I’m a cancer, I would love to try their scent.

      It’s a really nice scent! It’s light and clean. I think I might actually like it a little better than Leo!

    Oh cool! I wonder what Virgo smells like… 😉

    • Reply Jessica July 15, 2017 at 9:52 AM

      Hmm…I imagine it’s probably a nice, earthy scent!
