You’ve probably seen and/or tried candles that are scented specifically for your zodiac sign—Leo loves fiery, spicy scents like cinnamon and clove whereas Pisces may like something more oceanic and sea-salty. But Target is now selling candles that are scented based on your birthstone, and the candle itself is just as pretty as its scent.

The collection of birthstone candles are part of the Project 62 brand, and each one is themed after a specific birthstone. The scents are crafted with the color of the birthstone in mind. So, warm-toned gemstones are citrusy, green-colored gemstones are more earthy, and pinky-reds are floral-scented. The candle itself is made with palm oil and paraffin wax and has an estimated burn time of about 40 hours within its = white ceramic jar decorated with gold illustrations and lettering. After the candle burns, the jar can be used for storage, houseplants, or even a DIY candle project.

November – Citrine

For November babies, the citrine candle is a mix of pineapple, lemon peel, and tonka bean—tropical scents to match the warm, orange hue of the citrine gemstone.

April – Diamond

And those born in April can soak in the scents of Diamond—jasmine, tuberose, and warm woods.

Target currently carries all twelve birthstone candles and each one comes in a 7-ounce jar for $7.99. Of course, you don’t need to shop according to your birthstone (trying all 12 scents is tempting), but keep in mind that the holidays are coming—this personalized candle could make for a great last-minute holiday gift.
