Assorted Perfumes, $10 for 1/8 ounce to $25 for 1 ounce
Perfumes of the Desert & Trading Post 208 San Felipe NW 243-0859
If you're looking for a romantic gift, sensual Scorpios are drawn to perfumes with intense musk or floral scents. Perfumes of the Desert have been handmade, hand-mixed and hand-labeled in Albuquerque's Old Town since 1948. Popular scents include piñon, yucca and purple sage, but Scorpios might appreciate the exotic "Midnight Cereus."
Scorpios love games of cunning and strategy. This artistically styled board game combines the best of puzzles and one-on-one strategy games. Players try to assemble simple to complex symbols using the game's black-and-white shapes while blocking their opponents from doing the same. When shopping for Scorpios, look for a store that that stocks plenty of mind-bending games and puzzles.
Scorpios are born detectives and are perfectly happy when their noses are buried in a good mystery novel. Fortunately, New Mexico has a host of well-known crime novelists. These recent books by Lisa Polisar, Elaine Pinkerton, Tony Hillerman, Steve Brewer, Jonathan Miller, Martha Egan and Charles C. Poling are just a small sampling of the sort of homegrown whodunits your Scorpio might enjoy.
Flirty Lingerie does “99.9 percent” of its business online, but the newly expanded store still manages to feature a staggeringly large selection of lingerie, stockings, body jewelry and other intimate accessories. Lingerie, especially if it's in the dark and Gothic vein, makes a fine gift for the sexy Scorpio in your life. Often described as a “true femme fatale,” what Scorpio woman wouldn't covet this leather corset with red frog details? Top it off with a red leather choker as a stocking stuffer.
