As a result of the experimental study of the spectra of anisotropic scattering of light, a character of orientation movement of molecules in aromatic hydrocarbons has been analyzed. The obtained results have been interpreted from the viewpoint of a model of inhibited rotation and the contributions of the rotational and vibrational degrees of freedom to a molecule spectrum have been estimated. With increasing temperature of liquids under study and approaching a critical state, the rotational degrees of freedom "freeze", and the vibrational degrees have become more significant.
