Jennifer Aniston Has Been a Secret Perfumer for Years

Jennifer Aniston might have debuted her first official fragrance just weeks ago–but it turns out she’d already honed her skills crafting signature scents for her inner circle. “I wanted to create my own fragrance because for years I would make scented oils and lotions for my girlfriends for wedding showers, baby showers and birthdays,” says this week’s PEOPLE cover girl. “I would create a personalized scent for them, so when I was offered the opportunity to design my own fragrance I jumped at the chance.” The debut scent, Jennifer Aniston, is a melange of notes that are nostalgic for her, she says, but that are also universal, smelling slightly different on each person who wears it. “I wanted to incorporate some scents that I love most, especially living in Southern California, like jasmine, sandalwood, violet and musk,” she explains. “It took over a year to get the fragrance just as I wanted it.” Buy the scent for yourself at, and read more from Aniston in this week’s PEOPLE magazine, on newsstands now. –-Kim Peiffer

I bought it and I love it. Everyone has a different preference for perfume and some will like it and some wont. I’ve always loved Shalimar and will still continue to use it from time to time but I will definitely keep buying Jennifer Aniston perfume. The longer you have it on the better it smells. Well worth the money

It smells like poo poo. And Jennifer Aniston needs to go away already. Her movies suck and are cheesy, she is homely, and she is SO uninteresting and vapid. The only things she are passionate about are yoga and Cabo. Not a lot of substance there…

Mara on

I so agree with Shannon. Jennifer Aniston is so ‘passé’, so empty, so dumb…go away, please!

I have yet to see this when I’m out & about, but to those who hate her… if you don’t like her, don’t read about her.

wow Shannon,Mara. Perhaps a class in kindness would benefit you both

Stephanie on

wow, such negativity! I never could understand how people can be so mean to someone they don’t even know. I like some of her movies, and she seems like a genuine person. I appreciate her looks because she isn’t the “norm”. I have yet to smell her perfume…I don’t normally wear perfume. I do love sandlewood though. May try it because my husband loves sandlewood and Jasmine as well.

Gigi on

I actually like Jennifer Aniston, but I do agree in interviews she does come off somewhat vapid and uninteresting. Plus, does the world really need one more celebrity perfume?

Robin on

Jen is a normal person and you haters need to go hate someone else.

Her perfume is gorgeous and she is a classy, down to earth, endearing person.
