I was about to say that “Jennifer Aniston” is a pretty unevocative name for a perfume, but then I realized that you can't get more evocative than suggesting that the entire essence of a whole person has been crammed into a tiny bottle.
And unlike most celebrity scents, which usually smell like the dregs of the berry vat, the cupcake vat and the tuberose vat poured into a single new vat stamped with the star's name, “Jennifer Aniston” (quote marks to differentiate from the living, breathing, vigorously yogacized Jennifer Aniston) actually conjures the actress' natural, beachy, mineral water-quaffing beauty.
This eau de parfum, with its beach-skin smell of jasmine and salty musk, lives in the Gendarme neck of the woods. But it's softer and prettier than Gendarme, cushioned as it is with the palest rose, violet and sandalwood.
And according to Jennifer's longtime hairdresser, Chris McMillan, who I ran into at Scent Bar (he's a dedicated fumehead as well as a hair hopper), Jen was very involved in the development of the perfume. He just spontaneously volunteered that tidbit in between snorts of Avignon, and since “Jennifer Aniston” is such great match between the celebrity and the scent, it sounds plausible.
“Jennifer Aniston” would find a loving home with younger fumies who favor a lighter perfume, as well as with anyone who needs a low-key but quietly enjoyable scent for school or work.
