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┬áSouthern 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

Kudos to her for being actively involved in the process of creating a signature product, unlike many of the other celebs who just have *something* made by *someone* and then stamp their name and image on it. Does Celine Dion even KNOW what “her” perfume SMELLS like?
Although for the record Jen, *every* perfume smells different on different people. Skin chemistry.

Hey Shannon:

Are ya jealous much. Jennifer Aniston is FAR from homely. Have u seen her EVER. She is gorgeous beyond, measure. And she is a wonderful actress.

Only people that speak the way u do. Are very jealous and not happy in their own life. SO GET A LIFE.

She can concoct all the perfumes she wants, still won’t cover up the stank of her movies: redundant, interchangeable, fluffy balls of poop. The older she gets, the more she looks like Stan Laurel. Both smokers too. Go away Jen, and take Kim K with you.

“not alot of substance there”
“so empty, so dumb”
just like your posts Mara and Shannon.
How ironic.
Do you ever say anything intelligent or well thought out? Just wonderin’

The haters are very young and think their comments are really cute. They sound like little kids bickering on the playground. I can’t imagine adults writing this type of dribble. Positive people are happy people – the haters are negative about everything and very unhappy. Crying for attention! I try to feel sorry for them but instead I’d like to feed them a bar of Lava soap.

I bought the perfume and didn’t like it much at first, but it is true, as the day goes on, the fragrance evolves into something that is really growing on me. Love Jen

I love perfume and if I had a chance to make my own, I would in a heartbeat! Celebs sure have the advantage over us normal folks. :) I like the way the notes in the perfume read, definitely will be testing this the next time I’m at Sephora!
