The debut scent was originally named Lolavie, which in French translates to “laughing at life”, however at the last minute, Jen worried it would sound much too close to the popular Marc Jacobs scent, Lola, so she changed it to something that would be much more memorable…Jennifer Aniston.
In the past, celebrities have often names their perfumes and colognes after songs or books, but Jen opted to use her own name. Why?
“At such a late hour, I didn’t want to postpone the launch so the only thing we could really clear (in terms of rights to perfume titles) was my name,” Jen told Reuters at the London event.
The actress arrived at the event in London in a Valentino sheath and looked beautiful as ever.
When she was asked about the inspiration for the perfume, Jen explained to the crowd at Herrod’s that it had taken her two years to find the perfect combination of aromas.
“I brought in a hair serum, a candle, a lotion, a sort of combination of all these things. It’s a combination of my favorite scents — the ocean, sea air, blooming jasmine and tropical oils. It’s my memories of California nights in the summer.”
Regardless of the name, the scent sounds like another home run for Aniston.
The new scent is being sold exclusively at Herrod’s and can be found on their website now!
