Jennifer Aniston‘s signature fragrance is inspired by her past. The Friends star–who launched her self-titled aroma in British department store Harrods last week–claims her perfume comes from her own “personal library” of scents from her younger years in California.
Discussing the perfume’s creation, Jennifer told Stylist magazine, “It really was an exciting process and the only reason I was actually interested in doing it was because of the involvement that they allowed me to have.”
“I wanted this fragrance to be a personal library of scent memories. Growing up in California, I distinctly remember the scent of jasmine on summer evenings. I consider the scent of the ocean to be one of life’s most uplifting sensual experiences.”
Just prior to the launch of her fragrance in London, the actress altered the name of the perfume from Lolavie, its original name, to Jennifer Aniston.
Perfume blog The Scented Salamander proposed the original unusual name was changed because of people trying to understand what it meant.
They wrote: “We can only speculate that the fragrance marketing teams decided the idea of the name was cute but would be constant fodder for psychoanalysts, bloggers and tabloids. In the UK, the latter are famously fierce. They would have probably gone digging in her trash bins to see if they could dig out a reasonable explanation for the name Lolavie.”
