I was prepared to dislike this, as Jennifer Aniston is not one of my favorite actresses, but I was surprised to find a nice, clean, fresh fragrance, ideal for warmer weather.
Within 10 minutes it had turned into a Bounce sheet.
Within the hour it was completely gone.
Tried it again on a hot, humid, day and the same thing occurred. I'll save my money for a more lasting fragrance, or at the very least a box of Bounce sheets.
This to me is Beachy and sexy. I can't count how many times people have asked what I am wearing. I find it's in the same realm as Jglow and breathless by Victorias Secret. But this one is perfect and no way like sand and sable which some people say. I tried sand and sable. My husband said I smelled old.
So note to self, NEVER sample that again. Lol
Jennifer Aniston is a crisper, cleaner, more austere, floral version of the already super clean "Gendarme". The press materials indicate that the bottle was based on the work of Frank Gehry, but the scent itself brings to mind another architect: John Pawson. JA is the scent of polished cement floors, floor to ceiling glass, vaulted ceilings, and orderly, minimalist furnishings after the maid (with OCD) has done her thing. There is a biting astringency to the fragrance, as if behind the lovely scent of expensive floral arrangements you can still smell the cleaning products that have scrubbed the room of any flaw and imperfection. This is the scent of order.
I really like it. Definitely unisex. Longevity could be better. I alternate it with "Gendarme" when I want the same "freshly scrubbed and dry cleaned" effect but in a different scent.
(I enjoyed Sherapop's thorough review.) While waiting for the Target Pharmacy to get my order close to correct this afternoon, I visited the anchored perfume bottles from which one can sample only by putting a body part in front of a fixed sprayer. I already knew I didn't like the other celebrescents, so I sampled Aniston's and felt a mild attraction for the citrus and floral. Conclusion: If the same recipe were made of quality ingredients rather than cost-conscious synthetics, I'd probably really like it, especially if I were 40 years younger.
I wouldnt spend my money on it again. The smell is quite like antiseptic or tide, hardly a fresh scent that one enjoys after a shower. Sad to say the stores in Doha, Qatar have no idea about fragrance notes, including Sephora. The fragrance does not last long, and is completely gone by the end of the day. Better luck next time.
