Jennifer Aniston’s perfume is finally here, exclusively at Sephora!

Jennifer Aniston‘s debut perfume is finally here! After launching her fragrance in the United Kingdom last July, it is now available stateside, starting today exclusively on Sephora.com. “I wanted this fragrance to be a personal library of scent memories,” the actress said of the fragrance. While the fragrance just went on sale online, available for $39 to $70 depending on size, it won’t arrive at Sephora stores until next month.

Jennifer Aniston Eau de Parfum
In the creation of her debut fragrance, Jennifer Aniston called to mind her earliest and most beloved recollections of scent. Evoking memories of sunny days at the beach and happy summer nights, this captivating composition includes light, blooming floral notes set against a sensual base of musk and woods.

“I wanted this fragrance to be a personal library of scent memories. For example, my love of night blooming jasmine has lasted a lifetime. 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. No aroma is quite so purifying, humbling and exhilarating. The combination of the salty air and tropical oils reminds me of long sunny days on the beach-pure happiness.” —Jennifer Aniston

The bottle, inspired by Jennifer’s love and appreciation of architecture, references the flow of a Frank Gehry building and the fluidity of a cresting wave.
