Jennifer Aniston Perfume

I know this came out a while ago... and I have to say I smelled it at Sephora and hated it when it first came out. I got the sample shown above probably about 6 months ago and it sat in a little tin full of perfume samples until today. Today I decided to open the tin, pull out a random fragrance and try something new. This is the one I picked up. After wearing it today, I've decided I actually love it.

Sephora descibes this fragrance as follows:

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 must and woods. 
Notes: 
Citrus Grove Accord, Rose Water, Jasmine, Violet, Amazon Lily, Musk, Amber, Sandalwood.
Style: 
Sensual. Floral. Clean.

Honestly, I can't pick out a single one of those notes in the perfume, but to me it smells like sunscreen and summer. I personally love the smell of sunscreen because it reminds me of the beach, summertime and fun. I love summer and sunshine, even though ours are short in Western Washington. It is pretty light to me, assuming you don't spray too much on. I have been wearing it all day now and I keep getting little whiffs of that beachy sunscreen scent, but I like it. It is definitely a casual, summery fragrance not meant for special occasions, formal affairs or fall and winter.

OVERALL: To me it is a sublte, fun and slightly flirty scent reminiscent of and perfect for summer.

Would I purchase the full size? Definitely! I don't know what made me not like it the first time I smelled it (perhaps too many fragrances in the air already?) but I am glad I got a sample size to be able to try it out. Now I know I love it and I think this could be a new favorite for summer for me.

My Fragrance Samples:
Speaking of that little tin, here is a photo. It is from MAC back when they had the Tartan Tales mini pigment giftsets. I believe this was the Christmas 2010 collection. You can still get them at the CCO though, at least mine still has a couple. I love the little tin, it is a perfect size for keeping all my perfume samples together.
As you can see, it holds quite a few. I got almost all of these from online orders from Sephora. Everytime there are perfume samples available that I don't already have, I get them. I just think they are more fun than many of the samples, like when you get a dime sized drop of lotion in a little packet or something. Besides, its much better to try a fragrance a couple times for free before deciding if you want to purchase a full size or not.
