ARIES (March 22 - April 21) will love the first fragrance from Jennifer Aniston, who wanted her eponymous debut to be "a personal library of scent memories." Much like Aniston herself, it's a breezy, beachy, confident creation; a clean, classy, and modern "nonperfume perfume" Citrus Grove and Rose Water make up the top notes, while middle notes include Wild Violets, Amazon Lily, and a heady, far-reaching Night Blooming Jasmine that recalls Aniston's California summer evenings. Sensual musk, golden amber, and sandalwood - also inspired by those California nights, and the smell of wood fires at friends' homes on those evenings - offer an easy, sexy-clean-skin dry-down. Available at Sephora and at www.sephora.com.
