Jennifer Aniston has revealed some of her favourite smells, which includes Ellen DeGeneres’ house.

The former Friends actress is gearing up to release her third fragrance, Near Dusk Jennifer Aniston, later this month. But while the star’s perfumes smell lovely, some of her personal favourite scents leave a lot to be desired.

“I’m very anti-cologne on men,” she told People magazine. “I love the way they smell naturally. Their own eau de sweat.”

While it’s unknown whether she’s referring to her own fiancé Justin Theroux with that statement, Jennifer did name check another special person in her life when it comes to top smells. She cited her friend Ellen DeGeneres’ home as “delicious” and “earthy”.

“I [also] love the smell of church—any church,” she admitted. “I’m not religious in any way, but I do love all of those wonderful incenses.”

As for her latest fragrance, the 46-year-old wanted to create something a little different to her first two releases. Near Dusk Jennifer Aniston includes notes of nectarine, sweet pink pepper, coconut water and jasmine.

“I’ve been wanting to do more of a nighttime fragrance, something a little sexier,” she explained. “The others are a little lighter and more daytimey.”

The star added that jasmine is a scent that she always recognises, regardless of where she is.

“I grew up in New York City, so I wasn’t around flowers that much,” she said. “But when I’d go to my friends’ houses in the country, it was one of those smells I loved. It gives you a feeling of butterflies … the anticipation of something really wonderful and fun approaching.”
