Jennifer Aniston: The scent of jasmine, and a gift for Oprah, but alas, no 'SNL'

February 3, 2011 |  3:56 pm


It was raining Jennifer Aniston tidbits Thursday as the actress made her way talking up her Adam Sandler movie "Just Go With It" and other projects -- "other" including the self-titled fragrance that just rolled out stateside with Sephora.

"I wanted this fragrance to be a personal library of scent memories. For example, my love of night blooming jasmine has lasted a lifetime," the actress said in a release. "Growing up in California, I distinctly remember the scent of the jasmine on summer evenings."

She also stopped by Oprah Winfrey's couch, along with costar Sandler, and brought the mogul and longtime Aniston pal a gift: a yoga mat with a photo of Winfrey's dogs on it.

"This is my family," Oprah said, beaming and holding up the mat so the audience could see.

Speaking of family, Aniston almost had an entirely different one in the work department. She and Sandler discussed the Lorne Michaels job offer -- to join the cast of "Saturday Night Live" in the '90s -- that Aniston rejected.

Turns out she had a little show called "Friends" in the works, and decided to stick with that.
