I can just hear the girlie-boy at the fragrance counter at Harrod’s (read: Sephora in West Hollywood):
“Slurrrrp. J’know. The top note of this new fraaaagrance is Hawaiian Tropic and the bottom note is cigarette butts–in Cabo. Shall I ring you up now?”
Sigh. Honestly. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it a-bloody-GAIN. Just. Name. The Frangrance. BITTER TEARS. The flute along with the dance remix might just make a commercial sort of cool. SORT OF. (Not really.)
I give you the glorious INXS:

“Actress Jennifer Aniston’s first fragrance, which launches July 21 at British department store Harrods, will simply be called Jennifer Aniston, not Lolavie as previously publicized.
Fans, who have been gearing up for the meet-and-greet with the star, could not be any more confused, after multiple names including Aniston, Lola Vie, or even Lovavie, were previously circulated, before Lolavie was communicated as the official name of the scent and printed on the campaign and flacon pictures.
There is no official word on the reasons for the change, but respected fragrance blog The Scented Salamander writes that “we can only speculate that the fragrance marketing teams decided the idea of the name was cute but would be constant fodder for psychoanalysts, bloggers and tabloids. In the UK, the latter are famously fierce. They would have probably gone digging in her trash bins to see if they could dig out a reasonable explanation for the name Lolavie.”
Jen. It’s time to put on a shirt, mmkay?
