Jennifer Aniston had one word on the mind when crafting her latest fragrance, Near Dusk: Sensual.

And the Cake actress' third signature scent is just that: A heady mix of jasmine, peony, musk and white amber with bright top notes that feature nectarine, sweet pink pepper and coconut water.

E! News caught up with the star to get the exclusive scoop on the exciting new launch, as well as details on her beauty regime, bikini body secrets and whether or not longtime beau Justin Theroux will be spritzing himself with Near Dusk.

As we found out, Justin may not be dousing himself in his fiancée's perfume—but he definitely had a hand in the creation of the scent. Read on for more of Jennifer's beauty secrets below!

Why is the beach so inspiring to you?
Growing up in NYC surrounded by buildings and cement, when I would visit family at the ocean it felt like paradise to me. I always feel peaceful and inspired when I'm there.

Did you have a go-to scent as a teenager?
Anais Anais.

Can you give us a little insight into the testing process for your fragrances? Do you have your friends, family and fiancé weigh in on a scent? Do you wear a tester perfume for weeks or longer?
When creating my fragrances, I start by smelling almost every note I can get my hands on in the lab, from different flowers to leather belts. Once I've created something I like, I give it a test run for a few months. I find it really interesting, seeing how different notes are expressed as the day goes on. I always ask my friends and family feedback.

You once told us that Justin hijacks your beauty products. How about your perfume?
He definitely doesn't hijack my perfume!

You said you wanted to recreate relaxation with the scent. What are your favorite things to do to relax? When are you most relaxed?
Sunset is my go-to. I'm always my most relaxed at home at the end of a day.

Fragrance is about dusk, so what are some of your before bedtime rituals?
It's all about pampering. Wash my face…maybe a mask…and then moisturizing. I get very girly at night.

What's one beauty product or item people would be surprised to find on your vanity?
A tiny pair of bronze feet. 

Summer is here! How do you prepare your body and skin for bikini season?
I love a great cover-up! And I will never tell my secrets to you.

Near Dusk by Jennifer Aniston will be on sale at Kohl's this month.
