I sampled Aromatics in White and Black today. Neither of them really knocked me out, although they’re well-done enough and certainly not terrible. The original Aromatics is an instantly recognizable masterpiece; its flankers are not.

Aromatics in Black reminds me of Tom Ford Black Orchid, which makes me violently ill. Thankfully AIB isn’t nearly as suffocating, but it is a dense, dark, leathery jasmine-orchid brew. The flowers in this don’t have the slightest hint of dirtiness or fecal notes, but the composition suffers from that weird chemical pong you get with Bath & Body Works products.

Again— it’s not terrible at all, and many people would like this. For me, having grown up with classic fragrances with very distinctive note profiles, AIB feels boring and derivative. But at least it isn’t some sugary dumbed-down flanker. Clinique clearly made an effort to be daring and adult with this one.
