Clinique have launched a new symbolic riff on their classic Aromatics Elixir called Aromatics in Black, which is the counterpart to last year's Aromatics in White...
These two latest Aromatics chapters are an attempt to rejuvenate the concept of the original perfume by associating its name to new moods, rather than being true or literal flankers with minimal changes to the formula. They sound similar but smell completely different, judging from the list of notes and the previous Aromatics in White.
The new composition is an olfactory exploration of the color black, offering darker and deeper sensations,
"There's infinite mystery in black. A bold undercurrent of precious myrrh carries succulent fruit and exotic floral notes to seductive new depths."
The new eau de parfum opens on top notes of bergamot, wild black cherry and white pepper followed by a heart of Jasmine sambac, rose and green galbanum while the base features Labdanum, cashmeran, myrrh and amber.
Price is £78 for 100 ml.
