Aromatics In White Perfume by Clinique, Aromatics In White perfume draws inspiration from an older fragrance from Clinique: Aromatics Elixir. This particular perfume came out in November of 2014, and applying it to pulse points leads to a magical sensation. Clinique is a cosmetics and fragrance brand based out of the United States. It was founded by Estee Lauder after Evelyn Lauder found an article in Vogue discussing the importance of dermatology. The brand was born, and the first location opened on Saks Fifth Avenue in 1968. Although the company saw great success with its line of skin care products, it got into fragrances in 1971. Aromatics in White was developed by Nicolas Beaulieu.
