Bland and samey fragrance launches

“Aramis was a pioneer in men’s fragrance and is a scent that is distinctive and recognisable and one which can transcend trend and fads,” says Estée Lauder’s Trudi Loren, Senior Vice President, Corporate Fragrance Development, proudly.

Aramis advert

I’ve been meaning to review Aramis1 for years (it’s a classic, and I’ve never tried it!)
