Is it Aioli or Mayonnaise?

I love Aioli... or Mayonnaise but there are differences:

Since the late 1980s, it is fashionable to call all flavored mayonnaises "aioli", with flavorings such as saffron or chili.  However, purists insist "flavored mayonnaise can contain garlic, but true aioli contains no seasoning but garlic"

--- David Tanis, A Platter of Figs and Other RecipesISBN 1579653464, 2008, p. 102

and many people have asked "which Extra Virgin Olive Oil should I use?"

The answer is...if your making Aioli...any type.  Try this Recipe
