Wikipedia dishing out the truth:

    Since the late 1980s, it has become fashionable to call all flavored mayonnaises "aioli", with flavorings such as saffron or chili.[7] However, purists insist that "flavored mayonnaise can contain garlic, but true aioli contains no seasoning but garlic".[8]

Aioli here is basically garlic sauce. Not just 'oh, there is a hint of garlic in there', no, there should be 'my bad breath can kill a nation' amounts of garlic.

I love it. But I also combine it with Doritos, so maybe my culinary authority isn't worth much.
