#AD – GIFTED BY THE BRAND
This is a first impression after trying the Odyssey: Escape collection discovery set:
Search opens with a huge dose of lime. A lot of tart citrus with some sharper touches; probably the freshest and least complex of the collection. Green aromatic citrus; similar to Blackcliff Limewood; I find both a bit harsh.
Search warms up some in the base, but the longevity of the acidity is impressive. I think it would wear nicely in Summer, but in my humble opinion Search doesn’t go anywhere particularly interesting or feels interesting enough to justify the price point that Amouage is going for in 2023.
