Escape with Scent

Sea salt air, crashing waves, and tropical getaways in a bottle with Amouage‘s newest Escape Collection from their Odyssey Collection. These four new fragrances have me daydreaming of island paradises with each spritz. Each scent contains the standout ingredient of frankincense, a scent traded on the Silk Road and for cleansing houses with incense made from its precious scent.

All of the fragrances smell phenomenal, and I’ve been reaching for Purpose over and over. It has a bright opening with bergamot, pink pepper, frankincense, and pimento berry, transforming into rich yet floral mid-notes with rose, sand vetiver, sandalwood, papyrus and a dry down of saffron, suede, mystikal, and akigalawood. I spray this on before going out or snuggling into bed. For a pre- and post-gym scent, I spray Search, filled with sparkling lemon, lime, and mandarin followed by hojari frankincense, black pepper, and elemi. The strong cade, vetiver, and guaiacwood carry me throughout my workout until I hop in the shower.

This travel kit is perfect for on-the-go, whether long-haul trips or for slipping into your bag when you’re in a rush. Amouage has done it again: I can forever be at a summery island (at least in my imagination).
