Akkad Eau de Parfum
The story of Akkad:
"I am Sargon, powerful sovereign of Akkad, who was brought up by Aqqi, the gardener of the great marshes between the Tigris and the Euphrates. Essence of Akkad is a gift from the beautiful Ishtar, who loves and protects me. It contains all the most precious ointments from Punt, and also those from the islands of the great sea, and others from still further afield. This amber is the light that shines on my kingdom. It is my empires most precious treasure."
Why we're addicted: It's liquid amber. Delphine Thierry, who composed this creation, imagined an amber note that is both spicy and luminous. The opposite therefore of the dark, mystical ambers that bring to mind the smoke of frankincense in ancient temples.
Mandarin, Bergamot from Italy, essence of Clary Sage, Essence of Cardamom, Elemi, Frankincense, Styrax, Amber, Cistus-Labdanum, Vanilla and Patchouli.
Akkad amber opens with an aromatic citrus head note of mandarin and bergamot, enhanced by Clary sage. Clary sage, also known as the sacred herb, is renowned for its euphoric, harmonizing properties.
The heart unfolds in the rich, balmy, spicy notes of frankincense and styrax, evocative of the ancient east, cooled by elemi, a fresh, soothing herb, and intensified by cardamom.
The base with its two ambers of plant and animal origin centers on the woody richness of patchouli, sweetened with a sensual vanilla.
