'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 empire’s most precious treasure.'
Perfumer Delphine Thierry imagined a spicy and luminous amber note. The opposite of the dark, mystical ambers, Akkad opens with an aromatic citrus top. Mandarin sears the sweeter juice of bergamot. Clary sage is akin to the velveteen sensation of lambs ear.The core revolves around multi-faceted resins. Amber is weighty, balmy, savory and spicy, recalling the note’s aqueous provenance, achieved by Thierry’s blend of two ambers of plant and animal origin. Cistus labdanum is voile-like sweetness reinforced by patchouli and vanilla. An iconoclastic amber, Akaad is a delightful, delicious and mystic.
