Akowa By M. Micallef Eau De Parfum 3.4Oz For Men
Akowa By M. Micallef
Named for a mysterious tribe purported to live in the wilderness of Gabon, Akowa is M. Micallef perfumers Geoffery Nejman and Jean Claude Astier's tribute to the beauty of the unknown, the profundity of ancient and traditional culture, and the power of those who decide their own fate with courage and determination. Built around an unnamed “secret ingredient” uncovered by Nejman on his travels in Africa, Akowa is powerfully primal, crisp, dry and earthy, with a musky sensuality that feels all the more compelling for its expertly balanced sense of restraint and mystery. We've never smelled anything quite like it.
From the very first spray out of the gorgeously understated matte black flacon, Akowa radiates an otherworldly magnetism, as juicy yet lightly bitter orange blossom and bergamot entice, while the rooty, herbaceous secret ingredient begins to announce its enigmatic presence. It soon grows in intensity, revealing a dusky spiciness with surprisingly cool tones of fig leaf and cacao, keeping the warmth of emerging amber at arms length. In the base notes, an earthy vetiver adds to the wild appeal, while musks maintain a sensually human element. To the perfumers, the name Akowa represents the perspective that comes with knowing that the full spectrum of humanity will forever be beyond our understanding. As this mysterious, beguiling scent demonstrates, such mystery is indeed profoundly beautiful.
