Product Description:

''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.''

A luminous amber perfume, Akkad is mystical, but also sensual, an exhalation of sacred oils. Delphine Thierry, who composed this creation, imagined an amber note that is both spicy and luminous. The opposite of the dark, mystical ambers that bring to mind the smoke of frankincense in ancient temples, Akkad opens with an aromatic citrus top.

Mandarin is a searing component, which sluices through the dimmer, sweeter juice of bergamot. Clary sage is a downy, almost animalic herb, which calls to mind the synesthetic, velveteen sensation of the fuzzy groundcover, lambs ear.

Also known as ''the sacred herb'', sage is renowned for its euphoric, harmonising properties, and its invigorating energy is profoundly felt throughout Akaad. The core of Akaad revolves around three resins; elemi, frankincense and styrax, which duly impart piercing, richly verdant and woodsy floral aspects.

The amber which unfolds in the base of Akaad is weighty, balmy, savory and spicy, recalling the note’s aqueous provenance as well as its popular interpretation as a golden-orange nugget of savory sensuality. This amber quality is achieved by Thierry’s blend of two ambers of plant and animal origin.

Cistus labdanum creates a floral, voile-like sweetness which is reinforced by the dulcet burn of patchouli and the smoothing balm of vanilla. An archetypal yet iconoclastic amber, Akaad represents the multiple realities of one classic note, simultaneously. Delightful, delicious and mystic.
