Lubin - Akkad - Eau de Parfum
Akkad is a luminous amber perfume,mystical but also sensual, a descentinto the profane pleasures of ancienttyrants, an exhalation of sacredoils, and the spicy skin scent ofgorgeous, willowy slave girls lyingback limply on divans and silk sheets.
Delphine thierry, who composed this creation, imagined an amber note that is both spicy andluminous. The opposite therefore of the dark,mystical ambers that bring to mind the smoke offrankincense in ancient temples. Akkad amberopens with an aromatic citrus head note ofmandarin and bergamot, enhanced by clary sage.
Clary sage, also known as "the sacred herb", isrenowned for its euphoric, harmonising properties. The heart unfolds in the rich, balmy, spicy notes offrankincense and styrax, evocative of the ancienteast, cooled by elemi, a fresh, soothing herb, andintensified by cardamom.The base with its two ambers of plant and animalorigin centres on the woody richness of patchouli,sweetened with a sensual vanilla.
