M. Micallef Akowa features top notes of bergamot and orange blossom; middle notes of cocoa and fig leaves; and base notes of patchouli, vanilla, vetiver, ambergris and musk. It is an eau de parfum, edp.
Akowa is named for an African tribe that keeps its secrets and mysteries to themselves and their heirs. The fragrance is based on roots of mysterious African plants and combines a secret ingredient with other notes to create a profound scent that reveals itself in mystery.
Fragrantica: "Gorgeous vetiver musk based fragrance from the woefully underrated house of Micallef. This evocative beauty (reminiscent of my African travels) mixes in gorgeous Tchouraï and vetiver root extracts with musk and a bunch of other notes including orange blossom, bergamot, cocoa, and amber. The result is a masculine fresh cologne that radiates off my skin."
Fragrantica: "Honestly, this wears me more than I wear it, but I am fascinated by it, and the man who could pull this off . . . well, I'd be impressed."
