M.Micallef new fragrance for men, AKOWA, named after the African tribe which keeps secrets and mysteries to themselves and their successors.
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
