Born in 1768, Ancaster Crazy was a world-famous, award-winning thoroughbred bred by the Duke of Axe. In honor of this specimen of uncommon talent and beauty, Parfums de Marly presents Akaster, a rare and powerful woodsy floral with a strong sense of legacy. Redolent with poise and nobility, Akaster is built around that most sublime of pairings- rich, lush rose de taif and sophisticated agarwood- but a cadre of gorgeous supplemental notes move the composition from the realm of a typically Middle Eastern scent profile into something far for unique and compelling. Akaster opens with a resolute freshness, bright Sicilian lemon, crushed aromatic leaves and green cypress coming together with dynamic energy. In the heart, rich, masculine geranium and sweet cardamom weave in and around the oudh and rose core, giving this recognizably Eastern duo a timeless touch of Western classicism, and leading into the warm leather tones of the long-lasting base notes. Is Akaster another oudh-and-rose fragance? Sure, in the same way that a Bentley Flying Spur is another luxury sedan. The difference, as always, is in the details- and Akaster has detail to spare.
