Akro Awake Eau de Parfum

AWAKE | Awake revisits the craziness of coffee through a concentrate of unstable energy that finds its power in bitter scents.

Everyone knows where they first developed really fell in love with coffee. For us, it was the feted Bluebells Cafe on Portobello Road - the place we came to get our morning fix, the antidote to the night before. Awake is a fragrance that captures the evocative smell of a warm coffee shop on a cold West London day; the freshly ground beans, the steam, the heat, the bitter luxury.

TOP: Santos Coffee, Italian Lemon
MIDDLE: Green Cardamom
BASE: Haitian Vetiver

Akro Fragrances

Akro, a distinguished perfume house, offers a unique olfactory experience that transcends traditional floral and fruity scents. Embracing the concept that addictions and vices can be transformed into captivating fragrances, Akro delves into the world of unconventional aromas. Their creations include the bitter essence of morning espresso, the smoky notes of bourbon, the distinctive scent of hashish, and the sharp aroma of a post-coital cigarette. Akro's fragrances are a bold blend of unusual elements like warm leather, black coffee, top-shelf whiskey, dark chocolate, sticky weed, and strong absinthe, reflecting a daring approach to perfumery. The inception of Akro traces back to its founder, Anaïs Cresp, whose experiences in London's Ladbroke Grove inspired her. Surrounded by diverse scents from flower stalls, coffee houses, charcoal grills, and the leather and whiskey of Irish pubs, Anaïs envisioned capturing these distinct aromas in perfume bottles. This vision led to the collaboration with her father, Olivier Cresp, a master perfumer renowned for his work on fragrances like Dolce & Gabbana's Light Blue and Mugler’s Angel. Together, they embarked on a journey to bring Akro to life. Rooted in the streets of Ladbroke Grove, the heart of Akro's inspiration, the brand pays homage to the area's rich cultural tapestry. From Trellick Tower to Portobello Market, and the vibrant music scene, Akro's creations encapsulate the essence of this dynamic neighborhood. This innovative perfume house caters to those who seek to express their individuality through bold and unconventional scents, capturing the essence of indulgence and the allure of the forbidden.
