ABOUT THE BRAND: AKRO

A celebration of excess, turning vice into virtue.

To say that AKRO pushes boundaries in fragrance is understatement. Truer to say they’ve broken the boundaries wide open. In contrast with the sophistication and sensuality that often define scent, AKRO finds beauty in our addictions, elegance in transgression.  

With its willful indulgence, it gives you license to wear your vices proudly:

“We make fragrances for people that don’t like to say no.”  

The international fragrance house began in London with father/daughter duo Olivier (a renowned perfumer) and Anaïs Cresp, along with Anaïs’ partner-in-excess Jack Miskelly. Together, they created six intoxicating scents, free of gender labels, inspired by the grit of West London, and in favor of all things illicit: drugs, cigarettes, alcohol and more.

SHOP THE STORY


Kinetic and invigorating, like your morning espresso fix. 

The first of the day: the bitter scent of strong coffee, infused with cardamom, is bracing and luxurious. Smoothed with a drop of milky vetiver and accented with Italian lemon peel, the moment is complete.
