Strong, accurate, smoke blend with spices
My first sampling from the house of Akro is Smoke, which frankly nails the concept better than I possible could’ve expected in terms of accuracy, smelling of an ensemble of different smoke smells, including cigarette, cigar, and charcoal/barbecue, coming off somehow both appetizing and evocative of an upcoming meal but also a lot of people smoking in my vicinity, which can be a bit off-putting. It’s certainly smoky, but also spicy and woody. It’s fairly dense and makes a very strong impression but there’s enough space and air in the fragrance to appreciate some of its nuance; it’s not strictly a cloud of smoke but more of very strong wafts of smoke. Other notable contributors are cade, a favorite type of juniper, the use of which in Imaginary Authors A City on Fire adds to its spicy side, and a mix of tonka and benzoin that do slightly round things out with a bit of sweetness.

As a first impression of the house, even though I’m not in love with the fragrance, Smoke hopefully provides a good idea of the audacity and artistry of its founder, Olivier Cresp, and the concepts within it, as I’m looking forward to trying other Akro entries, especially Awake.

Smoke performs very well, with very loud projection in the opening hours and strong longevity thereafter. Akro’s fragrances seem to be sold exclusively in the US via Luckyscent, with each fragrance in their collection being sold for $160 for 100ml, very reasonable pricing.

Smoke | Powerhouse form Akro Fragrances
Basically it smells exactly how its named. If you love incense resinous scents, Smoke is great for you. ⁣

It’s a rich and opulent tobacco and benzoin bomb that laches onto your skin. It would make you smell like if you spent a night in a really sophisticated jazz bar where people were smoking some high quality cigars. ⁣

The smoke in this scent is very raw and ashy (in a good way) and its reminiscent of a campfire smoke which when mixed by tonka bean really makes the scent wearable and cozy ????⁣

Smoke is a powerhouse. Its the note of Smoke beautifully blended with tobacco, cade oil & the sweetness of Tonka. ⁣
If you are into smokey/ incense scents, this won't disappoint you!

My Akro Smoke Review On YouTube
One of my perfume obsessions as of late is Akro Fragrances Smoke. It was a love at second sniff recently at Luckyscent ScentBar DTLA when I was there a few weeks back and I've just been wearing it plenty. Today on the channel I have a full review of Smoke by Akro plus an overview of the Akro brand and Oliver Cresp the perfumer behind the Akro Fragrances. So if you like tobacco perfumes and Smoke shines in the heat btw, and want to learn about a new niche perfume house, Akro and their 6 perfumes inspired by 6 different addictions please watch my video on YouTube.

Tobacco, nicotine, benzoin... a realistic depiction of an ashtray full of burning cigarettes mixed with sweet pipe smoke. Dark & evocative.
