Not my Cup of Tea
I have tested Akaster several times now and have been desperately looking for an understandable reason why Akaster is so expensive and only available exclusively at Harrods but I just can't find any reason!
Same problem as Pegasus: It smells flowery and spicy and does not develop at all in my case! I also cannot smell the lemon, cardamom, guaiac wood etc. I have a flowery smell (probably the rose(s) and rose geranium?), you can also smell the pepper very easily out or it always tickles in my nose when I sniff it and I thought I had to sneeze, even though I am healthy! The spicy thing I smell might possibly be the oud? I have no idea what oud smells like, as I am not familiar with unusual scents (oud, beaver's horny, civet, ...). Everything else that is listed as fragrances, I can't sniff at any time and as I said, Akaster somehow doesn't go through a development with me, it just smells the same flowery and spicy from beginning to end.

Whether it's my nose or my skin or whatever, I can't tell, I just don't know. I also find it a little strange, because Herod and Layton unfold and develop wonderfully with me and smell simply heavenly to me, but with Pegasus and Akaster it is just the opposite, nothing happens.

Shelf life is good, but I don't know about Sillage. But the bottle looks pretty like all Marlys (at least I like the bottles).

But Akaster is good for going out or eating out and possibly also for business, as long as one does not exaggerate.
