Olfactive Families

    The story of Akro is the story of a family; of a dynasty that spans from the earliest days of the perfume industry in Grasse to the cutting edge artform of today.
    It all started a few years back, when founder Anaïs Cresp was living in London and learning about the world. Working in the pubs and bars of the vibrant and diverse area of Ladbroke Grove, she became enraptured by the scents around her; by the flower stalls, coffee houses, charcoal grills, by the whiskey and leather of the grand old Irish pubs and the inescapable haze of weed in the air.
    After a long, lost summer of indulging in everything the city had to offer, Anaïs hit on an idea; that these distinctive aromas could be bottled and turned into fragrances. Perhaps, instead of just fruits and flowers, you could wear your favourite vice on your skin.
