Boozy, spicy, with a pinch of green, herbal, animalic qualities
Akro Malt (from the original 2018 Akro collection, created by Olivier Cresp) is a boozy, spicy blend featuring the key accords of whiskey, rum, leather, seaweed, and patchouli, according to Luckyscent, Akro’s main retailer in the US. Certainly the boozy notes are front and center, so in that respect the name of the fragrance is appropriate, but there are definitely some green and herbal aspects, and even a twinge of an animalic side within the leather. So like Haze, there’s something very familiar and warm but also herbal and spicy.

Still, the mix on the whole is very pleasant, and this strikes me as a nice bridge between sweeter boozy fragrances and spicy leather fragrances, somewhere in between, an itch that’s not quite been scratched by another fragrance in recent memory. In having the best of both worlds, it feels like a versatile option, particularly in cooler weather. As with most of the line, it performs well and has some density but is not overbearing, so some controlled sprays would make this a year-round fragrance, just perhaps not in the heat of a summer day.

Like the rest of the line, Malt is priced at $160 for 100ml, very reasonable for niche pricing in today’s market, and is sold via the Luckyscent boutique in the US, as well as Akro’s US site.

Animalic Schnapps Thrush
Malt. The name's on the program. Because the beginning of the fragrance is really extremely alcoholic, and I can't tell the difference between rum and whisky. Although there is also a certain freshness, but for about an hour I actually only have schnapps in my nose.

Then, finally this schnapps note is gone, 'malt' becomes musty, animalistic and I can still smell a bit of leather. It stays that way for a few hours and only at the end there is a green sweetness added, but that doesn't make the 'malt' any better.

The charisma of 'Malt' is fortunately not so strong, nevertheless I would recommend this scent at best for walks in free nature. My shelf life is around seven hours.

Not as bad
Akro is the brand of parfumeur Olivier Cresp and his daughter Anais. For the people that are not familiar with Olvier Cresp he is the nose behind Dolce Gabanna light blue,Versace man eau fraiche, etc… He desided to launch his own niche brand “Akro” based of things people are addicted to, Smoke (cigarettes), Malt (alhcohol), Awake (coffee), etc… In my case I choose to go with Malt. A boosy fragrance mixed with leather, patchouli and seaweed. A beautiful blend that perfectly represents the addiction of alcholcol in the most beautiful way.

Sécrétions Magnifiques 2.0
I haven't been able to test Sécrétions Magnifiques, unfortunately or fortunately, yet, but I don't think it would be much worse.
This stuff is just incredibly disgusting! My first comment and at the same time the most horrible thing I have ever sprayed on my skin. With more than 150 perfumes so far, I've fortunately never found anything like this before. I still thank the Lord that I only sprayed it once on my arm and that I didn't get this horrible brew somehow scrubbed off/covered again after five minutes. I think I'm giving the sample to the contaminant collection.
Just smells disgustingly like a vomited alcoholic after three days of boozing in the station toilet.
I'm really not sensitive when it comes to bad smells, but I almost started choking on that stuff.

Un de mes préférés
Malt fait parti de mes parfums préfères dans la catégorie liquoreux. Il est d un réalisme incroyable sans avoir l impression s avoir fait coule un verre de whisky sur soi. Olivier cresp est un de mes parfumeurs préfères,toujours juste dans ses mélanges,toujours un incroyable équilibre et une originalité folle.
Malt est une merveille.
Dommage je trouve la bouteille pas terrible,un peu cher aussi( mais la parfumerie explose et s envolé un peu trop haut a mon gout) .mais toute la collection Akro est superbe ( sauf ink que je n' aime pas) alors je l ai acheté ainsi que dark, night suivra sans doute

Starts repugnantly as an opened whiskey bottle, but dries down to a very smooth woody gorgeousness. Wonderful smell, complicated and modern

The boozy opening is potent and quite enjoyable. The combo of earthy patchouli, animalic leather and salty kelp ruin it for me though.

A slightly salty and dry, leathery earthy-woody Fall fragrance, with a rather dark and smoky, spicy-boozy opening. Very masculine.

Starts off like a brewery tour and ends at Paco Rabanne pour homme with a dash of booze.
