Probably my most emotional fragrance to date
I was looking for Akro fragrances for a long time, as they are considered different or at least take a different approach to the usual suspects.

The first one from the house was Bake and I have to say it hit me completely emotionally, especially at this time of year, the pre-Christmas season.

Let's start with the fragrance.
At the beginning, the fragrance is very citrusy paired with a good rum note.
The start reminds you a lot of those little bottles you use for baking, with lemon and rum inside. Complete baking feeling.

Shortly after the citrusy rum start, the praline, cream and a hint of vanilla are recognizably added and this combination reminds me completely of baking dough.
Paired with the initial notes, the vibes really come across in which you just fill these little ampoules into the dough with the flavors of lemon, rum and minimal vanilla / powdered sugar.

Right now this fragrance has hit me completely emotionally! This fragrance reminds me of the time when my mother was still alive and of course started baking in the run-up to Christmas and used exactly these elements.
There are so many memories that come to mind, which run visually in front of me, that they simply moved me to tears.
Even now, writing these words makes me very emotional and it's really incredible what a fragrance can do and evoke thoughts/memories in you.

Even if this fragrance is not quite my DNA, I would still like to thank the perfumer for evoking a piece of my most wonderful memory with this fragrance and for that I am infinitely grateful! I will definitely get myself a sample again and again and test/spray it again and again in the run-up to Christmas to bring back some of these emotional memories! I also believe that many will have their memories of their mother or even grandma with these certain baking aromas.
This is another reason why I would never wear this fragrance, because it just hits me too deeply emotionally every time, but still with a lot of joy and sadness at the same time!

Towards the drydown, the scent becomes more vanilla, but the citrus is still perceptible and reminds me of how a pastry, whether lemon cake or other baked goods, comes out of the oven warm and is cut and all the aromas spread! Simply amazing! So the fragrance remains and then becomes more and more gentle.

The longevity is ok and the sillage is not outstanding, but as I said, the memory it evokes is exactly what makes this fragrance for me!
Thank you for this wonderful and above all emotional fragrance!

Lemon sponge cake with powdered sugar
A super realistic gourmand fragrance! It smells very delicious cake, sugar, lemon... just delicious! Similar fragrances I have tried, a good and popular example would be Lira by Xerjoff; Bake is exactly what I would have liked from Lira!
After spraying I smell slightly bitter lemon peel, quite a lot of vanilla and rum. After a few minutes, this is a lemon sponge cake with light rum extract and lots of powdered sugar on it.

Yummy lemon cupcake
This was a very successful blind buy for me. I first fell in love with Citrus Gourmands when I tried the sadly discontinued Riviera Postcard by And Other Stories. When I saw that Bake had been released, I honestly couldn't wait to sample before I bought, so I purchased the 30ml straight away.

This smells exactly like it's supposed to - a yummy lemon cupcake. The lemon top notes are, however, unfortunately fleeting, although the praline drydown does last a really long time. This is a gorgeous summery gourmand!

1 to 1 simple lemon essential oil with vanilla
If you like the scent, you can buy lemon essential oil and vanilla essential oil at any drugstore and mix them in a ratio of 60 to 40
& "Bake" is ready!
You've saved money and it lasts even longer.

Please, you're welcome!

So absolutely nothing special for me, a basic that you can replicate 1 to 1 with household remedies.
Not a high-quality fragrance.
You don't need to spend your money on this.
Unfortunately absolutely overrated. An inferior fragrance that couldn't be less complex.

Sweet, lemon vanilla cake, well done
Sampling the most recent release from Akro, Bake, inspired by a scent of a bake shop involving lemon, vanilla, praline, brown sugar, rum, and Chantilly cream, a creamy vanilla lemon cake of sorts. It has a good mix of the sweet and tart aspects, being sugary but not overwhelmingly so. It’s definitely a gourmand for gourmand lovers, though, quite sweet, a little cake-ish, and a little sugary, with a healthy lemon note that nonetheless does not take over items of tartness of general citrus character. The whole fragrance feels well conceived and patiently balanced.

This reminds me of a couple of other similar gourmand scents, like Kerosene Unknown Pleasures and Xerjoff Lira, though all three are distinct in their own ways, as there is a bit more caramel in the other two, a bit more vanilla in Bake.

In the US, Akro fragrances are sold via the house website as well as Luckyscent, and the current brand pricing is $180 for 100ml, in EDP concentration, still under the $2/ml for niche that I find to be quite reasonable in the evolving market. This is probably my favorite of the line, along with the coffee-led Awake.

Beautifully balanced lemon cake batter opening, with a delicious brown sugar drydown. A lighter gourmand I can wear year-round.

Like someone took a lemon cake fresh from the oven and bottled the scent.

Vanilla cake "basket" with lemon fudge filling and crunchy burnt sugar grains on the teeth.
It's unbearably sweet for me.
