Aki (meaning "autumn") is gentle and cuddly. Not particularly new in concept -- citrus, herbs, sweet dry, not foody vanilla, amber, patchouli, vetiver, soft woods -- and a muted, powdery drydown without the stale, musky aftertaste. There might be some "salty" notes in Aki, I believe. It does not produce much of a throw, stays close to the wearer's skin. Less sweet and lighter than Anne Pliska, does not have the gourmand aspect of IPdF Ambra de Nepal, however, sweeter than than Marc Jacobs Amber Splash, warmer and more intriguing than L'Artisan's Ambre Extreme, and lacks the chocolate and "darkness" of Hermes Ambre Narguile. Amber in Aki is well blended with other -- rooty, barky (is it a word?
), herbal and almost fruity -- elements, and it is pure loveliness.
I am not familiar with the one you have mentioned, but I can tell you one thing: Aki is not a relative to Ambre Sultan despite amber, and is diametrically opposite of becker.eshaya Golden Amber despite its amber again.
Seems like I have been on the amber kick this Fall-Winter. MPG Ambre Precieux and, believe it or not, Mauboussin are in the lead.
