Amouage presents a new pair of fragrances available for both men and women. Amouage Honour for Men and Amouage Honour for Women are inspired by the tragic story of geisha Cio-Cio-San from “Madame Butterfly”. These perfumes evoke love, hope and despair caused by sufferings and the unrealized love. Amouage Honour fragrances are created by perfumers Alexandra Carlin and Violaine Collas.
The house of Amouage chose white flowers as the symbol of unrequited love inviting us into a miniature garden full of jasmine, gardenias, tuberose, lilies and carnations notes.
Amouage Honour Woman is described as “a lavish and sophisticated white floral mélange that captures the tragic predicament of Madame Butterfly. Each ingredient embraces a plethora of emotion and meaning – sweet tuberose represents danger; jasmine, attachment; gardenia, secret love and lily of the valley, purity of heart. A harmoniously rich resin base of frankincense, amber and opoponax injects dimension, depth and complexity.”
Amouage Honour Man is said to “resonate with a spicy and woody blend that invokes memories of the past, heightened by conflicting accords of pink berry and exuberant black pepper. A filial elegy to the memory of Madame Butterfly, notes of elemi and geranium in the heart expose an opulent and evocative earthy base of patchouli, frankincense, vetiver and tonka beans.”
Amouage Honour for Men and Amouage Honour for Women are available in 50 and 100 ml Eau de Parfum.
These fragrances can be found now at Selfridges in the UK.
