Amouage Honour Woman is one of the creations of Amouage artistic director, Christopher Chong. Amouage Honour Woman takes its inspiration from Puccini's opera Madame Butterfly. Madame Butterfly says "death with honor" as she is dying. The opening is a green floral with some light fruit. The rhubarb at the open is charming, tart and simply perfect, leading the way into a gorgeous floral center, grounded with incense and leather notes.
Review of Amouage Honour Woman
The Candy Perfume Boy - "Honour Woman opens on sweet and spicy green notes, it’s a rather subdued and soft opening for an Amouage scent but wonderful nonetheless. The opening feels cool and there appears to be a touch of menthol lurking in the background. Rhubarb leaves give the top notes a green, pollen like sourness that compliments the sweeter notes. The florals in the heart are so well blended that each flower shows it’s signature facet at different times during Honour Woman’s development. The dry green of jasmine, the hot rubberiness of tuberose, the mushroomy cold of gardenia and the sharp sweetness of lily of the valley all appear separately but together they convey a beautiful floral creaminess that keeps this perfumista’s nose pressed firmly against his wrist. Honour Woman has a surprisingly warm base considering it’s cool start. Amouage’s signature frankincense appears shimmering and golden throughout the base. The frankincense is a perfect pairing for the florals and a nice dose of sandalwood rounds everything off wonderfully."
