Amouage Journey Woman was released in June of 2014. It is the second fragrance in the Portraits of a Life series. “Our lives play out in fragments,” says Chong. “I am making sense of mine by drawing elements from my experiences and morphing them with other art forms to define, articulate and transcribe my world within the compositions of these fragrances.” Inspired by a love of Shanghai Deco and a passion for Chinese cinema, particularly film noir, Chong pays homage to his heritage. (exerpted from Ca Fleure Bon’s website) Under Christopher’s direction, Pierre Negrin and Alberto Morillas have created an incredible fruity floral leather fragrance.
The Candy Perfume Boy - "Journey Woman opens fruity, but unconventionally so. The fruit notes here are rich and honeyed, with the fresh, peachy tones of osmanthus melting into a gloriously orange soup of apricot and mandarin. There is an ever so subtle animalic undertone to the honey, which feels like a glistening, golden nectar – a sparkling sap that drips slowly and envelops the perfume’s fruit and floral notes."
Fragrantica: "This feels like late spring during a warm evening sitting under a mimosa tree in filtered sunlight. Polished, yet naturally comfortable and pleasantly unique."
