Honour Woman - The Perfume Lounge

Honour Woman

Inspired by Puccini’s opera Madame Butterfly, Amouage Honour Woman is a delicate rendition of white florals. “Death with honour, ” proclaims the heroine before dying, “when one can no longer live in honour.”

Honour opens with a tart rhubarb note and ends on a smooth base of subtly spicy resins, amber and almost imperceptible leather. But the showstopper of Honour Woman is its floral heart. Gardenia, which is often deployed to bring out its hot-house flower sultriness, is here transparent and light, flanked like a princess in white with her attendants lily-of-the-valley, jasmine, carnation and a very subdued tuberose. 

As it dries down, traces of rhubarb remain as its subtly spicy and warm base rises up.

Honour Woman is housed in a white crystal bottle with a gold-plated cap affixed with a white opal Svarovski crystal.

Notes: Pepper, rhubarb, coriander, jasmine, tuberose, gardenia, lily of the valley, carnation, vetiver, frankincense, amber, opoponax, leather
