Amouage presents a new fragrant pair in 2011 – Honour Woman and Honour Man. These perfumes are dedicated to the tragic story of Madame Butterfly, the geisha Cio-Cio-San who married an American and waited for his return for three years. More specifically, the inspiration for the new creations was drawn from the last act of the eponymous opera in which Madame commits suicide.
Honour Man is a spicy – woody fragrance of classical compositions. The male version symbolizes the son of Madame Butterfly. Perfumer Nathalie Feisthauer composed it out of spicy notes of red and black pepper at the top. The heart of geranium, elemi and nutmeg is placed on the intensive woody base of patchouli, cedar, vetiver, frankincense, musk and tonka bean.
Available as 50 and 100 ml EDP.
