Amouage has launched Honour, a new fragrance duo:
‘Honour’, the latest set of fragrances from the house of Amouage unfold the tale of love and betrayal, hope and despair, characterised by Giacomo Puccini's most heartfelt and evocative masterpiece, Madame Butterfly.
Honour Woman ~ "Honour Woman is 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." Additional notes for the floral fragrance include pepper, rhubarb leaves, coriander, carnation, vetiver and leather.
Honour Man ~ "Honour Man from the house of Amouage resonates 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." Additional notes for the spicy woods scent include nutmeg, cedarwood and musk.
Amouage Honour Woman and Honour Man can be found now at Selfridges in the UK, in 50 and 100 ml Eau de Parfum. (via selfridges)
