An iconic duo: Amouage Man an Woman

Amouage celebrates the tenth anniversary of its iconic duo of fragrances: Honour Man and Woman. An enduring success for this olfactory tribute to the masterpiece of Madame Butterfly.

The new art images are an ode to beauty and fragility, a metaphor of a tragic love in which honour, fidelity and innocence have been betrayed – the death of the soul.

Amouage Honour Woman

Wonour Woman was created by Alexandra Carlin and Violaine Collas, is a white floral fragrance signifying the discourse of Butterfly’s love. Tuberose is used to represent danger. Jasmine is attachment. Gardenia is secret love. Lily of the Valley is purity of heart. White carnation is innocence and faithfulness. A resin base of frankincense, amber and opoponax represents the tragic end of Butterfly’s ’To Die with Honour’.

Amouage Honour Man

Honour Man was created by Nathalie Feisthauer, is a spicy woody fragrance invoking memories of the past signified by a mixture of disturbing and conflicting accords starting with a burst of pink pepper and black pepper. Geranium and elemi represent a filial elegy to the honour and memory of Madame Butterfly. A woody base evolves with a musky allusion to this story of reconciliation.

Amouage Honour Man and Woman are available at Amouage boutiques, and very selected stores around the world. Come into the wonderful world of Amouage.

They are shaping a new era in fragrance through everything they do. Imagination fills the air with possibility. And every elegant drop has the power to touch the senses, the soul and the world. Hero, created cooperatively by several perfumers from all around the world, was born from the idea to create an olfactive tribute to caregivers, who are still fighting COVID-19 in many countries.


With the aim to say “thank you” to medical staff everywhere, who tirelessly have been taking care of the many patients since the beginning of the COVID 19 epidemic, seventeen Symrise fine fragrance perfumers from around the globe participated in this project to recognize and thank all the first responders who make lives better during this difficult time.

Each perfumer added one renewable raw material to the fragrance to create the Hero, a unisex Eau de Cologne. Maurice Roucel (Tangerine from Madagascar), Annick Menardo (Bergamot), Wei Ling Png (Vanillin), Marine Ipert (Ambroxide), Alexandra Carlin (Ambretolide), Pierre-Constantin Guéros (Ginger from Madagascar), Lowiah Xin Hang (Ginger from Madagascar), Alienor Massenet (Gaïac wood), Patricia Bilodeau (Globalide), Fanny Grau (Sandalwood), Philippe Paparella (Benzoin), Leslie Gauthier (Lemon), Isaac Sinclair (Ambrostar), Émilie Copperman (Ambrette seed), Stéphane Bengana (Vétiver from Madagascar), Nathalie Benareau (Iso E Super), Christelle Laprade, Carlos Vinals, and David Appel (Cypress, Iris & Rose), borrowing their attributes from the traditional Eau de Cologne structure.

We believe in the power of perfume to touch our senses, our soul and the world. This is why we have developed a fragrance for all heroes who, through their tireless and continuous efforts, are helping to fight the coronavirus crisis. Hero is our way of thanking them for the work they do.

Ricardo Omori, Symrice SVP Global Fine Fragrance.

Hero was created for both men and women. It interweaves ingredients from traditional Eau de Cologne and brings in contemporary notes like Ambrostar, a Symrise captive, musk and vanilla. The result presents an invigorating and supportive fragrance that combines energy and comfort. The top note exudes a composition of Mandarin from Madagascar, bergamot with a boost of peppermint and ginger. The heart contains warm notes of ambrette seeds, orris and rose. The base note gives the fragrance fullness and modernity with guaiac wood, sandalwood, vetiver from Madagascar, cypress and renewable vanillin.

The choice of a Cologne is not trivial, since it was originally used in the 18th century as a miracle remedy and hygiene product, before becoming ‘trendy’ at the Court of Kings. “By complementing the essential products of daily life, perfumes improve our quality of life. In the current situation, we want to please [Caregivers -ed] and show them our greatest gratitude for all their daily efforts”, explained Ricardo Omori.


Hero has been distributed by Symrise since May 19, to these everyday heroes to whom we owe so much, located in France, the United States, China, Singapore, Brazil and Dubai. The Symrise group wanted to express their gratitude by providing “a dose of well-being and comfort”.

Symrise Hero will also be available for purchase online through AuParfum at a price of 69 Euro including tax, and 100% of the revenue will be donated to the SOS Anosmie association.





Amouage Honour

Amouage presents a new pair of fragrances available for both men and women. Amouage Honour for Men and Amouage Honour for Women are inspired by the tragic story of geisha Cio-Cio-San from ‘Madame Butterfly’. These perfumes evoke love, hope and despair  caused by sufferings and the unrealized love. Amouage Honour fragrances are created by perfumers Alexandra Carlin and Violaine Collas.

The house of Amouage chose white flowers as the symbol of unrequited love inviting us into a miniature garden full of jasmine, gardenias, tuberose, lilies and carnations notes.

Amouage Honour Woman

Amouage Honour Woman is described as 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.


Amouage Honour Man

Amouage Honour Man is said to resonate 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.
