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.
