Amouage Honour for men is a spicy, woody fragrance with a classic composition. This Eau de Parfum from an independent luxurious perfume brand based in London, which draws inspiration from the rich and varied heritage of its birthplace in the Sultanate of Oman, is remarkably manly, exciting and dramatic, and like all Amouage perfumes, uniquely inspiring.
The Honour Eau de Parfum for men was launched alongside its variant for women, both inspired by the famous tragic story of Madame Butterfly, a geisha who married an American and spent three years waiting in vain for his return. The often-adapted story of Madame Butterfly is supposedly based on true events. The two Honour fragrances are inspired by the last act of Giacomo Puccini’s immortal opera from 1904 in which the heroine (Cio-cio-san, known as Butterfly) cannot bear her tragic fate any longer and commits suicide by hara-kiri. Honour, paradoxically, offers a story of reconciliation. It is an elegy and a homage, appealing to memories of the past.
Amouage Honour for men symbolises Madame Butterfly’s son, whom his father wants to take to America, striking the final blow to the desperate woman. The renowned perfume designer Nathalie Feisthauer created a fragrance that hints at a future return of the son, wanting to face his mother’s fate and come to terms with who he is. Amouage Honour opens with a veritable explosion of pepper. Notes of pink and black pepper in the head of the Eau de Parfum are followed by the heart and its accords of geranium, nutmeg and elemi resin to symbolise that the son of Madame Butterfly is a young man full of fire. The comforting, beautifully blended notes of patchouli, incense, cedar, vetiver, tonka beans and musk in the base represent the final reconciliation at the end of our hero’s painful quest, the lament of a son paying tribute to his mother. The conclusion of Amouage Honour perfectly evokes the denouement of the turbulent existential drama.
The Amouage Honour Eau de Parfum will be appreciated by all men who enjoy fragrances full of emotion. It will forever win the hearts of those who like spicy, woody fragrances with a dramatic and yet perfectly and classically balanced composition, and will delight everyone who can appreciate true quality and precision at each step of perfume-making. Honour is suitable for day and evening wear throughout the year. It will always help its wearer to accentuate his masculinity and give him an air of exciting drama.
Besides the arresting fragrances, which are the result of a manufacturing process meeting the strictest standards of quality, all the perfumes made by Amouage also stand out with their luxurious packaging. The Honour bottle, with its beautifully milky white colour, excites with its elegant, sleek and sumptuous design. It features gold decorations and is finished with a Swarovski crystal. The packaging is completed by an immensely stylish and delicately sophisticated light box with gold accents.
Amouage Honour – a manly and dramatic ode to an immortal story of love, betrayal and reconciliation.
