S c ent f rom Oman
Amouage is a niche luxury fragrance house that draws inspiration from its
birthplace of the Sultanate of Oman. The House is renowned for creating some of
the most finely crafted, distinctive and exotic fragrances in the world, concocted
by internationally recognised perfumers in Grasse, France and under the guidance
of Amouage Creative Director, Christopher Chong. The Amouage product range
further extends to Home and Bath & Body collections, as well as a selection of
fine leather goods and accessories.
Amouage is proud to announce the launch of Honour, its new fragrance for Man and
Woman. As with previous olfactory ‘chapters’, Creative Director Christopher Chong
set about telling a story with this new fragrance. Inspired by the tragic denouement of
Puccini’s Madame Butterfly, Chong devised a lyrical scenario in which Butterfly’s child,
now a man, recalls early memories of his mother.
Honour Woman is concocted by the House’s Creative Director, Christopher Chong,
and perfumers Alexandra Carlin and Violaine Collas. Honour Woman is a white, floral
fragrance with contrasting woody base. Notes of Frankincense, Amber and Opoponax
in the base are warmed by floral heart-notes of Jasmine, Tuberose, Gardenia, Lily of
the Valley and Carnation. Top-notes of Pepper, Rhubarb Leaf and Coriander finish the
fragrance with a fresh, green, lightness.
Honour Man, created again by Christopher Chong and perfumer Nathalie Feishauer, is
a spicy and woody fragrance, accentuated by top-notes of Pink and Black Pepper. The
heart-notes of the fragrance artfully blend Geranium, Elemi and Nutmeg which finally
reveal an elemental, woody base featuring Patchouli, Frankincense, Cedar wood, Vetiver,
Tonka Beans and Musk.
These evocative, elegant fragrances add a new facet to the House’s repertoire of
fragrances, demonstrating yet again their commitment to the finest ingredients, the most
artful blending and an uncompromising dedication to perfection. Simply Delightful!
