Amouage has its origins in the Sultanate of Oman and its perfumes are considered to be some of the most valuable in the world.
Honour Woman is a white floral fragrance inspired by the tragic predicament of Madame Butterfly. The white floral is used to signify the discourse of Madame Butterfly's love. Tuberose is used to represent danger, Jasmine means attachment. Gardenia is secret love. Lily of the Valley is purity of heart. White carnation is innocence and faithfulness. On another level, the white floral represents a tragic love in which honour, fidelity and innocence have been betrayed. A resin base of frankincense, amber and opoponax is used to represent the tragic end of Madame Butterfly's "To Die With Honour".
