The fruity combination of light pepper, cardamom and a general fruitiness - rhubarb with hints of ripe apple - makes for a pleasant opening. Not too fresh, but light and bright.

The drydown turns floral- muguet in the forefront. Seconded by carnation, the main player arises a bit later: a bright tuberose, open, bright and lacking any waxiness. Lovely!

Again another turnaround in the base: some incense, with opoponax and an ambergris-like undertone adding further depth.

I get moderate sillage, excellent projection and a very good nine hours of longevity on my skin.

This spring scentís three phases are contrasting with each other very nicely, making for an entertaining array of olfactory experiences. The main drawback is the egregious use of synthetics. 3.25/5.

The opening left me unimpressed, thinking "just another floral". Then the tuberose developed and I fell in love with it. It made me think of hypnotic poison, but less powerful. It could be worn in winter.

Honour Woman has a sweet and fruity white floral open with lots of jasmine and tuberose. The notes were blended nicely, but not over-blended with a high projection. The middle softens, and stays fairly linear. It projects a bit more than a skin scent at six hours. It is an amazing, well-made white floral perfume.

Sometimes, as in Gold or Lyric, Amouageís paired masculine and feminine releases are indeed twins. Mercifully, thatís not the case here, and Honour Woman has nothing to do with the rather disappointing Honour Man. The bad news? Honour Woman opens on a big, soapy, muguet top note thatís a dead ringer for Glade brand lily-of-the-valley air freshener. Anything this nakedly chemical and cheap-smelling is shocking coming from the house that brought us Dia, Gold, and Lyric Woman, but somehow I donít think the effect was meant to be ironic.

The muguet introduces a conventional white flower accord of jasmine, clean musk and the faintest trace of tuberose, none of which is terribly interesting in context, and all of which is effectively spoiled by the potent and persistent air freshener muguet. A complete train wreck of a fragrance, if you ask me. Had anyone opened a bottle of Andy Tauerís Carillon pour un Ange or vintage Diorissimo while Honour Woman was in preparation, they would have given up on the whole thing.

l was keen to see what this house could do with a white floral - one of my favourite genres - & intrigued having read that it was inspired by Puccini's Madame Butterfly.
ln the opening l get a fresh, cool, slightly tart note of rhubarb, supported by a white floral accord, & reminiscent of Byredo's beautiful La Tulipe. Sadly, this quickly fades, leaving a kind of musty lily, & no detectable tuberose, jasmine or gardenia, to my nose. Two hours in, there's a creamy, ambery sweetness, & then a subtle smidgeon of vetiver in the base. Seven hours in, it's almost gone.
This is not an altogether unpleasant scent, but l found it disappointing for its lack of depth, complexity & projection. After that lovely opening, it all falls rather flat & quiet, & does no justice at all to the beauty of white flowers. Certainly not worthy of the price, or, l would say, the name. lf you love the opening of this one, l highly recommend you try La Tulipe; it sustains its beauty for far longer, while being quite a bit cheaper.

Muddled mess of overly sweet white flowers. It's a bad tuberose ruining the mix here. Tuberose has to be kept on a leash.
Imagine a drunken wedding guest knocking over the cake and trampling it into the decorations. Just a sweet mess everywhere.
This is why we can't have nice things.
