Amouage Honour Woman, 2011

Honour Woman (2011.  Perfumers Violaine Collas and Alexandra Carlin.) is a jumbo floriental that somehow sits comfortably between the ‘proper’ white floral and the tropical floral.  Captures the best of both and utterly draws me in.

I suspect the Cio-Cio San  schtick from Amouage marketing is smoke and mirrors on a large scale. Unless of course the libretto to Madame Butterfly mentions that Cio-Cio San loves her a good trashy floriental.
