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.
