Honour Man by Amouage Review
You probably would not make the connection between Honour Man and Madame Butterfly in an instant: one has moved certain audiences for years, and the other is an uninspired fragrance. The only good things it has going for it are good performance and nice green notes, but everything else falls apart. The accords are synthetic, the musk too harsh, and the overall impression is quite forgettable. It would be honorable to give this a pass and head somewhere else.
Does not smell like most men’s perfumes to us
Some of the green notes lift the mood a little
Above average performance
We find the accords to smell very artificial
The musk feels peppery and harsh
Base is overplayed and generic
Save Big At:
Amouage released Honour Woman in 2011 with a partner: the Honour Man. Both are inspired by the tragic opera Madama Butterfly in which the titular character takes her own life. The masculine side of things is spicy and woodsy, and was created by Nathalie Feisthauer. The notes for the fragrance include red pepper, black pepper, elemi, geranium, nutmeg, cedar, musk, patchouli, frankincense and tonka.
