Honour Man description

Honour Man is the male version of the Honour series from Amouage.

Amouage Woman is a dramatic white floral symbolizing the story of Madame Butterfly from the world of opera. For those of you who aren’t familiar, her life does not end well, and this is depicted in Amouage Woman by an array of dark resins to stand-in for her tragic circumstances.

Amouage Man picks up after the death of Madame Butterfly, and is listed on the Amouage website as a “filial eulogy to past memories.” Amouage Man is the scent symbol of the funeral farewell from Madame Butterfly’s only child.

It is a stark and severe perfume: the top notes are nothing but pink and black pepper in a confrontational volley of howling, yearning spice.

The pepper combination is bold, direct and extremely masculine. Right away you realize this perfume is announcing an emotional state completely different than the typical citrusy,”What up, dude!” intro of most men’s colognes. Amouage Man begins unapologetically, with a blunt, sharp, shock to the system.

The heart is just as intense. Before the pepper spices completely evaporate, a trio of geranium, elemi, and nutmeg coalesce around them and drain the spices of their sharp, crackling energy. A haunting coolness with nutmeg’s disturbed-earth aromatics slowly opens, like the door to an ancient burial tomb. The heart in Amouage Man depicts the weight of buried emotions; there is nothing bright beckoning to the world here.

The dry down attempts to console with tightly wound cedar, and subdued patchouli and frankincense spices. In the background, a lone sweet note of tonka bean drifts aimlessly behind the woods and spices.

A warm, green vetiver note follows the tonka, and offers a verdant ray of hope in this fragrance. The smoky sweet tonka and freshness of the vetiver humbly usher this perfume out into the light again.

Amouage Man has two distinct events happening simultaneously as it progresses. One is that it is a bold, daring and ultra-masculine fragrance that you can enjoy without any knowledge of its operatic inspiration.

The other is that this is an exquisite scent story of grief, loss, and confusion that pulls no punches in the telling. It takes vision to create a perfume with zero citrus notes, and nothing bright to smell until the very end.

The theme of Amouage Man is that sometimes hope arrives only after a loss, but it is there nonetheless. This fragrance is a tremendous achievement in perfumery, and once again proves this house fashions genuine olfactive art masquerading as sophisticated scent.

Smells good when you just smell the bottle, on skin (and not just me, on multiple people) it smells like baby powder mixed with old man. And the scent is extremely long lasting and strong, which in any other case could be good, but here, as a 23 year old man, I couldn't get it off fast enough.

This scent was pleasant at first blast. As the scent began to settle I thought it to have a warm, spicy, woodsy smell which I enjoyed. The real test was whether my wife would notice. She took a sniff and was impressed. However, I prefer that I wouldn't have to tell her or anyone else to come close to take a sniff but notice as I walked by. This scent didn't seem to carry far. And after a while it just seemed to fade.

It is a good one but it doesn't make me want to run out and buy it. It starts out kind of spicy and a little floral, but the floral settles down or maybe I just get used to it.

This scent was very confusing to me. I sprayed it on paper and "ha chew" the pepper/spice note was very overwhelming to me. I was convinced I would never wear it. But then, I decided to try it on my skin (what the hell). Just one spray to my wrist and the pepper/spice was very prominent. Within about 20 minutes, it toned down to a very fresh spicy powdery scent ... not bad at all. Definitely a very cold weather scent ... the spices will kill you in the summer heat.

After diving into the Amouage house from owning Interlude and Reflection I expected a good smell from Honour Man but instead I got something similar to Bvlgari Man - a great scent with no longetivity .. Nonetheless it's a nice scent but doesn't wow me ..
