A little two heavy
Maybe for a special occasion, but overall too heavy for my taste.

Reminds me of a day in church sitting on the second row. Not for me. More for someone in late 50s to late 70s.

Amouage Honour woman
The scent has tones of floral with under tones that are earthy. It lasts a long time. The scent is not overpowering, I could smell my husbands cologne while wearing this perfume. I got several positive comments while out with my husband.

I wanted to like it, but it was too much for me. Definitely a perfume for older women. Hard pass.

I honestly wanted to like this parfume, but gave me a headache. It reminded me of a strong generic potpourri spray.

I really didn't know what to expect from this fragrance, but I queued it along with Narcisso Rodriguez and they are somewhat similar. I 'm giving 4 stars because although I'm enjoying the scentbird sample, I would probably not purchase this just because it isn't a "me" kind of smell. It reminds me of my grandmother when I was a child... she used to wear a perfume called Anais Anais, which I haven't smelled in years (she's been resting in peace for about 20 years now)... used Yardley lavender soap and Maja (Spanish) face powder, her room always smelled floral and soapy clean. My grandmother would have loved this fragrance.

It was ok. Smelled nice enough that I still wore but wouldn?t buy. It reminded me of something that an older woman would wear (I?m in my late 20s and I know my mother in law would love this scent). For me, it was a bit too musky.

Overall I would have to say I like this scent. It comes on strong at first and little musky, but later becomes more soft and powdery. It's fine to use during the day or evening, but don't think it's suitable for a romantic occasions.

I really like this perfume. It does go on strong, but I didn't mind this much because it was still a very light feeling perfume with the lilies being the most prominent thing I can smell. It does smell more "mature" than maybe some other perfumes, but by no means would o consider it an old lady fragrance. Sophisticated is more like it. I enjoy this for during the day time, or a special occasion perfume.

I love this, but I love it on cool fall days and nights. In warm weather this would be way too strong/sweet/cloying. For this season though, I find it to be just stunning. My new signature for fall.

This is a very lovely fragrance! I agree that it is strong on the first spray but it does dissipate so not to be too much. It's nice but it still smells generic floral perfume to me and nothing I find too unique. The jasmine is pretty and hangs well on me. I will use up the small bottle I received but I will not be buying a larger one.

I must admit I was pretty put off by this one at first. It goes on REALLY strong and cloying. However, given time to settle in this is quite pleasant and lasts a long time. The jasmine and gardenia are the main notes I get. Just use a light touch with this one, otherwise you'll make yourself and anyone in an enclosed space with you nauseous.

This perfume is real strong at first it does get lighter as time goes by. The smell didn't last long on me and I think it reminded me of a grandmother's perfume. I didn't like this perfume that much. It was my first order I really was hoping to get something that I liked because my skin doesn't hold smells for some reason so I was hoping to find a good one.

I really wanted to like this. I generally like Amouage and I love Madame Butterfly which was supposedly the inspiration for this film. White florals and I can have very finicky relationships. Some are great, others are totally horrid and cloying on me. This one was not horrid, but did get cloying when it's big floral heart drops. I was hoping it would back off in time, but it became headachesville. Such a bummer. I dried it on a cooler summer night, so it's possible it was too warm, but I doubt it. Maybe I'll try again in the cold weather, I know a lot of people seem to like this one. Alas, so far it's not for me.

Very rich white floral, but a bit too floral for me. It smells a bit "overripe," almost sour in its richness. If you appreciate a heavy, tropical floral, you will love this. It was just a bit too much for me.

This scent starts as a beautiful and powerful white floral on my skin. The peppery notes are almost nonexistent. After about an hour it morphs into a bright green aquatic fragrance. Unfortunately I haven't been able to use the scent fully as the nozzle on the sprayer is malfunctioning and gets stuck in the pressed position. Of course this isn't a fault of the scent but rather the manufacturer of the bottle. All in all, it is a lovely spring scent reminiscent of walking through an English garden as the gardenias begin bursting forth.

Very week longevity for perfume priced at this level. I couldn't smell a hint of it after half an hour or so, I expected more.. The smell doesn't seem unique whatsoever. It's plain white flowers, and since it didn't last long, I couldn't see how it opens after the initial spray.

This one smells AMAZING!!! I can defanitly smell the heart notes of Tuberose, Gardenia and Lilly-of-the-valley. I would absolutely buy a bottle of this, hands down. This is definitely a floral fragrance, which I love, so if you are not a floral person I wouldn't get this. If you are, this one is a must.

Amouge's Honor Woman reminded me of something I had in my perfume collection. I couldn't place it immediately because I hadn't used it in a LONG time but when my memory came back I knew it reminded me of Fracas. This fragrance is very floral and feminine in a classic way not in the Flowerbomb way. This is something to wear to teatime with your rich nana. The lady who wears Chanel No. 5 or the aforementioned Fracas would love this

Nice floral scent. A little strong at first but softens nicely. Must like gardenia scent because it really comes through here with a weaker scent of tuberose blended in. A little sweet and rich so I'd recommend this for the fall over spring or summer.

I'm not giving this a heart rating because I can't review this fairly. This scent has a noticeable aquatic note. All things aquatic/melon react badly on me. Honour Woman may be a very lovely fragrance but I will never know because I can't wear it for more than a few minutes. I 'm writing this review only because there is nothing in the other reviews that mentions the aquatic notes.

I received this perfume today. It is one of the most beautiful floral perfumes I have ever tried. It is elegant and sensuous. I just want to roll around in it! There are perfumes you wear because others like them. Although the scent is beautiful and I am sure I will receive compliments on it, I will wear this perfume because of how it makes me feel. This is one of my top 5 fragrances ever.

This is very floral as described, just smells a little old for me. I've been wearing it daily and it's not quite "me" but it is nice and has good lasting power. I haven't gotten compliments on it, but also haven't been told it's overbearing.
