Honour 43 Woman Exceptional Extrait
Like poetry in motion – formulated slowly and with intent, this precious elixir is an awakening for the senses.
Honour 43 Woman elevates Amouage‘s heady white floral perfume inspired by Madame Butterfly to new heights. Presented in a 43% perfume oil concentration, a quartet of white flowers – Jasmine, Tuberose, Gardenia, Lily of the Valley – come together in a showstopping crescendo, revealing a more harmonized and smoother rendition of this iconic scent.
What makes Honour 43 Woman an “Exceptional Extrait”?
A fragrance is usually a mix of a concentrate (containing fragrant oils) and an alcoholic base. Some fragrances can also contain a bit of water and additives like liquid UV filters, stabilizers, or colourants. Therefore, fragrances with a higher fragrance concentration contain more perfume oils and less alcohol, and vice-versa.
Usually, a higher perfume oil concentration means an increased performance of the fragrance (particularly longer-lasting scent) – but the impact of oil concentration is much more complex and varies depending on each formula.
