As the name suggests this perfume is one that surpasses expectation. Historically a woman could earn the title Virago if she rose above what was expected of her gender. It was seen as a title of respect and admiration. The opening of this fragrance might be considered typically feminine, pink pepper, mandarin - however, as with Queen Boadicea, the fragrance has hidden depths. Warm and mysterious jasmine sambac mingles with playful honeysuckle before mature tuberose and lily appear. The base has a warm and defiant sweetness full of masculine strength and control.
