Reviews of Lyra (original)

There is one review of Lyra (original).
Genre: Oriental

An origin myth:

“Once upon a time (about 1993), a prodigiously talented fragrance composer, named Maurice, filled the brief for a perfume from an obscure house called Alain Delon. The perfume was a spicy-sweet, nearly-gourmand oriental with seductively musky base notes, a contrasting white floral accord, and a yummy citrus custard on top. The perfume was beautiful, but despite being among Maurice’s finest works, it was a commercial failure and was eventually discontinued. The perfume's name? Lyra.

Flash forward to the year 2000: Maurice was approached by an artistic director and perfume impresario named Fred. Fred was generous, and allowed Maurice to compose what he pleased. Perhaps saddened by Lyra’s tragic demise, Maurice resurrected her basic structure, but removed the floral accord to leave only the tasty citrus custard, the spicy oriental core, and the huge musky base notes. Maurice and Fred called the new composition Musc Ravageur, and the rest is history…”

Truth or legend? Sample Lyra and judge for yourself.
