    While Lyric Man is everything I don't like about rose-centered perfumes, Lyric Woman is most definitely amongst my favorites in this genre. As a matter of fact, it also represents one of the reasons why I can't get as excited about the latest Amouage as I used to be when the house delivered mind-blowing compositions such as this one, Epic Woman, Gold, Ubar and several others in their back catalog.

    A heavily spiced (cardamom and cinnamon) rose built around a massive oriental structure. Beautiful floral patterns together with incense and a moderately sweet tonka / sandalwood combo provide even more thickness to an already impotent composition while the whole fragrance is pervaded by an overall sense of decadence and a remarkable gothic vibe. Enveloping, intoxicating and absolutely genderless.

    Tremendous.

    Not only roses .
    Lyric woman is a beautiful sandalwood (tons of sandalwood), rose and spicy fragrance.
    Reminds me a bit to Samsara vintage by Guerlain but Lyric is still better!
    The drydown is very beautiful; soft, creamy, slightly sweet. Incense and tonkabean play a marvellous duet on my skin.


    Colour of the bottle is just right for this scent.
    Lyric woman and man are the best pair of line Amouage!

    This is such a gorgeous fragrance.
    Very EXOTIC... smooth, rich, inviting and classy... but, that price tag kinda ruins it.

    I bought a 5ml vial for $39NZD (incl shipping to get it down this way) and I only got 3 wears out of it. I was so disappointed when I ran out and I can't justify parting with $460.00NZD.... ouch.

    Genre: Floral Oriental

    Amouage’s Lyric scents are one of those rare male-female pairs that actually amount to gender-adjusted versions of the same basic fragrance idea: in this case, a spicy, fruity rose on a base of woods and incense. As is often the case among such pairs, it is the female member that is the more daring and original. What separates Lyric Woman from Lyric Man are an enhanced vinous, jammy accent to the rose and a decadent, vaguely animalic, or even “meaty” accord buried underneath the incense and spices. Together these two olfactory elements lend Lyric Woman a degree of extra “kick” that’s missing in its mate. In broad terms, I’d characterize Lyric Woman as a spicy floral-oriental scent, one whose lineage would include Guerlain’s Nahéma and Caron’s Parfum Sacré. Lyric is not as fruity as Nahéma, but sweeter than Parfum Sacré, and its incense is softer, smoother, and more fully integrated.

    For all of its depth, I am surprised to find Lyric Woman relatively short-lived on my skin. Generous application might help, but as this is a far-reaching scent with ample sillage, and I’m not sure just how much I’d want to wear. Longevity aside, Lyric Woman is a compelling and seductive scent, superior, perhaps even as a masculine, to Lyric Man. Without doubt worth a try for lovers of rose scents and spicy orientals.

    Rose is a flower in the same way that sandalwood is a wood, and vanilla is the spice.  Each is so definitive of its category, that it supersedes the classification. Due to this star quality rose tends to be difficult to hide.  The only reason this predicament isn't a problem is that as a rule, nobody wants to hide the rose. 

    But if you are a perfumer, there is another nagging problem with the rose: the beauty dilemma. The scent of rose is beautiful. So what?  What do you do with the rose?  After the the soliflor, the rose chypre, the bouquet, the amber-rose, the rose-oud, the thorny rose--what do you do?  Lyric Woman finds a new role for rose. It's not just the rose with a different costume and a new score. Rose isn't the star. In Lyric, rose is the narrator. 

    Lyric has an awful lot packed into it, yet it doesn't come off as overburdened. The Rose serves to temper the experience from the fireworks of bergamot in the topnotes through the spicy heart, to the resinous-rose finale. The rose mediates the huge cast of other notes, and the perfume feels lighter than you would expect.  No less potent, simply not so demanding.  The basenotes are a pleasant surprise. The rose-frankincense pairing apparent from the very start of the perfume remains to the end, but there's a savory, nutty quality as well that suggests sandalwood or saffron. Exciting ride, soft landing.

    From a perfume producer from a land of a multi-millennial tradition of rose-incense pairings come this little twist. We've seen all the ingredients before, but it's a new recipe.
