Stop the love train! I want to get off.
Lyric comes out of the bottle smelling wonderful and rosy - a bit like Amouage Homage Attar, in fact. Sadly, this is a busy celebrity rose that only hangs out for a few minutes before moving on to its next engagement. After that, I don't perceive much of a floral component at all. I get saffron and loads and loads of choking powder.
In fact, this fragrance has more in common with a lot of fresh aquatics than with anything floral - I'd compare it to Silver Mountain Water and Millesime Imperial, but more powdery. For me, it has that same grating, unpleasant, metallic character as those Creeds. It's richer and fuzzier, but the underlying structure seems to be similar. It's actually rather nauseating.
Overall, I get the impression of a nursery cleaning product specifically designed to cover up the smell of baby poop.
2012 update: tried again, same impression
