Today I tested Amouage Lyric Man
Crispy citrus on top, quickly opening up into a spiced tea smell. Underneath the tea, rose crept in so quietly I almost didn't see it coming, but kept coming until it took over the heart of the scent. This is bright and fresh, but with a tiny touch of powder. I'm thinking some of the tea illusion may be caused by jasmine (I've been going nuts for jasmine tea lately, so I may be subconsciously linking the two smells together).
It's nice, and unisex, if on the feminine end of the spectrum. There's a moment in the progression of Tom Ford's Champaca Absolute that I've always liked, that's a spicy tea mixed with the citrusy champaca (unfortunately, this few minutes isn't really worth the hours of bubblegum champaca, for me). Lyric Man smells like that moment, but with rose.
I don't think I'm ready for a full bottle of this, though. It is awfully expensive, and this is nice, but it's not really speaking to me...
