Of course I would add Gold man first....
but within your set, I'd say Epic, then Lyric, then, distant, Memoir, and finally Honour.
Memoir then Epic ... honour last.
Lyric, then Ciel for me.
I dislike Amouage frags that change a lot, they couldn't make a decent base to save their lives. This includes Gold, Memoir, Jube, Honor... all have boring drydowns with largely synthetic base chemicals. Lyric and Ciel are pretty much linear and while they still have a lot of synthetics in them I do enjoy them.
Gold is the worst of the bunch IMO, it starts out good but has an absolutely horrible powdery drydown.
1. Jubilation XXV Man
2. Epic Man
3. Ciel Man
Does anybody else have a problem with their bottle collars breaking off of the Amouage bottles?
I'm surprised Lyric is getting so much attention, since I think of it as kind of underrated. But yeah, Lyric is beautiful. I'd even take it over Jubilation.
I don't see one of my favorites - Epic Woman Extrait for a real man. Don't be fooled by gender labelling. Now that's some outstanding juice.
In most scents with Amouage, the Women's version is superior to the Men's. Why wouldn't you want to wear the better smelling one.

ps. try Epic pour femme too
From the list I own Memoir Man, XXV & Lyric Man, and would certainly recommend Memoir but not necessarily the other two. I much prefer Epic Woman to Epic Man - it's a more interesting composition - gotta try the Extrait at some point.

Amouage Epic Man
Amouage Lyric Man
Amouage Jubilation XXV
I tried and loved Memoir ages ago and resampled it yesterday. It was better than I remembered! I'm hoping to give both it and Jubilation XXV extended testing soon.
from your list:
1. Epic Man
2. Jubilation XXV
3. Lyric Man.
Lyric is a controversial choice for me. I don't think i could wear it tbh, too feminine, but i really do love that quality rose scent.

Amouage Lyric Man only by default.
Of those, Jube XXV is fantastic, but you already have it.
Memoir would be the second choice for me, a super-serious, smokey-green scent that draws respect!
Epic was a bit too dry IMO.
Lyric is a very nice rose, but I found it too linear.
Honour is also very nice, it doesn't get much love here though.
Why no Dia? It's a fantastic one.
You can't go wrong with any of those, really... (as long as you don't consider Gold, lol)
Kurt smells like Teen Spirit
Of these I'd only choose Epic personally although Jubilation XXV is a superior product. The attars Homage and Tribute are both better than most of these.
Is the online boutique or Bergdorf Goodman the only sources for Amouage?
Memoir > XXV > Epic
Epic then jubilation.
Memoir > Epic > Lyric
Honestly, you could probably get by with samples of all of them. Just pick up some official samples at Parfums Raffy. They are 2ml each (grab like 3 of them for each frag) and they last a LONG time.
Also, I highly recommend you check out
Opus II (lavender/cinnamon/incense + wormwood. It's kind of like a cross between Reflection and Memoir Man.)
Opus IV (an awesome autumnal incense)
Opus VI (a very dry herbal amber - like Ambre Sultan but better!)
Iris Pallida 50ml
Ungaro I 75ml
and more! - http://www.basenotes.net/threads/301...n-Man-and-more
with the amouage fragrances its really about how you feel
I like Epic but don't feel like wearing it often as it is heavy and quite strong
Jubilation is nice, but can come off smelling like similiar cheaper fragrances often, which isn't nice (Ahem John Varvatos)
Lyric is nice as well, does remind me of detergent sometimes, and others times it smells fabulous
Memoir and Honour I haven't tried
out of the three I have tried, I'd go for Epic
in the end its whichever you enjoy wearing most
as you can see everyone has a different answer

Jubilation, Lyric and Epic Man...
My current top ten:
1. Spice and Wood
2. Dior Homme Parfum
3. Tonka Imperiale
4. Pure Malt
5. Bois d'Argent
6. Noir de Noir
7. Apple Brandy
8. 5 o'clock au Gingembre
9. Epic Man
So here is the tally:
Amouage Epic Man (22)
Amouage Honour Man (3)
Amouage Memoir Man (13)
Amouage Lyric Man (15)
Amouage Jubilation XXV (15)
JubXXV, Lyric and Epic are in the lead!
Epic Man has monster projection and lasts for decades. But my top 3:
In that order.
Current top 5:
1. Puredistance M
2. Kilian Apple Brandy
3. Amouage Fate Man
4. Andrea Maack Coven
5. Naomi Goodsir Bois d'Ascese
I find it wery strange to see all the ignorance for Honour here, while Epic gets lot of love. IMO Honour is not so different from Epic. It`s like a much smoother, "rounder", versatile Epic "light", yet with great sillage and longevity. Much more pleasant and wearable than the sharp nuclear-monster Epic. Have you guys actual tried Honour?
Epic, jubilation, memoire
The only Amouage I have tried, enjoyed, and now own is Jubilation... So take that for what's it's worth lol
Epic - Spicy brother of Jubilation with more sillage.
Honour - Most versatile of the bunch while keeping the signature feeling of the house. Spicy, peppery fresh incense...
Memoir - Dark incense with woods and absinthe. I find it very subtle and hard to wear in public.
Lyric - The most linear scent of Amouage. It doesn't share the same vibe with others. Just a good rose scent. Nothing special for me...
Jubilation XXV - Magnificient opening with dried red fruits. I love every phase of this scent!!!
I have bottles of Jubilation, Reflection, Dia and Epic and a decant of Ciel. Also planning to buy Honour. Jubilation and Reflection are my favourites from the house.
Tried them all but Jubilation XXV is the only one I fell in love with.
We're all in the same game; just different levels. Dealing with the same hell; just different devils.
Lyric Man and Jubilation would definitely be two of my choices
La vita è breve, la morte vien.
Wanted!!! Rectoverso Tea Tobacco by Ulric de Varens. PM Me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Jubilation > Dia (cause I don't know the others that well) > Lyric.
I own Memoir and JXXV (and Reflection). I'll eventually buy a bottle of Epic. I like Honour and even considered buying it for a minute but didn't. Lyric is nice, but it's my least favorite of what you have listed. I noticed a few people mentioned Epic woman. I sampled it and prefer Epic man. But sample my dude, sample.
Lyric > Memoir > Epic Man > Jubilation
