    Totally different scents, neither is better than the other. I have a personal preference for Rose 31 though. Lyric man wears rather light on my skin and teeters on the feminine side and comes across like a woman's herbal shampoo.

    Lyric Man is a beautiful lush rose scent though a tad feminine. Rose 31 is more about cumin and vetiver and incense and is to my nose synthetic and dirty. Lyric Man all the way.

    Lyric for me, R31 is ok but nothing special IMO. I think Lyric has a clean soapy vibe but not shampoo. If you want shampoo, that's Homage attar, which I'm not a fan of.

    Of the two Rose 31 is my preference, however do try MFK Lumière Noire if you're looking for a rose based fragrance.

    I vote for Rose 31 between the two. Lyric Man a bit too rosey for me.

    It seems like your nose is telling you to go with Lyric Man. Go with that.

    They're very different. I prefer rose 31. It's so unique.

    Not a fan of either, but of the two I'd pick Lyric.

    31 shats all over anything Amouage could conjure up.

    Im wearing Lyric Man today for the first time. I was expecting a fabulous fragrance as the reviews are so positive...
    On me it smells like a cheap shampoo or rollon deodorant...Headache indulcing, powdery, sweet, cloying and very very cheap...

    Rose 31 by far is my choice

    I have tried to really like lyric and i've had my ups and downs where one day i loved it and then other days just realized this stuff is just to dam feminine for me. People talk about woods and spices in lyric, i'm sorry but i get none of that at all. It's very soapy and the dry down is much nicer than the opening but overall its a hard wear for me but i'm glad to have a small decant to use when in the mood. I was so close to buying a bottle a while back...glad I passed!

    Rose 31 is better overal imo, but i will say i had a few women smell lyric and reactions were extremely positive...maybe becuase they wanted to wear themselves lol

    Lyric man is a little soapy and more femme. It's a sweeter rose with its lime and bergamot top notes. Saffron and nutmeg add a little, and when I say little I mean little, spiciness to it. Overall very classy and refined, it's for a very confident man who doesn't mind ppl labeling his scent as femme, I'm just glad I bought a 50 ml bottle. For me, 50 will last me years especially with this. Rose 31 on the other hand, is a dirty masculine rose with a rugged edge to it. Straight up jeans and t-shirt fragrance if you smoke cigs, this wont kill it, it'll add another dimension to it. Lyric in my opinion holds an edge because its so smooth. You really can't go wrong with either..
