Right so today’s #sotd is the superb #amouage #lyric #man my god what a fragrance this is. When I first tried this I wasn’t sure what to make of it? But it was with the help of a brilliant and very friendly sales assist in Selfridges, who was genuinely passionate and not just pushing a new release for the sake of it. He described the trail from this fragrance as ‘smoke’ and the way he described the feeling he got from lyric, (I’m paraphrasing) was vivid, cooling, camp and generally fantastic! He gave me a huge amount of samples (like 5 carded Lyrics) and although I was already familiar with it at this point, This allowed me the opportunity of multiple wears and realised this was a fragrance I couldn’t do without. Saying that it took me another several years before eventually buying a bottle, but I’m so glad I have it now.
The opening is a sharp citrus, line but oddly synthetic then you get a huge dose of musky, bright metallic powder, that persists deep into the drydown. This fragrance has virtually no progression whatsoever and truly is the perfect “blend” top into heart into base. Lyric is one epic mass, which thankfully is about as light and hauntingly fresh as it gets, like a delicately rose scented talcum. The rose note in this is simply like no other, capturing aspects of Rose which seem familiar but are also incredibly abstruse. I always seem to mention a rosehip note that I get from lyric, and the bright musk and sharpness of lime make for such perfect bedfellows. A standout fragrance that lasts incredibly on me, projects and makes me feel very clean. It’s perfect. If you’ve never tried it I urge you to, the women’s Lyric is great too and a perfect partner for this. I’d say Lyric Man is unisex to the point of androgyny and would be perfectly suited for women for sure. 👍🏻 🌹 💨 🍚 🍈 #fragrance #fraghead #fragrancelovers #fragrantica #fragrancereview #fragrancecollection #perfume #perfumecollection #perfumelover #parfumerie #scent #scentoftheday #scents #scentoftheday #olfactory #niche #designer #aftershave #mensgrooming #rose #musk
