You know - you got me with the love and feeling
Amouage - a perfume brand that polarizes.
If you meet the brand for the first time, you first meet
probably on the scents "Reflection M." and "Interlude M.".
Two polarizing and well-known fragrances. If you look at - or better said -
you can smell the other scents from the house of Amouage quickly,
that the brand also has much more to offer.
Lyric Man - never before has a name been more fitting.

Flacon: For many a simple bottle. A bottle like any other bottle in the Amouage-Man line. But here it is not the tangible that makes the bottle "beautiful". But much more what we can see and not directly feel. A gradient. From black to red - from red to black.
Black - a colour that in poetry often stands for the mysterious, the mystical or simply for silence. Red - a colour that in poetry is always associated with love, desire, vitality or hatred. It is the romance inherent in these colours that make the bottle special.

Fragrance: For many a simple fragrance. Flowery. Spicy.
The scent is nothing new. It's more the familiar. A dark scent of roses that meets a multitude of well-known woody/spicy notes. If the rose were a personification, she would not try to love you. She'd do anything to make you love her. And the spicy base that joins the rose after some time would try to bind you to it. And I admit: I needed a few attempts until I learned to love the fragrance. To be exact, three attempts. I used to think flowery scents weren't for me. Like many others I was fixated on perfume after some time on "oudige" and "oriental" fragrances. If you let yourself in on the fragrance, you will notice that the fragrance has much more to offer than just smelling of rose. In my case: another page on me and my new favorite and signature scent.

Lyric Man doesn't want to polarize. It is rather the little things that make this fragrance special.

Now I've done it ://
This scent is not for everyone and especially not for me! I don't like rose scents for men.... What happened to me? I'm getting more and more fond of him. Truly the Dufpyramid is not to be recognized.... Roses, roses and more roses.

Like someone discovered a new vaccine, that's how I feel. Our meeting was spontaneous by an exchange with a nice perfume. My expectations were probably wrong; the first spray and my nose backed out.
What the fuck did you get? But.... no a big BUT: it passed some time, give it a chance and 360° my opinion had changed.
Now I'm wearing the Lyric more and more often, matching the bottle with a dark red sweater.
I don't know why, but it fits.
The endurance is remarkable but they are all the Amouages. One working day until late in the evening he makes himself noticeable, afterwards only very closely.

The bottle in this colour... just beautiful.

Roses are red
Violets are blue
I love this side, I know that

A dozen roses for the man (3/12)
As a newcomer here, I'm going to try my hand at a series of comments. This is the third part.

The motivation, the idea and the criteria
I'm a real fan of the scent of roses (in my youth my mother had Paris from YSL. I found "the hammer") But the rose isn't exactly the one you first come across as part of a men's fragrance. Nevertheless, I think the rose is contained in more and more men's fragrances.
According to the following criteria I have selected 12 of these fragrances and will comment and compare them bit by bit:
- Men fragrance (exception Desert Rose from Urban Scent as unisex fragrance, I simply had to add)
- Rose as heart note (exception: Much ado about the Duke of Penhaligon, I was just in London at the idea)
- Published from the year 2000
- Rating of at least 6.0 with at least 40 ratings
- No Oud (not so mine)
Fragrance No. 3 is: Lyric Man by Amouage
(previously: (1) Lumière Noire pour Homme by Maison Francis Kurkdjian, (2) 24 Old Bond Street Triple Extract by Atkinsons)

The house, the perfumer and the shopping
First of all: I think the history of the perfume house is fantastic.
Amouage is the Chanel of the Orient - and something like a state perfume of Oman. A bottle full of national pride (so in an article in the world from 2008). Amouage was founded in 1983 by His Majesty the Sultan Qaboos bin Said al Said in Maskat. The foundation (as I believe the Royal Opera House Muscat, founded in 2011) stands for the modernization, globalization and opening of Oman to the West. The Sultan commissioned the perfumer Guy Robert, who had already worked for houses such as Hermès, Dior and Gucci, to create a new fragrance. For a while, Guy Robert's Amouage Gold fragrance was the world's most expensive perfume. The name Amouage is a word creation from the French "Amour" and the Arabic word "amwaj", which means "wave". Amouage thus means in a broader sense "the waves of emotions" and bears the subtitle "The Gift of Kings" because the Sultan presents it to his state guests as a gift. Parfumeur Daniel Visentin began his training in 1976. In addition to Lyric Man, he also co-developed Myths Man for Amouage and is one of the creative heads of the M.INT label founded in 2012. I broke new ground with the purchase of Lyric Man and bought it here in the Souk as bottling. So my special thanks go to Tesuo. Has worked great and super fast - Thank you!

The fragrance, the ingredients and the experience
For Lyric Man, the history and vision of Amouage is divided into two halves according to gender. Not only do the two fragrances have numerous scents in common, they also represent the seamless link between traditional French perfumery and Eastern aesthetics. In addition, it becomes clear that the "male rose" has been worn by men from the Middle East for much longer (perhaps since the time when roses became a precious commodity on the trade routes centuries ago). Lyric Man starts fresh, citric, penetrating. The bergamot is tangy, fresh and bitter (not as usual sometimes slightly sweet-fruity) and is reinforced by the lime. Already very fast the for me overwhelming wonderful pure rose unfolds. The rose is refined by three components: "Oriental", by the spices nutmeg and saffron, "green" by the galbanum (which already played a corresponding role at 24 Old Bond Street) and "fresh-fruity" by the orange blossoms and the ginger. I could not claim that I can "smell" every single component, but the three described (basic) components are unmistakable. The saffron comes out the strongest for me. The spice is extracted from the crocus species of the same name, namely from the pistil threads of the flowers. Saffron exudes an intense, sweet-spicy aroma with slightly bitter notes. It is one of the most precious spices in the world. As the fragrance progresses, the angelica note unfolds. Angelica is obtained from the dried roots of angelica (also angelica). According to a legend, the name Angelica goes back to the archangel Gabriel, who, when the plague raged in Europe, appeared in the dreams of many people and recommended Angelica to them for healing. Allegedly, Angelica was chewed by the people so that they wouldn't get infected. In some cultures the oil is also called "Holy Spirit Oil" or "Oil of Angels". In fact, it was one of the few herbs that we exported to the Orient in the Middle Ages (usually the other way round). Angelica is characterised by a musk-like, herbaceous peppery and aromatic-balsamic smell. In my opinion, it also meant something of today (very positive). Sandalwood and vanilla then form the basis. Here however with the resinous incense (see also with 24 Old Bond Street) and the jaw a masculine chord is supplemented. That's round, but still angular.

The conclusion, the comparison and the practical application
After the loud fresh "white" aspects, the carrier remains with a calm warm, "dark red" part of the rose. This way there are some special effects whose volume decreases so that the focus never deviates from this "rose king". The fragrance needs some self-confidence because the rose is intense, but the fragrance is never intrusive. Lyric Man is spicier than Lumière Noire pour Homme, but has significantly more rose than 24 Old Bond Street. This looks very "pure" and has a good Sillage and durability. My favorite "so far".

(1) Lumière Noire pour Homme - The noble softie
(2) 24 Old Bond Street Triple Extract - The elegant Brite
(3) Lyric Man - The "pure" Rose

Signature scent
If I could be remembered by one and only one fragrance, then I'd prefer to be remembered by this fragrance. Everything done is right here, the rose is out there but it is not feminine. Opening might not be everyone's cup of tea but once it starts to dry down, it shines. I love a good masculine rose fragrance and this is an absolute masterpiece for me. Love it.

Rejected
A beautiful fragrance, that I can not wear. Please take into consideration, that everything I write is interpreted on women skin. I would like to smell LYRIC MAN on male skin, it must be definitely different.

So exuberant spices at the beginning! I enumerate my tips: anice, mint, juniper... Mistaken of course. It is wonderful, but something is wrong. LYRIC MAN does not like me, does not want me to sniff him, he is fading, as he wanted to hiding himself under my skin. He is not mine, he is mourning, a sorrowful, introvert fragrance. Still classic, high quality and excellent, but I am clearly rejected, LYRIC MAN is clearly for men, and only for men.

Pure Natural Rose...
Superb natural smelling rose based scent. Rose is the operative word, as it dominates the fragrance from start to finish and smells just like you might find a freshly cut one in your local florist shop. Quite frankly, I think this may be the most natural rose scent I have smelled to date (outside of having the rose itself)...

Bottom line is Lyric Man is a great scent. The only "problem" I have with it is I think I would have trouble wearing it due to its feminine nature (IMO). I would *love* to smell this on a lady, however, as it smells fantastic. Another 4 out of 5 star winner from the house of Amouage.

Shall we dance?
A truly magnifi-scent Rose from Amouage!! I bought this at Dubai Duty Free some time ago and it was really love at first sniff ... so much so that I went into the bathroom just after take-off to wash off my other tests as best I could and gave myself a thorough dousing of Lyric! Two of the cabin attendants (one male and the other female) complimented it vociferously and were never far away, offering champagne and warmed nuts. It lasted beautifully for the duration of the 8 hour flight I was on ...

The rose here is deeply sophisticated ... lifted gracefully by the bergamot at the top and then supported faithfully by the incense and vanilla down below. The ingredients here are of the very best quality. A hint of Neroli, a dash of Saffron ... Sandalwood lasting throughout the impressive lifespan of this fragrance. It's so good it's almost edible!!

Fragrance often transports me to places in my immagination, and this one takes me to a lavish ballroom ... all crystal chandeliers and gold fittings, with damask on the walls so richly red that it's almost like fine red wine spilled on the whitest silk. Couples whirl gracefully on the polished parquet floor ... the men handsome in their tails, the ladies ravishing in their ballgowns, bright and twittery as a flock of exotic parrots. Sigh ...
