From creative director Christopher Chong and perfumer Daniel Maurel for the Perfume House of Amouage comes the rose themed Lyric!
If a perfume meant for a woman to feel as if she were completely ensconced in the most luxurious, deepest red flowing silk, as soft as the pedals of a rose, then Lyric has indeed accomplished just that! This perfume is a beautiful, rich, deep, red rose, made creamy and warmed by the melding of the spicy notes, dry geranium and the sweet, woodiness of orris smoothed further by Tonka Bean, Sandalwood, Oakmoss, Vetiver, Vanilla and precious Frankincense. Every single note used in the creation of this fragrance are present like the instruments in an orchestra or the colors of the artist's palette used in the perfect painting, all playing their parts, as it married my skin in perfect harmony. This one neither speaks for me, nor of me but in fact became me. The rose always at the heart of this perfume is the star while the others notes fill in the background making her shine just as she should. The most beautiful and deepest of red roses to be sure.
On me this perfume took a total a half an hour to and hour to fully develop into this glorious fragrance.
The house of Amouage describes Lyric as "A poignant song without a beginning and end. Suspended in time with a mythical melody". Indeed, I agree. This perfume will forever sing its never ending melody to me!
The perfume comes in EDP strength housed in a rich red bottle.
Also available are the shower gel, body cream and body lotion.
