Amouage lyric man is a very different take on rose and I don't see any rose fragrance which is comparable as generally we see lot of fragrance with rose/oud combination but here rose is blended so well with lime and different spices . I have the vintage formulation and have no idea how this has been reformulated .
The rose Starts in the background in opening with lime and bergamot being dominant and as it starts developing you see spices and ginger coming into play along with rose becoming dominant and the dry down is where I believe the best part of this perfume as it calms down with hint of incense , musk and sandalwood .
It last around 15+ hours on me with 6-8 hours of projection and creating scent cloud with in my hands distance . I feel some people may not like the opening of lime/bergamot with rose however I personally love this take . This is quite sophisticated perfume and it's quite refined though it is sample first and not to b blind bought ! I will personally cherish 30ml of juice left in my vintage bottle as long as I can and its quite versatile frag which can be used all round the year .8.5/10
