With Lyric Woman, Amouage is redefining the use of rose in perfume by rendering the traditional note in a completely unique manner. Spicy and resinous, Lyric Woman is an oriental rose, rich, complex and intricate. The piquant character of the composition is apparent immediately: the top notes blend bracing bergamot with tangy ginger and contrast this cool accord with warm, velvety spiciness of cardamom and cinnamon. The regal, crimson rose, surrounded by a creamy, opulent posse of ylang ylang, jasmine and orris, retains that spicy character in the heart of the fragrance, due to the presence of fiery geranium. The base of the scent, which includes the luxurious signature note of Amouage, frankincense, finishes the beautiful melody on a deep, sensual note. The drydown of woods, resins, vanilla and patchouli, paired with rose, is decadently rich, the epitome of Oriental luxury.
In its structure, Lyric is a floral fragrance, but one that introduces a dark intensity and modernity not normally associated with this genre - a perfect illustration of femininity, strength and passion.
