It's Not Tulips

Riddles are little poems or phrases that pose a question that needs answering. Riddles frequently rhyme, but this is not a requirement.

You can find me on a face;
Frequently I'm in a vase.
I'm precise by definition,
Yet to one man I am different.


Hint

It's not tulips/two lips, even though that is a very good guess. It is a more abstract noun... And not every face is on a living thing.

I was thinking of an iris, because it's part of the eye and it's a flower. It can be different in color, however, the "to one man" threw me off track.

I should have called it "It's not Tulips or Irises." Lol

Very good. I was all over the ball park, but never got to home plate.

Same with me - I had no clue. Clever riddle - thanks for posting. Still missing Babe - I hope she's well and maybe just on vacation!

Loved it, I did not come up with the answer but when I saw it. I had a facepalm "ah ha" moment.
Great job for a first teaser! Nice to see some new material on here too, thanks Editors!

This is a very good riddle. Sometimes the clues in a riddle are questionable, or even misleading, but all of the clues here are good solid hints, and yet I didn't get it. I got the name "the riddler" because I was always bringing riddles to a group I visit. I'm sure they're going to like this one. Hope you don't mind, I'll make a small change when I do, so the last sentence will read,"By definition something precise is meant, Yet to one man I am different." It's hard to find good riddles, this one is great. Do more. I liked your title too.
