Mark Birley for Men
Vetiver, Sandalwood, Cedar, Leather, Incense.
Pierre Bourdon and Frederic Malle collaborated on this 1996 creation and the result was a well made woody incense. I realize just how big the world of scent is since this has been around for quite awhile and I am just now trying it. It also can be said that I'm a bit slow to snag under the radar goodies like Mark Birley for Men.
In extended drydown, a light musk comes to fruition alongside the still going wood notes. Sillage is average and longevity is about 4 hours on my skin. The hang time may not be spectacular, but that's why they make atomizers. They come in handy for great smelling fragrances that don't last that long.
