Smell like a horse?
Good evening, folks, how are you doing? I think I should be polite to the ladies here today, because I am about to say something that the ladies in particular might not like. Because the fragrance in question today is Byerley by Parfums de Marley. So, Byerley is the name of a legendary horse from the 17th to 18th century, who together with two other horses (Godolphin Barb and Darley Arabian) are considered the progenitors of today's English thoroughbred horses. And why should all this now annoy the ladies? Well... because I will admit right away that for me personally horses are a little boring and I never could do anything with them :D
Sure, in medieval movies or even fantasy films I find horses as mounts extremely cool, but as "sports animals" that thrill the masses, I personally find them rather boring. I like all animals, but I don't know much about horses (and no, I don't only like cats...!).

That's why I don't understand the infatuation of many women with these creatures... and no, it's certainly not because of the "somewhat overlong thing" of these creatures, as many guys immediately think and fantasize about it or wish to have such a long... power, in order to, well... then also pass as a "stallion" and be able to show off with it... :DD
But as I said, I don't know why so many women like horses so much...

Soo, before you all decapitate me now, either because I mentioned something dirty or because I called horses boring (which, by the way, also includes unicorns... bah... what do you want with unicorns (preferably under a multicolored rainbow, too, right?...)? DD), let me at least describe the scent here first :D

Over time the fragrance becomes more balsamic and softer, although it still has a citrusy and fresh scent. The woods now also smell with a combination of indefinable resins and I would also say that you can smell something like a pine forest out of all the woods from time to time, which I find nice.
Towards the base it smells a little more barbarshop-like, but still not necessarily very old-fashioned, even if the fragrance gives the impression that it's not for the younger ones. By the way, the fragrance is no longer particularly fresh, but rather warmer and also much more balsamic and gentle. In addition, the base now smells mainly of the woods, which however also leave a softer impression than a crisper cedar, i.e. the woods smell more like guaiac wood and pine. A little vetiver is also added, which gives the fragrance a green and earthy note. All in all, the scent is quite beautiful.

The silage and the durability:*
The sillage is good, so that you are wrapped in a (slightly smaller) cloud of scent for a while, which has been smelling good on you for quite a while. The shelf life of about six hours is quite okay.



By the way, the fragrance is listed here as unisex, but I think that the fragrance is not at all feminine and smells like a pure men's fragrance, even if many people think that you shouldn't really divide fragrances into male and female. Well, never mind.

In any case, it is worth a test if you do not already have this kind of scent. As already mentioned, this is not a fragrance for going out, but really a day scent that can be used all the time and also at work. And this also as an all-rounder regardless of the season.

And I'm through with that again with one scent. I hope the ladies will forgive me for talking disparagingly about horses (...and unicorns :D) (hey, riding must be cool... but I still find horses (AND unicorns!!! :D) a little boring as animals... camels are much cooler :DD), hey hey.
Well then, have a nice evening and see you soon :)

Dark spicy, woody vetiver, pleasantly laid to the reins in the course of balsam
I have distanced myself from vetiver scents in the past. In certain autumn moments I actually like to wear them, because they can form a beautiful mood equivalent to foggy, lonely, mystical natural landscapes, but in the other seasons they are often simply too exhausting for me.

"Now "Byerley" starts - especially in the starting phase - with those somewhat gloomy forest landscapes in autumn and piles up pictures of creaky, foggy wood and fragrant, somewhat resinous firs in front of the inner eye.

Very classic, almost conservative Vetiver use at any rate, a bit strict, not exactly the mild beginner's style. However, this rabid phase lasts only a good 10 minutes, due to guaiac wood and probably also the balms mentioned above, the Marly fragrance becomes somewhat milder, softer. "More "friendly" seems a bit exaggerated to me, however, the basic tone remains quite attached to the slightly serious, striking milieu.

Nevertheless - the balsamic embraces the creash-green vetiver more and more and rounds it off at least at the sharpest corners and edges. Qualitatively by the way a very authentic and natural looking vetiver, in contrast to "Encre Noir", for example, which seems too artificially affected  in its aroma to me meanwhile.

Yeah, this one's good for something. I probably only in this small autumnal window of time from early October to mid-November, but now well. Vetiver fans should definitely make a test.

Big Vetiver
Big juicy vetiver with a hint or slight incense coming through.........i'm guessing because of the cardamom and resin notes.

The quality is clear and present, not cheap smelling, at all.

Maybe green enough for summer and incense-y enough for cooler temps.

Good life and radiates well. Felt good wearing this one.

Strong spicy-bitter-green start, with noticeable woody supporting notes, that slowly leads to a beautiful masculine vetiver balmy drydown.
