Reviews of mb03

A similar scent to Avignon, it is primarily a Frankincense fragrance. I LOVE frankincense, but this is very linear. I get no smoke or change in smell from first spritz through dry-down. I would buy a bottle if I could find one for under $100, BUT it isn't unique enough to pay retail.

Smokey wood, resinous wood opening. Very dry and uber resinous. Itís easy to see that this was intended to be a serious wood fragrance. The opening is pure wood and smoke. There are supposed to be red pepper and chamomile in the opening, but I donít smell them because my olfactory apparatus is overwhelmed by the wood and smoke. This is an attractive accord Ė a fine quality smoke note grounded in fine quality wood notes; attractive but not very much new about it. This opening accord doesnít last as long as needed, quickly losing projection while trying to maintain / recover the ebbing resinousness by following up with styrex, frankincense, and patchouli; an accord inherently less interesting than the first-level smoky accord. Whether smoke, incense, or patchouli, I donít get much projection or longevity.
I do like the subtly of Biehl Parfumkunstwerke mb03. This is an incense fragrance that I wouldnít call "churchy" simply because it doesnít project enough off my skin to qualify as such. Because it is subtle, it is highly wearable, but I donít find it quite interesting enough for me to want to wear it.

Unisex Incense, dry

If I am going to spend money and wear a scent, it has got to touch me somewhere inside and inspire me just a little bit. Make me happier a little bit.

Firstly, this perfume line needs a makeover- the name and the title of these perfumes are quite off putting. Sorry, I am human and I respond to the usual marketing whether that is a good thing or not- it is the truth .

Secondly, this scent is nothing remarkable. There are at least half a dozen other scents like mb03 I could chose from .There is nothing worse than being unremarkable in a market such as this.

Anyway, mb03 is an incense fragrance - heavier in the top notes and feels perhaps more masculine in the top notes than the dry down. It is dry and steely ( as in the metal ) but wearable . It is quite a transparent scent after the top notes , quite sheer in some respects. Lasting power was about 2 and half hours . After the initial hit, it wears quite softly.

Pros: Wearable Incense
Cons: Not memorable"

Skin scent, if I could detect it I suppose it was slightly spicey.

First of all, I like MB3, I like Mark Buxton's creations and I totally loved a bunch of them such as CDG 2 Man or CDG Original but we really needed another one like Avignon, Around Midnight, Cardinal? This is a good, dark church-y incense but, unfortunately, it's really too similar to the ones I mentioned which are cheaper and much more readily available (Avignon anyone?).

I recently tried a few samples of this fragrance based on Base Notes reviews and a few other sources. Because of what I am currently looking for in a scent, Biehls MB03 seemed like a good bet, albeit a very pricey one! After doing some research and listening to a few converts, Biehl MB03 seemed like an incense fragrance I might want to wear and own.

I couldn't wait to try this scent when the samples arrived. This is a nice enough fragrance and I like it a lot. Initially I felt rather disappointed after wearing MB03 a few times and overall, this scent left me with a big "HUH...I do not understand all the fuss!"

While I like this fragrance a lot, I did not find it to be terribly outstanding or unique. With all the P.R. and press about Biehl's "fragrance labs," etc, I guess I was expecting something truly original, outstanding and highly unique. Instead after wearing MB03 a few times, I found myself thinking, "Okay...this is nice enough but somehow, I just don't get it."

For me, the dry down of this fragrance turned a bit too powdery. I also kept detecting a prevalent note that just didn't sit right with me...a note that almost smelled a bit rancid or odd. Again, the dry down didn't seem to work well with my chemistry.

For the price, I did not think the longevity was good at all. Also, not enough sillage for my taste. I think if I have to drop $265 on 3.3 ml of an EDT, I'll stick with my beloved Frederic Malle Musc Ravageur. This is a beautiful scent but it just didn't quite cut it for me.
