I guess my main response to my first (and last) test of Black Mark, "Is this all there is?" It has nice notes, including cedar and an accent of leather, and I wear only masculine scents, as opposed to unisex or feminine ones, but it still failed to impress me...maybe it's just my chemistry. At the start, like MFfan310, I found the top notes harsh, like dry cereal and wood chips that had been left in the oven until right at the burning point. On drydown, that softened about halfway, plus there was some creaminess and very slight sweetness (almost tonka-like), but what also emerged was a very slight marijuana note. I found the whole construction a bit thin, like some artisinal scents, like it could've used another note to prop it up and fill it out. It had average longevity, but stayed fairly light, even though I put on four sprays.
Black Mark reminded me a little of either Curzon by GF Trumper (or was it Eucris?) or Grafton by Truefitt & Hill--I can't remember which, since I haven't tried those for a few years--another that was on the leathery, harsh and spicy side. I think I would prefer that one to this one, which I'm passing on. I also think this is one to test first and not buy blind, though with all the other positive reviews, it might be great on you.
