Well, I`ve got this scent quite cheap - one time there was a lot of JLA perfumes in Russia.
For me they are not so close. Mark Birley is far more fresh and classical. It`s more natural - in sense of ingredients and whole impression.
JLA Prive Homme is water-mineral-woody scent, with some leather in it. Spices are quite aloud. Very modern.
Marine Aromatique group.
Bergamot, grapefruit, leaves and watery notes - top;
cardamom, coriander, guaiak wood, vetiver, sandalwood, ginseng - heart;
leather, musk, amber, balsamic accent - base.
