    I think Loewe Solo is kind of similar, at least in its "dryness" and understated class. Birley is more citrusy, though. Floris Elite and 89 are also in the same vein, perhaps more so than the Loewe, really.

    Others have said I'm nuts ... but I find CdG Dry Clean strikingly similar to Mark Birley.

    That is ... to my wacky nose

    Steely I have to disagree with that....virgilio is sharp, dry, medicinal/herbal. The basil note is very strong. Virgilio is what I imagine Elizabethans put in their pomanders to ward of noxious fumes and pestilence. I can't wear it often but it is a favorite when the mood strikes me.

    Sharp, dry, herbal - exactly. That's what I find in Virgilio too, AND in Mark Birley for Men!

    I think that there`s no scent like Mark Birley.
    But anyway I could suggest you to try some different scents in the mood of Mark Birley.
    Like Vetiver Extraordinaire Fr. Malle, Baladin Parfums de Nicolai, and maybe Sand flowers and something-Essaouera by Montale. I found them quite in same vein...

    I wonder if one could buy carrot seed essential oil.I haven't researched this.If indeed one could I bet it would come close to Mark Birley.
    I really like Mark Birley.Just as some think of AdG as eau de watermelon I think of Mark Birley as carrot juice...turned way up.I like smelling like a carrot.Rather smell like a carrot than a watermelon any day.More masculine(lol).Roland.

    a lot of carrot-like juice made from iris rhizomes

    Yes, I`ve also found that frags very similar.
    They have something different like pepper and vetiver in VetExtra (which are not in MBirley) - but by character they are quite... eh, office-like, polite and unoffensive... very translucent... airy, green and dry...
    and also VetExtra is sour a bit - for citrus reason, I believe..
