This opens with a slight wisp of traditional Old Spice (but that only shows in the opening and doesn't stay into the dry down), and I also get a light pine along with some woody tones. There are only two phases, the opening I just described, which lasts a few hours, then the dry down which dramatically changes into a bitter balsamic tone that has a hint of earthiness to it. I also get a hint of dampness to the tone. This is a decided Autumn/Fall scent that reminds of a damp forest with decaying leaves with a dose of bitter balsam.

What's surprising is that this is not what I consider a "mass pleaser". It's a bit risky and artsy for a general supermarket release during its time period of the late 60's-70's. Perhaps this was done to give the average shopper a somewhat artsy fougere? I enjoy it around October when it first starts getting a bit crisp in the air in the morning.

This is my first post and I am a total fragrance novice, but I'm a sommelier and 25 year wine trade veteran so I know a little about aromatics from top to bottom. Long story short I purchased a vintage bottle of Burley After Shave lotion on ebay and just tried it on today. Assuming the contents of the bottle are original and not a scam refill I can say I truly like the experience. The top notes evoke a campfire the next morning when the dew has settled on the burnt embers...it's woodsy and sappy but has hints of fresh pine needles. After an hour the sillage softens and reveals heart notes of teakwood oil and a soapy tone that I want to hate but actually love...it brings back childhood memories of a "soap on a rope" my father used to leave in the shower back in the late 1960's. I'm getting some delicate floral and citrus notes that are struggling to reveal themselves under the soapy aromatic but find that to be a good balance in the end. This is definitely a masculine fragrance that is old world and will appeal to outdoor men rather than clubbers.
