Relations between bulk mass parameters for fermions propagating in higher dimensions are studied in analogy with the empirical mass relation for charged leptons. Masses of three generation of four-dimensional charged leptons are achieved from the bulk mass parameters of the same-order values. We find that the observed pattern of charged-lepton mass spectrum is accommodated approximately in a set of simple relations for bulk and physical masses.
