Too much for the office
I ordered this because it had such great reviews. It was just "okay" for me. I thought the ginger and the citrus stood out the most with amber as the finishing note. This would be good to wear on a night out, but its a little too strong for the office.

A bit overpowering
This is really spicy and a bit overwhelming. I recently went on a work trip and threw this scent in my bag. It was a lot. I probably wouldn’t go for this again.

Strong
This is so ridiculously strong you can’t wear it anywhere. I was super excited to get it but when I sprayed one spray it was so overpowering. Sucks, and I wanted to like it. Can’t imagine myself wearing this anywhere with the strength of it.

Amazing but nothing new
This smells like drinking an orange French soda with cream while walking in a shaded park. Upon first smell it's a bright fizzy orange but dries down to something softer with a bit more green. It's such a great scent, and I think it's perfectly unisex. It's mass-appealing and easy to wear, but to be honest I did expect something more unique from this brand. Nevertheless, absolutely worth a try if you like citrus perfumes.

Great unisex scent
As a guy, I enjoy very sweet and fruity scents with a hint of masculinity. West delivered just that for me. Upon first spray you are hit with sweet, citrusy notes. The longevity is decent lasting about six hours depending on how much you use. I received many compliments on this one. I'd say this would make a great summer scent.

citrus and woods
Initial blast of lovely orange-y citrus and light spice, but dries down to just a woodsy scent, which I find too masculine. I wish the sweeter citrus would last longer to balance out the masculine ending. Would probably love it on my husband, but it is too one dimensional at the end for me to enjoy. I love the scent, it just leans too far toward cologne compared to all of the other unisex scents I like.

Amazing
Fresh, feminine, and unique. I recommend to anyone that likes Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue Intense or Chanel Chance Eau Fraiche. Settles into skin wonderfully. Can’t stop smelling my wrist. Very lovely scent.

Strong,feminine, and overpowering
This perfume smells awesome, the only problem I have is that it is overwhelming when you first put it on. It has a very nice fruity smell. If you wear it in a department store everyone could smell you all over the store.

Pleasant
This scent is light and floral but not particularly distinctive. I wore it but was not enthralled by it.

Just ok
The overall scent was pleasant just not strong enough. I personally didn’t care for it. But would recommend it to some friends.

LOVE the scent, but doesn't last long
I absolutely LOVE 'West' by Ellis Brooklyn and have already ordered a full size bottle. It's fresh (citrus-y at first), yet sexy (sultry dry down) - and it's appropriate for the office AND for date night (doesn't project too far, so your officemates won't gag and your date will swoon)! While using my ScentBird atomizer, I did find myself reapplying fairly often as it seemed to dissipate rather quickly. West in a perfume oil would be perfection in my book! Bottom line: Ellis Brooklyn 'West' is captivating and unlike any other fragrance I've ever encountered. In fact, I enjoyed it so much that I went through my ScentBird bottle in less than a week. If you enjoy sexy citrus-y perfumes (esp. those with significant orange notes) and you want something that's subtle enough that only those in your personal space can enjoy it, you'll LOVE 'West.' However, those of you that don't like to reapply should probably skip this one.

Cloying Amber Overload
Everyone has different preferences, but this scent is simply unbearable to me. I'm normally a citrus perfume lover, but the amber / mandarin combo is sickeningly sweet and warm, like over ripe fruit going bad, and something about it just doesn't work to my nose at all. In fact, it's making me feel a little nauseated. I've tried to wash it off three times, but I can still smell it, so let that speak to its longevity! West has fewer tart citrus notes like grapefeuit or lemon, and far more sweet mandarin-y notes, which is why I'd describe it as more of a fruity smelling perfume than a traditionally citrusy one. I can barely pick up on the ginger, so if you like a bit of sharpness or zest in your perfumes, this isn't the scent for you. West will probably work for people who like warm, sweet, ambery scents, but it's lacking the bright, fresh notes I look for in a perfume. I gave it 2 stars instead of 1 because this perfume clearly appeals to some palates, just not mine. Also, no scent is inherently feminine or masculine, but West isn't what the vast majority of people would call a unisex scent - it falls firmly in the femine perfume catagory by the traditional definition.

Good fresh scent
I dont have a negative experience with this fragrance; however is not my favorite and i wont purchase the full size. The reason i gave it 4 stars was because i received a lot of compliments. The scent is nice and fresh, but nothing special for me. I have to say that it has good staying power and although i didnt smell it at the end of the day, people around me did and complimented it.

A little musky
I was hopeful with this one but the musk is a little strong.

Refreshingly Delicious
You definitely smell the orange citrus but it is beautifully blended with a light floral to give it a different/ exotic/ unforgettable scent. I love it, it's different and flirty.

Soapy Scent
I really wanted to love this perfume! But, unfortunately, this was not something I would wear. The citrus element is too strong and overpowers the other components. It reminds me of an orange/lemon scented soap from Bath & Body Works. The overall scent is almost too clean. I don't think it's very sexy to go around smelling like soap. I wish it had some deeper notes to level out the blood orange and clementine. I will be giving away this sample to someone else who will use it.

Masculine Citrus
Although I did not enjoy this on myself, this smelled wonderful on my boyfriend. It is a very citrusy vetiver scent that could be worn by anyone, although I prefer smelling vetiver on men. This scent is super fresh and perfect for summer. I smelled this all day so longevity is great.

Unique Citrus
This is a beautiful scent 😍😍 a warm and musk citrus. Very interesting for a citrus scent. I’m very surprised and happy with this scent. We will see how it wears!!
