    Aramis New West is a winning crystal clean aroma with an icy sweetness. This brings a pleasant vibe to the senses and females instantly pick this up. Really good fragrance with a bottle readily available in my collection all the time.

    I tried this classic for the first time today. I really like it. I don't really know how to classify New West For Him, because it's very unique. This smells sort of like an early version of an aquatic fragrance (e.g., Horizon), before the synthetic "marine" note Calone was overused in fragrances, with a lot of sharp wood notes and green oakmoss blended in. It's very spicy, and the oakmoss, sandalwood and patchouli give it a very 80s feel, but without it being heavy. It reminds me somewhat of Oscar de la Renta Pour Lui, believe it or not, if you lightened it and added mint and a dab of a marine note. I could swear I detect a little leather in this too, as it's got a slight sweetness to it that leather often brings to a scent. New West also reminds me a lot of Yatagan, only fresher and without the animalic notes. Many call this an aquatic scent, and that's probably because it does contain Calone. However, I don't like that label because the Calone is subtle and not overdone, and this scent strikes me much more as freshly aromatic and mossy, rather than aquatic. I think of spices and green when I smell New West, not water or the ocean. If this is an aquatic, then it's the best aquatic I've ever smelled, probably because it was released long before the aquatic fragrance fad got out of control. Chalk up points for yet another excellent fragrance in Aramis' Gentleman's Collection.

    I kept my expectations on New West for Him ver low so when I finally got to test it I've to admit I've been very positively impressed. I honestly thought about something aquatic, sort of an ante litteram version of Light Blue but no way... New West for Him is very herbaceous and aromatic. It opens with aldehydes and bergamot joined by a minty vibe and, yes, some calone. It's surely refreshing but at the same time anything but dull as geranium and artemisia provide a contrasting and almost astringent undertone while a fougere-y lavander/mossy accord resembles many classic compositions from the same period. Sharp woods (cedarwood) and culinary herbs (bay leaf, rosemary and oregano) are remarkable throughout but they're never overdone. A great option for anyone who's into lighter / fresher fragrances but want to avoid the chemical fruit blast of many composition of the same genre.

    As well as many underlined this interesting watery fougere introduces, though in the body of a very herbaceous and aromatic blend, the usage of the synthetic element of calone that would have been in a second time inserted in many following ozonic-marine modern (banal, chemical and anosmic) aquatic concoctions. While many of the recent aquatics are detergent, too metallic and synthetic like insecticids, this fragrance is wonderfully cool, fluid , woodsy, dry and aromatic (i would better write mentholated) due to a blend of mint, oregano, rosemary, lavender, artemisia and juniper. The initial irony feel has the body of natural geranium which on the side of herbs, hesperides and calone produces a sort of balsamic oceanic feel. The coolness is airy and refreshing in a very aromatic way (due to the chord of herbs, lavender and calone)and the consistence is surprisingly natural and icy. The blue color of the bottle is perfect in order to represent the level of bracing coolness of the juice. The base is mossy and a bit ambery on the side of astringent woods and smoky patchouli. May be the masculine and dusty smokiness is made of nutmeg and a touch of tobacco and amber. A good juice for those that are looking for a more than decent woodsy and silvan aquatic.
