Ellis Brooklyn Sci Fi

Ellis Brooklyn has popped up on my radar since it hit Sephora . I had yet to try it but fragrance fanatic that I am, I certainly was interested. Throw in a new perfume called Sci Fi and this Farscape/Stargate /Whovian gal is there.

Great name aside this newest release from the line founded by New York Times beauty writer Bee Shapiro is a beauty.   You can call it a vanilla blend but it's more interesting than that .

Effervescent  bergamot and bitter orange lead things off . The middle notes of green tea and pink freesia are then detectable with the tea note more prominent . Freesia , often too dewy for my taste in fragrances, is not like that here, instead it is sheer and soft in the background . The drydown gets cozy with warm woods and the vanilla bean note. Not deep nor too rich , this is not a heavy scent. Those woods float lightly and the vanilla is not sweet but gourmand making a nice grounding to the rest of the notes.

Sci Fi has light /medium sillage and wears somewhat close to the skin. Longevity is medium.  It doesn't fade quickly but lasts about 4 hours on me.

Ellis Brooklyn products if you aren't familiar are  phthalates , paraben and cruelty free . The brand uses recycled, lead-free glass and FSC-certified, Green Seal certified paper stock and is made in upstate New York.

Note List:
top: bergamot, bitter orange
mid: green tea, pink freesia
dry: cashmere woods, vanilla beans

Ellis Brooklyn Sci Fi is $ 100 for 50ml at Sephora and Shen Beauty
