    It's hard to compare them since they are both very different fragrances.

    Silver Factory - Violets, metallic resin and incense.
    is more interesting one to my nose but that also makes it harder to wear. Its best for cooler weather.

    West Side - Rose/flowers, sweetvanilla + musk
    Much easier to wear than Silver Factory but you have to be comfortable wearing flowers.

    I would not buy either of these blind

    "Better" is a relative term with Bond No. 9, since IMO they're all consistently mediocre.

    But yes, based on the samples I've tried these are two very different scents you're comparing. Silver Factory is more interesting to me.

    Both are very interesting.
    Silver factoy being resinous, smoky, with notes of iris and franckincense. I love the initial carrot-y and burnt accords, but then settles into a nondescript dry airy woody something. but nice nevertheless.
    West Side is indeed very beautiful and longlasting. A very prominent peony note with roses melds with huge sandalwood and vanilla. It is absolutely gorgeous and I love it.

    cheers

    I thought Silver Factory was okay but got a negative reaction from someone so I stopped wearing it.

    I would also go for Silver Factory as a masculine post-industrial scent; you will love it; West Side is very different; being more of a summer scent in decadent Capri/Nice/Montecarlo...

    I attach my review of West Side for your information...

    Rose' wine and italian vanilla ice cream in a typical french gelaterie watching the world go by...that is my description of West Side by Bond no 9.

    It lasts forever and keeps you wrapped up in a jolly dream of flowers and rose'wine for a very long while...wonderful stuff; great for evening wear and totally unisex...big thumbs up !!!

    Hi Francop, thank you for the input. But it's kind of late right now. =) I bought Silver Factory and it is indeed an amazing fragrance. Unfortunately, it doesn't last on my skin so I sold it right away.

    Now, your review on West Side seems to be very interesting!
