GOLDFIELD & BANKS
GOLDFIELD & BANKS SOUTHERN BLOOM
"Southern Bloom celebrates the little-known ‘Australian Spring,’ in September, with a focus on the enchanting native flower, Brown Boronia during its ephemeral bloom.
Goldfield & Banks Australia observes and interprets this heavenly moment using French perfumery techniques to elaborate and refine this scent into a uniquely Australian, multifaceted Spring-Bouquet.
Brown Boronia is the only Boronia species that an absolute has been collected from. The absolute is distinctive and one of the most expensive perfume materials in the world. The rare flowering plant, native to Australia, blooms
only for a few short weeks in springtime – usually late September.
Only the Brown Boronia is farmed and the absolute extracted in one remote location in the world – Tasmania, the most southern island state of Australia. A unique and high-priced extraction method (USD 10K per kilo) has been developed to obtain the absolute essence.
Southern Bloom has an immediate luxurious, pure and enchanting floral-woods fragrance with a smooth, creamy texture and glimpses of exquisite green notes. Opulent, sophisticated and luxurious. The exotic woody-floral oriental fragrance bursts and billows in swirls of fresh floral notes offering a feeling of enchantment and luxury. Precious Boronia Absolute, Jasmine Sambac and Ylang Ylang create a rich and unique exotic floral accord, cassis (blackcurrant) and Italian Mandarin add fresh, green and hesperidia luster. A creamy and smooth texture comes from a blend of Australian Sandalwood, Italian Iris and Coconut accord. Base Notes Vetiver, Amber and Musk enrich and add longevity and depth." - a note from the brand.
