Goldfield & Banks: Australia’s First Genderfluid Luxury Fragrance
Dimitri Weber is no stranger to the world of international luxury perfumery. With 24 years of experience, French-Belgian Dimitri fell in love with Australia’s lush botanical beauty that he began his quest to develop luxurious genderfluid fragrances featuring rare, pure and precious Australian essences previously unexplored in modern perfumery.
Goldfield & Banks takes Australia's most authentic native essences and combines it with centuries of French expertise in the art of perfume making with the goal of creating the ultimate Australian olfactory experience.
Sunset Hour - Broome, Western Australia
The latest fragrance by Goldfield & Banks pays tribute to Broome’s iconic sunset. Watching the sunset over the ocean is Dimitri’s favourite time on a summer day. Australia’s native fruit accord, Quandong, also known as Desert Peach is a key ingredient in this fragrance.
Sunset Hour opens with a crisp Pear, Mandarin and Dessert Peach accord. Carrying through the heart is Jasmine’s rich white floralcy with green mango, ginger and the coconut cream enhances tropical exoticism of the Desert Peach. Australian Sandalwood gives it a spiced-green-woodsy springboard for the fruity decadence of the coconut and Desert Peach, which carries through to the plush Musk-Vanilla base.
Southern Bloom - Bruny Island, Tasmania
Southern Bloom honours the rare and enchanting native scented flower, the Boronia during its short September ‘spring-bloom’, on Australia’s southernmost island, Bruny off the coast of Tasmania. The absolute value of boronia is distinctive and one of the most expensive perfume materials in the world.
This lavish floral-woody fragrance encompasses Boronia Absolute from Tasmania, Jasmine Sambac from India, Cassis from France, Sandalwood from Australia, Believer from Indonesia, Ylang Ylang from Madagascar, Coconut Accord and Iris from Italy.
Wood Infusion - Fraser Island, Queensland
This is a unique fragrance that I insist on highlighting as I feel that it can be an alternative to Aquatic fragrances that we all own and love and would work fabulously in this humid climate we thrive in.
Inspired by the lush nature of the balmy heritage listed Fraser Island in the Pacific Ocean, Wood Infusion is a celebration of all wood species found around the island. This fragrance is an exotic infusion of Australian woods enriched with Sandalwood Album, Iris and velvety Agarwood (Oud Wood).
This unique combination offers men and women a sensation of a creamy and rich scent crafted from nature’s most noble botanicals. Wood Infusion is cruelty free, vegan and is created following the stringent health guidelines set by the International Fragrance Association.
Pacific Rock Moss - South Coast, New South Wales
It is almost a crime to not include our go-to Aquatic fragrance but this is the “IT” Aquatic perfume that is a best-seller! Goldfield & Banks are the first fragrance house to use Australian Coastal Moss as an ingredient in their scents.
Lemon from Italy, Sage from France, Geranium from Egypt and Cedar Wood from Virginia, United States, places this fragrance ahead of competition. This distinctive marine note, graced with aromatic essences brings you on a lush coastal walk on a perfect summer day. Cedar wood gives this perfume a sturdy base on which to reveal a fresh, sea spray scent that speaks of summer days diving into Australia's blue waters.
The best part, this fragrance is for everyone, which makes it perfect for women like me who always spritz my husband’s fragrances instead of mine.
Saving the star, for last but not least, Silky Woods is the debut fragrance of a new luxury collection called Botanical Series by Goldfield & Banks.
Encased in molten gold and infused with precious Agarwood harvested sustainably for the first time in perfume history.
Silky Woods is a delicate yet sensual blend of Vanilla from Tahiti, Ylang Ylang from Madagascar, Cinnamon from Ceylon, Tobacco Leaves, Incense and Sandalwood from Australia.
With a fan following of A-List celebrities, Desert Rosewood is a testament to word-of-mouth marketing. This rich, amber and woody fragrance reveals a sweetness of mandarin and vanilla, before settling into an exotic blend of wood and spices.
Featuring an exotic ingredient from Australia, Buddha Wood Oil, Desert Rosewood is yet another genderfluid fragrance, this fragrance is best suited for anyone who loves amber, vanilla and leathery notes.
Goldfield & Banks is sold exclusively at Amaris.com, Amaris Paragon and Amaris Vivocity.
