Goldfield and Banks - Southern Bloom
A very special limited edition, Southern Bloom takes as its inspiration the strange brown flower known as boronia, which blooms only briefly each year in September on Australia's southernmost island, Bruny, which lies off the coast of Tasmania. Once sold out, the fragrance cannot be produced again until a new batch of boronia absolute is obtained: this is slow perfume at its best. Boronia absolute has a very distinctive aroma: it smells sweet and nectarous, like a juicy white floral, but also features a warm, nutty woody aroma profile that's just as important. It smells intoxicating and unusual. It is one of the most expensive raw materials in perfumery due to its rarity, geographical inaccessibility, and extremely short growing season.
A note from the brand notes that Southern Bloom is a "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."
