Desert Rosewood presents a rich, leathery fragrance that evokes the thick, arid forests of the Victorian Central Highlands. A heady rush of resinous Australian Desert Rosewood reveals a sweetness of Mandarin and Vanilla, before finally settling into an exotic blend of wood and spice. Just like a rejuvenating bush walk through the Central Highlands under the warming sun, this scent makes you feel like you are breathing in the clean and earthy bush air – the wood of the trees, a slight dryness in the air and a soft and warm resinous base. Goldfield and Banks Desert Rosewood is a scent for men and women, it speaks of adventures through thick forests where ancient trees and fresh young ferns provide a mingling of old and new, rich and herbaceous.

ABOUT THE BRAND
Created in Sydney by the wonderful and charismatic Dimitri Weber, the Goldfield and Banks perfume collection was founded in 2016 and heroes our incredible Australian landscape and native botanicals. After moving to Australia, Belgian born Weber fell in love with “Australia’s lush, aromatic and botanical beauty, it’s sweeping plains, turquoise fringed coast, ochre red interiors and harsh, dramatic landscapes” feeling compelled to create a perfume line that pays tribute to the extraordinary beauty of Australia”. Goldfield and Banks is a “luxurious and precious collection that is gender free, featuring exceptional pure and rare Australian essences and oils unexplored in modern perfumery. Combining centuries of French fragrance methodology, it is, quite simply a quest for the ultimate Australian olfactory experience”.
HOW IT WEARS
The Goldfield and Banks collection are all Parfum concentration, so they last beyond 8 hours on the skin (and even longer when spritzed on clothing or in your hair). Whilst not too intense or overwhelming, they have great longevity.
We love how the soft, sweet resinous base of Desert Rosewood – the warmth on the skin which leaves an almost powdery softness.
