Purple Suede is the second addition to the Botanical Series, heroing Tasmanian Lavender. Brought to our shores in early 1900s, the crops that exist in Tasmania today were originally cultivated from true French lavender sourced from the Maritime Alps in Provence (which, funnily enough, enjoys a similar climate to ours). With Tasmania’s long summer days and cool breezes blowing off the southern ocean at night, its climate and soil conditions are ideal for cultivating lavender. Essential oils of Tasmania have worked closely with the University of Tasmania over many years to establish “Tasmanian lavender” which is now recognised as its own distinctive sub-species.

For Purple Suede, Dimitri Weber imagined the scent of aromatic fields of sunburnt lavender, where blossoms are crisped by the fierce heat of the sun. Paired with the scent of rust-coloured horse saddles, this perfume reveals a distinctively rich and dry silage. A modern leathery perfume of precious woods, spices and Australian lavender that creates a full-bodied silage from sunrise to sunset.

Purple Suede opens with dry lavender and sparkly pepper embedded in soft suede. After spending a bit of time on the skin, the fragrance enrichens, revealing the earthy, sweet patchouli, and the anise of the hyssop flowers. The dry down is all about the animalic oud and civet, plus of course, the suede. This scent is a velvety, narcotic cocktail that stays on the skin for 8-10 hours.

We love how Purple Suede conjures the scent of sunburnt lavender – rich and oily, blooms crispened by the sun. The suede/leather notes are complemented by the oud and civet which are so dense and deep, reminding us of sweet, smoky tobacco. Almost like you are in rural Tassie, wild and beautiful lavender fields to your right as you ride a majestic horse through the open fields to your left. The scent of the leather saddle, the animalic, warm tones of this beautiful animal, and then the fresh aromatic scent of blooming lavender under the hot summer sun. Mysterious and alluring, we also think of someone stylish wearing this scent wearing a deep purple suede jacket.

Goldfield & Banks, Australia’s first luxury fragrance house, was founded by Sydney-based Dimitri Weber in 2016. After moving to Australia, French-Belgian Weber fell in love with the country’s lush, aromatic, and botanical beauty, and felt compelled to create a perfume line paying tribute to its extraordinary beauty. Combining the science of Australia’s most authentic native essences with centuries of French expertise in the art of perfume making, Goldfield & Banks’ perfumes are a quest for the ultimate Australian olfactory experience.
The Goldfield & Banks range contains an array of carefully chosen native botanicals, selected to create a new and haunting Australian dream – one of burning deserts, sparkling coastal vistas and deep, beautifully scented forests. The sustainable quality of these ingredients represents an innovative and contemporary approach to perfume oil production and showcases Australia’s leading expertise in botanical research and development. The result is a modern yet timeless collection of genderless luxury perfumes for all genders.
