Celebrating Agarwood or Oud, Dimitri (founder of G&B) wanted to create a luxe and modern interpretation of this special ingredient. Encased in molten gold and infused with precious Agarwood…needless to say we have fallen in love.
Silky Woods is part of the Botanical Series by Goldfield & Banks. Showcasing the precious wood species harvested sustainably for the first time in perfume history in the Daintree Rainforest in Tropical Queensland, Silky Woods is a delightful and delicate yet very sensual blend.
Would you just look a the bottle! Every French glass bottle is lacquered in gold and looks as amazing in real life as it sounds.

HOW IT WEARS
Deliciously warm Vanilla embedded in silky woods, this scent has a decent projection that could be smelt on our skin for at least 8 hours after the first delightful spritz. Like the other fragrances in the range, Silky Woods is a parfum extract so the longevity and strength is definitely there, but without being overpowering. The first spritz is a gorgeous, earthy vanilla hit which settles onto the skin bringing out the smoke and woods. It isn’t an overly sweet vanilla and on the skin the Agarwood comes to life as the notes settle beautifully onto the skin.
We love the immediate hit of this delicious and woody warm vanilla. It smells like vanilla beans nestled in the folds of an old suede jacket forgotten in an old barn after a rendezvous with a lover on a warm sunny day. This fragrance can definitely be worn day or night. During the warmer months it will mingle with the heat on the skin and bring the vanilla to life. In the cooler months it will literally warm you with its sweet, musky tones; like a warm hug or a fluffy winter blanket.
