Goldfield and Banks latest creation, Southern Bloom, honours the rare and enchanting native scented flower, the Boronia. The Tasmanian Boronia on blooms during its short September ‘spring-bloom’, on Australia’s southernmost island, Bruny off the coast of Tasmania. An immediately lavish, pure and sensational floral-woody fragrance, with a smooth, velvety sensation and glimpses of exquisite green notes. Goldfield and Banks interprets this heavenly moment of the ‘spring bloom’ creating a multi faceted, unique Spring bouquet. Brown Boronia (native to Australia) is the only Boronia species that an absolute has been collected from – it is distinctive and one of the most expensive perfume materials in the world due to its rarity. Southern Bloom is opulent, sophisticated and luxurious!
Made in small batches due to the rarity of the Boronia Essence, limited quantities are available so we’ve snapped up as many as we could…as we know you’ll all love it as much as we do!

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 the uniqueness of Southern Bloom – as the Boronia is only available in such limited quantities this is a very special perfume. We love the slightly powdery, heady quality of this floral fragrance.
