Inspired by a holiday Dimitri took to Fraser Island – the lush nature and the abundance of different woods found on the idyllic island felt so luscious and intriguing. This rich, buttery and exotic fragrance pays homage to the incredible island paradise and the nature of this particular island. Giant trees, rural land, a beautiful picturesque beach and panoramic views. Wood Infusion feels soft and velvety on the skin – it is a rich wood with a familiar warmth to it. The hint of Iris gives this Goldfield and Banks scent a sophistication on the skin and a lightness that is like the soft island air.

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 warmth of Wood Infusion, this is such a sophisticated Oud based fragrance – softer and slightly sweet on the skin.
