Encased in molten gold and infused with precious Agarwood, Silky Woods is the aptly named debut fragrance in a new luxury collection called 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 that captures Australia's sensorial experience.
To a modern oriental sillage of suede, exotic vanilla and smoky tobacco leaves, Goldfield & Banks has added refined essences of saffron, incense, ylang ylang and native sandalwood.
Silky Woods is a celebration of the abundance of organic ingredients in Australia, and the home-grown innovation with which they are transformed into essences coveted across the globe.

About Silky Woods perfume:
The perfume is a more subtle, luxe and modern interpretation of agarwood (also called oud). One that is delightful to wear on any occasion and which offers a sensation of a distinctive gourmand and musky fragrance on a silky smooth skin.
Committed to showcasing Australia’s world-leading expertise in botanical research and development, Goldfield & Banks has encased its newest creation in packaging as lavish as the scent it holds. Every French glass bottle is lacquered in gold, in a tribute to the romance of the Australian Gold Rush and the seduction of the nation’s indigenous flora, nuts, woods and seeds that inspires every one of the house’s fragrances.

The result of this new creation is the scent of a voyage in search of Australia’s ultimate olfactive treasures, a voyage that is reminiscent of botanist Joseph Banks’ first visit to Australia in 1770. There he discovered exotic botanicals formerly unknown to science, in the same way Goldfield & Banks founder Dimitri Weber has made it his mission to laud Australian native ingredients since he launched his luxury fragrance house in 2016.
A modern day explorer of scent and sensuality, Weber was transfixed when he visited Agarwood plantations in the nation’s tropics. Mesmerised by the complexity of planting techniques and the sustainable methods applied to harvesting and extracting the precious and unique oil, he forged a friendship with the growers in Far North Queensland.
The new Botanical Series by Goldfield & Banks pays tribute to the exceptional purity, idyllic climate and richness of soil that has made Australia a fertile continent like no other. Long renowned as the home of clean beauty trends, Australia is now the new fragrance frontier cultivating locally the world’s most prestigious perfume ingredients in a serene and green environment.
Silky Woods is cruelty free, and is created following the stringent health guidelines set by the International Fragrance Association (IFRA 49th Amendment).
