Though originally native to Western Australia, the boronia- a rare flowering shrub with a distinctive sweet and woodsy aroma- has thrived in the wilds of Tasmania. Now it's the centrepiece of Southern Bloom, the newest, most elegantly feminine release yet from Goldfield & Banks. Featuring a pure boronia flower absolute harvested from ruggedly beautiful Bruny Island during the renowned September "Spring Bloom" season, Southern Bloom is lavishly romantic, with smooth, rich white florals enhancing the sweet sophistication of the central ingredient, while a suite of fresh and earthy notes- French cassis, native Australian sandalwood, and Javan vetiver- sustains and celebrates boronia's more unique characteristics. The results are a floral scent both refined and naturalistic, where floral sweetness, creamy woodsiness, and earthy green tones mesh seamlessly. As a proof of Goldfield & Banks' thesis that exquisite natural materials ought to be showcased in all of their three-dimensional glory, it's already a winner. As a versatile, sensual floral appropriate for any occasion, it's downright marvelous.

She has a lot of presence without being offensive - you’ll definitely be noticed while wearing this. I get sandalwood predominately with a hint of fruit and the jasmine comes in during the dry down. For me, it’s pleasant but not interesting on my skin. Someone better suited to woody fragrances would probably love it. Leans feminine in my opinion, however, it would be nice on anyone.
Don't know quite what to post here. I waited 9 days for my product. I still haven't received the other three shipments that was ordered about the same time. Some disappointment there.
I ordered 6 mL of the Southern Bloom perfume. I love mimosa and ylang. Read the reviews and decided to try it. I have been most disappointed by what I have tried so far. It is nothing at all like I expected when first sprayed and the dry down is offensive to my nose. To me the odor is off-putting because it's reminiscent of old perfume mixed with sweat. Eau de Sweat I'm thinking it is the musk notes in it. I don't care for musk but I really didn't think it would make that much difference. I will continue to evaluate it because $23 for 6 ml is quite expensive for a sample. It is for this very reason that I never blind-buy perfumes!! I really had high hopes for this perfume.
Would smell pretty good on a pretty gal.
Btw, I'm a 21 yr old college dude.
