Boom - Bloom
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.

A discovery. What smells so bewitching?
Compared to many others here I find this fragrance so beautiful and so interesting and unique.

The fragrance is so beautiful and so different from all other fragrances that I have tested and had so far and that says something. A total surprise. Special, beguiling and super pleasant.

The fragrance starts very floral but what a flower. Beguiling and so interesting. I didn't know this one and would have to read up. It must be the Australian Boronia. It knocks me out. I've been sniffing my arm all evening. My husband, who rarely comments on my fragrances, said that I smelled incredibly good.

The scent I can describe very difficult because that is with nothing to compare what I'm now in my very long perfume journey have smelled. Sweet, lovely with a bit of lipstick note but at the same time a bit powdery with a hint of green from the vetiver..

The scent has pretty good longevity though the isn't a performance bomb. The sillage is beautifully moderate. Who prefers a strong sillage, must overspray a bit or add after a few hours..Before the scent retreats completely after 6-7 hours, sandalwood and vetiver becomes more apparent. The currants smell I not at all... In the end, the fragrance is very unisex for me but only at the end, otherwise I would call the fragrance a woman's fragrance, although everyone can of course wear what pleases..

The fragrance is not sexy but super elegant and just uniquely feminine.... You have to be able to wear the fragrance in my opinion. The is absolutely not old-fashioned but to a 20 year old I do not see the fragrance, but more to an elegant woman over 30....

In search of the rare flower....
... through the jungles of Australia. Supposedly armed with camouflage clothing and appropriate equipment. Suddenly, on my search for the plant of desire, something hits me with full force in the face. It takes me a few minutes to regain my bearings, my head still aching. For God's sake, what was that? Nothing in sight. A glance next to me reveals: the shrub with the pink/pink little flowers is still wiggling. Is that how he blew me away? The Tasmanian Boronia!

Yeah, that's my first impression. A real floral whopper. Extremely. Very sad. Am of course again went in with expectations: something younger is the fragrance, I thought, the Blümelein dance around the Boronia. No, there's no dancing. There's just something there and it doesn't go away for a long time. I also find it a little old-fashioned - omega-like. I can still smell the sandalwood and the jasmine. But that's just my sensation.
The color of the Juice in the bottle also fits the fragrance very well. Dark pink...present

In the course of the fragrance, it calms down. Not a run-of-the-mill fragrance and it lasts and radiates. Didn't think it was that interesting, even in the progression. I think you either like him or just not. Can not imagine a 'goes so'.

Superb flowery fragrance
Southern Bloom is for me, overall, and as i have writen un the title, a superb flowery fragrance. The scent here is very natural and really...just great. The flowers shine un this perfume. What se find here the most is Boronia. I havent seen before this flower and i dont know how It smells but i think It must be something similar to an orchid since i get something like this un the mix. Them a very rich iris, more in the líne of Dior homme than un the líne of iris des champs, a very powdery iris with the make Up vibe and not a fresh and vright iris. At the same time the Jasmine gives some dirty character to the perfume what is really cool. What is weird is that I feel something like honey here but probably would be the ylang ylang with the coconut and the blackberries.
The opening is amazing, very dense and intense and attending to that It could be for sure one of my favourite perfumes. But thwn, after half an hours more or less, It becomes much more subtle and soft and adquiring a very short distances projection. The longevity is good but not also a beast. Therefore I find It a perfume more for warm days and probably better for daytime. I think It is totally unisex but men Who are afraid of flowers...please avoid It! :)

Great flowery fragrance where the Boronia is the Queen. Her court is formed by iris, Jasmine and ylang with the sweet touch of coconut
