A true journey, each begins with the honest and elemental beauty of an Australian sunrise – fresh, crisp and pure, with aromatic and invigorating overtones. From this fresh, light, and joyous sunrise, journey to a floral, exotic, and simply dazzling fragrance summit where each perfume reveals its elixir of olfactory character. Journey then to the dappled light of sunset and bask in the perfume’s elegance as it lingers into the remains of the day. Luxurious and inspired, our niche approach to fragrances reveals a richness and ambition that has put us on the forefront of world-class fragrance development. – Goldfield&Banks official website
South Pacific Sandalwood; the epitome of wild tropical beauty. Carnal and bountiful, Island Lush is a sumptuous perfume with a heart of modern woods. A wind of exoticism transports you on a journey to islands beyond the horizon, where radiant spices, powdery orris, vegetal roots and luscious resins envelop smooth wood species.
Island Lush is a woody and spicy composition, which includes ingredients such as: guaiac wood, nutmeg, ginger, bergamot, pink pepper, iris, cedar, geranium, sandalwood, leather, vetiver, benzoin and patchouli. The opening of the fragrance is a mixture of leather and woody notes with a characteristic powdery note for iris. In the background an interesting combination of ginger, geranium and bergamot. It seems to me that this mix created an interesting and mysterious sweetness in the background. In the next stage, the smell gains strength. We get even more leathery fragrance notes. Powdery accents of iris slightly recede into the background and then aromatic vetiver appears. This adds lightness. It gets even more interesting later. Earthy patchouli and benzoin appear. If you love woody and resinous fragrances, Island Lush will take you to your dream place on earth. One spray is enough.
The parameters of the fragrance are very good. The composition is durable and aromatic, which allows you to enjoy the fragrance for up to 12 hours. I am delighted with Island Lush, because it seems to me that it is a mysterious and multi-layered fragrance. Each time I feel a different connection and it allows me to discover its secrets.
