Silky Woods 2ml sample
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 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.
All our perfumes have a concentration of +/- 20% essences and are tested under extreme humid weather conditions.

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.

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).
Some of the samples are gorgeous, others are truly vile. The best thing is this sample kit to try them all before you buy full size ones. They are far too expensive for buying as a bottle, but with some samples you can mix and match for a while and they go quite far. Poor sillage - scents barely last an hour - but you can layer and use some moisturiser to make them stay longer. Perhaps if they had body cream in these fragrances it would allow for layering, but right now don't expect much staying power from any of them. Pretty average for perfumes, but nice they are Australian.
Bought a sample of all the fragrances offered by Goldfield and Banks. I look for moderate projection (~elbow length), longevity (next morning), self pleasure (can still get occasional wiffs without becoming anosmic) & great scent.
Purple Suede "Pur-sueded" me in all these regards. I think it is a criminally underrated Smooth Leather scent that should be introduced to fragheads who get their heads fragged with most leathers (headache).
When I save up, I will buy a full bottle as my token 'leath' scent!
Silky woods I find a little feminine on my skin but is unisex & Wood infusion can be used as a base to boost both Silky woods and Purple Suede.
The sample set arrived beautifully packaged and all the fragrances are amazing. I’m very impressed at the use of native Australian plants in the fragrance and have appreciated the different scents.
I ordered the full collection of samples and have thoroughly enjoyed them all. Each one is beautifully complex and unique, so there is something here for all palettes and tastes. They arrived quickly and the samples are the perfect size to travel with and will last you through multiple occasions.
