Review: Goldfield & Banks Pacific Rock Moss
Let’s be honest, there’s a lot to love about living in Australia! We’re blessed with remarkable landscapes, stunning beaches and not to mention an enviable climate. While it can be argued that we don’t know ‘cold’ compared to some of our European counterparts, one thing is certain, we can get away with wearing a refreshing fragrance almost year-round.
Australian fragrance house Goldfield & Banks has created a collection of scents capturing the essence of our beloved landscapes, and the Pacific Rock Moss fragrance is a scent that I’ve been indulging in over the last few weeks. Taking inspiration from the South Coast of New South Wales, this aromatic scent features a distinct marine accord which will transport you to a lush coastal walk on a beautiful summer day.
Fragrance Name: Goldfield & Banks Pacific Rock Moss
Fragrance notes: Blending a decadent array of International aromas, the hero in this scent is Australian Rock Moss giving this scent its aquatic accord. The fragrance also features Italian Lemon, French Sage, Geranium from Egypt and Cedar Wood from Virginia at its base.
Described as: A refreshing fragrance which combines a marine accord with vibrant citrus and held together by a warming blend of woods and musk. Labelling this scent as refreshing really does undersell it. Unlike many ‘fresh’ men's fragrances, this one packs a punch with its intensity, complexity and depth.
Wear it: A daytime fragrance which can be worn Spring, Summer and Autumn. I would recommend this scent for a refined lunch, coffee date or chillin' around Sydney’s affluent East. Pacific Rock Moss is a luxurious scent which smells expensive and will definitely capture the attention of anyone in your presence.
Price: Goldfield & Banks Pacific Rock Moss 100ml Perfume Concentrate AUD 229
The verdict: What I enjoy most about this fragrance is its unique composition and longevity on the skin. Being a unisex fragrance, it has the freshness a man would enjoy, yet its sweetness and hypnotic blend of florals and woods will seduce women too. All round this fragrance is perfect for the Australian climate and can be dressed up or down regardless of the occasion. This scent is like an endless Australian Summer - what's not to love?
