As a blazing sun dips into the Indian Ocean, the scent of fragrant native fruits pervades the languorous evening breeze. A heavenly cocktail of citrus and spicy delights awaits, giving way to a deliciously gourmand and sensuous floral heart.
From Broome’s craggy inland wilderness, the Australian Desert Peach or Quandong – a fruiting shrub in the sandalwood family – lends the enchanting tart sweetness of its blossom to Sunset Hour, our latest release.
Fun and frivolous from the onset, Sunset Hour opens with the crisp pear, mandarin and desert peach accord – a tart peach and rhubarb nuanced fruity note with distinctive salt crusted, sun-kissed skin feel. Carrying through the heart, jasmine’s rich white floralcy with green mango, ginger and coconut cream enhance the tropical exoticism of the desert peach as pink pepper lends sharpness to this central ingredient’s tartness. All the while, Australian sandalwood, itself a close relative of the quandong, provides a spiced-green-woodsy springboard for the fruity decadence of the coconut and desert peach accord which carry through the plush musk-vanilla base.
A spirited fruity-floral-woody perfume with heady tropical flourishes contrasting luxuriously tactile woods and golden-hued gourmand notes, Goldfield & Banks presents with Sunset Hour an olfactory interpretation of Broome’s famed pastel hued sunsets – one that begs to be worn in the heat of summer under shade of a wide-brimmed straw hat.
Vibrantly intoxicating and deliciously irresistible, Sunset Hour is the first perfume in the world to incorporate an Australian Desert Peach note, and has become an instant favourite for many perfume lovers.
