Perfume Review: Blue Cypress by Goldfield & Banks

Blue Cypress is a sophisticated fragrance of rich woods and aromatic spices that is at once invigorating and grounding. The cobalt-coloured Australian Blue Cypress provides a fragrant woody base, lifted by a fusion of invigorating lavender and exotic patchouli, clove and star anise.

A fragrance inspired by the scent of dew evaporating from soft foliage as the sun casts its morning rays across a rainbow of towering eucalyptus and cypress trees.

This is the first Goldfield & Banks fragrance I try it took me a while to decide how I feel about it because the brand shows it as a unisex scent but to after trying it on my skin several times and in other people’s skin I could certainly say that is more a masculine scent, I personally didn’t like it on me because of that reason but I quite liked it on men.

The scent is aquatic but a strong presence of fresh woods and spices on it, the kind of combination than goes towards masculine scents, at the beginning I though it would be more a summer scent, but now that the cold is back I tried it out and quite liked how it works having a fresh woodsy spicy sent that is not right in my face like it happens with the vast majority of male fragrances that the sillage becomes so nauseous (for example my neighbour perfume would invade the whole building stairs for a week) is not the classic sharp and strong woods either is quite smooth and gentle, what makes it great to use at the office. The duration goes around the 4 hours and you would only feel it if you are close to the person but is not invasive.

So far I consider it to be different from he current masculine options, obviously is unisex so any woman who is up for these type of scents should give it a go.
