Goombay was named after our summer festivals celebrated yearly here in the in the Bahamas since 1974. It is a celebration of Bahamian dance, music, food, and culture and is a huge draw for tourists every year.
A popular instrument used in music in the Bahamas is a goat sheep drum that makes a very deep low sound. This low beat was described as a “Goom Bah” sound – hence the word Goombay was derived from the sound of the drum.
To all of our valued customers – we have unfortunately run into another shipping challenge. United States customs is currently not accepting any international shipping of fragrances so unfortunately we will be temporarily suspending our shipping until we are able to sort out another way of shipping our products to our clients.
Our sincere apologies – hopefully we will find another route soon. Please check back on our website for further updates or email us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any further questions or comments.
Thank you again for your continued patronage.
my favorite of your perfumes, this one isn’t too fruity or frilly. I get lots of compliments on it!
Excellent fragrance. Never found another that I love as much. Discovered Goombay while vacationing in Freeport over 20 years ago
I absolutely adore this fragrance!! My sister brought two bottles back for me in the 1980’s and I have used it sparingly only for special occasions. I have to have more!!
