A New Fragrance by Banana Republic is Coming Soon

Banana Republic is launching Republic of Women soon (I thought it was already out, but I'm not finding it on the BananaRepublic.com website), and it's a lovely fragrance.

It's definitely in the floral category, but it's a sophisticated floral, which is exactly what you would expect from Banana Republic. The top notes are:

  • osmanthus
  • bergamot
  • lychee

Middle notes of:

  • peony
  • jasmine
  • Moroccan rose
Base notes include:

  • precious woods
  • soft musk
I'm not a huge fan when I first apply it, but the drydown is actually quite lovely. It kind of hits you with it's florals, then settles into a nice, wearable, daytime fragrance. This doesn't grab you and make you believe in it, but it is subtle and respectable.
