Epitomising a feel-good and upbeat approach to life, Banana Republic is all about individual, classic style with a modern twist; of unexpected details and surprise.
Accessible luxury, timeless style and a casual attitude are the calling cards of this sophisticated American lifestyle brand. It is the home of covetable, uncomplicated style.
Quality and authenticity affects every aspect of Banana Republic, from its clothing to its perfume. Banana Republic fragrances are heavily influenced by the intrigue and mysticism of exploration and travel, taking note from the richness of natural materials and the organic rhythm of the earth.
Banana Republic was originally founded in 1978 by Mel and Patricia Ziegler, a husband and wife team who wanted to create a space that provided safari adventure wear and travel clothing. Their eccentric approach to retail included hand illustrated catalogues and atmospheric shops complete with smoke machines and tropical props.
The popular chain was acquired in 1983 by Gap, who turned Banana Republic into the laidback lifestyle brand that we know today. The brand still links back to their geological roots and place great emphasis upon the care of the environment, and these are elements central to the Banana Republic fragrance collection.
The Discover Collection includes Alabaster, Malachite, Rosewood, Slate and Black Walnut. These fragrances reveal the natural and earthy side of the Banana Republic brand. Each scent is designed around the idea of discovery; of personal journey, retrospection and cherished memories.
The Legacy Collection includes W, Classic and the Republic Collection. These luxurious, understated fragrances reflect the prestige of the brand. They are fragrances for a modern soul, a harmony of old world elegance and contemporary energy.
