Banana Republic is an internationally famous fashion brand established in 1978 by a couple who enjoyed traveling the world. The initial plan of Mel and Patricia Ziegler was to start a modest shop with a safari motif. Instead, they eventually launched a boutique in the Mill Valley neighborhood of Northern California.
They were already well-known for purchasing unique apparel items on their travels. The company rose to fame for its hand-drawn merchandise catalog that featured fictionalized explorer tales alongside objects for sale.
From that first bold vision, the business has grown to encompass 32 nations globally. Banana Republic boasts an entire wardrobe of favorites, including jewelry, clothes, handbags, and fragrances. They claim that everything they offer is “made for a life in motion.”
Their first fragrance was introduced in 1995. It was followed by a variety of popular collections with varied themes. Currently, Banana Republic has 48 fragrances. They also collaborated with known perfumers such as Honorine Blanc and Christelle Laprade.
Life in Motion
The Banana Republic Classic fragrance embodies the brand’s originators’ philosophies. Banana Republic Classic was introduced in 1995 by perfumer Jean-Claude Delville.
The intricacies of its taste are defined by citrus, light and floral, and spicy and fruity components. Its top notes of bergamot, clementine, and pink grapefruit contribute to its citrusy, tropical character. Floral notes of syringa and honeysuckle form the bouquet’s core, which is set above a foundation of ginger, white musk, and woody accords.
This scent is a member of the citrus aromatic family, with a moderate duration and a pleasant trail. It is ideal for wearing in warm weather.
