  • I think they were going for the sombre look that is perhaps a timeless classic
  • I thought it looked a bit cheap as well, and the lid looks a bit plastic as well, which didn’t do much for the overall cheaper look of the bottle

      I got this scent for the bargain price of £9 a couple of months ago. I had never smelt it, but like the other Banana Republic scents, so thought for that price it was worth it to try. After all if I didn’t like it, then I’m sure someone I knew wouldn’t mind a nearly full bottle of Perfume. I see this is currently selling at £7.45 for the 50ml bottle and that the recommended retail price is meant to be around £22, if that is right.

      This is in a simple white box, which is quite thick cardboard. The writing is in black and


      this just look simplistic and nothing much to it. No fancy colouring or patterns. I think they were going for the sombre look that is perhaps a timeless classic.

      The bottle is quite simple as well. It is a clear glass with the writing over the middle of it. I thought it looked a bit cheap as well, and the lid looks a bit plastic as well, which didn’t do much for the overall cheaper look of the bottle. I could perhaps understand that look if this was quite a cheap scent, but if I was paying full price then I would expect a ...

        So how did this smell? It was alright. It smelt like a few of the Perfumes out there, and nothing that new or special. It was a bit flowery, and a bit fresh smelling, but not any fruity scents in here. I would say this mainly smelt like Lillies and perhaps some White flowers with a dash of sea air as well. This lasted a good length of time as well, and although it

        did fade a bit, it was still a good strength of scent even after a while.

        I wouldn’t use this again and did end up giving the bottle away. It was nice enough but just that bit bland and there was nothing much to this. It reminded me a bit of Magnolia and also a nice clean, fresh scent it was slightly too floral for my liking.

        Perhaps more suited to the over 40’s and not my cup of tea. Sometimes it’s worth a try when the offers are so good, as you could end up with a scent that you love for this bargain price.
