It’s about time we go back to the basics and remember a classic scent — literally, Classic by Banana Republic. I bought a bottle of this perfume YEARS ago, and it’s still a go-to for me when I need a light, lasting, and fresh scent. It’s perfection!
As described by Fragrantic, “Banana Republic Classic is an unisex fragrance created by Jean-Claude Delville in 1995. This refreshing and light composition opens with herbal notes, bergamot, pink grapefruit and clementine. The heart is a floral bouquet with a sering and honeysuckle, placed on the base of ginger, white musk and woody notes.”
The citrus notes are the most noticeable, which is why the scent smells so light and fresh, and almost summery. However, the floral notes are definitely there, which balances the entire scent.
What I love about this scent is that it lasts all day, and it’s very clean. I often wear it when I’m meeting someone new or going to work, when I don’t want anything over-powering.
