Banana Republic Modern is the newest collection of the brand’s signature fragrance for women and men. It represents the modern and easy going style of the brand.
Modern Woman has fruity floral scent, which celebrates Banana Republic’s California heritage – the perfect blend of effortless, chic style that completes the look from head to toe. It embodies a sensual spirit that champions authenticity, modern day adventure and exploration.
It starts with fresh, sparkling notes of Italian Bergamot and Nyphaea Waterlily. The heart has ultra-feminine Sun Goddess Rose petals, a key ingredient and exclusive Robertet specialty that delivers a signature floral impression and dries down to soft, white amber.
I find Modern Woman a little too bold and floral in my initial spray, but I fell in love with its scent after a few minutes. It’s soft and sweet, which is very feminine.
Modern Man, on the other hand, is inspired by a next generation of modern masculinity. The scent is a blend of cool and spicy notes. It opens with a sparkling watery accord and daikon, a first in fine fragrance as the signature. It’s a Japanese radish accord for a fresh and zesty scent. A study in contrast, the signature imparts a clean, modern aromatic top paired with a sensual incense-musky dry down to reflect the multi-faceted aspect of the man.
