Banana republic launched this perfume in 2009. The first thing a person will notice is the exquisitely crafted bottle. It has a beautiful artistic design that looks marvelous. It is made for men and the tone of the fragrance is made to be as soft and natural as can be. This ensures that the perfume is not overpowering to others around the wearer. Republic of men is definitely casual and makes for great everyday wear though it can be used for black tie affairs. The top notes are fig leaf, plum and valentine. The middle notes are sage, rosemary and jasmine. The bottom notes are musk, virginia cedar and sandalwood.
