Banana Republic Minis Review

Banana Republic has extended it’s line of popular fragrances to a new size, MINIS! Now the beauty of Banana Republic fragrance is available in a tiny size with a smaller price tag! Purchasing a mini version of these fragrances is a perfectly great investment since they are Eau de Parfum and not Eau de Toillete which means a beautifully lingering scent with a tiny touch of product!

Each Mini is an exact replica of it’s full size parent and is 7.5 ML in size for a mere $10 USD! Scents available for woman are:

  • Alabaster
  • Rosewood
  • Malachite

I tested Malachite out and it’s a gorgeous blend of peony, sandalwood, and hyacinth. The notes may shout scary floral but it’s actually a very light, fresh, crisp floral that’s quite addicting once on! You’ll find yourself sniffing your wrists on more than one occasion throughout the day!

I personally love the price at $10 USD plus I like to have a purse friendly version to tote around with me for touching up throughout the day although the scent lingered for such a long time I actually didn’t have to reapply at the end of the day!

I’m pretty pleased after trying out Malachite and I’m now curious about Alabaster and Rosewood! Those are next on my list to purchase and try out!

You can purchase Banana Republic Minis directly from their site by clicking here or visit your local store to snag yourself a bottle or two!

Love Banana Republic?

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    8 years ago, I owned a trio of Banana Republic scents: W, Classic and one other one whose name I can’t remember. Anyway, those three smelled heavenly, but this new trio of scents doesn’t get my vote; none of them are all that exceptional when compared to their crisp, clean predecessors.

    this is actually my 1st time trying one. I haven’t tried the other two but this one isn’t too bad. I was pleasantly surprised as you know how it goes with fragrances made exclusive for clothing shops 😛
