I had had Banana Republic’s Alabaster fragrance on my wish list for a while and finally ended up purchasing it last year.
~ Price ~
It is available at allbeauty.com for £19.95 for the 100ml eau de parfum. The recommended retail price is £46.00.
~ Packaging ~
The bottle is a tear drop shape and goes down to a point so you cannot store it on a shelf standing upright, but it does have a flat edge on the top half of the back of the bottle so it can rest on this flat edge.
~ Scent ~
It has a light, soft, floral scent.
The notes in this fragrance are listed as lotus, rose and musk.
The rose scent is strong, but not dominating and the lotus brings a pleasant sweetness to the fragrance. At times I pick up on a candy-like sweet scent that reminds me of Palma Violets sweets with the same powdery scent, but obviously without the scent of violets.
I think this fragrance offers an interesting floral combination, but it is a very simple scent.
It is pretty and quite subtle. I want to describe it as clean, but what I mean by that is, being quite subtle, it smells as though it could just be a nice fabric conditioner or shampoo that is making you smell nice. I mean that in the nicest possible way.
I really like this fragrance.
I don’t think anyone would find it offensive. It’s difficult to say what age group this scent would appeal to. I don’t think it has a particularly young scent so I think it would be a good choice for women of all ages.
It is one I have always chosen to wear during the day rather than for nights out as it is quite subtle, but I do notice and enjoy it on myself during the day and I have found that it lasts quite well too. It is still evident on my skin after 6 hours of wear.
I am very pleased with this purchase. It is available at a great price and is a very nice fragrance.
I would recommend this and I would purchase it again in the future.
