Included in the mix are limited-edition gift sets for men and women ($64 for women's; $60 for men's) that offer up a 100mL bottle of Fragrance, a 50 mL tube of Body Cream and a 50 mL tube of Shower Gel housed in round hatboxes adorned with chocolate brown bows and lids colored to reflect the scents nestled inside.

Malachite – Banana Republic’s newest women’s fragrance, this graceful floral-floral has notes of peony, winter pear and sandalwood.

Alabaster – This bright bouquet floral-floral is blooming with notes of lotus flower, wild rose and musks.

Rosewood – Opulent and delicate, this floral-oriental contains notes of bergamot champagne, white tea leaves and white amber.

For men, sets come with a 100 mL bottle of Fragrance, a 50 mL tube of Shower Gel and a 50 mL tube of After-Shave Balm and are each packaged in square boxes adorned with velvet ribbon that mirrors the spirit of the fragrance it houses. Choose from the following fragrances:

Cordovan – Banana Republic’s newest men’s fragrance, this a ruggedly masculine modern-woody blend contains notes of ebony spices, orris and vintage leather.

Slate – This cool and clean aromatic-green has notes of glacier citrus water, soft nutmeg, silver sage and hydroponic ginger root.

Black Walnut – Sensual and modern, this aromatic-woody fragrance has notes of cognac, tobacco leaves and cedarwood. ·

Banana Republic Candles ($24.00) are actually one of my very favorites - they burn cleanly and have great throw. This year's seasonal offering is Winter. With notes of cassis, cranberry, raspberry, fir balsam, pine, amber, cedar wood, musk and vanilla, it evokes warmth and comfort.
