What: Slate Men's Fragrance, $58
Why: When you think of Banana Republic – what crosses your mind? A perfect button-down for your man or perhaps that no-pleat khaki you want him to wear? There is new reason, my friend, to walk the aisles of the BR and its name is Slate. While Slate is self-described as 'a crisp blend of refreshing citrus and invigorating ginger', I'd use a different description to put this fantastic aroma into better context. Imagine for a second your man is in an orange grove on a clear crisp day – and that orange grove happens to be on a huge yacht that is cruising through the Caribbean waters at ten knots. A cool breeze is blowing across the bow of the yacht and your man has a giant (but sexy) smile on his face. Now bottle that up and sell it in a beautiful 100ml. bottle and you have (wait for it) – Slate.
Bonus: A bottle of Slate comes in a very slick black box that is worth keeping for storage.
