NEW YORK, May 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Banana Republic is proud to announce Wildblue Noir – an extension of the Wildblue fragrance collection that offers a deeply masculine and sensual night time experience for the modern dressed up man. Inspired by the darker side of an ocean wave, Wildblue Noir offers a crisp note on top with a slightly edgier feel blended underneath. The fragrance launches in Banana Republic stores worldwide this fall. Wildblue Noir pays tribute to the charismatic man, whose sense of adventure and polish unwittingly captivate his audience. He enjoys dressing up for an evening out on the town and meeting new people. He is bold and engaging, exuding confidence and charm with every move. Developed by renowned perfumer Jean-Claude Delville of Drom, the evening-inspired fragrance is rooted in deeper color palettes honoring the masculinity of the determined modern man. Delville continues his work with Banana Republic following his successful launches with the brand of Wildblue, Wildbloom, Classic, M and W scents. Wildblue Noir embodies seduction conveyed through radiant, woodsy sophistication, while shades of aquatic brilliance and herbs are offset by prominent spices for a distinct contrast. Finally, the nobility of musk is seduced by suede, creating an unexpected trail of elegance and mystery.
