Do YOU remember this perfume (ca. 2005)?!

Something about not being able to travel much over the past couple of years has made me seek escapism through... perfume! I've gone mad for it. I've got together quite a little collection now and am missing one I used to have, but I can't remember the name of it.

The facts:
I bought it in about 2004/5.
It wasn't expensive, just an impulse buy somewhere like Superdrug.
It had a red glass bottle, like a lopsided/squashed cube (?).
I'm no olfactory expert, but something deep in the mix reminded me of chocolate.

??????????

I have trawled the internet, including Fragrantica, looking for clues, but so far drew a blank and I wondered if anyone here could help!

Although goggle tells me it's £££ these days, but I'm not sure it always was.

Kenzo?

Ignore that. Kendo was lopsided but not cubed

Gosh, thank you so much all for your suggestions!

I think some of these are in a pricier bracket than mine was. I'm a bit of a cheapskate, and I doubt I paid more than £15/20 for it.

It wasn't themed to a celebrity name or anything like that.

Also it wasn't a proper cube-shaped bottle, it was sort of square-ish but squashed/lopsided... or at least, I think it was!!!

I can't even remember the manufacturer! I've trawled through lists of perfume brands and not seen anything to jog my lousy memory...

Can you draw it as that might explain the shape better.

Hugo Boss did a red one can’t remember the name but in a red glass cube

@BleuJay

I think it would be misleading for me to draw it, since I can't trust my memory! let's say not a cube, forget that... but a bottle that definitely has four corners, rather than a rounded shape, if that makes sense.

Although I am now beginning to wonder...!

? Has Cacau in it.

Alcemeg Mon 06-Dec-21 09:46:48

Aaaagggh thank you for trying! Still a no...

It was a darker red than that. More of a burgundy colour.

Also ignore me with my "it had a note of chocolate in it" -- I could be talking out of my arse. That's just what I used to think when I used it.

Hugo boss have Deep Red which is in a red bottle.

Gucci also used to have one that was literally a red cube/box. Thing it was Rush? It was my friend's favourite perfume and she definitely got it from Super drug!

Lots of the celeb ones were popular then, was it Beyoncé heat? It’s in a burgundy coloured bottle.

Oh god, I think I know the one you mean! A boyfriend bought it for me and I didn't particularly like it, but had the bottle on my bathroom shelf for years...
It was one of the slightly lesser known brands and it is driving me mad that I can't remember it
Off to google again...
