It's driving me mad that I can't find any trace of it on the internet.

I think it was called Forever, although I'm starting to doubt myself on that. It was what I call a chemist perfume (cheap!), possibly by Coty. I think it was in a purple box and bottle, the bottle had a sort of arch-shaped lid I think. It was around at the same time as Exclamation and Tribe, but can't have been as popular.

I just need confirmation of its existence.

Exclamation - now there's a blast from the past.

Is this the one you're looking for - dark vanilla?

kelper Wed 18-Dec-13 13:49:25

Oh my goodness I loved tribe! Serious blast from the past! I can vaguely recall the one you're talking about though

ShatnersBassoon Wed 18-Dec-13 14:53:31

No, not that one. I've been Googling like a mad thing and must have looked at every perfume bottle ever produced, but can't find any trace of it. It existed, it was fairly widely available, it just hasn't been recorded anywhere.

What sort of smell? Flowery? Musky? Spicy? Lemony?

I loved Le Jardin & Le Jardin D'Amour

I had a set of little sampler bottles from Boots one Xmas - felt so grown up.

VerySmallSqueak Wed 18-Dec-13 14:56:50

There was a gorgeous one from Avon,I believe in a purple bottle,though not sure,called Night Musk.

ChestnutsroastingintheFireligh Wed 18-Dec-13 14:57:25

Night Musk was lovely.

Was it in a bottle a bit like this My mum had a cheap 'copy' of this n a purple box

VerySmallSqueak Wed 18-Dec-13 15:00:33

Poison was in a purple bottle but that was pricey.
Vanderbilt was one of my favourites - that's in a lilac box....

VerySmallSqueak Wed 18-Dec-13 15:01:42

Anyone else have Lou Lou?
I never worked out whether I liked it or not!

Forever by Yardley? Its discontinued now sad I had it when I was a kid.

gaggiagirl Wed 18-Dec-13 15:07:37

So...? Exclamation! Tribe

Ahhhhhh memories.

It wasn't So...? Was it?

I would love a bottle of tribe.

VerySmallSqueak Wed 18-Dec-13 15:13:08

I may have to ask a passing Santa if I can have some Vanderbilt.

OneLittleLady Wed 18-Dec-13 15:15:23

I'm pretty certain they sell Tribe in my local HoF outlet. I'm certain I've seen it in there among many other things I don't recognise

Everyone I knew had white musk from the body shop.

ProfondoRosso Wed 18-Dec-13 15:27:46

My mum used to wear Lou Lou, VerySmallSqueak. For that reason, I love the way it smells. She seemed very glamorous to me when I was wee! There's a pair of black 'silk' nylon pyjamas still lurking somewhere in parents' house with Lou Lou embroidered on them - DM got them free with the perfume! grin

cloudskitchen Wed 18-Dec-13 15:33:22

Theres an Avon one on ebay called bond girl forever. its in a purple bottle?

gaggiagirl Wed 18-Dec-13 15:47:10


I was willing to pay a tenner for some.

OneLittleLady Wed 18-Dec-13 15:48:50

gaggiagirl I could look in the shop I'm sure sells it here for you after christmas if you want? I would go before but I just don't have time. I'm willing to go look after though.

gaggiagirl Wed 18-Dec-13 16:15:37

Thank you one that's really kind of you. I've waited this long, I can wait til after Xmas. Thank you!

Can you believe that price? Its hardly a vintage guerlain is it. Its bloody 20 year old coty!

OneLittleLady Wed 18-Dec-13 16:19:04

Drop me a Pm gaggia so I don't forget your name when I go for a look. Will report back after christmas!

cosikitty Wed 18-Dec-13 16:26:23 This is the Yardley one.
