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.

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

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 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 15:47:10


I was willing to pay a tenner for some.

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

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

Everyone I knew had white musk from the body shop.

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

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

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

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.

RayPurchase Wed 18-Dec-13 15:04:30

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

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

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

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....

craftynclothy Wed 18-Dec-13 15:00:31

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