When I was about 17 1983/84 used to walk through Debenhams for a spray of this ! But can't remember it's name , it was quite a strong spicy kind of scent in a burgundy slim sort of angular bottle with a gold lid and I think some black vertical line on the bottle ? I can Remember Rive Gauche (sp) and Je Reviens being popular at the same time but can't find anything like this on google ! It's driving me mad

Why don’t you draw what the bottle looked like and upload it as a photo. Your description means nothing to me like that-too abstract.

Is it Tribe? That was a purple twisted bottle I think?

I posted a pic but it’s disappeared, google Tribe and see. It’s an old school popular scent

Not what op is looking for, I'm sure, but had to add because it's hilarious.

Elizabeth Taylor Passion? I had a Saturday job on the perfume counter in Boots in the 80's!

I used to love YSL Paris, loath it now so sweet!
