Tribe Perfume

The very first perfume I ever owned was called Tribe, it launched back in 1991 and was the bottle that saw me through school, through friendships, breakups and a bottle that I have kept the entire time as a memento in a memory box I started to create many moons ago.  If you don't remember Tribe, it was the bright purple box with the even brighter pink writing and possibly the scent that everyone owned alongside The Bodyshop Dewberry and Impulse 02.  When it disappeared from sale in around 1997, I was gutted but I still had my original bottle - a bottle that has followed me through 6 house moves over the space of quite a few years!  But, it is now back on sale and I have got my hands on a bottle and I couldn't be more excited!

The outer box still looks very similar to the original but the main difference is the bottle.  Gone has the slightly twisted bottle design for something which is much sleeker and also gone is the bright blue and pink lid in favour of a gold version.  So whilst there have been some material changes, I am thankful that the fragrance is just as I remembered it and that there have been no changes made.
Remember leotards leggings and crop tops. And prints and patterns in every conceivable colour, as long as it was bright!How about Cool Britannia and Britpop? Or was it the craze for fitness and dance that got you?What are your memories of the nineties?Now you can them back to life with Tribe® perfume!Or would you simply love to experience this memorable era with this iconic 90's perfume.Treat yourself this nostalgic yet up to date perfume - right here, right now.Tribe® fragrance has risen again!
Described as being alluring and addictive, Tribe is a fragrance which is designed to suit everyone whether you are someone who loves to reminisce about fragrances of your youth or whether you want to try something new. 

Tribe opens with quite the burst of a cocktail of juicy fruits and really packs a powerful punch and it has top notes of mandarin orange, raspberry, peach, apple, bergamot and lemon of which come together and really makes quite the impression. The middle notes of cyclamen, jasmine, lily-of-the-valley and rose to bring to life those floral notes which intertwine with the top fruit notes before the base notes of sandalwood, amber, musk, oakmoss and cedar which breakdown the top and middle notes and allow just a hint of peach to seep through. Many people put this fragrance in the Oriental Floral group.

As you can see from the photo above, the current bottle of Tribe versus my own bottle circa 1992 according to the notes in my memory box, so it is quite dated but there is still some perfume in the bottle and I did spray it against the newly re-released bottle and they are exactly the same scent.

Retailing for around £24 Tribe can be found in all kinds of stores ranging from Amazon, Allbeauty, Fragrance Direct and of course the Tribe website too.
