    Default Help remembering perfume name from 80's-90's please!!

    Hi,
    A conversation today got me thinking about old perfumes I used to wear and it's driving me crazy trying to recall the name of one which was a favourite at the time.

    It had an Egyptian themed bottle like a long glass pointed bottom vial and came with a little brushed steel stand that I seem to think had hieroglyphic markings or wings etched on it. I can't recall the bottle top but recall there was something bright blue on it somewhere... I'm sure the name was something like 'Isos' or 'Izmir' or something like that but I've been right through all the 'I's' on the a-z and cannot find it (I might be totally wrong with that name though!).

    I loved this perfume back in 'the day' and wore it around the same time as I wore Casmir by Chopard which I believe was early 90's. I would be grateful if anyone could put me out of my misery as my brain is aching now trying to remember the name - arrghh!

    Could it be Talisman by Balenciaga?

    Talisman seems to fit the description perfectly.

    I love a good mystery! Was it Sculpture by Nikos? http://www.fragrantica.com/perfume/N...pture-924.html

    Wow, that photo looks exactly like the description in the first post.
    Perhaps the OP is remembering 2 perfumes and not just one.

    Would be very surprised if it isn't the one.

    Wow thank you so much everyone - it was Sculpture by Nikos - no idea where I was getting 'Isos' from! And I'm amazed it appears you can still buy it... I may need to get some, I'm sure one sniff would have me back to being 23 again... (if only!)
    Thank you!

    That's exactly what I thought when I read the description
