Best 2004 Overall Group Of Solids
Posted 08 January 2005 - 11:39 AM
I am curious who get to decide the price of the solids in different country? How much is the Judith Leober selling in Europe?
Over here in Singapore, after conversion, we are getting almost the same price as US for the JL , however, the price of the Jay Strongwater and GD is much more expensive here.

Re your point about whether Harrods solids sell out faster because we know about the limited number,
a) I believe YES
We expect know they will be of the highest quality
I noticed that they still have some from last year. The London Taxi and the Phone Box.......these I did not purchase as they did not appeal to me at all. So the question remains, did they overproduce these two solids and as such the demand was not there or, was the design not so appealing? So we get back to the same question from Ron's post
and my feeling is:
Produce limited numbers of each solid and as Ann said, bring back the quality and keep the price affordable. That way EL and everyone else wins in the long run!
One point we have not considered is that not all those who buy these solid perfumes are collectors so I doubt if they care about how many are released. I wonder if EL's marketing has an idea of the numbers in this respect??

You are completely right. The price of the Taxi is 165 pounds?? I will top 10 pounds to get the English emblem without a second thought..

Yes, you did put that smiley in your post.
If you go back in and look at your post a B + ) is code for that particular smiley.

a) Price between Lieber's and Strongwater's and GD's
Price over quality or choosing one you really like.
c) Choice between buying limited editions or ones you like.
Most people's answer would be to buy them all!!
However for the investor, the limited editions would be the ones to go for, hence Harrod's ones selling out quickly this year. I don't think it has been such a big issue in the past two years though . . . . (correct me if I'm wrong!)
For the simple lover, the obvious choice would be just to buy the ones you like.
It's hard to know on the site who are 'investor's' and who are collector's and who are both! There are a lot of people on here who buy in multiples, thereby making it more difficult for others to by just one. This raises the price of the limited editions immediately and that's one thing I think Harrods understands. Limited editions will sell out quicker than the others. I reckon from this year's prices, next years Harrods ones will be much more expensive because they sold out so quickly!!
If you remember in the last couple of years since the 2001 bear which was limited in production because it was the first 'exclusive' year to Harrods solids (and now highly sought after), the next two years didn't go as well as they were plenty in supply, so now this year they were limited again and boy did they go!
We'd better be careful they aren't forced beyond our affordability!
The transport idea (vans and taxis) didn't seem to take off, so they have avoided it this year . . . . but wonder if they will attempt the double-decker next year?

Maybe I should have used numbers instead of letters!
So to avoid the confusion, the above debate is a, b, c, Not a,, c. Get it?

As long as the market is not flooded as if there were hundreds of the Imperial Princess would we love her so much? Or the Panda for that matter!
Keep them affordable, limited, and well made, and let us choose which ones to buy. All will be Winners!

Sandra - Would you mind repeating that last sentence?
Posted 10 January 2005 - 12:40 AM
Running way ahead of the pack is, of course, The Bustier...one knock-out solid for sure.
With very few exceptions, I'd say 2004 was a very, very good year for solids.
And Sandra...why didn't you say that the first time? I'd have understood!

Now am wondering what is in store for 2005! Just fishing!
