I feel it is best to have the box and white outer box when ever possible, however it is hard to find the box with the vintage solids. For now I am buying the vintage ones without the box and hope to someday replace it with one that I find in a box. Best way to judge the value is to watch how frequently it shows up on ebay, this is why I felt it necessay to add the "solid values" to the site. Day by day this will become a very valuable resource to chart the price, when it sold and how many times it has come up for auction.
The drops of Intuition were solids exclusive to Harrods in London. Yes, I would consider them to be valuable because they are no longer being produced and that they weren't offered in the US or other places.

I will only buy vintage solids or powders without a box - but they have to be in almost perfect or perfect condition for me. I figure that they are the ones worth having in my collection since all of the others I have come with both inner and outer boxes and have never been used. I save all the boxes in large bins in my storage area at home. The bins have lids so they do not get damaged. My curio cabinet is in the cooler area of my home and not in direct sunlight. I have found some older compacts and solids with boxes and I display them right in my curio in their box. If I find a solid or compact that I don't have I will not purchase it if it has been used or it is not in great shape. I figure I will wait until another that is in better shape comes along. Hope this Helps!

just wanted to let you know that the Intuition solids were not Harrod's exclusives but sold in all Perfume Shops in Switzerland too and as far as I know also in Australia, but they were not sold in the US.
I wish you a wonderful day

Do you have Roselyn Gerson's book? It is a great reference for prices and photos of the actual solids.
The solids hit the store in July/August so best thing to do is get your order in A.S.A.P. they go so quick. I find most on mine on ebay but have found some at antique markets and yard sales.
It is hard to know prices but this is why I started the solid values page, you can type in what you are looking for and get an average of what it has been selling for on ebay and how many times it has come up for auction.
