Photos Harrods 2005 Solids
Posted 04 August 2005 - 05:26 PM
One year they have solids beyond comparison and the next they have just average ones for limited editions. I think I will pass on all three this year . . . . I have no desire now to keep ones I don't really love just for the sake of it . . . .
OK, I may have to eat my words later when they reach a premium price and I have missed out!

I was speaking with Allison of Harrods today. She told me next year's exclusives would be the Double Decker bus and Big Ben. Sounds terrific!

But what about this year's solids?! How can they be promoting next years
and shouting their glory, when we haven't received 2005's yet!
Doesn't make sense, does it!
Sorry, no offence meant......but.............

Well, I'm happy to skip this year's and look forward to next year's!!
But likewise Jacky - why are they foghorning about next year prior to releasing this year's?? Sounds senseless to me too!

Sorry to advise that the bears have not yet arrived. Probably still enjoying
their picnic as we are experiencing the most unusual October weather. It
has been like late Spring.
Meanwhile I looked at the Sentry Guard! I will not be buying! The Bulldog
is nicer than I thought but I am not mad about his eyes! He is wearing a lovely little dog collar, bejewelled and his coat is not as dull as it appears in the
pictures. Definitely an improvement but still unsure as to what everyone
Lots of Strongwater solids there, but obviously these are different prices from the States.
The little pekinese dog on the cushion £175
Snowflake, little box, Reindeer, cameo (they are listed as £100)
Have the prices for the Strongwaters:
Brush with butterfly: £175
Flower on perfume bottle 175
Intuition Jewellery Box £175
White Linen dog on chair £200
White Cat on Chaise (I love this one) £200
Hope this helps.....
Can you answer this question for me: I was told that alot of people in the States are purchasing the Reindeer from here. Remember it is £100 and you get VAT off
My question: Is the Reindeer cheaper here then??????????? Over to you

At a glance, I seem to feel that the solids are costing more in the U.K. At the least I think the X'change rate is something like SGD3.00 to One British Pound.
I have the price list here of the solids sold in Singapore in case anyone would like to make a comparison... (all in Singapore Dollars )
Bejewelled Bottle $350
Romantic Moments $160
Golden Gift $150
Jay Strongwater :
Flowering Flacon $360
The X'change rate of Singapore Dollar to the USD is approx. S$1.68= USD1.00
Hope this helps too
Seems the Reindeer is cheaper here ??

The Reindeer is $80 over here. I don't know why anyone from the States would be buying it overseas, where it seems to be more expensive.

Catherine I thought it was somewhat weird to hear that orders were coming in from overseas for the Reindeer! And as you have said, the solid perfumes
other than the limited releases for Harrods, are much cheaper to buy from abroad.
Perhaps our European friends will be able to give us their prices soon. It is
interesting to see the price differentials and that means we all have a choice
as to where to purchase!

Harrods too! Will check out the price as I cannot remember asking about
it. I did think it would be on the list.... sorry!

Anyone follow that?

My guess is one stop shopping. You can order all the solids you want at the same time instead of going to multiple stores = saves time. I won't be doing that. If I buy the reindeer, I'll acquire it here in Houston or on ebay. Also, I don't remember about Harrods shipping/insurance prices....I think the more you spend, the higher ship/ins.

It is retailing here at £175.
