Most Favourite - love the tea party series - petit four, tea cup and teapot (but dont have them!) and the black cat on a pillow.
Least Favourite - maybe some of the animal series?
From Adelaide in South Australia
Have only been collecting for 6 months (but looking for years! ) so only have about 10 solids, several of which are powder compacts!

Lisa,
very good question to know eachother, but the first one very difficult to reply!!!

My most favorite solid: however I would say Precious bird, Ferris wheel, Guilded stagecoach and TajMahal (this last remembering me my trip there)

Least favorite: the sphinx and the picnic basket

I am from: Milan, Italy

Number of solids in my collection: 82 Lauder solids (plus 1 Corday and 1 Lempicka solid) up to now (+ 4 Lauder solids reserved and waiting to receive them after vacation) and about 1450 perfum miniatures which at present are for sale. After vacation Iíll try to create a personal site where to put all photos (solids, perfum and also my flowers photo.

Collector for (years): started in 1994 with one or two solids per year, but dizzy increased since 2002 after knowing Lisasite.

laugh.gif Wow!! It's fun reading these and seeing all the different 'tastes'!!

My most favorite solid: The Carousel (not only because of it's 'exquisiteness', but also because it was just so damn hard to get!!) smile.gif

Least favorite: Difficult, but I would have to say the Octopus sad.gif

I am from: Sydney, Australia cool.gif

Number of solids in my collection to date: 16 of my own, but my mother's collection is about 50 strong (as I give her a solid at least 3 times a year since she got me interested)

Collector for (years): me - since I joined this site, my mother since about 1995!

PS: ribbitdenver , We had the same wedding theme song "Rhapsody on a Theme" by Paganini. My husband and I were able to visit and have brunch at The Grand Hotel a few years ago. I too have many solids that relate to our traveling and bring back fond memories when I see them. Coming thru a Texas airport at a security check, the guards wanted to inspect my Cinderella Coach box. I don't know what it looked like on their xray machine. They took it out to inspect and seeing the price on the bottom seemed very taken back. I don't believe they had ever seen a solid perfume before.

My most favorite solid: "Yorkie"
Least favorite: "Bubbly" (yellow ice problem)
I am from: Tampa, Florida
Number of solids in my collection: 37

I first saw the yorkie in 1995, loved it because of my now 14 yr old yorkie.
I immediately threw away the box, and used the perfume!!
