Solid Perfume Convention
Posted 26 July 2008 - 11:10 AM
Sorry no pic's, I left my camera in the hotel room and had to use hubbies old fashioned one.....
Yes we sure brought the sun home with us, I never thought I would say this but I'm a little fed up with it......it was about 107deg in Vegas every day..... just a tad warm for my liking.

Let me know what you think of the Cathedral when you get it. I have never liked the buildings solids ( only the old Harrods Palace ).
You should get the Cathedral soon as I am sure that I saw it in Neimans ( Las Vegas )

Did you see the beehive in Las Vegas? If you did, what do you
think of it?

I saw the new Beehive ( All the Buzz ) I think they are ment to be bees on it but to me they looked more like wasps, it had a sort of cartoonish look about it. I'm sure a lot of collectors will like it......but not for me.....The little Prancing Pony was much nicer for $50 more.

I too check out Ruby Lane most weeks, they do get some good compacts both Estee Lauder and the older ones. They are always quiet expensive but on the whole most of them seem to be in really tip top condition.
Sorry you missed the 2001 bear ( Is'nt it the one everybody wants )
Its a good place to check for it as there as a few British sellers on Ruby Lane and I would think that is why the Harrods ones show up.

Thanks for your opinion on All the Buzz. My SA at the Las Vegas store sent me
the photos of the new solids and I'd like to buy one of the "expensive" ones.
I've always been attracted to the Jay Strongwater solids and I see he designed the
Prancing Pony also. It's a hard decision....

1) Did EL give away any free solid perfume compacts in their goody/gift bag like they have done in the past? If they did, what were they this year? Maybe there wasn't a goody bag this year for attendees---yes, no??
2) Did anyone from EL mention why there is not an exclusive Las Vegas solid perfume compact for this year?
I'm just curious that's all. Thanks.

Yes we all got a goody bag. Most people like me got the Golden Soiree Powder Compact. Last year at the Rhode Island convention I was given the Sydney Opera House solid ( over the moon with that one ) Still I am always grateful for anything that is given me free. I never opened it until the event was over as I was to busy looking at the new solids and making my mind up what to buy.....
I did ask about this years Vegas exclusive but know one seemed to know ( or if they do they are keeping very quiet about it ) I am wondering if they are bringing one out later this year, perhaps for the Christmas/ Holiday season.....we will have to wait and see.
Kind regards to you......Margaret
