Hi all together !
Today I have a little time to let you know what’s in my miracle database. [Big Grin]
As I started to collect solid perfumes in spring 2000 I started to build up a solid perfume database and it’s growing weekly .
For every company I made a separate file and for every solid made by this company I made a file too.
I picked the pictures and discriptions from ebay auctions websites and so on and at the moment it is one cd full with more than 480 MB. [New Laugh]
I have send one page to Lisa and maybe she can add the complete site [Confused] that you can see what I’m talking about.
A lot of solids are shown with there boxes and so it’s easy for me to control what’s wrong or right with some auctions. I have added some prototypes too. Most solids if shown with there boxes are presented with there correct name – some I have named like they look at.
My database is changing from time to time with updates when I find better discriptions or better pictures to make it more perfect.
For the Estee Lauder files I added the date of produce too and some of them are shown with different boxes.

Hi Ann !
It’s nice to see the solids from Myrna Pons – I had no idea that they are made some.
I think I had to add them too and the St. John`s –from St. John I have only one [Big Grin] .

Hi everyone.....Roselyn Gerson's book called "Purse Accessories" includes Lipsticks, Mirrors and SOLID PERFUMES.....just about 1/2 of the book is dedicated to solid perfumes listings many, many solid perfume containers by many different companies including: Amway, Avon, Blair, Blanchard, Boots, Carolee, Charles Revson, Cold Corday, Coty, Donna Karan, Faberge, Fuller Brush, Givenchy, Goldette, Guy Laroche, Harriet Hubbard Ayer, Hazel Bishop, Helena Rubenstein, Hermes, Jean Desprez, JPG, Lancome, Lilly Dache, Matchebelli...... (Vanda, Viviane Woodward, Watkins, YSL, Borghese, Revlon, Hudnut....there are too many to list here.....this is a sample...

I have been collecting solid perfumes (including Estee's) for a long time now and have quite a few (maybe 100 or so) different ones. They are all lovely little works of art.

Anyway, the book is wonderful...it is officially called Vintage Contemporary Purse Accessories Identification & Value Guide by Roselyn Gerson! ISBN # 0-89145-790-9 and it has 223 pages and is of course a wonderful book by Roselyn.

Hope this helps......take care, Pancho

Hi Michaela,

If you took the photos from ebay auctions and other websites I don't think Lisa can use them on her site because of copyright laws. You can use them only if you have permission of the person that took and owns the photo.

Also it is illegal to sell them or even give them away if you don't have permission from the owner of the original photo . It is an infringment of the copyright law.

I am sure you are unaware of this and we would not want you to get in hot water.

Ann & Ken

Hi Ann !
Thanks for this hint. It's better I don't burn them for money [Big Grin] . I only want to help and wanted to show how many beautiful solids are available. Some are very excellent workmanship and you know too not so exspensive than the Lauder ones.

Greetings !
