Solid Perfume › Forums › General Discussions › Id Help? › Re: Id Help?
I have the gold tone round, covered with clear crystals and a cute bow in the middle also in clear crystals St. John compact. I too love it and agree it is the highest quality. Mine is appoximatly 2 14/16 inches in diameter. When you open it, there is a mirror on the top, a great metal gold tone cover which automatically comes open to protect the solid and the solid perfume which is the original St. John fragrance. I believe the fragrance is not wax based, but is in tightly packed powder form. There has not been any spreading from the sides like with age and Estee Lauder solids. Unfortunaly, I can't remember the year when these beauties were made. They were released in the fall for holiday gift giving. I bought mine at a Nordstrom store and saw them at various St. John boutiques around the country. I apologize for my memory loss on when these were made…I know it was in the 1990's and it was only one year they were produced. I do remember there were at least three designs made for sure…Kasi's black one, my round one and a sunflower one. Once again can't remember if there was a fourth one made or not. I do remember when I did go into several St. John boutiques here in the States almost a year later most still had some compacts left over from the previous year. Looking forward to Phyllis's and/or Bridgett's reply.
