Hi Karin – I do know what you mean about having the box, although 99% of the time I will only buy it if it has the box, not only to preserve future value, but the boxes themselves are pretty and provide the perfect storage container.

I also do not purchase them without the box for this reason – I cannot afford more than one of any given solid, and I know that if I purchase one without the box I will eventually come across the same solid with the box and feel I wasted $$ on the first one because I will just HAVE to buy the one with a box. If I could afford to have more than one of each solid, I probaby wouldn't mind the 2nd without a box and have it strictly to display.

Regarding the perfume, I agree that, to me anyway, without it it is just a box, not a solid perfume.

On a different note, I came across some solids on ebay that had the solid pictured with the box, but then at the bottom of the auction it stated that it was the solid only, no box, no perfume. Again, very misleading! <img src='style_emoticons//mad.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’mad.gif’ />
