    Here is something nice to see and very interesting.
    OK here is the dish…..
    In the current October 2005 issue of a magazine called, Shop, Etc, which sells for $3.49 on the newsstands here in the US. (Sorry don't know if this womens magazine is available outside the US), there is a seven page article in the beauty section entitled, “Counter Intelligence”. Lo and behold on page 152 there is an article titled: “Heaven Scents: Estee Lauder”. It has a picture of a model touching her decollage and in her right hand is the 2005 Pleasures Boudoir Butterfly by Jay Stongwater. The compact is open. On the right side is a description of four Estee Lauder fragrance products and item #C reads and I quote,”Pleasures Boudoir Butterfly” $175 (.08 oz).

    Unforutantly, I do not want to get into a copyright battle with this magazine if I quote the sentence which describes this solid. Maybe Lisa you would know more about quoting a sentence and giving credit from a magazine, if that would be legal on this message board? However in my own words and thoughts, what that next sentence says is something about the fragrance, its a solid, limited edition, who the designer is and what brand of crystals is on the piece. That is it.

    In my opinion I think this is very good news for us collectors to get any kind of national publicity concerning solids and this article is well presented and photographed. There are two pictures that show this solid.

    I don't see any problem in quoting a short part of an article as long as it is attributed to them. Reprinting a whole areticle would be something we'd have to get permission for in advance.

    Thanks Jack. After I made my original post, I also did some reaserch and made a few phone calls. As long as I give credit, make quotations and not imply in any way I wrote this which I have made very clear I am not the author of this article, this should be fine. Sorry about not posting the picture but its those copyright rules. In the US, if a person really wants to see this page, they will have to buy the magazine.

    Below is the sentence taken from the October 2005 issue of Shop, Etc. magazine. This is taken from page 152 which is entitled and I quote, “Heaven Scents: Estee Lauder” which is a subtitle from the main article entitled, “Counter Intelligence”.

    I quote directly from this page,”C. “Pleasures Boudoir Butterfly,” $175 (.08) Like wearing a garden full of liles, this solid scent comes in a limited-edition Jay Strongwater-designed compact with Swarovski crystals.”

    Hi Gigi,
    I've never seen or heard of the mag, but that's a great commercial. Good find! <img src='style_emoticons//biggrin.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’biggrin.gif’ />

    Thanks for the info Gigi! I do think it is important for EL to do some advertising to attract new collectors like in the past- remember the beautiful brochures that featured the new solids? They were great but we don't see those anymore

    Come to think of it, I do remember those brochures Lisa and you are right they were great. Its too bad they were discontinued.

    KK, this magazine,”Shop, Etc” if I remember correctly has been out for around two years. Its a magazine of course about shopping. <img src='style_emoticons//biggrin.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’biggrin.gif’ /> It has three sections in it which talk about three subjects: fashion, home and beauty. So, many people may not know about it because it hasn't been around that long. Hope that helps KK and thanks.

    Thanks, Gigi.
