    I've just been to EL counter today and asked when they would release 2005 solids in Japan. They told me that the exact date has not been determined yet, but sometime around in the middle of November, as usual. (Can't wait…!)

    They are going to release those J.Strongwater's and Neiman Marcus' solids. They showed me the solids catalog…I swear I had not worn any sunglasses, but I saw a GREEN DRAGON on PALE BLUE CLOUD. GOLD and DARK BLUE VASE(POT? JAR?). /blink.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’blink.gif’ />

    Does anyone know about these???

    Don't know anything of a green dragon but maybe it's the International version <img src='style_emoticons//unsure.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’unsure.gif’ />

    The blue bottle is called the White Linen Bejeweled Bottle and is an EL design, it retails for $200 and is available only at NM in Dallas in Houston (the stores having the compact museum)

    Yes, it was exactly this one! Thanks, Lisa. Now I wonder where to open this compact…??

    Catherine, the catalog BA showed me is 'EL confidential' (that's what she said), so I had no chance to take a copy or a photo of it. But I'll try to show you when they are ready.

    Lisa,

    Is the White Line Bejeweled Bottle a new release? I haven't heard of it. I live in the Dallas area. I may have to take a little drive over to Dallas. <img src='style_emoticons//cool.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’cool.gif’ />

    So the deal is the solids will be available only when the compact museum is set up (only Dallas & Houston, TX) the date for the museum is sometime in November I am told. I am told the solid is not available for reorder but don't know if I believe quantities are truly limited (we all hear this every year) <img src='style_emoticons//tongue.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’tongue.gif’ />

    If you are interested please call JANET, who is the EL rep in Houston, TX. Janet can be reached at:
    1-800-397-5293 or (713)621-7100

    Presales are being taken now and Janet is in today for anyone interested.

    I did order this one with the hopes that it truly is limited and hope it is a relatively small bottle. I like this one from the photo.
    *for anyone overseas interested in reserving one of these solids please email me.

    Lisa,

    Do you have any contact numbers and/or salespeople for the Dallas Neimans? Also do you know when these show are going to be in Dallas and Houston?

    THANK YOU, Lisa!! I've got mine preordered! It looks stunning in the pictures. I think it will be beautiful when I actually see it!! <img src='style_emoticons//wub.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’wub.gif’ />

    The Nieman Marcus in Dallas (North Park) can be reached at 214-363-8311 or 800-756-5784. Ask for Glenda. She is the EL Manager and is very helpful. They only have 50 pieces of the White Linen Bejeweled Bottle coming in, so it is very limited. She is taking preorders. She also told me that the compact museum would be coming to NM Dallas (NorthPark) on October 12th and Bob Conte would be there available to sign solids.

    I told her that I would pass along the info and to expect more phone calls. <img src='style_emoticons//biggrin.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’biggrin.gif’ /> She said that would be great!! So give her a call!

    Is the blue bottle a solid? How does it open? Donna

    Yes Donna, the blue bottle is a solid perfume compact. I am guessing the bottle splits in half like the Youth Dew bottle solid perfume but not sure <img src='style_emoticons//huh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’huh.gif’ />

    If you look very closely at the picture, you can see a line that runs along the flat gold top above the line of crystals. I would bet that it opens up like the “Romantic Moments”….hinged at the base with the magnet just below the topper. So the solid sits in the belly of the bottle, which splits in half to reveal the solid. Did I describe that okay or just confuse you more? <img src='style_emoticons//unsure.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’unsure.gif’ />

    I was just thinking….this GREEN dragon that's got us all curious and hopeful…is it like the ORANGE Radiant Fish that we were talking about earlier this year? Remember, there were pictures turning up overseas of an ORANGE Radiant Fish, but all the Fish that we saw and purchased were BLUE! <img src='style_emoticons//wacko.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’wacko.gif’ />

    I'm not sure I trust the flyers or the catalogs anymore. They had a beautiful Flowering Flacon in their pictures, but we all ended up with one with the flowers on backwards!!! <img src='style_emoticons//mad.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’mad.gif’ />

    I'll believe a GREEN dragon when I see one!! <img src='style_emoticons//blink.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’blink.gif’ /> <img src='style_emoticons//wink.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’wink.gif’ />

    This bottle solid is very pretty. I will buy it eventually.

    I'm not going to make a mad dash to Houston Galleria to buy it right away because….

    this “limited” situation reminds me of the American Apple solid a few years ago. I don't remember if it was the Dallas convention or Dallas NM….they said it was limited to only 50. Remember what happened? A few months later, NM got plenty of them. The apple was below retail on ebay within a year afterwards! Also, they had some at the CS.
