I need some help regarding the labels on the Estee Lauder solid perfumes.
Do ALL the solid boxes have a label (sticker) underneath?
Because I only collect them when they have a label.
But sometimes I'm not sure if they should have one.
For example ebay item # 5519028907. It has “Estee” stamped inside the lid, or ebay item #5519025511, which has “Azuree” stamped inside the lid.
When the names are stamped inside the lids, do they still carry a label??
Is there a general rule for this?????
I know there are a lot of experts watching this site. So if you experts read my question, please respond.
Thanks and have a great day.

Hi Maureen, To the best of my knowledge they had three different types of labels. The stick-on type, which went on the bottom or back of the solid, a little gold string with a tag attached and the necklaces, a tag attached to the string. If there are any other types, no doubt the other long-time Collectors will have more knowledge.
As a Collector , it is more desirable to have this sticker or tag, but if you love an older piece and it doesn't have it, I personally would not worry about it. We would all like every solid with it's individual box and label/tag, but sometimes, it is a very difficult proposition. I certainly wouldn't pass up on an older one just because it did not have the label. If anyone knows differently, please write. <img src='style_emoticons//wink.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’wink.gif’ />

Good question Maureen-
The ones I have that have the fragrance name stamped inside don't have tags.
The older necklaces that I have like the secret treasure and ginger jewel do have tags attached to the cords.
Sorry my answer doesn't help much.murveydjangoMemberSeptember 7, 2004 at 10:13 pmPost count: 11
Thanks so much for responding and for the helpful information!!!!! <img src='style_emoticons//smile.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’smile.gif’ />
When a solid is really rare and hard to get, you are right not to worry about the label.
But of course I would prefer the labelled ones.
Now I know they should all have one.
But if someone gave me -let's say- an Imperial Princess without a label, I wouldn't say no. <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ /> <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ /> <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ />
I haven't been on the site that much, but I do take a peek every day, and I love the site and when I have time I can gaze at the pictures for hours and hours.
Thanks again, and if other people reading this site have more ideas or information,
please let me know.
Bye bye, MaureenmurveydjangoMemberSeptember 7, 2004 at 10:26 pmPost count: 11
Thanks for the info!!!!
It is helpfull to me, because apparently you also take solids with no labels or stickers. And that is just what I wanted to know too, how the avid collector thinks about solids without labels.
Thanks and I enjoy your site every day!!!!
Bye Bye, Maureen <img src='style_emoticons//wink.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’wink.gif’ />
