    Elly please don't forget me either! You will have to cut it up into little pieces…

    Thanks for your note on your other post. Hopefully will get back to normal
    soon! <img src='style_emoticons//huh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’huh.gif’ />

    I was going through my solids and saw that one of my Stuart Weitzman shoes from Nordstrom is yellow, the other is half yellow. I was heartbroken. I love that one. I had my receipt with them and I AM GOING TO TAKE THEM BACK TO NORDSTROM FOR A REFUND!
    I'll let you know what happens.

    I think you will find that many of these have turned yellowish. Are we talking about the same solid i.e. the clear princess pump. I have this one and it is
    also slightly yellowish….

    Have not had time to refer to my book, but think that is the one you mean??

    Yes, unfortunatley that's how they all look now! <img src='style_emoticons//sad.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’sad.gif’ /> Too bad because it's a fantastic solid.

    Yes, I meant the Princess Pump. We all know the 2000 bubbly is bad (I have 3) and I'm going to look for my receipts for them. But I am so disappointed the Princess Pump is affected too. It's one of my favorites. But it is now worth a lot less than the $150 it cost. We should not let EL get away with this. <img src='style_emoticons//mad.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’mad.gif’ /> I will be returning mime to Nordstrom next week sometime.

    The material used for frosted prototype Cat's Meow never yellowed!
    This would have looked great for Bubbly.
    I don't even display my Bubbly's anymore they are so yellow.
    One is without perfume but they are equally yellowed.
    My next experiment is to try and paint the yellow ice frosted looking on the empty one!!

    Hello Ar, I really don't think the price of the Princess Pump has gone down. It is a hard to find solid perfume and very desirable. I am sure if someone wants it you will not be disappointed with the price. I really wanted
    it and therefore paid what I was prepared to……It is all a question of demand Ar.
    Also, I doubt very much that EL would refund on solids that have been kept by
    us for a long, long time (even with a receipt)! If they do, I'll eat my hat……
    <img src='style_emoticons//blink.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’blink.gif’ /> now which one……..straw hat, Uncle Sam's hat, silver boater…..??????????

    Yeah, I'm surprised stores will let you return an item several years old! <img src='style_emoticons//ohmy.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’ohmy.gif’ /> Most American stores give you 30 days with receipt. I always return things per policy because I don't to be stuck with it! Its true that none of us would have known about solid color changes until long after that 30 days.

    Nordstroms appears to have liberal return policies, but I don't know if they take back 5 year old items. I especially don't know how they stay in business if they do! <img src='style_emoticons//huh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’huh.gif’ />

    Yeah – too right! I think there are such things as warranties and guarantees, so I suppose quality stores should only sell quality goods! That's why they the customer may have the right to return goods that are 'faulty', even after a fair time . . . . we'll see what happens!

    GOOD LUCK! <img src='style_emoticons//cool.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’cool.gif’ />

    I followed an auction on ebay and the Princess Pump was only selling for $155, and original price was $150. Since it's yellowed so much, I don't think it will appreciate greatly. Although one of my favorites, I took the two I had to the Estee Lauder counter at Nordstrom and got a full refund – however, I'm not sure they would have taken the return if the perfume had been used. And I had my receipt from 2002. I plan to do this with the champagne 2000 as well. I hope it sends a message to EL. I know this issue doesn't bother some people, but I want to let those collectors who are unhappy know they CAN do something about poor quality workmanship, even if it shows up years later.

    You are Right Margaret! Why should someone have to give up a Estee Lauder Perfume Solid because the manufacturer failed on their part. I believe they should have given Ar an appreciative price, after all you can't replace it for what you paid for it originally. I was lucky enough to get one on eBay over a year ago but if it yellows I won't be able to return it. So at least Ar you have some satisfaction that way.

    I know I have written this before, so excuse me for repeating myself. Here in the U.K. they will never accept the return of a Solid Perfume with or without the receipt! They quote hygienic reasons, the same way as they will not accept the return of make up products.

    So even if we have the receipts, we cannot do anything about it……

    Good Luck anyway!
