    Default Jalaine's refill bottle

    This doesn't seem quite worthy of a whole thread, but dang it, I have questions and I want answers!

    My Jalaine's Patchouli refill bottle is low and I need to reorder. That refill bottle was nice-- very cute, and easy to open. But not oil proof, which I found out the hard way, since the little plastic stopper/dipstick wouldn't go back in once I took it out. I loooove the heavy color-flashing crystal flacon on my Jalaine's Gardenia, but I have to say one is enough to satisfy me, and I don't want to spend money on another.

    Do others of you have one of these refill bottles of Jalaine's? Did your stopper go back in easily? Do you think I could punch a perfect circle out of the cap liner of my Wesson oil and insert it into the top and make it oil proof without the stopper?

    Sigh....my life is so difficult.
    Please, spritz responsibly.

    I have it, Shycat, and I will say that I have to tease it back in gently yet firmly, asserting dominance as its master in order to get it to go back in, but back in it does go.

    Are you quite sure that yours simply won't go back?
    "Like a lobster with a pearl in its claw, the beet held the jasmine firmly without crushing or obscuring it. Beet lifted jasmine, the way a bullnecked partner lifts a ballerina, and the pair came on stage on citron's fluty cue. As if jasmine were a collection of beautiful paintings, beet hung it in the galleries of the nose, insured it against fire or theft, threw a party to celebrate it. Citron mailed the invitations."

    I've about finished this bottle, but early on I threw the stopper away in a fit of frustration. I'm glad, I guess, to know that it's not just me.

    And have you noticed how hard it is to find attractive uniforms for the chauffeuring staff nowadays? Oh, and don't get me started on the abysmal selection of caviar spoons!
