    Default By Kilian's Refills - but I don't have an original bottle

    Hi there everyone. Let me preface this by saying that I did search the forum before initiating a new thread. I just didn't find an answer. My question is this - Luckyscent says you can only buy a refill By Kilian fragrance (at half the cost) if you have an original bottle (which I don't). Is there something stopping me from buying a refill? Can you only access the juice if you have an original bottle to discharge it into or something? Or do you have to tell them the serial number of your original bottle for them to ship you a refill bottle? I ask because I don't want to be embarassed when I try and order a refill bottle and they shoot me down. Thanks in advance guys (gals).

    You have to actually send an empty bottle to them to refill

    I just buy the 1 oz refill set (4 - .25oz bottles) for $70, and pour them into my own atomizer.

    What of the purse/pocket atomiser of By Killian? I was too impoverished to dish up for the full bottle and bought the mini. Does that mean I must *send* the very heavy and tiny atomiser to get the four small refills for $75? Gadzooks--that little thing feels like a lead brick...

    No, you can get those 4x.25oz refills as they are (I got just those refills vials of Love for the GF... that's what Petruccijc is referring to), same as the much larger ~100ml (I think) refill canister. The OP was referring to the standard 50ml/1.7oz refill most Kilian retailers offer (that they were offering before the travel bottle or large refill canister).

    I thought you could buy the refill just like buying a full bottle. At least that is how I understood By Kilian website.

    To be honest, I was thinking myself of buying a refill and just putting some on my travel atomizer.

    Yes, you can. This thread is 5 1/2 years old, so obviously things have changed since then.

    Not only that, but the refills that you can buy from By Kilian or any store that sells the brand now include a 7.5 ml travel atomizer in the box.

    They are designed to be a drop-in replacement vial for the travel sprays, but they can also be used on their own. A fresh replacement atomizer pump for full bottles is now included as well.
