    Default Is it possible to "refill" a bottle?

    I've been wondering, let's say i have a regular retail bottle with a CRIMPED on cap and an atomizer. Is it possible to somehow "refill" the bottle? any ideas?

    for example, I have a large decant and want to add it to my half used bottle, can it be done? Maybe with a needle+syringe?

    With the crimped tops, I wouldn't want to risk damage and/or loosen the seal and deal with evaporation. I understand not wanting wardrobe redundancy, but it might be best just to hurry up and use the decant up so the bottle can stand alone in its glory!

    Ive done it a few times with the cheaper frags like Old Spice - OS Signature. I accidentally bought the aftershave type bottle without the spray head. I pried off the spray top from an empty OS bottle and used pliers to remove the inner plastic seal then filled the bottle. I then laid a thin bead of hot glue around the top perimeter and replaced the components. I don't see this working on more expensive bottles, I'm looking over my expensive bottles right now and don't see a way to properly reseal them after a refill using the "attack" and rip open method. If the bottle has an old-school atomizer then you should be able to just unscrew the top and possible unscrew a barrel enclosing an interior cylinder. After refilling replacing these items properly and securely should reseal the bottle.
