    Default How much juice inside Allure Sport/Edition Blanche?

    Well it isn't the most important thing but something that bothers me

    I wanna find out how much juice is left inside these two bottles. I really can't tell how much is in there. All I know is that it's more than half full, judging by the weight, and that's all. I wanna use them accordingly, or sell them accordingly.

    Anyone know a way to tell?

    Ideally you would need a bottle of Chanel Allure Homme, the original clear bottle, of the same size, to use as a guide. Weigh it, weigh the opaque bottle then subtract and you are left with the weight of your bottle you are wanting to sell then you work the weight out as a percentage. I would also suggest removing the caps before you do this as the Allure Sport and Edition Blanche caps are heavier than the original one. I.e. if you had a half full 50ml Chanel Allure and your Allure sport was 25% heavier then you could be almost certain that there is 25% more juice.

    This would be my only suggestion. I did the same with Creed bottles to find out how much Himalaya I had left.

    ^^^Get the weight in grams and subtract. 1 ml=1 gram

    Put the bottles in the fridge for 15 to 30 minutes--enough to get the juice chilled. Take the bottles out, put them in a slightly humid atmosphere. At first, condensation will cover the whole bottle. Wipe them down, and watch as the bottles return to room temperature. The cooler juice will continue to form condensation, while the upper part of the bottle will be closer to room temperature, so it will not form condensation. The line of condensation on the bottle will tell you the level of the juice.

    Thanks tsuzumi, it does work. I put both the bottles in the fridge for about 30 min and took em out and put em on the desk. After about 10 min there was nice line just above the 'allure' on the bottle, meaning there is about 90% juice left. ... Thanks again.

I'd also suggest getting rid of the caps before you decide to do that because the Allure Sport and Edition Blanche caps weigh more compared to original one. I.e. should you have had one half full 50ml Chanel Allure as well as your Allure sport was 25% heavier then you may be almost sure that there's 25% more juice.

    Looks like it's designed to get somebody to click on the bogus-looking blogs in the profile. Links to those blogs have been spammed to a number of places. The blogs look like throwaways, but they don't look malicious to current antivirus - so if they have any browser exploits, they're pretty fresh. Maybe it's just a pay-for-click operation.

    More people being bratty on the interwebs.

    Yes - this is beautifully direct! It's an example of measuring almost exactly what you want to measure - the transition between the top of the fragrance and the vapor above it. What's wild is that all of us who refrigerate frags have seen this phenomenon, but I've never seen anybody connect it with this problem, nor did it ever occur to me, as I wiped off condensation dozens of times!!!

    Very interesting, Redneck. A different sort of spammer than we usually see.

    Yes - always something new with these guys. At least it's not heavy machinery advertising getting dropped in the Female Fragrance Discussion forum!

    There were some schemes a while back that made artificial, semi-on-topic, n00b posts - those had spam links in either the signature or the user's homepage listed in the profile. It looks like the spammers have pushed the camouflage technology a bit further, by taking a post and massaging it gently with synonyms. On a lightly traveled forum, it would probably go without discussion, but readers are pretty connected here, and it's more humorous.

    I'm always on the lookout for programming techniques - that's why I take a rather light-hearted interest in these things. I find the malicious use disappointing, but I'm a firm believer in the idea that all things can be turned to good!

    Anyway, back on topic, I would really like to hear how this new method of determining juice levels works for people. Nothing like reproducibility to make something solid. I have a feeling this could be the absolute best method for opaque bottles without paper labels.

    Thanks, bugsy! But I discovered that this method has some limitations! I tried it with a bottle of Black Jeans. The bottle is very uneven in thickness, with heavy embossed decorations on it. The glass warms up unevenly, so I never got a clear reading with this bottle.

    Unfortunately I have made the same discovery with my white bottle of Silver Mountain Water by CREED...the material doesn't attract condensation. I was about to do a search on basenotes now, do you have any recommendations?

    You can shine a bright light through it, you might think it's completely opaque but it's not. I've checked those before like this with my iphone light.

    It's amazing how certain people come up with such great ideas. It never would have dawned on me to test out a bottle that way. Thank you.
