    The refills may not look as attractive as the original bottle. For example, the Armani Privé refills didn't have the black wooden box with "stone" cap.

    But if you don't care about the bottle's appearance, get the refill and pocket the difference.

    Valuable to whom, is the question? To a collector, it may be worth the difference. To me, no.

    I buy my atomizers for all uses from Accessories for Fragrances; they have an eBay store but I just buy from their online store.

    If there is a fragrance that I like that comes in a refill bottle, or even travel sized refills, will purchase the refill every time. I do not need to spend the extra $100.00 plus for the pretty packaging.

    This. For some people it's important and worth the difference.

    If the fragrance is definitely, only for your personal use, and not to be re-sold; then, I tend to agree with the above ^^^^^.
