    Default Issey Miyake L'eau D'issey not full upon arrival from FragNet

    My Issey Miyake L'eau D'issey came in this week from FragranceNet. It was sealed, brand new, with the wrapping on it. I opened it up, everything was fine, but after a while I noticed that it didn't appear to be at 100% in the bottle. Is this normal or should I contact FragNet about it?

    It's normal to have a little gap sometimes at the top.

    While it might be true that there is gap sometimes, I would suggest going to the department store with your bottle so you can compare it there, for your own peace of mind.

    ^Do actually you think the sales associate is going to let him open up a bottle so he can compare the juice level with the one he bought on fragrancenet?

    Have you tried spraying it? A small gap, as mentioned, isn't out of the ordinary, but if you tried spraying it and it worked from the first time you pressed down on the sprayer, then you might have cause to suspect it isn't new.

    It doesn't appear to be a problem however it may be a good idea to compare it next to another new bottle. You want to be sure that some of the juice has not evaporated meaning that air has gotten into the bottle. No a good thing.

    With a friendly smile or demeanor, yes. It's worth a try. Anyway, the point I was trying to make is to compare it with another new/like-new bottle, and the department store was just the first thing that came to mind.

    They could have it in a gift set. It would be easy to look at the new bottle that way.

    Now that I think back, the spritzer did have to be pressurized before use.... so that's probably enough evidence for me.

    yeah it's 3.4 oz

    the bottles arent always exactly 100ml in size, so there is sometimes extra room.
