    Default By Kilian - the discontinuation of refills for travel sprayers.

    By Kilian recently email me back with some information. It has been confirmed now that the refills for the travel sprays are no longer in sale. It's a shame, since this was the cheapest way to get any By Kilian fragrance.

    I just thought that I should share the news with you guys!

    Bummer, bit crap if you've shelled out for the travel atomiser...
    Well, it's cheaper than therapy... edit: No it's not...

    That's unfortunate news. When I was purchasing Back to Black I decided on the 1.7oz bottle rather than the travel spray and refills but in the future I wanted to go the atomizer route, shame.

    These customers will have to go with the full bottles now.

    Not really, the choice of "50ml refill bottle" and "already filled travel sprays" are still left. But they are much pricier than the now discontinued cheap option.

    Can the people that already have the 10mL travel atomiser vials refill them with the 50mL refill bottles, or are the travel atomisers unrefillable now? Surely it's the former.

    Yes, they can be refilled.

    Wasn't price/ml the same on both refill amounts? Only difference is that you will have to buy 20 ml more but on the same price I think?

    Maybe too much of their sales were travel ones.

    I learned from By Kilian rep at Bergdorf that the 50 ml refill bottles will also contain a small vial with atomizer. Should begin shipping in April.

    The refill bottle I got recently had an atomizer and a metal funnel but no vial.

    Glad i didn't pick one for my Back to Black and instead opted for the refills only.

    So much for offering a cheaper alternative, as everyone originally thought...

    Why would they think that?
    The box was labeled travel sprays not cheaper alternative.

    They recently answered me back.

    "Dear ****


    We decided to stop selling them. It was not a best seller, so we decided to focus on best sellers instead.

    But you can still buy the 30ml travel set."


    So, they got rid of it because it didn't sell good enough... strange. I thought they did pretty good.

    I smell brown stuff...

    The travel sprayers had a detrimental effect on their profit margin. In other words, less people were buying full-bottles of their stuff, as the refills were just as good as buying decants. Obviously, they didn't foresee this happening, so pulled the plug.

    Greed once again and more lies...
