    Default By Kilian Refill - Fill Level Question

    I bought my first By Kilian fragrance, getting the travel atomizer and the refill set of Straight to Heaven.

    It was sealed but the amount of juice wasn't full, there was a fair amount of air in the glass. The liquid went just a bit above the label, so I would estimate it as 80% full.

    Is this common? Did I receive 50 mls?

    Looking at photos of different Kilian refills online, it looks like there are some filled to the brim and some filled up to the label, so if you can share your experiences I would greatly appreciate it.

    One time i bought the refill of Cruel Intentions and it wasn't full, since i bought it at Saks i went back and ask if this was normal and the rep said that it was, but he filled the bottle to the brim anyway since i was at the store and they always have refill bottles with them.

    I'm pretty sure it's normal. They always leave some room (20%) in the refill containers to account for expansion, avoiding spillage (how would you pour if it were right to the top), etc. I've seen and opened quite a few of these and I recall there always being some buffer.

    Most of the time I am very proud of the Basenotes community. Time after time I have witnessed the thoughtfulness, empathy & genuine friendship that members of this community extend to others - oldtimers & newcomers alike. There are other times, however, when egos get the upper hand and civility goes out the window. My philosophy is that I won't say anything here that I would not say if you were standing in front of me. Welcome to Basenotes, each and every one of us. ~ TwoRoads

    That makes sense. Thanks for reassuring me!

    I don't know if I'll bother my SA with this, although the longevity is not the best!

    Thats exactly how it should be. Just above the top of the label!

    Yes it is normal. Same deal with a refill of Incense Oud... Lucky Scent measured it and confirmed it contained the full amount promised.

    Great! Thanks everyone!

    They really shouldn't show images online of it filled to the top! Even if they want to show off the colors of their scents!
