    Default Buying refills from The Different Company

    There is a significant saving if one purchases the refill 100ml bottle as opposed to going with the full presentation.

    Im leaning towards getting the refill and just decanting it into a nice glass bottle....I could purchase a new one like splitters do, or
    clean out one of my empty bottles.

    No one sees these bottles but me so I don't care if I don't have a TDC branded bottle. (altho they are substantial and elegant).

    Has anyone gone the refill only route with TDC?

    Never tried any of theirs. Which ones would you suggest?

    Sorry for kind of off-topic. Your plan sounds like a sound one.

    Have never purchased a refill only a regular bottle, but I have seen them on their site.

    I have never gone with the refill bottles for TDC, but I usually do with Kilian. I like the refill bottles better, since they are easier to put into my own atomizers, which I do with everything in my collection anyway.

    I recently got a sample of Adjatay Cuir Narcotique and was blown away. It's a must -have for me.
    A very sensual leather and tuberose offering....sillage and projection all very strong for me.
    The 100ml full presentation with all bells and whistles is 177 euro on their site...the refill100ml bottle is 107 euro....so 70 euro for a bottle basically.

    Once the VAT gets removed the price of the refill drops to 89 euro...plus 21 euro for shipping.

    To me this is very good value from the house of elena.

    Adjatay is on my shortlist for sampling with the refill bottle in mind if I happen to like it enough.

    Wow! Never knew they had refills. Thanks for the info. I’m interested in some of their offerings.

    I don't have any experience with TDC, but I don't think there's anything wrong with just going for the refills. I used to always want the full bottles, but as I acquire more, it makes less sense. I mean, even my most worn bottle is six years old and only halfway empty. I've definitely got my eye on travel sprays or refills from Ex Nihilo and By Kilian because they're much more reasonably priced. Damn, I would love that Ex Nihilo bottle, though...

    Every time I have the choice. By Kilian offers refill bottles too, so I buy those.

    The presentation is nice but I'm after the juice.
