Why is my fragrance bottle not filled all the up to the very top?
Imagine two jars – one filled with fluffy cotton candy and the other with gold marbles. Both jars might look full, but their weights would be dramatically different. Similarly, while two fragrance bottles might seem similarly filled, their weights can differ because of the density of the specific fragrance.
Not All Liquids Weigh the Same: Picture honey and water. A cup of honey weighs more than a cup of water. This is because honey is denser. The same goes for fragrances. Some are denser and might not fill the bottle to the brim, even if they meet the weight requirement. Don't judge a fragrance by its cover... or its fill line! It's what's inside (and its weight) that counts. So, next time you see a bottle not filled to the top, just remember – it's the essence, not the volume, that brings the magic!
