So, does Macy's refill perfume bottles?

On Dec. 27, 2023, a woman took to X (formerly known as Twitter) and tweeted, "I did not know that you can take your empty perfume or cologne bottle to Macy's, and they will refill it for $27.00." The post has since gone viral, racking up 16.9 million views and over 700 replies, with folks scratching their heads over this scented revelation.

Luckily, eagle-eyed readers soon eventually uncovered the truth behind the tweet. It turns out that Macy's does have a refillable perfume bottle, but the price tag dances between $30 and $135. However, not every perfume bottle gets the refill treatment, so it's a good idea to call Macy's and pop the question before making any ~scentsational~ plans.

Jamaika took her followers on a stroll around the store, debunking the refill myth. She did, however, point out that the Mugler fountain gets the refill treatment, but other bottles are left to their own aromatic devices. With that said, if you were planning to make a pit stop at Macy's to refill your fragrance, you might want to rethink that strategy!
