Refers to a refillable air freshener (ie the fragrance cartridge may be replaced when used up) but the word "refillable" will stand alone on package.

nachfüllbar


Explanation:
"Nachfüllbar" means refillable. This is normally written on German packaging.
The refiller package itself would be called "Nachfüllpackung", or, if it is a bottle "Nachfüllflasche".
