- If your order contained perfume samples, please make sure to remove the initial waybill and all stickers, as they indicate that the parcel contains Dangerous Goods. The samples are a complementary gift to your purchase and they cannot be returned.
When returning items to us, please ensure they are in a new, unworn, unused, undamaged condition, well packaged in their original packaging (carton box, shoe box, dust bags etc.) and protected. When trying on shoes, please be mindful not to scratch the soles or mark the shoe box. Please try on your shoes on a carpet or similar platform, as our soles are very delicate and can be scratched easily. Returns must also include the dust bag and box, as these are considered part of the product. Please place the shoe box inside another box in order to prevent damage during shipping. Items that do not meet our policy will not be accepted and will be sent back to you.
If your order includes two complementary perfume samples, please note that when arranging your return you will have to remove the initial waybill and all stickers, otherwise the parcel will be returned to you. Kindly note that the perfume samples are not returnable.
