Article 9 – Delivery
The Products ordered by the Customer will be delivered in Europe.
The delivery is constituted by the transfer of the physical possession of the Product(s) to the Customer. Except under special circumstances, or in the case of the unavailability of one or more Products, the Products ordered will be delivered at the same time.
The Vendor undertakes to use all the means in its possession to deliver the products ordered by the Customer within the deadlines mentioned by way of indication, but cannot be held responsible for any delay.
In particular, the Customer acknowledges that, due to the period of health crisis known as Covid-19, the estimated delivery times may be subject to significant delays entirely beyond the control of the Vendor and therefore linked to a force majeure event as defined in Article 13. The Vendor also cannot be held responsible for this delay.
If the ordered Products have not been delivered, for any other reason than force majeure or the fault of the Customer, the sale may be cancelled at the written request of the Customer. The amount paid by the Customer will then be refunded within fourteen days, at the latest, after the contract termination date, with the exception of any compensation or deduction.
Deliveries are made by an independent carrier, to the address given by the Customer when the order is placed which may be easily accessed by the carrier.
The Customer must check the condition of the delivered Products. He/Sheis entitled to make claims, within a maximum of 5 (FIVE) working days from receipt of the order, by e-mail, supported by all relevant documents.
In the event of defects, the Vendor will refund or replace as soon as possible and at its own expense, the delivered Products whose defects of conformity or apparent or hidden defects will have been duly proved by the Customer, under the conditions provided for by the French Consumer Code and those provided for in the present GTCSU.
The transfer of risk of loss and deterioration of Products is only applicable when the Customer physically takes possession of the Products. The Products are therefore sent at the risk and peril of the Vendor.
In the event that the delivery is unsuccessful, and the package is returned to the Vendor's premises, two solutions are set out: the Vendor will refund the order, except for the shipping costs, or the Vendor will make a new shipment after invoicing the new shipping costs to the Customer.

The transfer of ownership of the Vendor's Products to the Customer will be made only after full payment by the latter, and regardless of the date of delivery of those Products.

However, in accordance with the provisions of Article L. 221-28 paragraph 5 of the Consumer Code, the Customer will not be able to exercise his/her right to withdrawal from the contract and, consequently, return the Products, when the said delivered Products have been unsealed by the Customer after delivery, and therefore cannot be returned for reasons of hygiene or health protection.
In addition, personalized Products cannot be refunded or exchanged.
In the event of a valid exercise of this right by the Customer, the Vendor will refund the latter the amounts paid by him corresponding to the acquisition of the returned Product(s), within a maximum period of fourteen days, according to the method of payment used at the time of purchase.
This period of fourteen days will begin on the day of receipt of the Product(s) in perfect condition and regularly packaged.
The refund will be made via the means of payment used by the Customer when ordering or any other means chosen by the Vendor, namely by bank transfer.
The return costs are borne by the Customer. It is specified that the latter will also assume full responsibility for this return, it being specified that perfumes are considered, in terms of transport, as dangerous products.
