As a consumer, you have the right to cancel the Contract within 14 days without giving any reason.

Effects of cancellation
If you decide to cancel the Contract, we will refund all amounts paid except the cost of delivery to the original place of delivery as soon as possible and in any event within 14 days from the day we are notified of your decision to cancel the Contract.
The method of refund will be the same as the method of payment you used for the original transaction.
Regardless of the above, we may withhold the refund until we have received the returned products or until you have provided us with proof of the return of the products, whichever is earlier.
Please return the products in question without undue delay, and in any event within 14 days of notification of your decision to cancel this Contract as set out below. The time limit is met if you return the products to us before the expiry of the 14-day period.
You are only liable for any depreciation in the value of the products resulting from handling other than that necessary to ensure the nature, characteristics and functioning of the products.

In addition to the legal right of cancellation granted to consumers, mentioned in clause 16.1 above, you have the possibility to return any product to us within 30 days from the date of receipt of the order.
In case of return of products made under the contractual right of cancellation after expiry of the legal cancellation period, the refund will only cover the amount paid for these products.
Delivery costs will not be refunded.
16.3 Common provisions
Your right to cancel the Contract will only apply to products that are returned in the same condition as when you received them.
The products must be in their original undamaged condition, still with the safety film, and with any possible special packaging and accessories.
Incomplete, damaged, worn, opened, or altered items will not be accepted for return.
You are therefore requested to take good care of the product(s) in your possession. Please return the products using or including their original packaging, instructions and any other documents, if applicable, accompanying the product(s).

The return costs will also be refunded if the package was sent within 14 days of the return authorization.
Reimbursement will be made as soon as possible and, in any case, within 30 days from the date on which you informed us of your decision to cancel the Contract.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, we may postpone the refund until we have received the returned goods or until you have provided us with proof of the return of the goods, whichever is earlier. The method of refund will always be the same as the method of payment for your purchases.
Please note that, following the delivery of your order, in case you exercise your legal or contractual right of cancellation and if you are the one who organizes the transport of the returned products, and this without having recourse to the return service proposed by us, we will not be able to assume the risk linked to the return of the products when it results from causes not attributable to VILHELM PARFUMERIE.
You are also reminded that you are responsible for the contents of the packages.
In the event of an error in the contents of the returned package, not attributable to VILHELM PARFUMERIE, if it is possible to organize the return of the package to your attention, we will be able to make you bear the corresponding costs.
