Descriptions of fragrances

This site contains descriptions of fragrances. We recommend always that fragrance is experienced on an individual’s skin before a purchase is made, and we take no responsibility for any fragrance purchase that you are not happy with. This includes recommendations made by FR.eD, our ‘virtual fragrance advisor’; FR.eD’s suggestions do not replace trying a fragrance on the skin and making up your mind, before purchase.

If you take a link to another website, we are not responsible for any financial loss due to a third-party site failing to deliver goods or services provided by that site.

Allergy/sensitivity warning

Perfume is potentially allergenic. All samples contained within our Fragrance Education Discovery Boxes contain allergy information on their packaging. We cannot be held responsible for any allergies or sensitivity or injury arising from the use of fragrances provided by The Perfume Society. We do not recommend the wearing of perfumes of any kind in direct sunlight.

Flammability

Please be aware that fragrance is a flammable material. Always keep perfume bottles and samples well away from any naked flame. We cannot be held responsible for any fire resulting from products we have supplied.

Events

We organise regular events. We reserve the right to cancel events for any reason and cannot be held responsible for any travel expenses incurred in case of cancellation. We will endeavour to contact attendees in the event of cancellation but cannot offer any additional compensation over and above the refund of the ticket price.

Your order represents an offer to us to purchase a product or service and is subject to the following terms and conditions. Your order is accepted by us when we send email confirmation and/or a redirect to a webpage which provides details of how we have made that product or service available to you. That acceptance will be complete at the time we send the order confirmation email and/or web page redirect to you.

All orders are subject to availability and confirmation of the order price.

Where a contract is made with a third party we are not acting as either agent or principal and the contract is made between yourself and that third party and will be subject to the terms of sale which they supply you.

Each sample that is available on our website is posted with full consent of the brand owner or the distributing company in the UK. We have been granted distribution rights of these samples by the brands or distributors that provide them to us.

1.      Prices and Payment

If you are a new customer, you may receive a ‘free trial’ as part of your Subscription. When the free trial period finishes your Subscription will automatically continue at the price quoted on the Site during the sign-up process, unless you cancel in accordance with the instructions set out below before the end of the trial period.

You agree to pay the price at the rate notified to you at the time you take out your Subscription. We may modify the price of any Subscription, remove and/or offer certain other subscription services from time to time. We will always tell you in advance of any increase in the price of your Subscription and offer you an opportunity to cancel it if you do not wish to pay the new price.

2.      Renewals and Cancellations

Unless you purchased a Gift Subscription, your Subscription will automatically renew for the same Subscription period (e.g. weekly/monthly/annually). Upon renewal, we will charge the current Subscription price using the same card or other payment method that you previously used.

If you took a Subscription with a ‘free trial’, you may cancel the Subscription at any time before the trial period expires. Unless you cancel prior to the end of the free trial period, your Subscription will automatically continue as a paid-for Subscription.

You agree that your Subscription will begin as soon as we send you the email confirming your Subscription. You will not have the right to cancel the Subscription within the active Subscription period, save for any ‘free trial’ you might be entitled to (see above).

Gift Subscriptions cannot be cancelled. All other Subscriptions may be cancelled at any time, but cancellation will only take effect at the next payment date. There are no refunds for unused parts of your Subscription.
