Purchased Products will be transported by the usual postal services who undertake to deliver the parcels within the following average times: 2 to 5 working days from dispatch for USA or France, up to 3 weeks depending on the country.
The order will be executed within a maximum period of thirty (30) days from the day following the day on which the Customer has transmitted his order, subject to the complete payment of the price.
Any delay in delivery must be reported as soon as possible to the following address: email@example.com
The failed delivery of the purchased product(s) within the above-mentioned specified time does not entitle the Client to refuse the delivery and/or dismissing the contract of sale regarding the purchased product(s). If after 5 working days, (excluding Saturday and holidays and starting from when Argos Fragrances sends to the Client the Order Accepted by email), the purchased product(s) has not been delivered to the Client, please contact the Argos Fragrances customer care service by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Transportation is by express courier (hereafter, the “Courier”), which employs a tracking service for goods.
The Courier delivers the goods from Monday to Friday, during office hours. The recipient cannot require that the delivery be made at a specific date and time. If the recipient is absent, a delivery slip will be left at the recipient’s address, informing the rescheduled date of delivery.
The Courier will attempt the delivery twice and, in the case of the recipient being absent during the second delivery, before returning the goods to the supplier the Courier will contact the recipient by phone at the number (if noted) given in the Order.
The purchased product(s) can be delivered in the USA, France, and in all countries serviced by the Courier.
The transportation costs may vary in accordance with the country of delivery and the weight/volume of the goods. However, the Client is informed of the exact transportation cost (not including possible additional custom taxes) while completing the Order and also before confirming and sending it to Argos Fragrances.
Argos Fragrances cannot be held responsible for any delay or possible loss of the package between the shipper and the final delivery address.
By sending the Order, the Client agrees that the delivery of the purchased product(s) may be made in more than one delivery. In case of a failed delivery of the purchased product(s) due to causes attributed to the Client (e.g. wrong address or telephone number in the Order, continuous absence of the recipient, refusing to accept the delivery even when not damaged and when containing the correct purchased product(s), etc.) the Client will be reimbursed only if the entire order is received intact and not damaged back to Argos Fragrances; however, such reimbursement does not include delivery and returning expenses, and/or possible custom charges relating to both the exporting and re-entry of the goods from and back into USA or France (whichever country your order was initially shipped from).
Customer is responsible for determining their own countries incoming parcel and customs release protocols. The customer is responsible for contacting and following up with their local customs and or tax offices to ensure all customs release requirements are met and any extra taxes, duties, tariffs or fees are paid if required.
If you do not reply as requested to your local customs, local DHL office or local post regarding your order and your order is confiscated, returned to the sender, or destroyed; then the customer is responsible for all charges for the product and shipping and duties, vat, tax costs. There will be no accepted refusal of any order or chargebacks from customers who have abandoned their order with local customs, post office, or DHL.

Due to the current global pandemic situation it is very much expected that your delivery may be delayed for international orders.

Please keep in mind our various shipping partners around the world are doing the best to keep up with the influx of post, keeping their workers safe and ultimately you and your family safe. Please allow for extra time for your packages to arrive. Please see more details on your selected shipping method below.
