What if I don't like my perfume?

We want you to love the scent you wear, so we’ll do whatever we can to make sure your Bon Parfumeur order works for you. If for any reason you're not satisfied with your order simply reach out to us at contact@bonparfumeur.com and we'll refund your money, no question asked.
We do however reserve the right to limit the money back guarantee to one use per customer.

What are head / heart / base notes?

We’re going to take you into the details here. Perfumes are designed according to an olfactory pyramid. When you spray a fragrance, the first elements you notice are the head notes. They’re normally quite fresh and sharp and only last a couple of minutes in the air. As they dissipate, you’ll begin to smell the heart notes coming through and they’ll stay with you for 1-2 hours. The scents that stay on your skin for the whole day are the base notes. They’ll become part of your daily life.

 

Is there any alcohol in your fragrances?

Yes, our perfumes contain alcohol. If you wish to learn more about what’s in our fragrances, we’d be happy to share more information with you. Send your questions to client@bonparfumeur.com.

 

Do you test your products on animals ?

Bon Parfumeur do not test on animals and do not ask other to do so. We are very sensitive human being and believe animals deserve our greatest respect.

 

What is the best way to apply perfume?

It’s an art. Despite what we often see, some of the best places to apply perfume on the body are unconventional, like the elbow crease and even the back of the knee. Wrists work well too. The important thing to know is that perfume lasts longer on the warm parts of your body.

 

How long can I keep my perfume for?

An eau de parfum can be kept for several years, though we recommend using it within two. It’ll smell better before it starts to age.

 

Are there any synthetic ingredients? Could they be bad for my health?

We’re glad you’re doing your homework. We’ve chosen to use some synthetic components in our fragrances because they have chemical properties that make them more effective than their natural equivalents. For example, we find synthetic peony fragrance has better olfactory properties than the flowers as they exist in nature, which are very difficult to work with. Rest assured, however, that these ingredients don’t pose a health risk.

 

Can I make a suggestion for a new perfume?

Please do! Our perfumes are created by professional French perfumers, but we’re very open to designing in collaboration with curious creatives. You can also do it yourself, by mix-and-matching two or more of our existing fragrances. Feel free to send your ideas and requests to contact@bonparfumeur.com.

Who do you use for delivery?
We use Royal Mail Tracked for our Standard Delivery service and Royal Mail signed for Tracked for our Next Day Delivery Service. In some circumstances we may need to send your order with a different courier, and we will do our best to notify you of this. Orders placed using our Shutl delivery service will be delivered by an independent courier.

 

How do I return an unwanted item?
Items can be returned either by post, or to one of our stores (see next question) or via Collect Plus.

 

Is it possible to return products bought from the internet to a store?
If your product is unwanted or you've changed your mind you can return your product to your nearest store for an exchange or refund. If you decide to return your product to store then you MUST take your despatch confirmation email as proof of purchase with you. No return can be completed in store without it. Any return to store must be done within 90 days, and the product must be returned unused and unopened. If the product is returned in a condition which is not fully resaleable or the packaging is damaged, we reserve the right to refuse a refund or exchange on the item. This does not affect your statutory rights. We are unable to refund postage or gift wrap charges if your product is unwanted or you have changed your mind.

What does Head/Heart/Base notes mean ?

Notes in perfumery are descriptors of scents that can be sensed upon the application of a perfume. Notes are separated into three classes; top/head notes, middle/heart notes, and base notes; which denote groups of scents which can be sensed with respect to the time after the application of a perfume.

 

How do I choose the right perfume for me?

We really would then advise trying fragrances in-store. Buying on-line is fine for replenishment, but there is nothing like experiencing the way a fragrance develops on your skin.
Initially, try the fragrance on a blotter (also known as a perfume ‘spill’); these should be available on perfume counters – and when you buy a Discovery Box from this site, you’ll find a pack of blotters inside. Allow a few minutes for the alcohol and the top notes to subside, and then smell the blotters. At this stage you may be able to eliminate one or more, if they don’t appeal – but it is really the heart notes and the lingering base notes which you will live with, and which are crucial.
Remember: blotters are a useful way of eliminating no-hopers and lining up possibilities, but they’re not really enough to base a perfume purchase on. You really need to smell a scent on your skin.
Do make the most of FReD: The Perfume Society’s ‘virtual fragrance consultant’ who you’ll find on this site here (the name’s actually short for Fragrance Education). You can tell FReD which perfumes you’re keen on, and ‘he’ will make a personalised selection, suggesting up to six fragrances at a time for you to try, at various price-points.

 

What is the difference between perfume/scent/fragrance?

Nothing. They are all words used to describe the wonderful world of smell, and the scented liquids (or balms) we apply to our bodies. Fragrance is in more common usage in the US, and throughout the perfume industry itself. Perfume comes from the Latin ‘per fumum’ which literally means through smoke. It originates from ancient times when people burned woods, resins and flowers as offerings to their gods.
