In accordance with Article L. 111-1 of the French Consumer Code, the Purchaser may, prior to placing an order, take note, on the ADOPT PARFUMS website, of the essential characteristics of the product(s) he/she wishes to order. The Purchaser selects one or more products from the various categories offered on the ADOPT PARFUMS website. The offers presented by ADOPT PARFUMS are valid while stocks last. For products not stored in its warehouses, the offers presented by ADOPT PARFUMS are valid subject to availability from its suppliers. ADOPT PARFUMS reserves the right to modify the range of products, in particular according to the constraints of its suppliers. In the event of unavailability of the product ordered, the Purchaser will have the choice of requesting either a refund of the sums paid within thirty (30) days of their payment, or an exchange of the Product.

The products and their characteristics are described and represented as best as possible on the ADOPT PARFUMS website. However, it cannot be ruled out that there may be slight differences in typography, size, colour and proportion between the reproduction of the products on the site and the products delivered.

3.1. Ordering


Any order implies acceptance without restriction or reservation of these general conditions of sale. Once the Buyer has registered his/her order by clicking on the "Validate" icon, he/she is considered to have accepted, with full knowledge of the facts and without reservation, the present general terms and conditions of sale, the prices, volumes and quantities of the products offered for sale and ordered. The Purchaser's order must be confirmed by ADOPT PARFUMS by e-mail. The sale will only be considered definitive once ADOPT PARFUMS has sent the Purchaser confirmation of the order and has received payment in full. ADOPT PARFUMS recommends that the Buyer keeps this information on a paper or computer document. As an exclusive brand, ADOPT PARFUMS sells the products on its site only at retail level and to end consumers. Any order that does not clearly correspond to a retail sale and, more generally, any order that is fraudulent or presumed to be fraudulent, will be considered by ADOPT PARFUMS as null and void.


4. Payment

Payment must be made at the time of ordering by the Buyer. At no time may the sums paid be considered as a deposit or advance payment. All orders are payable in Euros. To pay for the order, the Buyer may use the following payment methods: credit card (Carte Bleue, Visa and Master Card), paypal, apple pay and klarna.

The Purchaser guarantees ADOPT PARFUMS that he/she has the necessary authorisation to use the method of payment chosen when placing his/her order. ADOPT PARFUMS reserves the right to suspend or cancel any order and/or delivery, whatever its nature and level of execution, in the event of non-payment of any sum due by the Buyer or in the event of a payment incident.

The delivery of any new order may be suspended in the event of late payment of a previous order, notwithstanding the provisions hereof.

In the context of the fight against Internet fraud, the information relating to your order may be transmitted to any third party able to carry out verification operations as detailed in Article 12 of these General Conditions.

The Purchaser, having taken note of the products and their characteristics marketed by ADOPT PARFUMS, has, under his sole responsibility and according to his needs as determined before placing any order, chosen the product(s) which are the subject of his order.
