Return policy

When you purchase items from, you are entitled to return your purchase during a period of 14 calendar days, calculated from the day following the day on which you received the Product in your capacity as a customer. This applies for all products except for our gift cards, which are not refundable or exchangeable.

As our gift cards are a personalized form of credit, and differ from the products Essentiel sells online, our return policy does not apply to gift cards. Gift cards cannot be returned or exchanged for cash or any other forms of payments, not even partially.

A product which you wish to return must satisfy the following conditions:

    • It must be in new condition.
    • It must include the Essentiel price tag and brand label.
    • It must be unworn, unwashed and undamaged.
    • It must be complete (i.e. together with all items such as a belt, keychain etc. which came with the original product).
    • It must be packaged in a sufficiently sturdy box (we recommend neutral, not showing a logo), so that we receive the product in an undamaged condition.


How does this work in practice?

3. If your returned package reaches us within 14 days, in accordance with the conditions above, we will arrange for a refund within 14 calendar days. We reserve the right to only make a refund when the goods have reached us.

    • If you paid for your order by credit card, the credit card you used to pay for the products returned will be credited, less any sums due (discounts or gift cards used to pay for the order).
