Return policy

You can return your purchased items from within 30 days counting from the day after you received your order.

We offer complimentary return shipping via Hermes for the UK.

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 (neutral and not showing a logo), so that we receive the product in an undamaged condition.
    • Did you receive a damaged article? Please contact us as soon as possible.

How does this work in practice?

Making a return is simple:

    • For free return shipping you can use the pre-addressed Hermes return label included in your package.
    • Fill in your return request either online in 'My Account' section OR on fill in the delivery note that was inside the box.
    • Drop the package off in a Hermes parcel shop.
    • We recommend writing down the Hermes tracking number mentioned on the pre-addressed label so you can follow the shipment.

If you send the return to us at own expense you can choose your own shipping method and carrier. We strongly recommend shipping with a tracking option, as you are responsible for the package until it reaches our offices.


You will receive e-mail updates from us to help track the progress of your return. You can also follow the progress of your return request in your online Essentiel account. Once your return reaches us, and is in accordance with the conditions above, we will arrange for a refund within 30 calendar days. We reserve the right to only make a refund when the goods have reached us.

    • The refund will be credited to the original payment method used to place the order.
    • If the order was (partially) paid with a gift card, a new gift card will be issued and sent via e-mail.
    • If a discount was applied to your original order, the amount refunded will be adjusted if necessary.


    • Any returns for which the sender cannot be identified will be refused, so make sure you always enclose the returns slip or invoice or packing slip.
    • No returns can be accepted via the Essentiel Stores.
    • 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.
    • Returns outside the 30-day time frame may be accepted solely at the discretion of Essentiel Antwerp.
