General terms and sales conditions



















Update date: October 2023


These general terms and conditions of sale (the « General Terms and Conditions ») apply between PRESTIGE COSMETIQUE (the « Company ») and any individual or legal entity, merchant or otherwise, (the « Customer ») purchasing from the Site (hereinafter referred to together as the « Parties »).

The Parties agree that these General Terms and Conditions exclusively govern their relationship.

Any Customer may read the General Terms and Conditions at any time on the website published by the Company (the « Site »).

These General Terms and Conditions may be amended at any time. The applicable terms and conditions are those in force on the Site on the date your order is placed. They are brought to the Customer’s attention and accepted by the Customer when the order is placed.

Validation of any order implies acceptance by the Customer of the General Terms and Conditions brought to his/her attention. This acceptance must be full and complete; any acceptance subject to reservations is considered null and void.

Article 1. 


The purpose of the General Terms and Conditions of Sale is to set out the terms and conditions of sale between the Company and the Customer, from the placing of an order on the Site through to after-sales services, including payment and delivery.

Article 2.


The products governed by these General Terms and Conditions are those which appear on the Site and indicated as sold and dispatched by the Company (the « Products »). In particular, the Company proposes perfumery products for sale.

The Products are only offered while stocks last. The Company accepts no liability in the event of stock shortage or unavailability of Products for orders not yet accepted.

In the event of Products becoming unavailable after an order has been placed by the Customer, especially in the case of simultaneous orders of Products by several Customers, the Customer will be informed by e-mail or telephone as soon as possible and offered the choice of either ordering another Product presented on the Site as a replacement, or cancelling the order.

The essential characteristics (qualitative and quantitative) of the Products are described and presented on the Site as precisely as possible. However, these descriptions, as well as the dimensions and photographs, cannot be considered to be part of the contract.

The Company will make every effort ensure the accuracy of the photographs and descriptions of the Products appearing on the Site. Variations may nevertheless occur, in particular due to the technical limitations of colour rendering on the Customer’s computer equipment, or industrial constraints on the precision of dimensions, so that the Company shall not be liable for variations that are not its fault or for non-substantial variations.

Article 3. 


The price of the Products listed on the Site is given in euros.

These prices include all taxes and take into account French VAT and any reductions applicable on the day of the order.

The prices of the Products do not include delivery costs (costs of processing your order, packaging costs, carriage costs and any return costs). The amount of delivery costs will be specified on the order form before the order is validated. 

Customers residing outside the territory of the European Union and in the French overseas departments and territories (DROM-COM) are informed that the prices displayed on the Site do not include customs duties. Customers are responsible for clearing the Products through customs and for paying any import duties and taxes. These duties and taxes are the responsibility of the Customer, both in terms of declarations and payments to the competent authorities of the country concerned.

The prices of the Products may be amended at any time by the Company. Prices may not, however, be modified once the Customer’s order has been validated.

A bill is drawn up for each order and sent to the Customer by e-mail.
