Please read these terms and conditions carefully before you use this website. By using our site, you indicate that you accept these terms of use and that you agree to abide by them.

This website and the products sold here are created by Aftelier Perfumes, 1518 Walnut St., Berkeley, CA 94709. (510) 841-2111. [email protected]. We sell our products on our website and do not have a retail store. We are a working studio and not open to the public. We are not a bulk supplier of essential oils, absolutes or isolates, and do not provide MSDS or COA documents.

Privacy Policy
Your privacy is critical to us! We do not sell, trade, or otherwise share your personal information, such as name, email address, physical address, phone numbers, buying history, etc. Your information stays here. You do not have to worry about receiving unsolicited email from other companies or individuals as a result of shopping, except for tracking information thru FedEx, USPS, or UPS.

We make our products with 100% pure & natural ingredients: essential oils (sustainable & wildcrafted when possible), absolutes, CO2 extractions, isolates (derived from essential oil fractions), various carrier oils, alcohol, and beeswax. We do not use any synthetics, fragrance oils, phthalates, parabens, glycols, or petrochemicals. Our perfumes and face & body oils are NOT for consumption. Our products are cruelty-free: we do not test our products on animals, and any animal essences that we use are either sustainably harvested or antique.

Chef's Essences Flavor Drops - Storage and Shipping
The citrus oils (bergamot, grapefruit, lime, orange) should be kept in the refrigerator to preserve their flavor for a year. All other essences will keep two years at room temperature. Our Chef's Essences are shipped from a food-grade bottler in Virginia (all our other products are shipped from Berkeley, CA).

During the checkout process, we list your shipping options and costs, which depend on your location and order contents. We ship your order within 2 business days from receipt. For international orders, you may need to pay customs duties or other taxes & fees, and we do not handle any of these on our end. We declare the full value on all customs forms.

All sales are final. For product safety reasons we cannot accept returns or exchanges. We encourage you to try our tiny samples before buying larger sizes. We indicate the various sample sizes in their descriptions, but please note that they do not always fill the sample bottle, e.g. the 1/4 ml perfume sample comes in a 1/2 ml bottle.

The user is solely responsible for the safe use of our products. We assume no responsibility or liability for any claims arising out of the use or misuse of our products. Please keep our products out of the reach of children. If you are pregnant or nursing, have heart disease, epilepsy, high blood pressure, diabetes, or any other medical condition that can be affected by essential oils or fragrances, please seek the advice of a health professional before using our products. We recommend testing our perfumes on a small area of skin to check for any possible allergic reactions. Apply a small amount to the skin on your inner arm. If redness, burning, itching or irritation occurs, stop using product immediately and wash with soap and water to clean the affected area.

Limitation of Liability
Aftelier Perfumes shall not be liable for any special or consequential damages that result from the use of this website or the use or misuse of our products, even if Aftelier Perfumes has been advised of the possibility of such damages. You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Aftelier Perfumes, from and against all losses, expenses, damages and costs, including attorneys' fees.
