9.6.1 When the Customer has chosen the delivery by Colissimo or DHL and the Customer or the recipient of the order is absent, a transit advice note is left by the carrier, indicating the address where the package can be collected within a certain delay. This period usually corresponds to 15 (fifteen) days. Nevertheless, it may vary according to the country of delivery. NOSE invites the Customer to inquire with the local postal services and carriers or to reach NOSE at the number +33 (0) 1 40 26 46 03 or by email at the address email@example.com for additional information.
9.6.2 In the event that the Customer or the recipient of the order does not collect the package within the time limit, the package will be automatically returned to NOSE by the carrier. NOSE will refund the price of the order to the Customer, excluding the delivery costs (for which the Customer is fully responsible) between 10 (ten) to 14 (fourteen) days from the date when NOSE receives the package. Nevertheless, within the same time period, the Customer has the possibilty to ask Nose to ship again the ordered products. In this case, the Customer will have to pay new delivery fees, regardless of the amount of the order, even if the fees of the first delivery were initially taken in charge by Nose. The delivery fees are specific to the delivery method chosen by the Customer and will be communicated to theCustomer before any new delivery of the ordered products.
9.6.3 If the Customer has chosen the "Pickup" option, the order must be picked up at the NOSE store located at 20, rue Bachaumont, 75002 Paris (France) during opening hours, i.e. from Monday to Saturday, from 10.30 a.m. to 7.30 p.m., excluding public holidays, within a maximum period of 3 (three) months from receipt of the email informing the Customer that their order is ready. Failure to withdraw the order within this period will be considered as a fault of the Customer, leading to the cancellation of the order at their exclusive expense without them being able to claim any reimbursement whatsoever.

(ii) free preparation and packaging of samples in the event that a total or partial withdrawal would drop the total amount of the order below the threshold giving rise to the right to receive this advantage (see article 4.4 of the Conditions general sales).

11 – GUARANTEES
11.1 NOSE informs the Client that he/she benefits from (i) a legal warranty of conformity, pursuant to Articles L. 217-3 and following of the Consumer Code, the terms of which are specified in the box below, and (ii) the legal warranty relating to hidden defects, pursuant to Articles 1641 and following of the Civil Code for all products sold on the Site. The legal guarantees apply in any case in compliance with the conditions governing them.
To exercise one of the legal guarantees, NOSE invites the Customer to contact it at + 33 (0) 1 40 26 46 03, by email at email@example.com or go directly to the store at 20, rue Bachaumont 75002 Paris (France) during business hours, Monday through Saturday from 10:30 am to 7:30 pm excluding holidays.
11.2 Legal Warranty of Conformity
Pursuant to Article L. 217-3 of the Consumer Code and from the date of delivery of the goods, NOSE is liable for defects in conformity that appear within a period of 2 (two) years:
(i) on the product itself;
(ii) resulting from the packaging when the latter has been put at its charge by the contract or has been made under its responsibility.
11.2.1 To be in conformity with the Contract, the Product must:
(i) correspond to the description, type, quantity and quality or any other characteristic provided for in the contract - NOSE guarantees in particular the authenticity of the products it distributes, as well as their official origin;
(ii) be fit for the purpose usually expected of goods of the same type, taking into account any applicable legal provisions, technical standards and/or specific codes of conduct;
(iii) if applicable, possess the qualities that NOSE presented to the Client in the form of a sample or model prior to the conclusion of the contract;
(iv) be delivered with all the accessories, including packaging, that the consumer may legitimately expect;
(v) correspond to the quantity, quality, and characteristics, including durability, functionality, compatibility, and safety, that a buyer may legitimately expect of goods of the same type, taking into account the nature of the product as well as public statements made by NOSE, including in advertising or labeling;
(vi) have the characteristics agreed upon by the parties or be fit for any special purpose sought by the Client, brought to NOSE's attention no later than at the time of the conclusion of the contract and accepted by the latter.
11.2.2 Defects of conformity that appear within 24 (twenty-four) months from delivery of the goods are, unless proven otherwise, presumed to have existed at the time of delivery of the goods, unless this presumption is incompatible with the nature of the goods or the defect claimed.
11.2.3 The Client shall not be able to challenge the conformity of a product by invoking a defect concerning the particular characteristics of a product that deviate from the conformity criteria set forth in clause 11.2.1 of which it has been specifically informed by NOSE and to which it has expressly and separately consented upon conclusion of the contract. In this regard, NOSE does not guarantee the Customer's satisfaction and in particular the performance of the perfumery products. In the event of dissatisfaction with these criteria, the Customer is invited to contact the manufacturing companies, whose contact information may be provided by NOSE, to make claims.
11.2.4 When, during the course of a contract, personal data is processed by NOSE and the latter fails to comply with its obligations under Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of 27 April 2016 and Law n°78-17 of 6 January 1978 on information technology, files and freedoms, resulting in non-compliance with one or more of the product compliance criteria set forth in 11.2.1, this failure shall be deemed to be a failure to comply.
11.2.5 The warranty of conformity allows the Customer to obtain free of charge the replacement of the product with an identical product, subject to available stocks. Given the nature of the products sold on the Site, the Customer may not obtain repair of the product, as this is impossible or would entail disproportionate costs for NOSE. If replacement is impossible, if it could not be implemented within 30 (thirty) days after it was taken, if the non-conformity persists despite the replacement of the product, or if the non-conformity is particularly serious, NOSE will refund the Customer the price of the product based on the total invoiced price including VAT and delivery costs, as well as the cost of returning the product, unless the Customer informs NOSE in advance in writing of its decision to obtain a reduction in the price of the product. If the lack of conformity relates only to certain products delivered under the sales contract, Customer shall have the right to rescind the contract for all the products under this contract, if Customer cannot reasonably be expected to agree to keep only the conforming products.
11.2.6 In the event of a product replacement, the legal warranty of conformity is renewed for 2 (two) years from the delivery of an identical replacement product.
11.2.7 In the event of termination of the contract, NOSE shall refund the sums due to the Customer no later than fourteen (14) days following receipt of the product or proof of its return by the Customer, using the same method of payment as that used at the time of purchase. In particular, if the Customer has used a gift card to pay for all or part of the products concerned, the balance used will be credited back to the Customer's gift card and the remainder will be credited according to the payment method used.
11.2.8 Regarding samples, in the event that the Client does not receive a sample, or receives a sample that has leaked or whose name is illegible, NOSE shall, at the Client's option, reimburse the preparation and packaging costs and, if applicable, the delivery costs that have been applied, or allocate a sample at no additional cost to be applied to the next order.
11.3 Legal warranty on hidden defects
Pursuant to Article 1648 paragraph 1 of the Civil Code, the Customer may invoke the warranty for hidden defects against NOSE within two (2) years from the discovery of a defect affecting a product.
11.3.1 Hidden defects are those that render the product sold unfit for its intended use, or that diminish such use to such an extent that the Customer would not have purchased it, or would have paid a lower price for it, had he known of them.
11.3.2 In order to exercise the warranty action for hidden defects, Customer must prove that the defect existed at the time of purchase, that it was hidden and that it renders the product unusable.
11.3.3. The Client may choose either to cancel the sale, in which case NOSE will reimburse the Client for the price of the product based on the invoiced price including VAT and delivery costs, or a reduction in price.
11.3.4. In the event of termination of the contract, NOSE will refund the amounts due to the Client no later than fourteen (14) days after receipt of the product or proof of its return by the Client, using the same method of payment as that used at the time of purchase. In particular, if the Customer has used a gift card to pay for all or part of the products concerned, the balance used will be credited back to the gift card and the remainder according to the payment method used.
