Yes. However, perfumes are flammable liquids and are classified as “Dangerous Goods.” As such, we must check the regulations for your country and your specific postal region to be certain that we can ship to your address. Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org with your postal code and we will respond as quickly as possible. Once we have verified that it is fine to ship perfumes to your region, you may proceed with placing your order online or by contacting us directly. Please Note: Unfortunately, due to recent changes in Spain regarding the regulations of cosmetics, we can no longer ship any of our products to that country.

The colors that you actually see on your screen will depend on the calibration of your monitor. We cannot guarantee that the display on your monitor will be accurate. Please note, too, that our products are handcrafted from natural ingredients and as such there may be variations in color, as occur in nature.
We carry all of our items in stock at all times, if possible. If due to high demand, an item is temporarily unavailable, the delivery delay will usually not exceed several days for most items. If any of the items you order are out of stock we will contact you, and you may at that time request a credit for the out of stock items or have them placed on backorder. Backordered items may be subject to additional shipping charges if sent in a separate shipment. We will alert you if an unexpected delay occurs. Please plan in advance whenever possible and please bear in mind that our products are shipping from Los Angeles, California, and are handcrafted in small batches -- factors that can affect availability.
We feel our products are superior in many ways to most other fragrance products available. We are proud of the quality and presentation of our collection. All Strange Invisible Perfumes are designed, decanted, and bottled within our own botanical fragrance house based in Venice, California. They are made with certified organic, wildcrafted, biodynamic, and hydro-distilled essences obtained directly from trusted distillers. Limited batches are then reverently hand-blended, set into a base of custom-distilled esprit de Cognac, and aged for a minimum of six months. All Strange Invisible Perfumes are completely botanical and unfiltered. For more information, please visit the "About" section of this website.
You may order online and have the order shipped to an address different than your billing address, but if you would like to have parts of an order shipped to separate addresses, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We ship all orders containing at least one full-size product via Fedex. Orders containing only samples offer USPS Priority Mail as an option.

If you would like the package to be left at your door without a signature, please indicate this preference by emailing us at email@example.com. Please note that we are not responsible for any lost, stolen or damaged items if you have waived the signature request.
