Frequently Asked Questions
An Important Update To Australia Post's Signature Service
One of the current eParcel options that requires a Signature on Delivery (unless the receiver chooses otherwise), will now default to Signature on Delivery with Authority to Leave. What does this mean with regards to my order? You will still sign for your delivery, if home. But if you're not, and a safe place for the parcel is available, Australia Post will leave it there so it's ready and waiting for you. They will also take a photo of the parcel as proof that it was delivered safely. If there's no safe place, Australia Post will leave a card as they normally would - and take the parcel to a nearby Post Office for you to pick up and sign for. Find Out More
Where is my order?
All goods are dispatched from Melbourne, Victoria, Australia and are delivered by Australia Post. Most orders are dispatched from our warehouse within 1-3 business days. Upon dispatch we will send you a notification email and your order should arrive within 3-7 business days. Please note it can take longer to WA, remote and regional areas. Please note that we rely on our delivery partners to successfully deliver within their recommended service time frames.
Special Delivery Items
Due to Australian shipping regulations, we are required to delivery all hazardous items with atomizers or sprays by 3-10 day road service, and cannot be sent via air express. Product items classified as hazardous include – Body Mists, Room Sprays, Eau de Toilette, Eau de Parfum and some Gifts. Please note that a physical address is required for all hazardous items.
How can I change my delivery address?
Once an order has been placed, providing it has not been picked ready for dispatch you can contact us.

We are unable to guarantee any address change requests will be carried through successfully and we advise you to please take extra care when selecting your delivery address.
