Online Return Policy

All sale (visibly marked-down items) are final sale and cannot be returned or exchanged. All Apothecary (beauty, fragrance, candles and bath & body) items are final sale and cannot be returned or exchanged. All intimates are final sale and cannot be returned or exchanged.

To ensure that you are completely satisfied with your purchase, you can exchange or return unworn and unopened merchandise to WANT Apothecary within two weeks (14 days) of the date of receipt. WANT Apothecary offers complimentary return shipping.

All shipping charges incurred by purchasing an item online are non-refundable. WANT Apothecary Online does not accept returns of merchandise that was not purchased online.

To receive an RMA number, please follow the instructions as outlined below under 'How to Return'. We reserve the right to refuse any returns without an RMA number.

WANT Apothecary will not issue a refund for merchandise that does not meet the above conditions. Merchandise that has been worn, used, opened (apothecary) altered or damaged will be denied. If your returned merchandise is not accepted, for reasons we deem appropriate, you will be notified via email to the email address you provided during checkout. Within two weeks (14 days) of being notified that you are not entitled to a refund, you will have the ability to request that your merchandise be shipped back to you in the condition that it was received by our customer service, at your own cost. You have two weeks (14 days) to reply with a written request for the return of your merchandise, in which you must agree to pay for return shipping and a restocking fee and specify the method of payment for this service. If this is not done within two weeks (14 days), you are authorizing WANT Apothecary to dispose of such merchandise.

For returns with orders that qualified for free shipping: should your returned item lower your order threshold that qualified for free shipping, the regular shipping fee in the amount of the kept item will be deducted from your refund/credit.

How to Return

Please follow these steps to ensure your return process is simple and correct. Included with each purchase invoice is a return RMA form and a prepaid UPS return shipping label.

  1. Contact our Customer Care team via our Contact page.
  2. This will then provide you with an RMA number. This number must be written on the outside of your return package.
  3. Affix the prepaid UPS Return label, that was emailed to you, to the outside of the returns box.
  4. Call UPS to arrange a pick up at your home or office.

You are free to use your own return services at your discretion. We recommend you use a service that you can track and one that offers insurance.
