By using the Sonoma Scent Studio website, hereafter referred to as the Site, you are acknowledging that you have read, understood, and agreed, without limitation or qualification, to be bound by the following Terms and Conditions.
The safe and proper use of our products is the sole responsibility of the user. Sonoma Scent Studio and owner Laurie Erickson assume no responsibility or liability for the misuse of our products. Sonoma Scent Studio and owner Laurie Erickson assume no responsibility for any conditions or allergic reactions that may arise from the direct or indirect use of our products. The purchase of any products from our Site constitutes an understanding on the part of the buyer that he/she is fully aware of the terms set forth herein.
If you have a known allergy to a specific ingredient such as oakmoss or citrus, check the notes listed for each scent so you can avoid those scents that contain the ingredient to which you are allergic. We are happy to answer specific ingredient questions if you need more information. If you are prone to allergies, discuss the use of fragrance with your physician and consider using fragrance in a scent locket rather than in direct contact with your skin. Regardless of whether you have known allergies, we advise you to always test a little dab of scent on a small area of skin and wait a day before trying a larger application (in other words, do a skin patch test). If you do experience a skin reaction to one of our perfumes (such as redness, itching, or irritation), wash the perfume off with water and discontinue use. The perfumes are for external use only; avoid getting them in the eyes, ears, or mouth. Do not use perfumes on the face. Keep perfumes away from children and pets. Use common sense with perfumes as you would for any cosmetic products. We cannot predict how each person will react to the scents, but we are happy to answer your questions via email.
All contents of the Site are offered on as as is basis without any warranty whatsoever either express or implied. Sonoma Scent Studio and its owner shall not be liable for incidental, consequential, indirect, or punitive damages or lost profits arising in connection with your use of the Site or any product of Sonoma Scent Studio. In no event shall the liability of Sonoma Scent Studio and its owner exceed the amount paid by you for products, if any, purchased by you at the Site.
Although we try to be as accurate as possible in our product descriptions and photos, we do not warrant that the information on the Site is always complete, accurate, current, or error-free. Colors can vary with your monitor and may be different in real life. Further, we do not guarantee that the Site will always be available.
All content displayed on the Site is the property of the Site's owner/author, including all text and images and logos, and is protected by United States and international laws governing copyrights and trademarks. The content on the Site is not to be used or reproduced in any way, in whole or in part, without written permission from the Site's owner/author. All rights are reserved.
We currently ship only to USA addresses. UPS cannot deliver to PO boxes, so we need a street address for packages that ship via UPS. We can only ship bottles to destinations that are reachable by ground from CA due to regulations on shipments of alcohol-based perfume.
Products are not returnable because once they leave the studio they can't be used by anyone else, so you should try samples or small sizes first to test the scents. If you are unsure, start with the smallest 1 ml samples because those are inexpensive and will give you plenty of perfume to tell if you like the scent well enough to pursue it further. We want you to be pleased with your purchases, so we're always happy to answer any questions you have before you order. If something should leak in transit, please contact us as soon as you receive the package and we'll make it right.
Products should be stored inside the house in a cool, dark place for maximum longevity of the aroma ingredients. Perfume will not keep well if it is exposed to light, heat, and humidity, or if it is exposed to large variations in temperature as can occur in a garage, basement, or car. Perfumes are best stored in a closed cabinet or cupboard where they will not be exposed to light, and they should not be stored in the bathroom where they can be exposed to steam. Colors of perfumes may change with time and that is normal and not a defect. The scents will change slowly with time as well. Citrus-heavy perfumes should be used within a year and other perfumes are best when used within two years but may be fine for many more years depending on storage conditions. We cannot be responsible for changes to the perfumes once they leave our hands and arrive in a customer's possession.
When you place an order with Sonoma Scent Studio, you will be asked to provide your name, billing address, shipping address, email, and phone number.

We use Mals shopping cart with PayPal as our payment processor; when you input your credit card information through the PayPal processing interface, your information is encrypted and Sonoma Scent Studio never sees or receives your credit card number.
We screen all orders for fraud and reserve the right to refuse to process any order that we suspect is fraudulent or is likely to result in nonpayment for the products.
Sonoma Scent Studio and its owner reserve the right to revise the terms and conditions of this Agreement at any time. Any such revision will be binding and effective immediately upon posting of the revised Agreement on our web site.

This Agreement shall be governed in all respects by the laws of the United States of America and by the laws of the State of California. All transactions shall be deemed consummated only upon acceptance by Sonoma Scent Studio and shall be subject exclusively to the laws of the State of California applicable to agreements entered into and fully performed in California.
