At checkout, we’ll take your payment information and place a temporary “hold” on your card during the trial period which may show up as “pending” or “processing” on your bank statement. At this point, you have not been charged anything!

Once your trial product arrives (delivered to the address provided), you'll have 7 days to try the samples inside!

If you don’t love 1 or more of your scents or candles during this period, simply submit a free return by emailing

Once your return request is submitted and approved, we’ll email you a prepaid return label and have you ship the full-size, unopened bottles or untouched candles back to us. We’ll only charge you for the full size fragrances or candles you keep or void the payment if you choose to return all of the fragrances you ordered.

In order for a fragrance return to be accepted, the full-size bottle(s) must be unopened, sealed, and shipped back in the original kit packaging. If your bottles are damaged or the sleeve is broken, we cannot accept the return and you will be charged.

In order for a candle return to be accepted, the full size candle(s) must be in good-as-new condition, which means it has not been lit or burnt, the wax has not been touched or adultered, the poly cover is in as-new condition, and the lid is not damaged. Additionally, the candles should be shipped back in the original kit packaging for a safe delivery. If your candles are damaged or the wick has been used, we cannot accept the return and you will be charged.

All of our full size fragrances are valid for the at-home trial program as long as you select that option when adding to cart. 

For our candles, the at-home trial applies to our full size candles only. 

Travel size products are excluded from the at-home trial program.


The trial lasts 7 days, and it begins the day your product(s) is delivered.

Similar to a hotel or rental car company, we place an authorization on your card to reserve the funds so that we can charge you for what you keep. This will appear as a 'pending charge' on your statement. This is just an authorization and not an actual charge!

You will only be charged for the full size products you keep after your trial has ended. Your total balance will be adjusted to take into account any products you return.

At the point of purchase, you will be charged for the total of the “Buy” products and an authorization will be placed on your card for the total of the “Try” products. 

The pending authorization for the amount of the at-home trial product will remain on your statement until your trial and returns period is complete. Once your trial period is finished, we will charge you for the full size products you decide to keep.

If you do not submit a return within the 7-day trial period, we will charge your card for the full amount within 5 days of your trial ending. 

If you submit a return during your trial period, we will wait to remove the hold on your card and only charge you for the full-size products you keep after your return has been reviewed and processed. This can take up to 2 weeks after your trial ends.

Returns will only be accepted if received in a good-as-new and sealed condition.

Every five days we reauthorize your card to confirm you have the ability to pay for your products. If your card fails to reauthorize, you will be charged for the full amount of your order. Reauthorizations can fail when there are insufficient funds in the account or when a credit card is being closed.

If you wish to make a return, you will still receive a full refund once we've received your products.

For at-home trial orders, discounts can only be applied to single fragrance trials. The fragrance and candle bundles are excluded from discount code promotions.

Packing your return is easy! For fragrance, simply ship the full-size, unopened and sealed fragrances back in the kit they arrived in. For candles, simply ship back the full-size, unlit and unused candle back in the kit they arrived in. The samples are yours to keep (for both fragrance and candles). 

If your Snif mailer is in good shape, please reuse it to ship back your kit. If it is damaged or torn, feel free to use a standard cardboard box. If you do use your own outer shipping box, we ask that you use a protective filler to make sure that your kit is returned safely and undamaged.
