What is a Designer Inspiration?

It's a product which is inspired by a stated designer fragrance, NOT a replica or copy, this is not to be confused. 

What kind of fragrance are they?

All of our products are Parfums, which is the strongest scent available.

Are your products Vegan Friendly and Cruelty Free?

We only use Vegan Friendly Fragrance Oils, and of course they are cruelty free! We wouldn't have it any other way.

Are they safe to spray on clothes?

As there is a higher oil content to make them last longer, with ALL perfumes, not just The Essence Vaults's perfumes, we do recommend that you take care when applying on clothes, and of course you do so at your own risk. 

How should I store my fragrances?

Please note as with all fragrances, they must be kept out of direct sunlight and away from hot/cold elements. Failure to do so may result in your product being affected.

Can I amend or cancel my order after I've placed it?

Unfortunately all of our shipping is automatic, so we cannot edit or cancel an order once it is placed.

How long does shipping take?

 Orders placed before 8AM Monday to Friday will be processed & shipped on the same working day. You will receive your parcel within 2-3 working days (excluding holidays). For Highlands and Islands this could be an extra day.

Orders placed on a Friday (after  8 AM), Saturday or Sunday will be dispatched on the following Monday (excluding bank holidays).
