What is The Scent Room Promise? 

Every full size bottle* of fragrance purchased through the Scent Room comes with a matched sample vial.

Open your sample before you open your full size fragrance. Discover love, not lust.

Once you've lived in your fragrance using the sample, you can decide if you want to return the unopened full size bottle.

Choose from a refund, exchange or store credit.

 The Scent Room’s return policy is distinct from the Adore Beauty general returns policy. For the general returns policy, see here.

The Scent Room Returns Promise

I’m not sure if this perfume is right for me?

Relax - you’ve got up to 90 days to experience your sample vial before making your final decision.

There are many factors that influence how a fragrance smells.

  • Scents can also take up to 30 minutes to develop, so don’t judge it straight away.

  • Some perfumes are better suited to warmer or cooler months.

  • The temperature, and your body heat and acidity, can affect the way that a perfume smells on you.

  • One good tip is to try wearing your fragrance before a work out - how does this affect the way it smells?

  • Ask the people around you what they think. After all, fragrance can be a journey shared.
