All shipping charges incurred by purchasing an item online are non-refundable.

WANT Les Essentiels 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.

How to Return

Please follow these steps to ensure your return process is simple and correct:

  1. Click here to start your return process. Fill out the information via the forms.
  2. This will provide you with an RMA number. This number must be written on the outside of your return package.
  3. Affix the prepaid Return label, that was emailed to you, to the outside of the returns box.
  4. Call UPS, FedEx or DHL (dependent on the label carrier) to arrange a pick up at your location, or drop off at a local drop-off point.

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.

All returned merchandise must be inclusive of all original hangtags and packaging. Please make sure to try on footwear on a clean, soft interior surface. Footwear must be in its original shoe box (including dust bags), as these are considered part of the product. Please place the shoe box inside a shipping box in order to prevent damage during shipping.

* Please note that all returns must be accompanied with an RMA number. We reserve the right to refuse any returns that have been returned without a valid RMA number.


We are unable to offer exchanges at this time. We kindly recommend that our clients place a new order and return the original order.

Return Notifications

We will send you an email notification upon receipt of your returned package; this can take up to 5 business days after the returned package has been received. The refund will be placed on the original form of payment, within 10 business days of receipt and should appear within 2 business days after the refund has been processed. All denied returns will also be notified by email.

If your returned merchandise is denied, 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.

Price Adjustments

WANT Les Essentiels will offer price adjustments on first markdowns only. If an item has been reduced from its full price within seven days of your purchase date, we will credit you the difference as a store credit. A price adjustment request must be made to customer care by clicking here within the seven-day time frame. 

We are unable to offer price adjustments on items purchased on markdown or included in a promotion/flash sale that are temporarily reduced in price. No additional price adjustments on current sale items will be made.
