All orders are processed within one to four business days from the time we receive them. Samples are shipped via USPS First Class Mail and can take seven to ten days to arrive. 15 ml bottles are shipped via USPS Priority Mail. 50 ml bottles are shipped FedEx Ground. We will send you a notification including a tracking number once your order has shipped.
Carta is based in San Francisco, California. We charge sales tax for any orders shipped within California. We don't as of yet offer international shipping.
Carta fragrances are handcrafted and bottled in small batches to order. We therefore can not take any returns. Given the idiosyncratic nature of individual body chemistry, we encourage you to try a sample first before commiting to a full bottle.
All orders are gift wrapped in tissue paper. If you are sending a Carta fragrance as a gift, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your instructions and we will include a small card with your personal message.
Carta takes the privacy of our customers very seriously. We value our customers and respect your privacy. This policy explains our terms of service, which contains important information about your legal rights.
