We are temporarily slowing down our local deliveries, these will be done on a fortnightly basis the next delivery date is 19/09/20. To have your order delivered on this date please place it by 16/09/20. Thank you for being patient.

Can I place an order?
Yes! We are excited to continue doing what we love and hand pouring candles for your homes.
What will this mean for my order?
While we are doing our best to keep things speedy, it may be possible that we are not able to restock as usual and there may be delays of up to two weeks in your order being received.

How will safety and hygiene be managed?
We operate from home, in a safe and clean environment, managed by one person. That is myself, the owner of Masala Scents! This reduces the likelihood of any transmission or lack of sanitisation on any products. I maintain the highest standard of hygiene through out the entire process and in our workspace to provide safe and quality products.
How will delivery be contactless in Level 2?
We do deliveries ourselves within Auckland and will be managed by us. For contactless delivery in LEVEL 2 these are the procedures that will be applied.
- A delivery date will be provided to you via text or email.
- A suitable location at your home to leave the package (front door/mailbox/by gate) will be arranged and a time slot for delivery assigned.
- On the day of delivery we will text you 30 mins to 1 hr before our delivery time.
- On arrival to your location, we will message you we have arrived and leave your items at your requested location.
Contactless delivery means we will not be able to take orders for delivery to business addresses or P.O boxes.
Will pickup be available?
We operate from home and in the present circumstances we do not want to encourage our customers to travel when it is not essential. Pick up will be discontinued until further notice.
We are navigating an unprecedented situation and appreciate your support! Please ask us any questions you may have on firstname.lastname@example.org
Happy shopping doston! Please stay safe and stay home.
