An Amazing Experience in Nice

Global rating Quality/price Fun

My husband and I absolutely loved this class! We were able to learn about the steps of making the perfume and had a lot of fun smelling all the fragrances and scent combinations. The experience was a fun-filled afternoon in Nice leaving us with lots of memories and our own personal scents!

Wonderful experience!

My daughter and I had a wonderful experience creating our perfumes. Would definitely recommend to others.

One of the top activities of our trip to southern France!

The opportunity to develop our own signature fragrances, made this a truly unique activity. We were treated with wonderful hospitality and graciousness by the staff. The value was extraordinary at this location. The only drawback was that they were not ready for us at our scheduled time, so there was some waiting for the space to be set up. Normally this wouldn't be an issue. However, we were scheduled for another activity later that morning, and due to this delay, we arrived late for that. I would also recommend directions be given on the confirmation, since the GPS didn't recognize the location.
