An Excellent Experience

Note globale Qualité/prix Fun

We had three people take a private lesson to make our own perfumes. The employee we worked with was great. There were a lot of interesting ingredients to work with and she patiently helped us create our unique mixes. Such a fun time and a one-of-a-kind souvenir to leave with. Had never been to Grasse or done anything like this before; would definitely recommend to anyone visiting the area!

A wonderful experience to cherish forever

I booked a special experience from Australia for my mums birthday, whilst they were in Grasse. The staff were divine and nothing was too much trouble. They looked after my mum and dad and gave them a truly personalised and wonderful experience. Thank you xxx

Ideal birthday present

My wife loved the 2 hours of making her own unique perfume. Under the enthusiastic and knowledgeable eye of Paula, she was introduced to the art and science underpinning the skill of making a perfume. Choice of 100s of elements blended to make an individual creation, which can be reordered anytime in the future. Great success
