From the moment I arrived I was given VIP treatment by the Molinard team and my tutor, Erina. There was excellent booking communication in English. The team were decorating the shop window for Xmas so there was a wonderful festive atmosphere. Learning about my choices in fragrance structure was so interesting. This is a wonderful treat for any woman. The perfect indulgence!

A wonderful introduction to the world of perfume

The experience is very “hands on”, allowing you to test 100+ types of scent before creating your own blend. Fortunately the expert guide helps with selecting appropriate combinations to ensure the end product works as a perfume. The session is rounded off by champagne and macaroons to complete a very enjoyable couple of hours.

Must do in Nice

It was a perfect rainy day group activity. It Was so much fun to make our own perfume, and we each loved the result! I love that you can reorder your signature perfume when you run out. Highly recommend
