MAISON MOLINARD, from 1849 to today. It is a rare thing for a family business to uphold its exacting standards and maintain its original fervor as the decades pass. Yet, in Grasse, the perfume capital of the world, five successive generations have made emotion their raison d’être. Having earned the nation’s highest distinction as an Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant (“Living Heritage Company”), recognizing its rare and ancient savoir-faire, Maison Molinard continues to reinvent itself each passing day, forging a legacy in the fires of its passion for perfume.

It was great, I originally booked Grasse location by mistake and we were in NICE. The NICE location graciously took us anyway, even though they had no classes scheduled. My 12 year old daughter loved choosing her own fragrances!

Excellent, fun, and unforgettable experience!!

Twenty minute perfume workshop

Global rating Quality/price Fun

Overall I really enjoyed the experience. However I feel the price was a little too much. I hearing about how the different fragrances are blended and creating my own perfume but I felt it was very basic. I didn't really learn that much... However the whole experience at the perfumery was very interesting. I particularly liked he short film and the woman speaking about how she test many scents and relates them to certain emotions. I find that very creative... I would love to try something more in-depth like that... to smell a variety of fragrances and relate it to emotions then create something really original.

This experience was the highlight of our holiday. We learnt so much, and had such fun blending our own perfumes. I would recommend it to anyone looking for an experience to share with family and friends that you will remember for years to come.

Excellent time

we tried the 30 minutes bar fragrances. the reception and the organization around can be a bit off putting as for the girls at reception it is more important to chat than taking care of customers. but the girls explaining the fragrances and how to mix your own with a couple of choices was super nice and made an effort. after the explanation you receive your little bottle and fill in what you like.
