Perfect for kids

Great experience! Our kids had individual attention. It was the perfect length about 40 minutes. The kids were thrilled to have their own perfume! It was the highlight of our trip!

Children’s Workshop

Great children’s workshop. The kids loved picking out their own fragrances. They had even more fun decorating the bottle and carrying it their bag. Thank you so much! I have two friends visiting from the States that have already signed their kids up! Fun experience.

The girls loved their perfume making experience. Our host was delightful and allowed the girls to be as indecisive as they wanred. They felt they created their perfume. They would have been happy making perfumes for the rest of the day.
