Absolutely amazing experience! We enjoyed the amazing layout and experience in creating pur own perfumes! Covid guidelines were followed, and everything was sanitized. The activity started 30 min late due to someone in the previous group arriving late, which we didn't mind as that meant we had more time to look at the perfumes in the store and take pictures with all the vintage pieces around the store. Would highly recommend!

Very nice, entertaining, but interesting workshop! Definitely enough, the longer one would have overwhelmed our noses even more! No German audio guide, instead personal instruction in English (for us adults this is completely okay, for the kids n bissel stupid, if you can actually choose it separately)

One of the best activities I did with my partner! We created a perfume for our upcoming baby girl that smells super good, thanks in part to some great advice from the expert. I highly recommend !

The Man was very nice an we had so much fun and so much fragrance selection. My Parfum smells so good! It was worth the price. I would definitely do it again. Thank you!

Definitely a must when in Grasse. We had so much fun and we loved the perfumes we created. Highly highly recommend.
