This was an EXCELLENT excursion. Our perfume guide was knowledgeable and patient through the process. And at the end, she helped my wife and I better match our fragrance profiles into a final fragrance that more than exceeded both our expectations.

Such a wonderful experience for my mums birthday trip to Nice. The workshop was informative, interactive and we left with an incredible fragrance from a trip we’ll always remember. Thank you to the team at Molinard!

Great! We were very well introduced to the world of fragrances. Time flew by and everyone was allowed to create their own fragrance that will forever remind us of this trip! Absolute recommendation!

Great workshop. You can't see the time passing and it's quite magical to see how you create a perfume.

It was very interesting to learn about perfume production and also to create my own perfume
