If you have ever dreamed of finding your own personal fragrance -- the one which will distinguish you from all others -- your chance is here and now.
Leave Cannes and the shores of the Mediterranean for a drive through the French countryside to Grasse, the birthplace of the French perfume industry. All the great perfume houses were established here in the 18th and 19th centuries. The oldest of these, Galimard Perfumery, was established in 1747. The Count de Galimard created the first pomades and perfumes for the court of King Louis XV. Galimard's Studio des Fragrances has been developed to reveal the secret of perfume making. Inspired by the professional process of brand-name perfume creators, Galimard's Studio des Fragrances offers the most sophisticated publicly available perfume creation system in the world.
Today you will create at your own pace, as you discover and travel through the base, heart and top notes of your personal fragrance. During your journey, you will learn about how a perfume is created and the classifications of the various families of scents and their components. Choose from more than 127 essences such as rose of may, patchouli, wild lavender, sandalwood and others. The Master Parfumeur will guide you through your natural creative instincts during this unique experience.
Your creation will be presented in a perfume bottle with the name you have chosen for it. Bath foam and moisturizing body cream in your fragrance can also be purchased.
Upon leaving, you will be presented with a diploma of Elève Parfumeur. This exclusive workshop is followed by a guided tour of Galimard's perfume museum and factory which depicts the age-old process of perfume creation handed down from generation to generation. The recipe for your unique fragrance will be stored in the factory's database and can be re-ordered upon request.
