From the XVII century onwards, Grasse has been considered the world's capital of perfume. More than 60 companies manufacture raw materials, flavours and fragrances and employ almost 3000 people. Three perfume factories offer daily tours and demonstrations: Molinard, Fragonard and Galimard. The last one also offers the possibility to create your own fragrance during a 2 hour workshop, under the supervision of professionals, who teach and explain the art of perfume creation. You will learn all about the art of combining head note, heart note and base note into your own most favourite scent. Before you go, think of how you would like to name your perfume, as it will have the name of your choice. How nice when friends ask you : what perfume is this? It’s my own personal one, it’s unique!!
Once the perfume is made you can re-order it and it will be send to you by post. With the same scent you can also order other products, such as body cream and shower gel. The price for a workshop is around 50€ , which already includes a small bottle of your own creation. Don’t forget to name your perfume.
Fun activity for adults and kids, especially on a rainy day.
