Sounds daunting, but Tijon makes it easy. The hardest part for many is naming their own fragrance. One experience takes 2-3 hours and costs 129€ (1€ = $1 cash). Everyone leaves with their own custom fragrance and a gift bag of Tijon products worth 40€ . Another experience takes 60-90 minutes and costs 75€ with everyone leaving with their own fragrance and a gift bag of Tijon products worth 40€. Tijon also offers an on-site boutique with its signature line of 18 French Caribbean fragrances, cosmetics and gifts. NOTE that we offer limited hours in Sept. and Oct. « less

Although we did not do the whole create your perfume experience we did meet John author of A Bech Less Traveled, which peaked our curiosity about Tijon. There were many fragrances to choose from and a lot of unique gifts that were not fragrances. I couldn't quite choose one so I picked up a sampler. It was nice to meet... More

My wife, daughter and two granddaughters booked this excursion while on the Disney Fantasy Cruising the Caribbean. They had wonderful time! Our granddaughters, ages 6 and 9, were just as excited about making their own perfume as the adults. The owners are great, and help you through the whole process, including snapping pictures with your camera so that you can... More

I watched and was fascinated by the whole process. The owners John and Cindy were super nice and full of tips on where to eat locally. The store... More

What a unique experience, creating your own scent! Both owners were in the shop during my visit and were so very nice. Creating my perfume was a fun and informative experience, and I love my new scent! There are also many items on display in the shop for purchase, so it's worth stopping in, even if you aren't interested in... More

I created a perfume last year. I loved it. However, I knocked the bottle over and broke it. Fortunately, they keep the "recipe" on file. When I visited this year, they were able to make up a new "batch". I was very happy
