Make your Own Perfume / Cologne: Choose from over 300 oils to create your own perfume or cologne. 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€ . The most popular 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 21 French Caribbean fragrances, cosmetics and gifts. Hours are Monday-Friday from 9:30am to 5pm and other times by appointment. NOTE that we offer limited hours in Sept. and Oct.

This is something that you have to experience when you go to St. Martin! Cyndi and John were excellent hosts, and really took their time to walk you through the process of picking your fragrances. They are very knowledgeable, and you leave with a great understanding of making perfume! I would highly recommend this excursion to anyone visiting St. Martin!

My new wife and I were looking for unique experiences for our honeymoon and this was one of them. The staff was courteous, knowledgeable and friendly. The process was educational and easy for all, from a dunderhead like myself to my wife who has a degree in chemical engineering. You get a lot of bang for your buck!

You MUST do this when in St. Martin! I have made a perfume in the States, and this experience blew that one out of the water. You get so much for the price you pay. I was given expert advice on blending my perfume, while still playing a major role in what scents it comprised. I left with a delectable... More

It was a dream of mine to create my very own perfume and I finally got to do this on our last trip to St Martin! I took at one hour long class but took me about one and a half hours to work. I loved the entire experience and it was the highlight of my trip. My husband doesn't... More

I took my 2 girls ages 12 and 8 to Tijon after hearing about the perfumery from a coworker who had read John's book. From the minute we walked in the door, Cindi and John welcomed them with open arms. I was a truly unique experience and a highlight of our entire trip. The girls can't wait to return on... More

Our three girls participated in the perfume making experience while we were on St. Maarten. They absolutely loved being able to customize their own perfume and participate in making it. They cherish the beautiful bottle that they received with a gold label including their name and the name they gave their creation. The team there was very helpful and fun... More

Everything I read about this was absolutely right…from the moment we arrived, it was the friendliest and most well organized experience. They made us feel so welcome and did a wonderful job of guiding us every step of the way. I strongly recommend this tour for all ages!

This three hour experience was a highlight if our trip. The hosts were incredibly friendly and patient, the experience of making the scents interesting and fun, and you get a great goodie bag alongside your bespoke perfume/aftershave. My husband really enjoyed it too, though he hadn't expected to! Try it, you won't be disappointed, even if just to gave your... More

My daughter discovered this place looking thru one of the local magazines, and now I take them there every time we go to St Maarten. Even my eight year old grand daughter enjoyed it. As for me, I enjoy walking thru town while they are there. But I always get back early so I can enjoy the smell of the... More
