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.

John and Cindy do a fantastic job of explaining about perfumes and colognes....bases, notes, etc. We went as 2 couples. The guys were alittle reluctant at first, but we convinced them to go with us. All of us had a GREAT time creating our own special fragrance. My friend also bought the lotion with her perfume mix. My husband bought... More

This stop was the high point of our 8 day cruise. I was glad I had searched outside of the Royal Caribbean web site. Not only did John prepare some outstanding gift bags for us with cologne, suncreen, soap and lip balm, he patiently guided us on our journey to make our own perfume. With the lab coats, beakers, amber... More

Went on a 14 day cruise with a day in St Marteen. Decided to try something different with my wife and booked the excursion at Tijon. By far one of the absolute best excursions we have ever done! They are amazing! The process is fascinating and getting me to create your own cologne or perfume was incredibly fun. You get... More

After reading the many great reviews about this perfumery we decided it would be worthwhile visiting it. We chose the mix and match course which is just over an hour. Unfortunately John was away but we had a great time with Marilyn and Mili. We had fun learning about perfumes and what goes into them. Definitely one of the more... More

St Maarten is a wonderful island with tons of water sports/adventures. But if you are looking to do something different one afternoon try out the Tijon Perfume Creation Experiences! The staff are very friendly and explain everything and make you feel very comfortable. From the moment we put on our white lab coats to create our own special blends until... More

My husband and I were looking for something different to do on our recent cruise to St. Martin. We'd done all the usual touristy things and wanted something different. I came across a review of Tijon and mentioned it to my daughter and her husband, who were cruising with us. Based on that, we decided to give it a try.... More

What a fabulous way to spend the afternoon. We had fun and actually engaged our neurons. My husband enjoyed our visit also. One may think of making perfume as a 'non-masculine' activity, but the process is science and art. Bring a camera as the hosts will take photos while you are 'working'. We did the Perfume 101 which was good... More

My husband and I have been going to St. Martin for 33 years but this was our first visit to Tijon. We took the introductory class and had a wonderful time learning just enough about base notes and top notes and the history of perfume to have a delightful time designing our own signature scents! The owner and instructor, John,... More
