Owner description: 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.

We recently did a Made in St. Maarten offshore excursion from our NCL cruise. We visited a rum store, Tijon, and had a food demonstration at a beachfront restaurant from a well-known chef on the island. We loved Tijon....our only complaint being the tour there was much too short. The owner John gave a wonderful overview, and the group had... More

While on a Disney Cruise last week, my family went to Tijon to create our own cologne/perfume! We had the best time! The husband and wife team who owned the establishment were thorough and friendly. We learned a lot about different smells, oils, and concentrates. My 12 and 11 year old duaghters loved it and couldn't wait to show their... More

This was a great excursion. We booked through our cruise line, after reading the reviews here, but until you've done it, you won't understand the fun of creation. This is a small class, so you will get as much attention as you need. We were given an overview of building perfumes out of basic scents, how scents work together, what... More

My wife and I waited for years before we finally stopped to see this place. November 2014 I finally made her stop in and check it out. She loved it! She created her own perfume with the help of the very kind man behind the counter who was the owner. He made her feel very comfortable which was great because... More

I booked this event through our cruise ship, a new excursion for the NCL so they didn't know too much about what is expected of participants. Well this was soon much fun! John, who owns the perfumerie and his staff were so welcoming. They introduced us to how perfumes are made. They have a show room that you can go... More

What a fun experience! Was about 30 minutes from the pier but it was fun to get to see some of the island. I felt like a scientist while I was creating my own fragrance. Tijon also has their own fragrances for purchase. Well worth the trip and the goody bag was great. If you have time visit this great... More

What a fun time! Something totally out of the ordinary. Making your own perfume is quite an experience. The two children (maybe around 8 and 10) who were there at the same time were well treated even though you would never expect to see them there - they loved being able to concoct something totally their own. Well worth the... More

My husband and I decided to take the Mix & Match class one overcast morning. We are SO glad that we did! We first found out about Tijon on tripadvisor and with such rave reviews, we didn't want to miss out. John and Cyndi were so welcoming and patient. We enjoyed leaning about how to compose different perfumes and the... More

We had somewhat rainy weather in the forecast and didn't want the day to go do waste. We read about Tijon on Trip Advisor and in magazines, and I decided to book the full 101 package for my husband and I. It was such a good plan; we learned a lot, got to spend time with the owners who were... More

I've been wanting to take their class ever since they opened this little gem! My husband and I decided that this was the year, and this was a special thing to do for his birthday!
