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€.

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! What a great experience. We did the 101 Class (2-3 hrs.) and what a delightful learning experience it was! John and Cyndi were so helpful... More

I read about Tijon in Destination magazine on the flight down to St. Martin. Made a reservation for the 101 class (2-3 hours) at the last minute (a day before we were scheduled to leave the Island and go back to Manhattan). Normally the shop isn't open on a Saturday but luckily there was a bus tour stopping there and... More

September of 2014 my hubby and I were on a Norweigan cruise in which Saint Martin was one of our stops. I looked through some pamphlets and knew this was a definite stop we had to make. We took a taxi to Grand Case and found this little gem a few steps from the beach. The owners were out of... More

On Jan. 2, I spent a delightful hour mixing my own signature fragrance. I couldn't decide on my favourite so I ended up with two - I still love them both! It was a very interesting, educational and unique experience - I would do it all over again next time in St. Martin.

My husband and I visited tijon in Dec 2014, at the Grand Case in Saint Martin (French side) and did the 1 hour perfume making class. It was amazing. John and Cindy the owners were so helpful, professional and generous. They made us really feel welcomed. They provided all the necessary information on how to create a perfume. We received... More

I highly recommend taking a workshop at Tijon during your visit to beautiful St Martin. I personally took the "Mix and Match" class and was thoroughly impressed by the level of professionalism, knowledge, product quality and overall value of the experience. The owners, John and Cyndi, were wonderful from start to finish. You won't regret your decision!

I've been meaning to do this for a long time and my mother's birthday presented an excellent opportunity to create our signature scents. We took the 101 class (the longer one) and did not see those 3 hours go by. It was a 5 star experience from beginning to end. It's not just for visitors, this local enjoyed it tremendously.... More
