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

On a company trip with my husband this was one of the excursions we booked. I wasn't too excited about it at first, it was my husband's idea. It was so much fun. Something fun for a group. He was actually the only male there. I made the best perfume. I love it, I wore it all summer. They have... More

During my trip to St. Martin, I had the opportunity to create my very own signature perfume and learn a lot about scents at the same time. I took the 3-hr class and had an absolute blast. Marilyn is very knowledgeable and offered great suggestions. I highly recommend this experience.

Two friends and I booked the Mix-n-Match fragrance making class in September. I've been looking forward to doing this for so long! Cindy and John were just amazing...so kind, helpful and willing to share their knowledge. I created my own fragrance, and had a matching lotion made up as well. THEN, I found out that I can just take my... More

This is my second review of Tijon because I could not come to the island without coming to the class. John and Cyndi Berglund have actually improved and refined their customer experience! Please consider what kind of business has 229 reviews, of which 214 are Excellent and the remaining 12 are Very Good! That should say it all. Of the... More

This was by far the most interesting and exciting excursion we have done. The lab is very professional. Marilyn was our instructor and she was GREAT. My wife, sister-in-law and I are very inquisitive and this excursion did not disappoint. We had over 300 different oils/fragrances to work with, the enjoyment of getting to smell and make something was exceptional.... More

My wife and I have visited St Martin for over 20 years. Traveling down this year in August, we noticed in the Destinations Magazine something new and different.. The place was called Tijon, where you invent your own scent. We were staying at the Towers where we own timeshare, and inquired information regarding Tijon at the activities desk. A call... More

I had the pleasure of making personal perfume for my sister, daughter and myself and the experience was like none I had ever done before.
