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 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

One of a kind experience!! Ana was so attentive and patient with us and expertly guided us through the experience of designing our own fragrance.

We have been shopping at Tijon for years. The owners are very friendly and helpful. We always enjoy the new scents each time we go. This trip, I got the new one Tres Beaux. I love it. I have never taken the class. One day I will. We only go for a week, so I love to go to the... More

Have been going to St Maarten for several years and this has been on the "to do" list; so, got to check it off on this trip. Already looking forward to my return in 2016. First, there aren't many places in the world that offer this opportunity of composing your own fragrance using the same process as the mega-manufacturers. The... More

My sister and I visited Tijon to make our own perfume. We didn't have time to take the one or three hour perfume making class, so we opted for the fifteen minute deal. It was great fun, but also overwhelming as you have a choice of 300 scents to choose from. Once you pick your base scent, the "mixologist" comes... More

I had read about Tijon before we visited the island, but our week seemed to take over on us. After we had visited another attraction my husband remembered that I wanted to visit the perfume company. It was late in the afternoon and I was not hopeful that we would be able to do anything. We were greeted at the... More

While my sweetheart and I were in St Maarten in March we won a welcome gift from her Royal Islander La Plage timeshare. It entitled the bearer to "create their own perfume or cologne". So while we were driving around the island for the week, we stopped in Grand Case to find the Tijon Perfume Experience. It is run by... More

It was really interesting to visit here. Learn lots about perfume and you can even make your own. Highly recommend. They even replace bad product. When we got home one of the perfumes that we bought was clearly bad. We just e-mailed them and they mailed a new one, no questions asked. Great service.

We just took a cruise with Disney Cruise Line and decided to do this tour in Saint Marten. It was well worth the experience!! I thought I would be overwhelmed by all of the scents and choices but John and the rest of the staff at Tijon broke it all down into manageable steps and made it not seem overwhelming... More
