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. I highly recommend if on St Martin to travel to Grand Case and go make your own perfume. You will be treated like royalty and once done a champagne toast with the owner directly. Very... More

My daughter and I went and had our own private perfume making experience and it was AMAZING. We had so much fun and it was so interesting to learn about perfume making. I had been to ST. Martin previously and I had really wanted to participate in the perfume making experience but never had a chance. John and his wife... More

This was a very special excursion that may daughter and I took. It started with a very knowledgeable and friendly driver named Rick. He gave us laughs and a history lesson as we traveled to our destination. Once at the store, we met Cyndi and John and we were on our way to making our very own perfume. It was... More

My sister and I were planning to go from our day in port from an NCL ship. It wasn't an available excursion, so we didn't make a reservation. Big mistake - it IS an excursion available from other ships. We were initially told no, but when John saw my sad face (it was my sister's birthday present!), he squeezed us... More

This is the second time that I have paid a visit to Tijon, and it is always worth the time. Cyndi & John are the perfect hosts and experts on perfume. It is a great place to escape the summer sun or to make use of a rainy day. You can go into Tijon to make your own fragrance or... More

What an absolutely AMAZING experience & reasonably priced. I spent 1 hour & learned a bit about creating a scent-then I got to actually create my own. To go home with my own unique fragrance---doesn't get better than that. My husband even found 1 that Tijon had created that is so far from what he normally wears that he bought... More
