Description: Jean de Galimard, Lord of Seranon and related to the Count of Thorenc...
Jean de Galimard, Lord of Seranon and related to the Count of Thorenc, lived in Grasse where in 1747 he created the PARFUMERIE GALIMARD. Founder of the corporation of "Glovemakers and Perfumers", he supplied the court of Louis "the well-beloved", King of France, with olive oils, pomades and perfumes, of which he invented the first formulas. Two and a half centuries after its inception by its illustrious founder, continuing its Royal tradition from 1747, the Parfumerie Galimard remains a family owned and operated entreprise. Galimard's contemporary management style allows its creative branch to breathe life and love into its newest perfume masterpeices. Classical in the pursuit of perfection and harmony, Galimard cultivates inoovation and contemporary style to achieve each unique and sublime eternal creation. We invite you to come and share this joy and passion with us : * IN GRASSE : the visit will lead you through our Museum, laboratory and the conditioning rooms where the origin of perfumes can be traced. A thorough explanation of the extraction methods of aromatic raw materials, flowers, plants and aromatic woods is offered. You will also discover the work organ of the "composer" of perfumes, called the "Nose", and some of his secrets will be revealed to you. * IN EZE-VILLAGE : our delightful team will inform and guide you throughout our Perfumery and explain the processes of extraction and fabrication. Stroll and discover our authentic Perfume Museum and our ancient traditional soap factory. Both our establishments offer free guided visits 365 days a year. All our products are priced as factory outlet. * In GRASSE and in EZE-VILLAGE : come and create your own personal perfume! Pioneed and recognized leader in this Art, Galimard opened its Studio des Fragrances in Grasse in 1997 and its Studio des Fragrances in Eze-Villlage in 2007. In our Studio des Fragrances, we invite you to enter the world of personal perfume creation. With the assured knowledge of the Parfumeur, you will embark upon a voyage of personal discovery and emotional freedom in designing a fragrance that is uniquely yours.

Visiting lovely scenic Grasse and making my own signature perfume was a highlight of my time in Provence. Note that the Parfumerie Galimard near the main center of town is a small perfume shop.

We were delightful challenged to create our own perfume. There were numerous oils to smell- some better than others- in a 3 step process your personalized, named perfume. Not an easy task even with the help of our husbands! But the end result is a perfume created by us for us! They will keep the formula on file for refills.... More

We have been to Perfumerie Galimard before and returned to buy some more lavender oil, so we did not have the tour this time. Good service, plenty of perfume, soap, oil and other smelly product to buy. Worth a visit if you have not been here before or if you wish to buy something perfumish.

Personally I regret that I bought in hurry in this place some parfumes because just a few foots away located is more impressive and well known Fragonard where the prices more attractive and a lecture of guid was more interesting as well.

We came with our kids, and paid 45 $ euros for each to make their own perfume. The activity takes about 2 hours, and consists of a staged process for building a personal fragrance, combining different types of essences. We all enjoyed this tremendously, and the end product was 100 ml of a surprisingly delicious product. They keep the mix... More

I and my wife attended the perfume making workshop last week. It cost €45 each. There was a nose which gave us great advice. We also had an assistant who came around to each of us often throughout the workshop. She spoke fluent English. It was a great experience which lasted about 2 hours. We are both glad we did... More

I've always wanted to make my own perfume and finally got my chance! It was lots of fun, the "nose" was very helpful and both my husband and I came away with really nice frangrances that are unique to us! I'm sure I will be ordering more when the 100ml bottle runs out.

We travel for three hours to visit Galimard in Eze trusting what they propose on their web site. Unfortunatly, sellers there told us that the factory is just in Grasse, impossible to see how they produce soaps or parfums: this is just a shop with a ( little ) museum! So, nothing to visit there....Yes, it's possibile to live the... More
