Really loved our visit here and making our own perfume with the help of expert staff...really interesting - this would be fun to do with a group - and of course you take away a lovely memory of your day in the form of a bottle of Eau de Toilette. Highly recommended.

We stopped by Galimard after already making our own perfume at another fragrance house in Grasse. However, this experience (at Galimard) was far superior and involved a much more complex process and mix. We both thoroughly enjoyed the process and the results. The price was reasonable considering the time and depth of the class, plus the size of the perfume... More

Visiting Galimard was an unexpected delight and the highlight on our day to trip to Eze. Touring the parfumerie was interesting, but creating our own scent was amazing. Our guide (the "nose") presented us with an array of base note scents from which to choose, while explaining that this fragrance would serve as the foundation for the final perfume. After... More

This factory is similar to the others here in Grasse (Fragonard and Molinard). We could buy some of their products (soaps and perfumes), but honestly - in their shop at the entrance of Grasse - the staff wasn't as helpful as it was in other factories.

I wanna thank Martine for letting my wife and I know about Perfume Process and some stories about Perfume Makers. I visited the old Parfumerie in Grasse and was amazed by the quality and the products.... few steps from the place I live. If you have the chance to drive few seconds from the main factory, you can create your... More

Now that a few years have past, I feel I need to tell travelers how much I have enjoyed the perfume, cologne and experience this attraction gave me. Today I am wearing the colonge my son made at Parfumerie Galimard over 2 years ago. I have ordered and reordered the perfume I made several times in perfume, cream and body... More

I went on the 45 euro two hour perfume course with my daughter (you can bring a friend for 10 euro). We LOVED it! There was one instructor per 5 participants or so and he was excellent. Explained about base, heart and peak notes then we had to smell and pick faves and made perfume! We named it and got... More

My friends and I enjoyed this workshop to create our own perfumes. Everyone at the establishment was nice and professional, but I wish we had gotten more information on how perfume is made or a tour of the factory.

Awesome day longcourse on making my own perfume..I enrolled for a “certificate” course, with a bottle of wine thrown in :) I mean just incase....least something to fall back on. On entering the workshop, I was escorted to my “station” where I had an array of tiny bottles of fragrances, beakers, burettes, measures and stirrers spread out and the class... More

Do not use this company if you are interested in learning about perfume-making, especially if you have professional aspirations. Speak to the Tourist Office in Grasse and they will recommend a good company. We, unfortunately,found out this too late after signed up for a €3,000 3-day seminar. A complete waste of our time and money.
