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.

Went there to make my own perfume as a birthday present. Fantastic experience. Loved the shop, the staff were so helpful and can't fault anything, unlike Molinard and Frogonard which we visited afterwards and were boring and unfriendly by comparison.

We visited Fragonard and molinard before galimard. Galimard is the least decorated factory and boutique amongst the three. But honestly if you care about branding then you shouldn't buy perfume from these three at all. Buy from Chanel Chloe will suffice. I was looking for a OEM perfume producer which uses good quality local ingredients and reasonable price. Galimard is... More

Thank you very much for your kind words and your visit. We just wish to correct your mention of our prices : price for 100ml Eau de Parfum is 39 Euros, 100ml Parfum costs 57 Euros, so indeed, very reasonable factory prices. We hope to welcome you again at Galimard, best regards, Parfums Galimard More

You walk in, make an appointment, return and your tour begins. You see the ingredients, films about how the ingredients are gathered, (lavender, for example). You see how the ingredients are refined, the "organ", looks like a church organ, where the expert works... You see the lab workers, in short you see how they make perfume! And the history is...

Very interesting tour with enthusiastic and helpful guide. Great introduction to how perfume has been made in the past and in the present day. Opportunity to buy afterwards but no pressure.

We had a very enjoyable experience here, and two new scents to take home with us. The staff were very helpful, and answered any questions we had about the process of making purfume/aftershave. They explained how to go about it, and allowed us to make two scents which certainly came out much better than we thought they would (considering we... More

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.
