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.

The Parfumerie Galimard on Route Cannes in Grasse France is wonderful and the most learning experience I found in Cannes, in general. So good, I went to Grasse to attend two classes at their studio - which I wrote about at length here on TripAdvisor. They teach you top construct your own perfume in Grasse and keep your formula you... More

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...

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
