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

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.

I had been here previously, but took my 12 y,o. son here this year, to make his own perfume. Like I had on previous occasions, my son enjoyed himself immensely, and was very proud of his concoction. I must say that I do prefer Molinard, both in terms of the building itself (quite beautiful in parts) and also in their... More

I had booked this course online a couple of days prior. At 45euro it was great value. The course was fun, interesting and informative. My wife and I made our own perfumes, mine was a gift for my Mum and suffice to say, I reckon I could be a perfumer, my mother loved my creation which was nice. Of the... More
