We went to the museum/factory first and then drove up the street to the atelier to make perfume. At the museum we did the group tour ... interesting for adults but pretty boring for our kids. On the other hand, the atelier was a giant success -- beyond our expectations -- for all family members. The atelier work stations were... More

One of the oldest parfumeries in perfume capitol of the world. Although little smaller than Fragonard or Menard, it is none the less as important and famous. We have to thank our East Tour guide/driver, Mr. Alex for bringing us to this magnificent place. Our museum tour guide (Marianne?) told us about start and history of Galimard and showed us... More

Our family made their own perfume and we (even two teenagers!) all were surprised how much we enjoyed it....it ended up being one of our favorite activities on a 10 day holiday on the French Riviera! Highly recommend for the entire family!!!!

This was an amazing tour! Very interesting for all ages. It moves very quickly and the guides are engaging so even kids will enjoy. At the end of the tour you can smell some newly developed scents and purchase if you like. The little store at the end is a highlight and don't miss out on the face cream that... More

My husband and I participated in the class where we made our own fragrance and we really enjoyed it. It is interesting to learn how they make fragrance and where the different scents originate. The class included a 100ml bottle of perfume, but I was leery that the oils we were using were of the purest form. Real perfume is... More

My two adult daughters and I had such a wonderful time making our own perfume at Parfumerie Galimard in Grasse. My husband, who joined us as a guest, also had fun. We learned a bit about the perfume making process and ended up with a bottle of perfume that we personally created. It was well worth the 45 euros fee.... More

I signed up to make the perfume (45 euro including 100 ml of scent at the end) and my husband accompanied me (10 euro). It was a lot of fun and very interesting to smell all the bottles arranged in the "organ." Having a helper was a good thing to monitor the level in the measuring device as I did... More

Take the 600 bus from the station in Cannes and you won't miss it! I was so pleased to make it here! We took a free tour and learned some great facts about how perfume is made and how it came to be so popular. This perfumerie is the oldest in France...and I can't remember, but I think she said...
