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

Was a cool and unique experience! Informative free tour took us through the process of how perfume is made, then picked up some very nice perfume!

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...

I absolutely adored this place. My now wife and I were treated to this by my sister whilst on the way to our wedding... we were doing a road trip, and they had been told it was brilliant. Brilliant it was. I made my cologne, and called it PK No. 5 , and my wife made her perfume. It's so... More

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.
