I had the most girly experience I think I've ever had in this place! Imagine being able to create your own perfume, one that you specifically desire. Now imagine being able to re-order this, anytime you want, online. I signed up for the 90 minute class with an expert who taught me how to make my base, heart, and head... More

We experienced an "Atelier de création de parfums" and it was amazing! We created our own parfum, choosing among 100 different essences, and with the help of a professional. We left with a 50ml bottle of our own parfume! Besides, they took note about the "recipe" and we will be able to reorder it in the future! We are glad... More

It was great to be able to buy soap from the maker. The descriptions given by the guides are worth listening to.

Loved the building, it was a factory museum which looked quite authentic. Also, the tour was good and staff made much effort seeing it was the high season. Did feel as if the main purpose of the trip was to sell perfumes, but the staff was nice. Overall, it was time well spent, though the tour was a bit short.

A short bus ride from the train into Grasse delivers you to this Parfumery. It is not located in the same area as most of the attractions you would want to see in Grasse, but well worth finding. It is definitely worth the time to email ahead to participate in a class to make your own perfume. I found Molinard... More

I've been to Grasse several times and visited the other perfumery museums in the centre of town, but always wanted to see Molinard as it is the oldest of the three large perfumery companies in the town. Molinard is a bit out of the town centre, and poorly signposted, but there is a free shuttle bus that takes you there... More

Gratefully, we were simply glad to see Grasse generally and intended to have the tour as a side-event. If we had made it our specific destination, I would be extremely disappointed. No one greeted us. No information concerning a tour. Other visitors walking around aimlessly, looking for someone to question concerning having an informational tour However, we could not get...

very nice building, very pretty from the outside people working there absolutely not interested in the guests and their needs but only in selling their products to the tourists. Our question'when will there be the next guided tour?' was answered by: 'will take place in 75 minutes but only when there will be around 10 peolpe - we will not... More

What a great experience!! My husband's friend suggested we come here to create our own perfume. Not knowing what to expect, I booked a slot for my husband and I to attend a workshop in Molinard. Celine was amazing! She was very prompt when it came to corresponding with her! Upon getting there, we began our workshop. There were 90... More

We scheduled the hour long L'atelier Des Parfums workshop located in Grasse and this was one of the highlights of our stay in France. After a lot of walking, we found the workshop in what can be considered on the outskirts of Grasse. The train from Nice took about 20 minutes. Upon entering, there is a small museum type room...
