“unique souvenir”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2014

I signed up for this based on wanting to always try to do one of a kind things on my vacations. John emailed me back each time very quickly to give me updates and helpful info on traveling with your created perfume etc. I did my class with 20 or so students from Tortola and it was so much fun! It isnt as hard as you might think, but you do have to know generally what type of scents you like or else you will be there all day choosing. They give you the bottle of perfume with the name you chose and soap and a travel scent. So worth the money and they were great patient teachers with a large group as what we had. I enjoyed it very much.

“everything they make is top quality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

You can take a course in perfume making or buy one of their scents. They offer all natural insect repellant, sunscreen and after sun. There are fancy cosmetic shops on the island where you can spend a lot more for a lot less. The expert advice from the folks that make the product is priceless.

“A fun and informative experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2014

I took my daughter and two granddaughters, ages eight and ten, to invent our own special scent at Tijon Perfumerie's mix and match class. What fun !!!! The shop is immaculate, and the owners welcoming and helpful. We had been to a class last summer in Grasse France, that did not compare.We all voted this experience a highlight of our vacation.
