Description:

Jean de Galimard, Lord of Seranon and related to the Count of Thorenc,...

Jean de Galimard, Lord of Seranon and related to the Count of Thorenc, lived in Grasse where in 1747 he created the PARFUMERIE GALIMARD. Founder of the corporation of "Glovemakers and Perfumers", he supplied the court of Louis "the well-beloved", King of France, with olive oils, pomades and perfumes, of which he invented the first formulas.

Two and a half centuries after its inception by its illustrious founder, continuing its Royal tradition from 1747, the Parfumerie Galimard remains a family owned and operated entreprise. Galimard's contemporary management style allows its creative branch to breathe life and love into its newest perfume masterpeices. Classical in the pursuit of perfection and harmony, Galimard cultivates inoovation and contemporary style to achieve each unique and sublime eternal creation.

We invite you to come and share this joy and passion with us :

* IN GRASSE : the visit will lead you through our Museum, laboratory and the conditioning rooms where the origin of perfumes can be traced. A thorough explanation of the extraction methods of aromatic raw materials, flowers, plants and aromatic woods is offered. You will also discover the work organ of the "composer" of perfumes, called the "Nose", and some of his secrets will be revealed to you.

* IN EZE-VILLAGE : our delightful team will inform and guide you throughout our Perfumery and explain the processes of extraction and fabrication. Stroll and discover our authentic Perfume Museum and our ancient traditional soap factory.

Both our establishments offer free guided visits 365 days a year.

All our products are priced as factory outlet.

* In GRASSE and in EZE-VILLAGE : come and create your own personal perfume!

Pioneed and recognized leader in this Art, Galimard opened its Studio des Fragrances in Grasse in 1997 and its Studio des Fragrances in Eze-Villlage in 2007.

In our Studio des Fragrances, we invite you to enter the world of personal perfume creation. With the assured knowledge of the Parfumeur, you will embark upon a voyage of personal discovery and emotional freedom in designing a fragrance that is uniquely yours.

We really enjoyed the tour and spent about 90euros in the shop. When we opened one of the perfumes we had bought we found that it was not up to standard. We wrote to Galimard and had a letter of apology asking us to return the product postage paid for an immediate refund. We did this in October and despite... More

Dear Mr & Mrs S., Our customer relations department did e-mail you on 12 January, I’m wondering whether you are receiving our e-mails (check your Spam folder), and will send a hard copy through the post. You have sent back a bottle that is half empty, how do you expect a refund based on the supposedly bad quality of the... More

Galimard has a few shops around the area. I went to the wrong place for workshop. The staff was very nice and drove me to the right place. I truly enjoyed the workshop to make my own perfume. At the end of the workshop, they indicated a number on the bottle so that you can email and order more in... More

I visited all the three perfumeries open to tourists in gasses and I found parfumerie galimard to have the most unique, less out-of-the-mill scents. The prices are also the most interesting imo.

Took this tour while on a cruise and it was one of our favorites. Did a short factory tour and learned about production of perfume. Had the opportunity to sample and purchase perfume from the factory which was very reasonably priced. Then visited second location where we made our own unique fragrances. Loved this experience. Also love the fact that... More

Had a great time when we visited in 2015. Our son wants us to buy him some on this trip of the perfume we made last time. Very fun!

Went here based on previous reviews I read on Tripadvisor. I originally planned to visit another parfumerie but changed my mind and am so glad I did. When we arrived we were told we had a half hour wait for an English tour so we went and sat outside to wait but within 10 mins the lady on reception came... More

After numerous visits to Grasse I finally visited Galimar Perfumery. Fragonard and Molinard are in the centre of Grasse but Molinard is a short bus ride on the 100. The tour was great fun and the perfumes that they produce are a little more current in their style than the other two companies. Well worth a visit, and entrance is... More
