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.

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

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

We had our journey planned to visit all about perfumes. 11:30 to 12:00 - the museum. The visit took 15 to 20 minutes, it was interesting but no more as we don't see anyone "working". Then the girl brought us to the shop. There it took us more time than the visit itself. I told her we were anyway going... More

Dear Ariane, We are sorry that the tour did not meet your expectations, and thank you for your time writing your review. It would be interesting to find out whether you visited during a week day or a week-end. Our laboratory is in view during the tour, but of course unfortunately the assistants work Monday to Friday... Regarding the shop... More

I wasn't overly bothered by a tour but was fascinated to see how I make my own perfume. Decided to plump for just that. The workshop wasn't hugely informative, but to be honest I didn't mind. The person helping did speak English, and the full range of raw materials available to us was brilliant. They help you break down your... More

Really enjoyed visiting the factory here. The tour is free and very informative - we learnt a lot very quickly! The tour guide was really good and spoke good English. We also got to try some of the perfumes after. Would recommend for a range of ages and both men and women.
