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.

Took my 13 year old for a 2 hour make-a-perfume-session. Bit concerned about 2 hours, but she (and I) really enjoyed it. Staff were really helpful, we learned a lot and came out with a personal perfume. Expensive (55E) but worth it.

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...

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.

The Parfumerie Galimard on Route Cannes in Grasse France is wonderful and the most learning experience I found in Cannes, in general. So good, I went to Grasse to attend two classes at their studio - which I wrote about at length here on TripAdvisor.

We visited Fragonard and molinard before galimard. Galimard is the least decorated factory and boutique amongst the three. But honestly if you care about branding then you shouldn't buy perfume from these three at all. Buy from Chanel Chloe will suffice. I was looking for a OEM perfume producer which uses good quality local ingredients and reasonable price. Galimard is... More

Thank you very much for your kind words and your visit. We just wish to correct your mention of our prices : price for 100ml Eau de Parfum is 39 Euros, 100ml Parfum costs 57 Euros, so indeed, very reasonable factory prices. We hope to welcome you again at Galimard, best regards, Parfums Galimard More

You walk in, make an appointment, return and your tour begins. You see the ingredients, films about how the ingredients are gathered, (lavender, for example). You see how the ingredients are refined, the "organ", looks like a church organ, where the expert works... You see the lab workers, in short you see how they make perfume! And the history is...

Very interesting tour with enthusiastic and helpful guide. Great introduction to how perfume has been made in the past and in the present day. Opportunity to buy afterwards but no pressure.
