This was a bucket list item for me, and this two hour workshop did not disappoint. The staff was incredibly patient with my questions and it was fun to put together mine own one-of-a-king perfume. The only thing do be aware of is that this is not an informational workshop, there is no "history of perfume making" it is just... More

My husband and I did the one hour workshop where the "nose" (perfume expert) works with you while you create your own perfume. We LOVED it. It would have been worth it for the experience alone--we were in heaven as we sniffed 90 different perfume notes to figure out what we did and didn't like. The "nose" was a wonderful... More

We drove from Nice specifically to visit Molinard so that my wife could take their one-hour custom parfume creation course. Working with Paula, the 'nose' from Molinard, she created her own signature parfume. My wife describes this as an unforgettable experience and all her friends are very envious. Paula was fantastic in explaining the process and showing patience in helping... More

After finding a place to park we walked up to the house of molinard. It was a beautiful looking building from the Outside. When we got inside a lady greeted us along with 4 others that walked in behind us. She then told us she will do the tour only in French. She gave us a tiny booklet to explain... More

My husband and I visited Molinard location in Grasse in March 2016. I love everything perfumery so our visit was a real treat for me! The place itself is infinitely charming inside out, featuring a little museum with samples of bottles and packaging used at Molinard over the years, equipment, furniture and numerous jars with dried flowers that smell heavenly....

I have always wanted to blend a perfume for myself. I made reservations before going to France on the Molinard website and spent a lovely afternoon learning how to and blending single notes to make my own fragrance. Oh and when I was finished the shop with Molinard fragrances and gifts was wonderful for gift buying. A once in a... More

Went there for a "create your own perfume" experience. We were immediately entered. It was a very nice and unique experience. About 15 minutes and you get to create your own 30ml bottle of perfume which you can take. The price is a little bit high - 30 euro.

I know we are in France so the tour should be predominantly French, but the tour guide refused to give any information in English even though she had perfect English. We didn't ask, it was the Dutch and Spanish in the party, who understood less of the French than we did. The 'make your own' fragrance was good for the... More
