Celeste and Vanessa were very friendly and helpful in guiding me through the perfume making experience. Because I had so much fun in making my own perfume I would definitely recommend this experience if you are ever in La Jolla.

Hello, the cab ride is 30 minutes from the Port to our perfume laboratory. No shuttle service but you can easily catch a cab at the port. It will be totally worth your time and the highlight of your trip!
