Owner description: Make your Own Perfume / Cologne: Choose from 3 perfume creation experiences, one taking 3 hours (reservation required), one taking 60-90 minutes (the most popular, reservations recommended) and one taking 20 minutes. The hardest part for many is naming their own fragrance. In the two longer experiences, in addition to your own bottle of perfume, you also receive a gift bag of Tijon products valued up to 45 euros. Tijon also offers an on-site boutique with its signature line of 23 French Caribbean fragrances, cosmetics and gifts. Hours are Monday-Friday from 9:30am to 5pm and other times by appointment. NOTE that we offer limited hours in Sept. and Oct. See our website for more information.

On a rainy Monday on our honeymoon, my husband and I stopped in to Tijon. Right away we were welcomed by the couple who owned the shop. They went out of their way to provide us an awesome experience! It was fun learning the science of fragrance and testing out different combinations to make the best scent. At the end, we got to name our creation and take it home with us. We were also sent home with some great pictures and a goody bag given to us by the owners. This experience is unique, fun, and creative. It's also a really great way to take a break from the heat and the sand. We loved it! The scent will definitely always stay with me and remind me of our amazing honeymoon.

We stayed not too far from Grand Case, where Tijon is located, so we decided to check it out since we never had experience creating parfumes. It was a lot of fun for me and my 11 year old son who created a parfume for his grandmother. They bottled our "creation", labled it and gave us a bag of gifts in addition.They also run a store were you can buy home-made soaps, lotions and souvenirs. Don't wait till you get tired of beaches and dining, go visit John at Tijon and you'll have an experience of a lifetime:)

TIJON/Perfume -- One of our favorite excursions in St. Maarten was Tijon's which is located at the end of Airport Road as it enters Grand Case town center across from Spiga restaurant. Tijon is a perfume museum/parfumerie lab/boutique that allows you to mix up your own personal scent. It was educational and fun to try out the almost 300 scents to make up your personal favorite. John, the owner, supervised your trial mixtures and he was very nice, informative and helpful. Well worth the visit - you can get more info from tijon.com if interested.

I have to say we truly enjoyed making perfume. My husband was going to go to beach but when he came inside he found himself getting into the lab coat sniffing and stirring up some oils. We made beautiful perfume and really enjoyed this different experience. We were amazed how many oils there were to smell and create perfume with. John and Cindi are both hospitable and their boutique is very inviting. They are great people and cannot wait to return next Feburary to see them both!!

If you have time, you should visit, but the parking lot was really small and we had trouble parking. When we entered, we weren't acknowledged. This basically shortened our trip there to about 5 minutes. The shop is small, but they really seem to be into what they do. If you are into perfume and high class product. This is one place you should not miss. If I was into this type of thing (or my wife), we probably would have given it 5 stars.
