You might think a perfume workshop is just for the ladies. Oh contrare mon fare! Learning the science and formula of how to make perfumes was a lot of fun, and should be at the top of the list with the tower and the arch when you go to Paris.
The instructor was very knowledgable regarding perfumes but I had wanted to learn more about how perfumes are made, the various properties of essences, etc. This hands-on workshop allows you to formulate your own custom blend with a generous-sized bottle to take home, plus 3 samples. I would have preferred a more interactive workshop however still recommend this one as it is conducted in a small group in a lovely private home whose neighborhood is near the Eiffel Tower. Time it right and go to the Tower after the workshop!
Highly recommend this workshop! Great venue in a Parisian apartment. It was fun and so unique. I had read earlier that you receive 1 bottle and had the ability to purchase the other scents if you wish and we did, they were a great value! My daughter and I will remember this experience for ever. Thx
This was the first time I enrolled and it was such a treat! I really enjoyed learning about the chemistry behind creating fragrances. Marina was instrumental in assuring the right fragrance tones were selected to complete my formulas. She was also very patient while answering many questions, and making sure each student in the class received personal time/attention. I would totally recommend this class to anyone looking to experience something really special while visiting Paris. Her apartment is just lovely and provides the perfect back drop for this Parisian event!
My daughter and I enjoyed an afternoon learning about the perfume industry and how to mix fragrant oils to make our own perfume. We both made three samples then chose one which our guide mixed and placed into a perfume spray bottle for us to take home. Extra bottles and fancier bottles are available for purchase at a very reasonable price if you want more. The class/tour was held in a private residence but it was easy to find and the guide was very nice and spoke English very well. We were very pleased with this tour.
This workshop was wonderful! It was a great small group setting in a beautiful apartment. We had the freedom to experiment with different essences and ratios. Definitely one of the highlights of my trip to Paris!
