Great fun , my wife is looking forward to running out of her newly made fragrance just so she can order a new Bach for Paris . Give yourselves plenty of time to get there as not the easiest place to find . Or taxi . Great un even for a hubby
Awesome experience. Really nice to be in a private home. Thoroughly recommend - a true PARIS experience.
Easily one of my best experiences in Paris! After all, how many people can say they made their own signature scent IN PARIS?? This is a perfume lover's dream! Really appreciated the small, intimate setting.
This was our one of our favourite afternoons in Paris. My sister and I love perfume and to make our own was such fun. My husband loves the aftershave I created for him as well. It was so interesting to learn all about the notes that go into one perfume. Be ready to smell many lovely scents and enjoy . The location of the building was beautiful. We walked around the neighbourhood after the workshop and shopped.
This was such a unique experience and the highlight of my trip. The apartment and neighborhood are beautiful, and the hostess was lovely. I came home with my own fragrance and the formula so that I can reorder as needed. Being able to understand French was helpful. The hostess does speak English, and would translate as needed, but most of the session is in French.
This is amazing experience. Such amazing perfume.
I purchased 4 bottles at excellent price.
My own made perfume.
My ten year old daughter and I had an absolutely wonderful experience at the perfume workshop! Tons of supplies, lots of background knowledge, host was extremely friendly and helpful. I highly recommend this worksop! The scent I "created" during the workshop is one of my favorites! I get compliments on it every time I wear it; my friends are so disappointed they cannot buy it anywhere!
What an amazing and interesting workshop - it was the highlight of the trip - if you are looking for something unique to do in Paris, this is for you!
My daughter and I did this together. We had a great time and we love our personal scents that we created!
This was even better than we could have hoped for -- we learned so much and had plenty of time to try the scents and create our own. The teacher was extremely knowledgeable and very helpful in letting us explore what we could create with the many scents offered. We had a ball!
Had a great time and made some fantastic perfume was a great way to fill in an afternoon and learn something new
A charming location for a very informative and relaxed session creating perfume in a variety of styles. Highly recommended for beginners or enthusiasts.
This was such an awesome experience! My friend and I loved very minute of it.
It was unforgettable, unbelievable and wonderful experience ! We went together with my husband and he liked it very much too. All the participants created three kinds of perfume, our professor Marina explained to us the main laws of classic scent compositions and answered all our questions. She spoke English and translated to French because we have English-French -Russian group. Marina had to speak much but she was very friendly and enthusiastic. The atmosphere was very pleasant. It was fun but it was serious too. Time passed very quickly. We took one perfume free and bought one for 20€. Now when I use the scent I get lots of compliments. Marina, thank you very much! Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year!

thoughly enjoyed it. wonderful way to spend a couple of hours in paris. will never make a perfumier but what fun. Marina fantastic.
I wanted to find something different for my teenage daughter and I to do in our first trip to Paris. I'm so glad I found this workshop! It was worth every cent. Marina was very professional and we learned a lot and made 3 of our own scents to take home. Great experience and memory oF Par
Lots of fun for a girls afternoon, who knew there was so much to learn about smells. Lovely experience, would definitely recommend to others.
Loved it . Learnt a lot. I was really surprised to receive a large bottle of my own fragrance to take home. If you are male or female and wear fragrance this is a must do in Paris.
This tour was amazing! Love a scent that has been discontinued? You can make it... Or make your own based on your preferences. Even my husband loved making his own cologne!
An one-of-a-kind workshop! I was looking to do something a little bit different in Paris and was glad I booked this.
The location is at the perfumer's home, located about 10 mins walk from Trocadero metro station. There were 5 of us (2 local parisians, 2 americans and moi) and the workshop started with us sniffing away different perfumes and being explained a little bit of the history of that kind of perfume and their contents. We then made 3 different perfumes on our own from about 30 bottles of different fragrance essences, which was great fun! Each of us take home a full size bottle of our choice and can order extra bottles should we wish to do. Lovely way to spend an afternoon!
This was such an amazing experience! The perfume studio is in a lovely part of town and the studio itself is housed in a chic Parisienne apartment. Mariana was a great host and taught us a lot about how to create a balance with your scent. We were able to make 3 scents and get one full sized bottle, with the option of purchasing additional bottles. I, of course, had to buy all 3, and all my friends back home in the States are so jealous and want to make their own perfumes! The experience in a whole was lovely, and I really loved the certificate diploma I received afterward, stating I am now an "Apprentice Perfumer"!
Once we actually found the place, and were able to be let in, the workshop was wonderful! We really enjoyed our time and the experience of making our own fragrance. It would be advisable to provide the door code with reservation, clear directions of the location (the building DOES NOT HAVE A NUMBER ON IT) and where to locate the Studio (through the entrance, to your right, down the hall, through the door, up the stairs, on the 1st floor). We didn't get in there until 1030 for our 10am workshop. A contact phone number would also be helpful on the reservation - we were standing outside the building with no email access to obtain any additional information from Viator, but we could have called your tour desk if we had a contact number on the reservation.
