This was one of the highlights of our trip! It was the most fun and interesting experience I've ever had. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and I have a signature cologne developed just for me! I've gotten raves on the scent, and will definitely be re-ordering it. I would recommend this to anyone going to Nice.
I thoroughly enjoyed this experience, from the brief history of Molinard and its perfume making, to the smelling and choosing base, heart and top note scents that I liked, to working with the girl to create a combination of these scents that I loved, to pipetting the perfume into the bottle myself. The lady who was looking after me made sure I was comfortable, understood what I was supposed to be doing and regularly checked on me to see if I had any questions or needed any help. she also looked up the breakdown of other perfumes that I liked which was really interesting. in the end I had my own perfume, which weeks later I'm totally in love with. it's a completely unique experience and makes a fantastic souvenir. Would totally recommend this!
My 21 year old daughter and I made our own perfumed and loved it. The people were very helpful and did not try to push us into buying more perfumes which was a pleasant surprise.We thoroughly enjoyed our time. Just a clarification, we made reservations for a particular day but were allowed to come into the shop anytime during the day that was convenient for us. That was also very nice. It let us enjoy our day with no pressure to be somewhere at a particular time.
It is a good experience for one who is interested in this. They teach the basics of making perfume and then they let you select the scents that you like to make your own. It is fascinating to smell the different combinations of scents and discerning which ones go together.
The staff were extremely accommodating even though I mucked up our workshop dates they were still able to have us in the workshop. I created a beautiful perfume, it was an experience I will never forget
My 7 year old LOVED this! She had so much fun creating her own perfume. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Wonderful mother daughter activity.
I loved this workshop it was fun and I left with a bottle of perfume that I love. The presenter was patient and happy to answer our questions. I hadn't realised how many fragrances combine to create a perfume. I would definitely recommend this experience.
This was hands down a must do experience! The ladies at Molinard explain to you how a perfume is created and leave you to perouse and choose your favourite scents before they come up with some options and you choose your favourite combination before YOU drop all the scents into the bottle!
great experience. Came away with a surprising scent that is really wonderful. Highly recommended. Lovely helpers who spoke mostly good English.
Fun, relaxing and a great way to a start of my morning in sunny Nice! I was the only one in this morning class so I got all the attention and focus on the making and learning about perfumery! Ourlene was absolutely magnificent, knowledgeable and patient! Making my own perfume was a great experience which I remember every time I wear it!
This was just outstanding--a great experience for my daughter and me. We got a lot of individual assistance from Mariana as we formulated our fragrances, and it's a beautiful store/museum. I highly recommend this as something unique to do while in Nice.
Awesome!! Worth every penny! I will certainly be refilling my creation very often, my perfume is just perfection!
I was torn between 3 or 4 stars. I really enjoyed making a bottle of perfume that I designed, but I had expected more history behind the making of the perfume. Instead we started off smelling all of these fragrances and the expert determined the amount that you would use to put your fragrance together. If you are thorough and want to smell everything...plan on 2 hours.

My tour was hampered by the fact that there was a photographer in the shop taking photos for a magazine, so I felt I did not get the full experience. We seemed to have missed the history lesson and went straight into the perfume making... which I enjoyed very much. I left with a BEAUTIFUL personal fragerance and I would definately recommend this to anyone.
We pretty much just sat and picked out different smells for most of the workshop. From our selections, the instructor for lack of a better word arranged the scents that worked together. I had two arrangements to choose from, and my daughters had three. Once we picked our favorite, the instructor created a formula. We used droppers to blend the scents from the formula, and voila', we had created perfume. I would have liked some information on why the scents worked together, and the history of perfume making, as stated in the description. There was very little information given and we were left alone to pick out scents for most of the workshop. We were happy with the final result, but the perfume disappeared within an hour of putting it on.
We spent a nice two hours making our own perfume. I found the information on the history and process of perfume making a bit weak. We just sat in a room and smelt different essences. Then we were told to put in 2 gramms of this scent and five gramms of that scent - and that was it.
Unfortunately we did not get to go there because we were on a cruise ship and it was tethered and they did not let us off the boat due to rough seas. Poor us, stranded on a cruise ship! Ha ha.
