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!

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!
It was just my friend and myself. We learned so much about perfume and I have to say it was a fabulous experience. Everyone should do this tour at least once.
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.
