Perfume creation workshop in Grasse

Full description

Galimard’ s Studio des Fragrances was developed to reveal the secret of perfume making which has until recently always been closed to the public.
You have no doubt dreamt of the day you would find your own personal fragrance.  One that is exclusively you. The scents and smells that will remind you of fond memories, of people, places and things which seduced you. A scent uniquely “you”, one which will distinguish you from all others.
In our ”Studio des Fragrances”,  our Perfumer will change you into a Perfume creator. Galimard has been the pioneer and recognized leader in this art since launching its first Studio des Fragrances in 1996.

Comfortably seated at your organ of 127 notes, you will discover the different base products and the techniques used to combine them harmoniously.

With an interactive and entertaining approach , our team of experts trained by the “Nose” will explain to you the architecture of a good perfume. It consists of  the “Top Note” (peak), Middle Note (heart note), and Base Note (fond note). Our experts will evaluate your unique olfactory sensitivities and explain the classifications of the large families of scents along with their typical components. Then, he or she will conclude by describing the basic principles of creating a harmonious, balanced and well rounded formula.
It is within this framework that you become capable of giving free rein to your imagination. You will now create your own unique fragrance, for woman, man or unisex. You will leave the workshop with a 100ml bottle personalized with your name or the name you have chosen for your new creation.  Your unique formula will be recorded in our confidential database for you to re-order at your convenience (in Parfum, Eau de Parfum, body cream, shower gel or scent diffuser).

Très bon atelier mais il serait bien de préciser sur le site que l’on doit donner un nom à notre parfum afin d’y réfléchir avant de venir !
