Great experience if you enjoy smells and scents. Had previously done a (free) tour at Fragonard (the larger perfume company in Grasse) and then the next day the workshop here at Molinard - highly recommended in combination. Good atmosphere, nice ambience, nice, helpful employees, informative and good value for money insofar as you take a rather large perfume bottle of your own perfume with you (a code is stored for this so that you can always reorder it).

I had a BALL! Everything was a great new experience. Folks were so wonderful and accommodating. I’ve been telling EVERYONE to visit and make their own parfum. The tour is free… which was great. It’s all in French but you can get a device to do the tour in your language of choice. The parfum making class was easy to follow. We had a great instructor. This is a very unusual activity that I highly recommend.

Absolutely amazing experience! We enjoyed the amazing layout and experience in creating pur own perfumes! Covid guidelines were followed, and everything was sanitized. The activity started 30 min late due to someone in the previous group arriving late, which we didn't mind as that meant we had more time to look at the perfumes in the store and take pictures with all the vintage pieces around the store. Would highly recommend!
