A trip to the land of perfume!
Today, I became a perfumer "nose"! And yes, by going to the Maison Molinard in Grasse, I was able to discover the secrets of tarinology and create my own custom perfume. Discover my day in Grasse!

How to create your own perfume?

This workshop allows you to discover the ingredients and essences to make a fragrance and moreover it allows you to create your own.
It is in fact in this perfumer's house which dates back to 1849 (yes, yes, I'm spreading my culture!) that this very original concept is proposed to you.
I loved smelling and selecting floral notes to finally compose the "bottle" which resembles me.
Don't worry, Céline is there to guide you 🙂

Who can tell me the story of Perfume?

After this sensory workshop, I went to the Musée International de la Parfumerie. The ideal place to learn everything about perfume!
With this museum full of history, I was able to discover the originality of the profession of the manufacturers and the great perfume houses.

Visit to the Perfumery Museum


Where to smell and discover aromatic plants?

I invite you to continue your visit not far from there, with the Jardins du MIP in Mouans-Sartoux: it is a very pleasant walk where you will discover an impressive number of flowers used in perfumery, aromatic and medicinal plants.

For information, exhibitions are held every year at the MIP Gardens in Mouans-Sartoux.
