Really enjoyed this workshop. I chose a short workshop due to personal time constraints. I was guided by an expert through the steps to make my own personalized fragrance. She was really knowledgeable, quicky working out what appealed to me. It's clearly a great marketing tool for the company, they keep your formulation and can remake it and send it to you for a hefty sum . My only criticism is that the workshop took place in the shop so the instructor also had to serve customers and was frequently distracted from the task of the workshop.

Good experience with a lot of options to choose from and the methodology behind the placement of the fragrances was clearly explained. Once the fragrances were chosen, the formula (percentages) was created by the host and was finalised. Only downside is my bottle slightly leaks by the cap when tilted.

My personal highlight in Paris! It was a lot of fun smelling all the different scents and choosing your own favorites, from which the individual, personal perfume was then put together. In addition, the hostess was very friendly, patient and helpful, making us feel very comfortable. Really a great experience that I can only recommend to everyone.
