Paris – French Perfume Workshop
Perfumes (and diamonds) are a girl’s best friend and if you’ve ever been interested in learning how perfume is created, there’s no better place to do this than in Paris.
France has a long tradition of perfume making and its dominance of the fragrance industry is confirmed by top brands like Chanel, Christian Dior, Guerlain, Kenzo, all of which are household names. The French Riviera town of Grasse is the world capital of perfume making and here the professionals work on the extraction of oils in the essence laboratories whilst the prestigious perfumes are created in Paris.
In a 2 hr 30 mins. “Perfume Workshop in Paris” you can learn about the history of perfume, current trends and then create several perfumes of your own with the guidance of a perfume expert.
Perfumes are not only made from the petals of flowers, but also from other plant material such as fruit, resins, grasses and roots, spices and even wood bark. They are classified into seven olfactory groups. At the workshop you will learn how to smell and describe the ingredients and characteristics of the different groups of scents and then to create the fragrance that you like and which you can take home with you.
This is a Paris experience with a difference and may perhaps trigger the start of a new hobby or profession? Perhaps too you might be decide to next make a visit to the beautiful town of Grasse where the three perfume distilleries, Fragonard, Galimard and Molinard are based.
