Such a beautiful experience
, Aug 2022
Had a lovely time with friends- what a way to spend a couple hours! Our host Ilena was great and we all were very happy with our perfumes
100% true this if you love smelling well.
, Jul 2022
Wonderful and fun experience. The person helping up with very informative and helpful. I would recommend to everyone
They canceled our workshop. Disappointed
, Jul 2022
Molinard canceled our perfume workshop in the last moment. Very disappointed. We were leaving the next day and couldn’t reschedule.
Great experience, would definitely do it again!
, Jul 2022
To be honest, we were not sure what to expect from this experience. However, as soon as we walked in, the specialist made us feel at home and made the whole experience very pleasant. There were two other people in our group (a brother and sister) and we all really enjoyed the whole process. The specialist gave us very detailed advice and instructions on how to create our perfect scent. After we selected our preferred smells, she helped each individual, group together possible combinations until each of us found the right mix :) She was very patient and helped navigate us through a very complex, scientific process. Once we made our selections, she wrote down the exact mL for each scent that should go in our bottles. At the end of it, we each have our own unique, preferred scent. You also get a certificate, which will help you reorder it in the future!
Unique Experience
, Jul 2022
This experience was both educational and enjoyable! My daughter and I learned so much about perfume, scents, and the creation of unique fragrances! We both absolutely love the perfume we created and could not imagine and better souvenir to bring home from our priceless trip to Nice!
Fun activity
, Jul 2022
Fun activity while in Nice. I was unable to make a trip to Grasse to see the perfume factories in person so this was a good alternative.
Making your own perfume in Nice
, Jul 2022
Great experience! Would highly recommend! Went here with my daughter and two others were in our group. It was so interesting to share our fragrances.
More fun than expected
, Jun 2022
Not to be sexist, but as a guy I had doubts about this. It was something to do. It turned out to be fun and I actually learned some interesting stuff about perfumery. The guide was a true expert and helped us make our own custom blend. And it was more than a “vial” as listed. It was a 50ml bottle! (Only on the longer workshop)
Interactive Fun!
, Jun 2022
Oh my goodness this was more than worth the price of the ticket. It was so much fun! Everyone was involved. Some surprises too! The smells need to be smelt don’t just go by the names. If you get the chance try smelling the cardamum and green tomato. Just trust me you won’t be upset :)
Unique Scent
, Jun 2022
The time spent learning about the scents that make up a perfume was great. The best part is being able to take one home.
, May 2022
Fantastic time to spend creating your own signature scent whilst guided by expert tuition. Select your favourite scents and then be guided to the perfect balance of top middle and base notes to create your own perfume.
It’s a good young daughter/mother time
, Apr 2022
It might be a fun girls activity, but you don’t really learn anything and the quality of the ingredients are subpar - got a headache immediately after using it. (Other our fun places this didn’t happen)
Original and unique.

The staff at Molinard are knowledgeable and friendly. They provided a wonderful morning and I love my perfume
Great workshop
, Mar 2022
Really cool perfume workshop. Good fun, learn new things about the perfumes. I would recommend it if you’re visiting Nice.
Very nice experience even if we felt in a rush
, Feb 2022
Very nice experience! The only thing that can be improved is the time given to compose the perfume. Without already having the idea of what it will smell like, it’s hard to be on time.

Amazing Elegant Afternoon. 10/10
, Jan 2022
This was such a great, fun experience for me and my best friend. We got lost trying to find our way and was about fifteen minutes late to the appointment. We were greeted by Serena/Sabrina? and she was so kind and gracious despite our tardiness. The atmosphere is quiet and elegant and the quality of the scents and perfumes is absolutely worth it. They even save your recipe on file to remake it in the future if you want to order some more. 10/10
Be a perfumer “nez” for an hour
, Nov 2021
We got to try all kinds of essences and their combinations to make a unique perfume to our own personal taste. The staff was very friendly and helpful.
Incredibly touching time for us
, Oct 2021
It was an exceptional moment with my girlfriend. She chose my fragrance and I chose hers. It gave us some bonding time and we left with something unique to just us.
