Make your Own Perfume / Cologne: Choose from 3 perfume creation experiences, one taking 3 hours (reservation required), one taking 60-90 minutes (the most popular, reservations recommended) and one taking 20 minutes. The hardest part for many is naming their own fragrance. In the two longer experiences, in addition to your own bottle of perfume, you also receive a gift bag of Tijon products valued up to 45 euros. Tijon also offers an on-site boutique with its signature line of 23 French Caribbean fragrances, cosmetics and gifts. Hours are Monday-Friday from 9:30am to 5pm and other times by appointment. NOTE that we offer limited hours in Sept. and Oct. See our website for more information.

Cindy and John are the perfect hosts with an experience unlike any other. Learn about scents and chemistry while making your own unique perfume or cologne to take home. We had such a great time and left with so many nice gifts from their store...so worth the price. Be sure to pick up John's book too.

After reviewing "things to do" this was an opportunity that caught my attention - simply because it is so difficult for me to find a perfume that I like! So while I thought this would just be a fun way to spend a few hours - it was PERFECT for me to create my own perfume - actually 3 -... More
