I took the perfume creation workshop at Galimard in july 2022 and LOVED IT!!! Although I was nervous as to how my scent would actually turn out, I followed the nose's lead & picked out my favorite scents for base, heart and top notes (14 in all) and then I listened when told how much to add of each to make one 100ml bottle of perfume. My grandmother was a chemist and the process reminded me of her! I must say, my perfume, which I chose to call GAIA, came out so fresh and beautiful that I ordered more from the US when I got home and even some bath gel for Christmas gifts based on my own fragrance which is cool because it gives a personal touch. I would recommend making a perfume and ordering from Galimard to anyone and everyone as It was not just fun but profitable.....

After attending the Galimard perfume workshop, we asked if we could join a factory tour. While the tour itself was free, the attitude shown by the tour guide was insulting. Several times, she made rather ill-mannered and unnecessary comments.

When we asked if the tour started at a particular time, she replied with “I know!” without telling us that she was, in fact, the guide. In fact, she then appeared at the time but made us wait on purpose to start the tour late even though it was clear we were waiting to begin.

She displayed a air of self-importance and arrogance throughout, shown clearly when she did not understand a question asked. After asking that the question be repeated, she then criticised the person asking by insisting that the question should have been phrased in a better way!

Perhaps this tour guide acted so out of her nature and was unaware of the demeaning behaviour and bad impression she left, but she stated that she has been working 39 years at the company and should know better!

The tour itself was very brief and below average. Having looked forward to a positive experience in Grasse, and even attended a workshop, this encounter with this particular employee soured an otherwise good day.

We recommend to avoid the Galimard Factory tour in favour of other better organised tours and more respectful tour guides.

I took my older teens (19 girl and and 17 boy) to do this. A short train ride from Cannes but a steep walk or €12 taxi from the train station. We each had an “organ” of about 150 scents to mix together as base, heart, and top notes for our individualised perfume, which we got to take 100ml of home and they keep your recipe if you want to order again. All of us really pleased with our creations and since it was definitely not a beach day it was a worthwhile way to spend the afternoon. Even got certificates. Book up in advance though.

What a wonderful experience for the perfume lover and those interested in perfume. My husband gifted me this experience for our 25th wedding anniversary and joined me. You are invited into the lab when you arrive and are seated at your own organ. The organ is a table with all of the scents available for you to use to make your fragrance. At Galimard that is about 100+ scents. A very brief explanation of how a perfume is composed is given by the professional who will assist you in making your fragrance. The experience is about 2 hours. At no time did I feel rushed. The professional was very engaged in helping me. You are told to have an inspiration for your fragrance and then left to sniff each scent to find the ones you would like to use, working from the base notes up the pyramid to completing with the top notes. As you discuss your vision, the perfumer helps you to compose the "recipe". You will keep record your recipe on a sheet of paper they give you. Once you have all 100ml drops in your beaker and are satisfied with your creation, you give it a name and they will bottle your fragrance and give it its own serial number and personalized label. Galimard will store YOUR creation in their vaults for eternity and should you need a refill , they can recreate it and ship it to you!! How fantastique! I truly love my fragrance and will definitely reorder when the time comes. The fragrance is definitely quality and not cheap at all. The service of the staff at Galimard were so friendly and helpful. I highly recommend. BTW: Hubby lasted about 15 minutes watching me make mine before he wanted to get in on the fun and make his own. They seated him at his own organ and he created a fabulous fragrance for himself.

I was talking to a lady the day before the workshop and she told me she’s going to do a workshop at the Galimard perfume shop so I thought why not and I booked a workshop through the phone and I got a free spot for the next day.
I can tell you this was an awesome experience, you going to choose between so many different senses and you are going to create your own perfume with 100 ml.
I love my new Parfume!!

This is not a factory tour like the one at Occitane. Is more like a guided tour to the museum and a look at the laboratory where maybe they make the perfumes.

However, the guide was knowledgeable and helped my wife with her questions on what perfumes for what type of skin, what age of skin etc.

We then visited the shop where she recommended perfume for both of us. 40 years of smoking and working in factories has more or less ruined my sense of smell but the wife was happy and came away with a carrier bag.

This was our first time ar Galimard as we have previously been to Fragonard and Molinard. Very impressed with Galinard. A nice tour of the facility and some real bargains in the shop. Would recommend over the other 2 which are more glitzy and attract tour buses etc. A good hour spent.
