Day-out from 10.00am to 6.00pm
Departure from your Parisian residence with our private chauffeur
An unforgettable day devoted to the secret and fascinating world of perfume, an entertaining olfactive experience. Of our five senses, the sense of smell is the most subtle, but is also the least known. Who would deny the evocative power of perfume? Before Proust, Baudelaire was already exalting its qualities:
« Some perfumes are fresh (…) As soft as oboes, as green as a prairie, And others, corrupt, rich and triumphant, Like amber, musk, benzoin and incense, Who sing the transport of the spirit and the senses »
Penetrate the world of perfumes in a workshop to taylor-make the fragrance that reflects your personality. You will follow this sensorial experience with lunch in a Belle Epoque setting. Other olfactive discoveries await you in the afternoon. Go on a quest for meaning and for essences, visit prestigious perfume Houses and meet discreet creators. They celebrate the history of perfume and its bottles, some of which are French treasures.
Morning: Departure at 9:30am from your Parisian residence
On the road to the kingdom of fragrances, for a first meeting in the form of a workshop. During a unique experience, you will become a perfume maker thanks to passionate and expert professionals. They will select, assemble and supply the best raw materials from Grasse, the world’s capital of perfume.
Lunch: Your sensorial experience will diversify when, accompanied by your Ambassadress, you will eat at a chic bistro par excellence, a setting of the Belle Epoque overlooking the Île-Saint-Louis. The morning fragrances will be replaced by the savoury tastes of the meal prepared with the best of the season’s products.
Afternoon: 2.00pm – 6.00pm
We will open the doors to great Parisian Houses such as Master Perfumers Serge Lutens and Francis Kurkdjian. We always keep some little secrets back to surprise you.

An olfactory heaven!
