The creation of my perfume, a unique olfactory experience!


Being a day in Eze, I chose to test the "Private Collection Workshop" offered by the Galimard Perfumery.

As soon as I arrived at the Galimard Perfumery, founded in 1747, I was immediately immersed in this scented atmosphere. Welcomed kindly by Irina, the "Perfumer", she directs me to the workshop for the development of perfume. In front of me, a small "organ" with perfumes composed of 18 notes of essences, classified into 3 categories forming the olfactory pyramid:

. the notes of "head": the most volatile fragrance, the smell remains only a few minutes after the vaporization; the scents are fresh, green, fruity and consist of citrus fruits and aromatic notes (verbena, lemon, bergamot, grapefruit, peppermint ...)

. the notes of "heart": they constitute the characteristic smell of the perfume and remain for several hours; the scents are marine, flowery and fruity (peony, tiare, jasmine, rose, ginger, orange blossom, pomegranate flower, magnolia ...)

. the notes of "background": it is the base of the perfume, the base notes evaporate very slowly, the scents are woody, sweet and leathery (vanilla, musk, wood, patchouli, leather, sandalwood, vetiver root, mousse, tonka bean ...)

On the advice of Irina, I begin the creation of my perfume.

I feel all the bottles, I make my choice among the 18 notes, under expert eyes of Irina, I pour drop by drop the recommended amount of extracts of essences in a graduated test tube ... In a few moments, I become an apprentice perfumer !

Once my perfume is finished, its unique formula is registered in the database of the Galimard Perfumery. I will be able to order it at any time. As a souvenir, I leave with my creation of 50 ml of eau de parfum.

"The Private Collection Workshop" is followed by a guided tour of the Museum and the artisanal soap factory.

Who has never dreamed of composing their own personal, exclusive perfume, a perfume that seduces you and your tastes ... This experience will awaken your senses, I recommend it!
