  • Adopted son of Patrick Süsskind ;-)), Olivier showed us his laboratory where magical things happen. Lack of time we were not in the possibility to follow Saturday courses, but still there, "lift a corner of the veil" of his passion and I could assist him a little to make a perfume staff at base of orange blossom. Happy J.etais! Unique experience and I'm really inpatiente to use after his 'rest' in the fridge... Thanks Olivier! Lieve Belgium - Flemish

  • I received a voucher for a 2 hour workshop to create her own perfume, and I had a great time! The room and facilities are already worth a visit! Quick overview at the beginning, very interesting, we see a few basics for well understand what to do, then workshop practice... and we're back with the fragrance that has been created. It's original, educational, and I'd stay again when my fragrance will be empty!

  • I bought two tickets for this workshop to celebrate 70 years of my father. The price was OK, but when it is necessary to buy a ticket for something, I like someone to check the ticket at the entrance. This was not the case here. That said, as my father and I were late, due to a mix-up of entrance to Hall, it is possible that tickets have been taken just at the beginning. The master of conference (like I missed the beginning, I didn't know his name) had a very, very impressive knowledge and it was so exciting. It was obvious she had a great desire to share his love for the subject with us, and his passion was contagious. She told us the history of perfume for an hour and a quarter, and then we started our own perfume creation workshop. The projector would have been much better used, because it was a little confusing during the course. Besides, my father and I think that she could spend more time explaining the composition of perfume rather than jump from history to manufacturing all suite. It would have taken a better explanation of notes: the top note, the heart notes and the base note. But beyond all that, it must be said that my father and I are really exploded and we look forward to use fragrances (must wait a little while to make the concoction well mixed). The workshop is in a wonderful location, we learned a lot of very useful information and interesting; the equipment provided was great (the box with oils... oh la) and as a bonus, even if my father and I speak french, the lecturer speaks English without fault, which is very useful. Despite the small criticism, I advise you to attend for a great experience, either in a group or two!
