      Great fun
      Visited with my two daughters and my 10 year old granddaughter and we had a great time. The make your own perfume workshop is pretty basic but we had a lot of fun mixing the different notes and comparing our resulting fragrances with each other. The workshop was followed by a very interesting tour of the museum and history of perfume and then we were in the shop where we got to smell a bunch of Fragonard fragrances and purchase some if we desired. Of course we desired! The fragrance I chose to purchase smells so good and honestly lasts way longer than perfumes usually do on me! This was one of my granddaughter's favorite activities in Paris. Well worth the time and price!

      Quick tour, unique experience!
      Factory was easy to find and close to public transit, I recommend doing this and then going to visit the opera house as they are across the street. We arrived then were brought upstairs to make the perfume, then given a short tour on the history of perfume, then let out in the store. Entire experience took 45 minutes and it was very unique to Paris.

      Great fun thing to do in the country of parfums!
      We liked the experience and learned about parfum. I would just say that the making of the parfum itself was a bit rushed. We only had a few minutes to actually make it and only had a couple of options to mix. I would prefer to have a bit more time and more options to mix. You have a chance to buy their perfumes at the end of the tour at a discount if you buy a few.

      We smell interesting now lol
      This was an off the wall idea that turned out to be so interesting and informative. I don't think we created anything that will set the world on fire, but learning about the balance of fragrances and the history of perfume was actually far more interesting that I expected. The museum was great and out guide was fun too.

      Interesting introduction to the world of French perfume making
      After my self-guided tour of the Opéra Garnier, I went to the nearby free museum: Musée de Perfume de Fragonard, It was so interesting to learn about the scent combinations of different herbs and to see the demonstration of the Fragonard perfume production process. You can also purchase different scents of Fragonard perfume, eau de cologne and soaps in tbd shop on the first floor.

      Great experience
      Delightful experience for those who love perfume and want to learn more. Staff were friendly and very knowledgeable. They were also very accommodating when we ran late. They re booked us for the next day. Excellent perfume at very affordable prices.

      This was another tour included with the Paris Pass, informative and enjoyable on the whole. The shop directed us next door to the 'waiting area' but there were zero seats here - had to sit on the stairs as my feet were aching... and the carpet was filthy. Nevertheless, I'm glad we made this last minute booking - the last tour of the day and it lasted much longer than billed. If the previous ones ran to time I think they'd be rather rushed. It is a basic workshop, as others have said, but the guide/demonstrator was really helpful and considerate, and went on to describe the history/techniques and artefacts in the small museum very concisely. Of course, it all ended up back in the shop with a few more testers and 'special offers' (you know - just for our group) but I didn't feel under any pressure to part with any money. Some interesting smells certainly, but I'm happy to stick with my own brand.

      Perfume workshop
      The workshop was very informative but there were not enough choices of top, heart and base notes to mix. Nonetheless, the experience was one of a kind.

      Quick yet well rounded experience. If you have the time, go.
      First and foremost, the workshop and the visit are in English. You will learn the basics of fragrance design by doing by yourself the final balancing of one the Fragranard’s fragance. No industrial secrets will be revealed but you will get a glimpse of the tools of the trade. The museum is small but a enlightening experience. If scents is your thing don’t hesitate to go.

      Very fun experience making my own perfume. The museum is interesting. Our guide was great! She was funny, smart and informative. Very reasonably priced. Absolutely worth the time and expense.

      Nice activity but not amazing
      This was a lovely activity but not mind blowing. I booked my teenage daughter in to the perfume making workshop and museum tour and I accompanied her. It started with the perfume making class which was held in a stunning room and was very well run and organised. There were only 3 different fragrance vials each participant could draw from to make their perfume (everyone had the same 3 fragrances) so participants were fairly limited in the perfume they could make. I was pleasantly surprised that most of the participants were my age or my daughter’s age, as I was worried that the workshop may have just been for younger children. This was followed by a guided tour of the museum, which whilst it was interesting was a bit too long. The guide herself was lovely and very knowledgeable, however the workshop started a bit late and went longer than expected, and the tour also went longer than expected, so we couldn’t stay until the very end as we had another engagement and could only stay for the first 30 mins it ran overtime. Unfortunately there were no chairs in either the workshop or tour which was a long time to stand with a bad back.

      Art of Perfume
      I booked this experience direct and the instructions about the location and start time was good. It was a little confusing to enter as the doors do not seem like doors! The receptionist was efficient and we waited for the class facilitator. We were escorted to a room beside the museum area and went through the various scents to identify the top/heart/base notes of a scent. it was an interactive class where we then created a small vial of perfum based upon the Fragonard scent of the year 'Narcisse' to personal taste. Once the activity was completed in putting together the perfume we were given a tour of the museum area and told the story of perfume making and of the origins of Fragonard. Once that was done we went to the shop area to sample various scents that they sell and provided with an opportunity to purchase Fragonard perfum individually or collectively within our class group. This is a well run operation with everything clearly explained. A very enjoyable experience in clean pleasant surroundings. This activity is suitable for all ages apart from very young children who may not be disciplined enough to take part. I did purchase some perfume and remember enjoying this experience.

      simple & excellent
      Great experience, really personable guide. Learned some good information and fun facts in the workshop and during the tour. This is a low-lift, easy activity to add to any visit, and I would especially recommend it for first-time visitors to Paris who have limited to no knowledge of perfumes and the industry.

    It was just a short tour, which started with a small workshop where the participants could make their own eau de toilette, based on three different base fragrances. Our tour guide Emma did a good and charming job in perfect English. After the workshop there was a tour through the little factory with nice explanations and at the end the option to buy some of the perfumes Fragonard is producing. good offers, interesting short tour, nice workshop, good value for money. Recommendable!

    Lovely experience with knowledgeable staff. Only issue was finding it - we walked uphill for 50 minutes from the train station only to find we were in the wrong factory! So we spent £20 in a taxi going back down the hill to the correct place! The address needs to be clearer on the booking.

    Had a wonderful tour here and a great tour guide who explained so much about the process of extracting and processing of essential oils from the plant to the product.
