Owner description: Jean de Galimard, Lord of Seranon and related to the Count of Thorenc, lived in Grasse where in 1747 he created the PARFUMERIE GALIMARD. Founder of the corporation of "Glovemakers and Perfumers", he supplied the court of Louis "the well-beloved", King of France, with olive oils, pomades and perfumes, of which he invented the first formulas. Two and a half centuries after its inception by its illustrious founder, continuing its Royal tradition from 1747, the Parfumerie Galimard remains a family owned and operated entreprise. Galimard's contemporary management style allows its creative branch to breathe life and love into its newest perfume masterpeices. Classical in the pursuit of perfection and harmony, Galimard cultivates inoovation and contemporary style to achieve each unique and sublime eternal creation. We invite you to come and share this joy and passion with us : * IN GRASSE : the visit will lead you through our Museum, laboratory and the conditioning rooms where the origin of perfumes can be traced. A thorough explanation of the extraction methods of aromatic raw materials, flowers, plants and aromatic woods is offered. You will also discover the work organ of the "composer" of perfumes, called the "Nose", and some of his secrets will be revealed to you. * IN EZE-VILLAGE : our delightful team will inform and guide you throughout our Perfumery and explain the processes of extraction and fabrication. Stroll and discover our authentic Perfume Museum and our ancient traditional soap factory. Both our establishments offer free guided visits 365 days a year. All our products are priced as factory outlet. * In GRASSE and in EZE-VILLAGE : come and create your own personal perfume! Pioneed and recognized leader in this Art, Galimard opened its Studio des Fragrances in Grasse in 1997 and its Studio des Fragrances in Eze-Villlage in 2007. In our Studio des Fragrances, we invite you to enter the world of personal perfume creation. With the assured knowledge of the Parfumeur, you will embark upon a voyage of personal discovery and emotional freedom in designing a fragrance that is uniquely yours.

I really love perfumes so the whole experience for me was great. We had a guide there who was telling us about the history of the perfume. It was nice to learn the process of how to make perfumes, to see the all the flowers petals and to smell the different types of flowers. At the end of the tour you get to the shop where you can buy different types of extracts, which are pretty pricey. This is the only down point of it. Other than that, it was a nice visit and the scenery outside of the museum is also lovely.

My family of five enjoyed the experience of making our own fragrances. We each were encouraged to put 14 to 17 different scents into the 100ml bottles. It took about an hour to complete the process and I was expecting a tour afterward, but our guide told us that there wasn’t a tour available. I didn’t understand her explanation why. It cost us 49 euros for each mixture/bottle.

My wife & daughter took the "Parfum" classes to make their own scent and had a great time! We didn't take the tour since they were busy for two hours making it. They didn't realize how many fragrances there are to select from to customize their own unique perfume. They had a great time about 49Euros each, then you have to upgrade for the better bottles than the brown standard one. My other daughter ordered her sister's perfume on the internet she liked it so much.

Not as impressive as Fragonard but with equally friendly and knowledgeable staff, this is a place that complements the visit to the Fragonard factory and museum.

I took a group of 25 teenagers on the tour of the facilities, everyone there was very nice and welcoming, our tour guide was an amazing and very funny lady who made them listen attentively to all the phases of perfume-making process, the kids were very happy with the entire experience.
