After a career in cosmetics and champagne, I am the co founder of a brand dedicated to customized fragrances.
Some of the workshops are hosted by Béatrice, my sister and business partner, or by Marie who is working with us.
We love sharing our passion for perfumes, their history, some amazing French brands, the secrets of scent-making and the wonders of olfaction.
We grew up in the Ile St Louis, a few hundred meters from our shop, we love this area and we are always very pleased to share our favorite addresses.

Our biggest reward is seeing the smiles of participants proudly realizing they have made their first perfume !

    It was the funniest storytelling about perfume that will stay with me forever! However I wish we could have more variety to choose our scents from. Nevertheless, I do like my final product :)

    Not only do you get to make your own perfume from tons of different scent options, you get to hear a super unique and interesting history of perfume. I learned so many things I would never have expected! Must try and good for everyone.

    Emmanuel was very welcoming and extremely knowledgeable about the history of perfume. He was an exceptional teacher and my husband and I learned a lot about the olfactory system. It was a unique and outstanding experience. We highly recommend it to anyone visiting Paris.
