After a career in cosmetics and champagne, I am the co founder of a brand dedicated to customized scents.
Some of the workshops are hosted by Béatrice, my sister and business partner, or by Roxane 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 !

Really enjoyed the perfume workshop. It was very educational but also fun. The selection process for creating a parfume was made easier by the classification of the scent notes. Love my custom parfum. Great way to take home something truly unjque from Le Marais neighborhood.

Offert à une amie pour son anniversaire, elle a été ravie de l'expérience et conseille vivement. Elle a trouvé cela très convivial, technique mais très bien expliqué et le personnel est à l'écoute des questions.

it was really unique and wonderful experience to have in Paris. it’s really hard to find a perfume that I like. they introduce us the raw ingredients and lead us to make our own perfumes by blending some raw perfumes. it’s really memorable and highly recommended!
