  • What you will see and do

    Paris has always been the international perfume showcase for the world so there is no better place to learn about the Art of Perfumery, its history, and trends.
    Discovering the History of Perfume, and a few "technics" to train your sense of smell. You will have the opportunity to sniff many different things: raw materials & iconic perfumes. A playful moment, rich in olfactory discoveries!

    The tour lasts for 2 hours and begins with an introduction to olfaction, to help you understand the world fragrances, its history, and the structure of the market.
    You will have the opportunity to smell raw materials, which are the ingredients used in the perfume formulas: orange blossom, bergamot, or musk ... So you can start to educate your sense of smell, and (re) discover the magical world of scents.
    The ride continues in beautiful shops, still confidential for most of the people; these shops are chosen for their warm welcome and their remarkable fragrances.

    Sophie is a perfume expert. She has a lot of knowledges on that subject that she shares with pleasure. Her activity is suitable for women as much as for men. You can also consider taking your children with you to have this activity with the all family. Learning a lot while having a great time in a nice tea room, this activity is a recreational way to discover the world of perfumes and is so much different from what Paris has to offer you. Do not wait longer before meeting Sophie !
