Fun and interesting experience

This perfume experience was led by an experienced perfumer, in a gorgeous villa built in the 1400s, in city central Florence. The store itself was stunning; the workroom in the cellar well set-up; the activity - creating a perfume - very interesting and fun. Please note you are making a "simple" perfume, to be used with reed diffusers for your home, rather than a true complex perfume for your body. You'll create your own perfume that you'll decant into a lovely bottle that is boxed up with reeds and a diffuser cap in their gorgeous store box, then bagged. They served coffee, tea, and sweets after the class. Small group, although we were the largest group he said he'd ever had - 12 people. Expensive but fun. I defy you to leave without purchasing something from the wide selection of scents, soaps, lotions, etc., in the shop!

This perfume and Sensory experience was fantastic. The class had a master perfumer and 2 assistance. My wife and I made 2 personal perfumes and the whole process lasted over 4 hours. This was a great course and we learned so much about fragrance. If we go back to Florence we would certainly do this course again.

Had a wonderful time creating my own perfume. Got lots of interesting informations about the shop, the history and the structure of perfumes. I can strongly recommend it to everyone!

Very informative on the history of their shop and the history of perfume in Florence. Very cool to see the process of the personal perfume come together. Great experience overall

A Must Do!!
