MAISON MOLINARD, from 1849 to today. It is a rare thing for a family business to uphold its exacting standards and maintain its original fervor as the decades pass. Yet, in Grasse, the perfume capital of the world, five successive generations have made emotion their raison d’être. Having earned the nation’s highest distinction as an Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant (“Living Heritage Company”), recognizing its rare and ancient savoir-faire, Maison Molinard continues to reinvent itself each passing day, forging a legacy in the fires of its passion for perfume.

Not what was expected

We thought we would get a tour, some history and learn a little bit about how perfume is made. This class is just sit at a table mix different fragrances together and leave. All in about an hour.

L’activité est sympa lorsque vous êtes au moins 2. A savoir ils n’acceptent pas qu’une personne vous accompagne « par manque de place » sauf si vous avez des enfants bien sûr là ça ne pose visiblement pas de problème Si vous n’avez qu’un bon vous devez faire l’atelier seul et donc l’expérience est vraiment pas top


Activité sympa mais résultat décevant

Commenté le 20/03/2024

Personnel très sympa, activité ludique mais résultat du parfum décevant. J'ai fait confiance sur la.composition du parfum mais j'ai l'impression qu'on n'a pas assez écouté mes préférences, dommage. Plus cher que les concurrents sur grasse.
