Perfume Making & Caribbean Scents Shore Trip

Upon arrival at the fragrance shop and small "factory" you will receive a brief introduction to the captivating world of fragrances by the staff. If "The Nose", an affectionate term for the lead perfumer, is available, you will get a chance to meet them as well. The "factory" staff's job, is to, through keen knowledge of a large variety of fragrance ingredients, alone or in combination with other fragrances, to make a magical fragrance creation.

On this St. Maarten excursion, you will be shown how perfumes are made, from the layering of scents, through how they are bottled.

With the process explained you will then begin the process by choosing from 12 pre-mixed oils. To this, you will choose up to 3 additional oils from a collection of more than 300 scents to fine-tune a fragrance soothing to your nose. You will be given three attempts so you can compare and choose your favorite one.

The one you choose will then be sealed into a 1.8-ounce bottle for you to take home along with a gift bag of Tijon products valued up to $45. You will also have an opportunity to browse the perfumes, in addition to lotions, soaps, candles, sunscreens, and cosmetics made in the "factory." What better way to remember your day in French St. Martin?
