I am a Perfume Designer

Ok, not exactly a perfume designer but I did make my own signature scent. I had the chance to go to the Galimard Parfumeur  for the Personal Perfume Workshop and it was so much fun.

img_1151 To be honest, it was a little more work than I expected and actually took a few hours but I am so happy. As soon as you enter the building the scent is so strong. It seemed like million different smells. I have always wanted a perfume that matched my personality and every time I spray it on I know I designed it for myself.  img_1168 galimard_perfume_grasse_france

I knew nothing about perfume and I only own a couple bottles of nice perfumes and the rest is some type of Bath & Body Works spray so I have never been into that part of the girly thing but Grasse, France is the Perfume Capitol of the World!

So, I figured when in Grasse…

You start off entering the “Le Studio des Fragrances”.  No need to panic there is an expert there to assist you, she is called “The Nose”. She is pretty is much the expert on all things scented.
You discover the different base products and techniques combined to create your own personal fragrance using over 127 notes.
She will explain to you the architecture of a good perfume, that is Top Note (peak note), Middle Note (heart note), and Base Note (fond note).
She helps evaluate and gives suggestions…

So, what would you name your fragrance? My fragrance is called Philomena!

    Oh, wow. This experience looks really fun! I am not sure if I am creative enough to create my own, just comfortable with one scent – Clinique Happy 🙂 Loved your blog post!

    Much love,
