Make your Own Perfume / Cologne: Choose from 3 perfume creation experiences, one taking 3 hours (reservation required), one taking 60-90 minutes (the most popular, reservations recommended) and one taking 20 minutes. The hardest part for many is naming their own fragrance. In the two longer experiences, in addition to your own bottle of perfume, you also receive a gift bag of Tijon products valued up to 45 euros. Tijon also offers an on-site boutique with its signature line of 23 French Caribbean fragrances, cosmetics and gifts. Hours are Monday-Friday from 9:30am to 5pm and other times by appointment. NOTE that we offer limited hours in Sept. and Oct. See our website for more information.

We had a great time, my husband says he enjoyed it much more than he expected... and you walk away with your own custom perfume or cologne and a goodie bag! We had a great time... if you're in...

My wife and I signed up online, using PayPal to reserve a class. As it turned out, we had the place to ourselves, with our instructrice, Mili. First, John gave us some history and information about perfume and cologne. Then, his wife, Cynthia, let us smell from the "perfume oil organ", where the essential and other oils are arrayed in...

I had the best time here. I did a perfume class and created my own scent. It's a great souvenir. I think of my vacation every time I spray it on. I just ran out so I'll be going back this summer to make another. Their gift shop is beautiful also. They have original scents, which we brought a bunch... More

Or even if you're just looking for something unique and different. Owners are so friendly and knowledgeable, and being in the lab is cool. The shop is lovely too, and they sell many of their proprietary fragrances. With your paid fee, in addition to the class and your custom creation, you get a goodie bag with some freebies. I would...

To all of the other positive experiences already related, I will add: Due to weather, driving distances, and other variables, my wife and I arrived two hours before our scheduled appointment. We stopped in just to look at the store, and they graciously offered to give our private Mix and Match class early. This is just a small example of... More

Loved, loved, loved this part of my St. Martin trip! This shop is walking distance from the Grand Case Beach Club where Mom and I were vacationing, and we spent an afternoon here mixing and creating our own signature fragrances! They offer 90-minute workshops that teach you, step-by-step, how to make and bottle your own perfume, and they end the... More

This experience was a lot of fun and well worth time and money. It was a little overwhelming the amount of scents that were available but with the help of some of the staff I made a couple really nice scents. I was with a party of 4 and we all had a great time.

We had just a short visit in Grand Case, and visiting the Tijon Perfumery was on the top of my list. The perfumes are reasonably priced, and a few products throughout the shop were on sale, as well. This was important because I bought six handcrafted perfumes and several scented soaps! The shop is known for hosting classes for those... More

This is one of the best shore excursions I've ever done while cruising! A smallish group of 10-12 people learn about making perfume/cologne then create three recipes of their own. Of the three, you choose your favorite and then mix a full bottle of it to take home. The perfume portion of the excursion lasts about 90 minutes and I... More

So happy a cruising friend told us about Tijon Parfumerie before our ship's visit to St Marteen. Immediately emailed John Berglund for information, resulting in an appointment for a "Mix & Match" workshop during our day ashore. Taxi from ship took about 30 minutes and was $25 plus tip. As we arrived early, Milli started our class for just the... More
