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.

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

Have never been to a perfumery before and this was part of an excursion we did whilst on the island. As I adore perfume, we thought we would pop along and check it out! We started off with a talk about perfumes, how they are made, the various ingredients used and the process of creating a scent, all of which... More

We were on a cruise in November. Since we had been to St. Maarten before, I took to Trip Advisor to see what there was to do on the island. I came upon this. At first, I wasn't sure I would be able to "sell" this to my husband, but he was very open to the idea saying it would... More

This was a fun thing. I wasn't expecting it, nor did I really think I would enjoy myself as much as I did. We were part of a big group and this was offered as a spouse activity while the guys were at meeting--you could either opt in or out, and I figured that I will usually try anything once... More

My wife and I were vacationing on St. Maarten when she saw an ad for Tijon and booked an appointment through the concierge at our resort. She loved the experience of creating her own perfume scent. John and Cyndi were wonderful in educating her in the process, as well as the history of perfume. Couldn't have been nicer. The time... More

I was recently on the Viking Star for the West Indies Explorer. We booked this activity in September, just because it sounded so cool. Now to share the experience. My Mom and I were the only two on this activity. So we got our own private Taxi Tour of the Island as we made our way from the Dutch Side... More
