One experience takes 2-3 hours and costs 129€ (1€ = $1 cash). Everyone leaves with their own custom fragrance and a gift bag of Tijon products worth 40€ . The most popular experience takes 60-90 minutes and costs 75€ with everyone leaving with their own fragrance and a gift bag of Tijon products worth 40€.

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

Who would ever expect to have an experience like learning about mixing scents and making your own perfume while on a tropical island. But it is here in the cute little town of Grand Case. The people at Tijon could not be nicer and the time felt like it flew by. I can't recommend this enough. And a perfect activity... More

What to do in rainy days! We found Tijon Perfume creation. John and Cindy were very kind with us. They lives there for 11 years. They taught us how to make our own parfume, spoke about the conposition of the parfume and a little history of it. They have hundreds of fragrances to chose the best that fits to you,... More

Four months later and I still wear my custom perfume creation every day. I love it and will re-order from Tijon when I need to. A fun, educational afternoon and a great keepsake to go home with. A solid operation. You won't be disappointed!

Three of us decided to try this based on its description. Boy are we glad we did!!! It was fun, educational, and peaceful. We each created our own signature perfume that I use almost every day now. John was pleasant, informative, and never pushy. The rush-rush of having to be somewhere melted away when we walked in the door. This... More

My husband surprised me with a class on making my own signature perfume. It was a wonderful experience and I have told all of my friends about it since we returned home. We have traveled on 5 continents and this was truly a special day. Each time I wear my perfume it takes me right back to Tijon.

My husband and I had the most fabulous time creating our perfume and cologne. He went in skeptical and came out raving what a fantastic time he had. Me too! We learned a lot! A bunch of scents to choose from and very knowledgeable and friendly owners. We were there about an hour and a half doing the mix and... More

Loved my experience at Tijon and it was worth sacrificing some fun in the sun to create my very own signature fragrance! I have now returned to work (sadly my desk job and not on an island) and am happy to report I am still smelling my new fragrance from this morning and I LOVE the fact I created my... More
