After a career in cosmetics and champagne, I am the co founder of a brand dedicated to customized fragrances.
Some of the workshops are hosted by Béatrice, my sister and business partner, or by Marie who is working with us.
We love sharing our passion for perfumes, their history, some amazing French brands, the secrets of scent-making and the wonders of olfaction.
We grew up in the Ile St Louis, a few hundred meters from our shop, we love this area and we are always very pleased to share our favorite addresses.

Our biggest reward is seeing the smiles of participants proudly realizing they have made their first perfume !

A wonderfully unique experience. I enjoyed every minute of our workshop and I love the fragrances that I created. I would definitely come back again to refill or create more scents.

This is the perfect experience I highly recommend it if your visiting or like me who lives in Paris do it as a present! Very informative but not too much, it felt personal. And you get to walk away with your very own perfume!

5 stars all around. Having a true expert/ owner/ explain in detail and in depth the history of perfume and the importance of branding.. to them be able to craft (with guidance) your own scents = priceless.. Anyone wishing a truly unique yet memorable experience... and highly personalized gifts for their loved ones (And themselves of course) will enjoy this experience.

Emmanuel’s experience is one of my favorites to date! Knowledgeable, personable, accommodating and charismatic are a few adjectives that are at the top of my mind. Not only did we leave with personalized fragrances made by us but with my newly acquired knowledge, I’m equipped to sprinkle a little magic (by magic, I mean my scent “World” by Storm :-) on those I meet. Don’t second guess this experience. Book it. Thanks again Emmanuel and Luna!

Such a wonderful way to spend a couple of hours in Paris. I really enjoyed getting to know sœur if the history and mechanics behind the fragrance industry. Emmanuel was kind, funny and knowledgeable. He made the time fly and had a very natural and easy going style. Taking away a custom fragrance was an added bonus to the whole experience.
