What you'll do

Discover the world of perfumes and create your own candle

New Formula !

Act like a perfumer apprentice and discover all the secrets to realise the perfect scented candle! First, you will discover and formulate your own perfume for your candle upon our olfactive library, with a delicious tea from 'Mariage Frères'.

Then the perfumers' apprentices are going in our perfume lab to weight their own perfume and then to pour their candle, following all my tools for this, not so easy, procedure. During the class you will create your own scented candle (70g - 2.5oz, that will burn for 17 hours), but this is not it! You will also get to make a home perfume spray of your created scent!

It is so fun and pleasant to leave with your custom-made scented creation!

Passionate about Perfumery since my younger age, I started pharmaceutical studies to evolve in this universe. I then continued marketing studies into Luxury and Fragrances and I had the chance to work for well-known Houses such as Dior, Hermès and Christian Louboutin. It has been 5 years now that I started my own brand l’Aurore to propose quality perfumes and scented candles by promoting the French know-how. We can also make cutom-made perfumes, all our candles are made by hand in our workshop.

We will give you a resumé of the workshop that you can keep as a souvenir. In it you will also find all our favorite places to visit while walking around after your experience.

Fun activity while one holidays, Justine is very knowledgeable and passionate. Great location and easy to get to. I usually never do anything by myself, however I went to this class by myself and enjoyed every moment. You meet lovely people travelling and learn new skills. Would highly recommend the class 👌

Too much talking (nearly 2 hours) and not enough doing in this class, which was also overcrowded during the session I attended. More suited to complete fragrance novices than those who already have a basic knowledge of perfumes.

Interesting experience. I enjoyed the most mixing the oils for candles. The process of making candles is not unique, but the scent mixture is the key.

I enjoyed the afternoon with Justine exploring scents and understanding the olfactory industry better! Really interesting and making your own candle was exciting!

This was such a great class! Justine was very knowledgeable and a great teacher. I loved making my candle, it smells so good! I would definitely recommend this if you’re looking for an interesting, unique experience in Paris.
