Creation of perfumes and Lavender fields
Unique experience at the Fragances de Grasse studios. What if the perfume you were wearing was only Yours, a fragrance that you will create for yourself, with your emotions and your temperament.
The challenge is to let yourself be gently led by the tip of your nose to let your pleasure and imagination speak. Alongside the Perfumer, you will draw all the ranges of emotions that odors cause to compose Your Ideal Perfume. Personalized welcome at the factory where you will discover the techniques of distillation, extraction, enfleurage and the production of essences. You will reach the fields of lavender and aromatic plants of Provence in Gourdon, classified as one of the most beautiful villages in France. Visit the “source parfumée“ and the old distillery where you can make scented candles.
In the afternoon, you will cross the Gorges du Loup which lead to the most beautiful medieval village in the hinterland of Nice: Saint Paul de Vence. In the village, each stone tells a story, the arrival of François 1st, the inspections of Vauban, the fate of large families like the Alziari and Bernardi who left their mark on the village. The façades, ramparts, houses and towers tell us about the village's rich past. Before leaving the village, savor a moment of relaxation with a glass of rosé on the Place de Pétanque. Return to your hotel and dinner.
