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.

September of 2014 my hubby and I were on a Norweigan cruise in which Saint Martin was one of our stops. I looked through some pamphlets and knew this was a definite stop we had to make. We took a taxi to Grand Case and found this little gem a few steps from the beach. The owners were out of... More

On Jan. 2, I spent a delightful hour mixing my own signature fragrance. I couldn't decide on my favourite so I ended up with two - I still love them both! It was a very interesting, educational and unique experience - I would do it all over again next time in St. Martin.

My husband and I visited tijon in Dec 2014, at the Grand Case in Saint Martin (French side) and did the 1 hour perfume making class. It was amazing. John and Cindy the owners were so helpful, professional and generous. They made us really feel welcomed. They provided all the necessary information on how to create a perfume. We received... More

I highly recommend taking a workshop at Tijon during your visit to beautiful St Martin. I personally took the "Mix and Match" class and was thoroughly impressed by the level of professionalism, knowledge, product quality and overall value of the experience. The owners, John and Cyndi, were wonderful from start to finish. You won't regret your decision!

I've been meaning to do this for a long time and my mother's birthday presented an excellent opportunity to create our signature scents. We took the 101 class (the longer one) and did not see those 3 hours go by. It was a 5 star experience from beginning to end. It's not just for visitors, this local enjoyed it tremendously.... More

A must do. Everytime I put this scent on, I'm reminded of my all girl trip I took this November. They scent is what triggers the memory...this scent triggers a very happy time.

Our cruise ship was coming in on a Saturday, so we booked a private class and it was well worth it. We had a fantastic time in our Perfume 101 class, creating our own perfumes with the help of Marilyn! We got to learn a lot about perfume and scent, and I felt that we got a great value for... More

On a company trip with my husband this was one of the excursions we booked. I wasn't too excited about it at first, it was my husband's idea. It was so much fun. Something fun for a group. He was actually the only male there. I made the best perfume. I love it, I wore it all summer. They have... More

During my trip to St. Martin, I had the opportunity to create my very own signature perfume and learn a lot about scents at the same time. I took the 3-hr class and had an absolute blast. Marilyn is very knowledgeable and offered great suggestions. I highly recommend this experience.

Two friends and I booked the Mix-n-Match fragrance making class in September. I've been looking forward to doing this for so long! Cindy and John were just amazing...so kind, helpful and willing to share their knowledge. I created my own fragrance, and had a matching lotion made up as well. THEN, I found out that I can just take my... More
