Catering to men, women and children (eight years of age and older), Tijon offers four Fragrance Creation Experiences. Tijon, with locations in St. Martin and La Jolla, is the ONLY fragrance laboratory in the world where one can participate in the creative and fun activity by putting on a lab coat and choosing from over 350 oils in order to design a custom fragrance. It may sound daunting to some, but the fragrance experts at Tijon make it easy! Everyone leaves with his or her own handcrafted fragrance and a Tijon gift bag filled with surprises. Tijon also has a boutique which carries more than 20 signature scents created by our founder, as well as body products, jewelry and unique gift items. Since opening in November 2012, Tijon La Jolla has consistently earned 5 star reviews from customers around the world.

Celeste and Vanessa were very friendly and helpful in guiding me through the perfume making experience. Because I had so much fun in making my own perfume I would definitely recommend this experience if you are ever in La Jolla.

Hello, the cab ride is 30 minutes from the Port to our perfume laboratory. No shuttle service but you can easily catch a cab at the port. It will be totally worth your time and the highlight of your trip!
