Thanks for your input!  I checked Fragonard and Galimard websites, both offer perfume-making courses in Eze-Village and Grasse, and there is a huge difference in prices. 

Has anyone ever been to one of these courses?

Hi, I picked up a great brochure the other day for one of the perfumerie's in Grasse called "Gallimard". For 45euros you get a guided  tour of the factory, learn about the history of perfume, and work with their perfume master "Nose" who teaches the basic principles of creating your own formula which they personalise and bottle for you (100ml). You also get a diploma certificate at the end as "honary master parfumer". Duration is 2 hrs. I think theres approx  15 minute walk from town centre of Grasse to get to Galimard, otherwise Fragonard is centrally located. Let me know if/when you complete this... I've been contemplating this myself but didn't liken the over commercialised vibe of Fragonard factories.

Hello there! I live in Grasse and I know for sure that one of the giants of perfume - Fragonard do such courses, you create your own perfume with a group.Check their website - if you scroll down the main page you will see the button "Ateliers,apprenti parfumeur", click it and you will be able to read about all the details. I am pretty sure that other companies of perfume do the same thing,so just check their website for more info :) good luck!
