Activities for Mother's Day in Paris

Mother's Day crafts

Perfume creation workshop

Go on a two-hour olfactory journey by creating a unique perfume in your image. Candora invites you to use your sense of smell in a fun way. After testing your knowledge, the House of Perfumes invites you to assemble two to three eaux de toilettes. Once you have assembled them, your custom-made perfume is ready. You can leave with it and even record the formula to reorder it. A personal and original day gift idea for this workshop available in French and English.

Natural cosmetics workshop

Are you a fan of natural cosmetics that respect your skin and the environment? With the JE workshops, create your own products: lip sticks, face routine, cream or hair care. Something to treat yourself to on this special day.
