START MAKING SCENTS

After some more exploring of nice we headed off to the perfume capital of the world - grasse, France - just 45 km from our flat.  We took a perfume-making course and each created our personal scent through some chemistry and selection from 200+ essential oils.  "L'Aura" - a delicate mix of earth notes with a hint of citrus. "1.414" from Jason was deemed "decidedly modern" by the instructor.  We toured the international museum of perfumery and one of the perfume studios (Gallimard) and learned all about the process of making perfume - quite fascinating.
