Next, we’ll travel to the lovely town of Candes St.Martin. Home of a renowned French perfumer, we’ll tour his private atelier where you’ll be initiated to the art of creating personal fragrances. Learn how to handle the rarest and most precious essential oils (agarwood, roses, jasmine, tuberose, sandalwood, civet, ambergris, etc.) which he has treasured in his private collection.
Create your own custom scent to take home. Our experience continues with an aromatic homemade lunch harmonizing local specialties and fragrances like rose, jasmine, and sandalwood perfume for a truly one-of-a-kind meal.
Our adventure continues to the famed Chateau Villandry. Built-in the 15th century, this magnificent estate is home to some of the most beautiful gardens in France. Said to rival Versai, it’s one of the last renaissance castles in the Loire valley. Gather in inspiration as we tour the numerous ornamental gardens, hedge mazes, ponds, and flower gardens not to mention the Chateau itself!
After resting from a day of exploring, join us in the evening for another delicious homemade dinner.
