Discover Guy Delforge's perfume workshop at the Citadel of Namur

  • Shopping

Guy Delforge's perfume shop, at the very heart of the Citadel of Namur, offers a fascinating underground experience. This unique trail in Wallonia reveals the many steps necessary to make a fragrance. The artist, rewarded many times for its talent, wanted to share his passion through this guided tour.

An exceptional setting

The Guy Delforge workshop, quite unique in Northern Europe, retraces the full story of a fragrance.

Often compared to a conductor creating a symphony of fragrances, the perfumer decided to renovate part of the former military fort of Namur. He chose this stunning historical setting to open his boutique in 1990.

The shop features a permanent exhibition on the world of perfumes.

Practical information

The trail is offered as a guided tour. Visitors can explore the exhibition and boutique at their own pace.
