Read the story of Tijon’s creation with an autographed book that reminds us that dreams do come true.
This remarkable story tells of a happily married couple who abandoned the corporate rat race in order to open a perfumery in the French Caribbean and create a custom line of fragrances.
What originated in a family vacation on the beach, eventually became an unlikely but thriving business – a perfumery on the French-Dutch island of Saint Martin. Though he chose a career in law, John Berglund’s passion lay in the chemistry sets of his youth and his lifelong fascination with perfume. John eventually built a full-fledged lab in the basement of his home in Atlanta, where he spent countless hours experimenting with new concoctions. He began to dream of opening a perfumery in a tranquil island paradise and, ultimately, set out to make it happen – no matter what.
Berglund’s account of his Caribbean adventure is a fun-filled, factual tale of conflicts, contrasts and celebrations. As he and his wife, Cyndi, embed themselves in the eccentric French-side community of Grand Case, they learn incredible lessons about business, success and themselves. Their story may just inspire others to follow in their footsteps, trading business casual attire for shorts and a pair of flip-flops!
