of Perfumes at Tijon


Create your own perfume at this Grand Case boutique. by Rona Gindin Why pick up a duty-free perfume in Philipsburg when you can create your own instead? Tijon, an airy boutique near the restaurants of Grand Case, invites you to play perfumier for a day. You’ll be drawn into the world of florals, fruits and woods as soon as you step into Tijon, a grand white space with blue and yellow accents. The store stocks its own body lotions and sun protectors, and you’ll find them tempting. But to invent your exclusive scent … now that’s a rare experience. Tijon offers three fragrance-making options. The most popular, Mix & Match, is an immersive experience that lasts 60 to 90 minutes. Upon arrival, you’ll be handed a gift bag with a 15 mil sample of one of Tijon’s 22 signature fragrances. Then the immersion will begin. You and up to 19 fellow students will be invited to peruse the perfume organ – a multi-shelf display holding small bottles of more than 300 scented oils. The oils are divvied up by aroma family. These include flowers (violet, gardenia), French (honey, spearmint) and fruits (lime, mandarin), plus base oils like amber, musk, vanilla and sandalwood. Fun extras like chocolate and butterscotch appeal to children. Once you know what you like, you’ll be handed a white lab coat and ushered into the lab, visible from the showroom through glass. Guided by owners John and Cyndi Berglund or a staffer, you’ll be told about the perfume-making process. To begin, you’ll choose one of 12 pre-mixed oils, containing a top, middle and base oil. You’ll drip some into a beaker, then add any three additional oils from the organ’s 300, and stir. You’ll repeat that

process using different scents in two more beakers. Then put a dab of each concoction on your skin, sniff, and choose your favorite. You’ll stir in the rest of the ingredients, such as distilled water and alcohol, and choose a name. Take your 1.85-ounce bottle of perfume and join the champagne toast. Mix & Match costs $85 and is held weekdays at 10:30 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. Reservations are recommended. Cruise ship passengers often prefer the Fragrance in a Flash 10- to 20-minute version ($59), while more serious students opt for the two- to-three-hour version Perfume Class 101 ($129; reservations required). So pleased are customers with their distinctive dabs that many order extras online once they return home. “We’ll even get orders for eight bottles that someone wants to give as gifts for the holidays,” John Berglund says. Tijon is very much a family business. The business is named after the Berglund’s son, Tyler, whose name is blended with John’s to make “Tijon.” Daughter Rachelle now runs a second Tijon, located in La Jolla, California. Tijon’s St. Martin boutique is at 1 L’Esperance Road. The website is



SHOPPING SENSATIONS Shopping on French Saint Martin and Dutch Sint Maarten offers high quality duty-free goods delivered in charming island style. The island has a well-earned reputation as a shopper’s paradise. Here you will find the best prices on local crafts & arts, exotic foods, jewelry, liquor, tobacco, electronics, leather goods, as well as most elegant designer goods. Duty free, Tax-free shops abound. You can literally shop till you drop.

There are two main shopping areas on the island, chic Marigot on the French side, and Front Street in the heart of Philipsburg, on the Dutch side. The entire center and marina area of Marigot is a lovely shopping district with old CrĂŠole houses, bistro bars, cafes, restaurants, fashion and designer boutiques, jewelers and perfume shops. Philipsburg features over a mile of shopping. In addition to Front Street, there is Old Street with attractive gift stores and art galleries, and Back Street with a colorful local market, souvenir shops, and inexpensive clothing. Enjoy your shopping spree on either side of the island!



PHILIPSBURG The capital of Dutch Sint Maarten, Philipsburg, is rich in history and abundant in shopping. Founded in 1763 by John Philips, a Scottish captain in the Dutch Navy, the town’s history is still felt when you pass by the historic Court House that was built in 1793. Philipsburg became a bustling center for international trade including salt mining, which was the Dutch settler’s main interest in this unique island. Remnants of the original Great Salt Pond can still be seen while driving along Walter A. Nisbeth Road, also known as Pondfill Road. On most days, it is impossible to miss the gigantic vessels docked at the A.C. Wathey Pier. Great Bay, the bay in front of Philipsburg, can accommodate six large cruise ships at once. In fact, the pier was expanded in 2009 to accommodate the world’s largest mega class cruise ships. Today, Philipsburg is arguably the premier Caribbean destination for the world’s largest cruise lines. With its compact nature and easy-to-follow street plan, Philipsburg is made for pedestrian traffic and an ideal shopping experience. The Boardwalk, along the beautiful shores of Great Bay, is the place to grab a drink or have lunch while listening to live music. Head on up to Front Street for fantastic shops packed with jewelry, electronics and clothing stores. Front Street is also home to a variety of points of interest, including the St. Maarten Museum and the St. Maarten Guavaberry Company. Although guavaberries grow throughout the Caribbean, St. Maarten has taken their cultivation to special heights, and the St. Maarten Guavaberry Company offers liqueur, barbecue sauce, jam and other goods all made with the island’s native fruit. Make sure to stop by for free samples of their delicious Rum blends including the famous Guavaberry Colada. Turn north onto any alley (Dutch: steeg) or street (Dutch: straat) and you will find a busy shopping area, Back Street. The market here offers a taste of Caribbean flair with a variety of clothing stores and kiosks with great bargains. Getting from the Resort to Philipsburg couldn’t be easier. Take Aqua Mania’s water taxi, rent a car on site from Dollar/Thrifty & Paradise car rental, or ride the free bus each Wednesday and Friday. The air-conditioned bus tour, which is provided by AMA Jewellers, includes cold drinks and a guided tour that covers the history and interesting landmarks of Sint Maarten. The bus tour is hosted by Don Sharman, a 15-year resident of the island with a breezy personality and a million jokes (he considers himself more a showman than a tour guide). Don will guide you to many not-to-be-missed places including a courtyard homage to Holland, which features a restaurant, a sidewalk bar and a shop that sells Dutch cheese and chocolate. Once you experience the flavor of Philipsburg, you are sure to crave another trip to the Caribbean’s shopping capital.



MARIGOT Set sail from Simpson Bay Resort & Marina or enjoy a 10 min drive over the causeway, to experience French flavor in the port town of Marigot. Explorers will be well rewarded with an adventure unlike anything the Dutch side of the island has to offer. In contrast to the bustling cruise ship port of Philipsburg, Marigot is home to luxury yachts and charming boutiques. The cafés and bars along the marina offer some of the best pizza on the island, daily specials and fresh mussels, and remain packed with patrons throughout the day. Inland from the marina and those bustling cafés, you’ll find the Rue de la Liberté and the beginning of your shopping experience in Marigot. Shops offer many of the same high-end goods you’ll find at shops in Philipsburg – perfume, jewelry and clothing to name a few – but with a decidedly French influence. Many of the best boutiques can be found in the West Indies Mall, which lies at the base of a hill. Fort St. Louis sits at the top of the very same hill. Built in 1767 from plans developed by King Louis XVI, more famous for being guillotined during the French Revolution, this squat stone fort is one of the must-see sites in Marigot and offers a stunning view of the entire city. Another, perhaps more macabre site, is the city’s cemetery, which dates back to the early 19th century. The French Caribbean influence will be noticeable to anyone who has been to New Orleans and seen similar aboveground crypts. Along with these sites, visitors should be sure to hit Marigot’s open-air market, which takes place each Wednesday and Saturday from 6 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the Rue de France, along the wharves. This is a wonderful time to enjoy many of the local farmer’s treats such as sweet potatoes, coconuts, tropical fruits, local spices, fresh fish, and of course the various local arts and crafts.


For Francophiles who visit the Resort, Marigot is a must-see. We recommend getting there nice and early so you can start your day with a warm croissant and a cup of freshly brewed coffee at one of the many cafes. After visiting the open-air market and the high-end shopping in the many unique boutiques, stop by Marina Royale. This marina is more than just a home for the yachts. Today, you will find a variety of waterfront cafes, craft shops, bistros, and a wonderful museum with Haitian artwork. Check out the view from Fort St. Louis and visit the cemetery along the Rue de Sandy Ground as you head out of town. This spectacular French Caribbean journey begins from your island home, Simpson Bay Resort & Marina. Experience Marigot by hopping on the Monday Island Bus Trip, spending a day or two exploring via the daily boat ride with Aqua Mania or by renting a car with Dollar/Thrifty & Paradise car rental. With as many boutiques and fabulous restaurants for which the island is renowned – France is calling!

& Night Life The island, we’ve been told, has the most restaurants per square mile in the Caribbean. Sint Maarten and Saint Martin are truly international destinations making up the gastronomic capital of the Caribbean.

When it comes to dynamic dining and nightlife, St. Maarten / St. Martin offers something for everyone.
















The tropical dry forest of Pic Paradis is a habitat not found elsewhere on St. Maarten. The abundance and diversity of birds at this site is the highest for this and surrounding islands. While nothing is far from anything else on Saint Maarten, the island’s highest point, Pic Paradis, is the starting point for many walks, and can be accessed on foot or by car. However it’s worth the effort: from the 1,391 foot (424 meter) summit you’ll see panoramic views of Saint Martin, the surrounding sea and neighboring islands laid out like a map. The site can be accessed by driving to the top of Pic Paradis where public access allows you to hike down, or from below at the private nature reserve of Loterie Farm, which has many amenities including a restaurant, pool, and rope courses. Guided tours are available and reserve staff maintains the trail. The trees provide shade and relief from the heat with occasional lookouts to enjoy the view of the ocean and surrounding valley. Birding is especially good in the afternoon.


OF THE WORLD on pic paradis

The climate of St Martin is basically dry, except for Pic Paradis, which receives a lot more rain than down on the lowlands. The road to Pic Paradise leads off the main island ring road near Friar’s Bay Beach on the west coast. Towards the summit the road can only be navigated by four-wheel drive. Alternatively, you can follow the road on foot and with the aid of a map take a different route down, to descend on either the French or Dutch side. On foot, nature-lovers will love the lush tropical vegetation here, the vegetation gets thicker the higher you climb. The air gets a little cooler also so it’s a good place to live, you’ll see some beautiful homes one the way. Once at the top there are some great views of Orient Bay, Orleans, Philipsburg, Marigot and Simpson Bay Lagoon. As you can see hiking is the main activity here, however also you can try the Flyzone, where - strapped in a harness - you can fly on a cable over the forest canopy.





acation is all about relaxing and having fun. Here are a few tips to make sure your stay on island is nothing but smooth sailing.

GRAND CASE Two nations, two names. Two types of vacations, casinos, beaches and jungle. St. Martin/Sint Maarten is an exotic rum cocktail of French cuisine, Dutch ambience and Caribbean relaxation set on a 37-squaremile island in a sparkling sea of aquamarine. In French St. Martin you have the opportunity to feel the Mediterranean flavor in a tropical way in Grand Case. About 15 minutes by car beyond Marigot and nestled in a northern crook on the French side of Saint Martin, you will find Grand Case, a tiny outpost of French civilization, with an inordinate number of excellent restaurants and a couple of top-notch boutique hotels. Grand Case is a French/Creole small town with kids doing wheelies on bikes, and bougainvillea spilling over picket fences. Top that off with a lovely beachside setting, a main street lined with seriously good restaurants, and an airport where commuter-size airplanes buzz Main Street at regular intervals daily. It’s like a French Mayberry, except here Aunt Bea is a 5-star chef. The town’s low-slung Creole architecture evokes the feel of France’s other New World possessions, such as New Orleans. Grand Case is famously known for it’s delicious French Gourmet food and features more than two dozen restaurants on its mile-long main street. People come from all over the island to these restaurants that are located all along the Grand Case Boulevard.

63 You will see why this town is beloved by tourists and locals for its gourmet cuisine. You can obtain food at very reasonable prices, and if your budget allows, a first class dining experience. Indulging in a delectable French meal after a long day in the sun is one of Grand Case’s greatest pleasures. Cap off your evening by sipping local rum as you marvel at the “green flash” of the sun kissing the sea good night. Late at night the streets tend to be crowded and some of the restaurants close on Mondays. Many of the restaurants offer you free shots of their homemade rum after you have finished your meal or if you order dessert. Boating, snorkeling, diving…there are endless ways to explore the aquamarine waters of Grand Case. This very Caribbean beach is unique as it combines beach fun with village life! The Bay of Grand Case is also the perfect place for a sunset stroll. The sunset views from the Eastern end are magnificent. And while you are enjoying your walk, you can get a firsthand impression of the panoramic views of the bay. Grand Case has a perfect mix of attractions for a truly Caribbean vacation. It is as Caribbean as you can get and at the same time has all the flavors of French ‘haute cuisine’ and ‘savoir vivre’. Spend the day on one of the calmest beaches on the island, perfect for children, but with beach bars lively enough to keep the parents amused. The area comes alive at night when the finest restaurants in the Caribbean show off their best.



Resort Tips



Please take a few minutes to read this section and familiarize yourself with Simpson Bay Resort & Marina’s regulations and the additional services available. We appreciate your cooperation in helping all our members and guests enjoy their vacation, and in helping our staff maintain the resort in tiptop condition. We trust you will have a wonderful stay at Simpson Bay Resort & Marina. Please stop by the Membership Sales Office to renew old acquaintances, pick up the latest information on where to go and what to do, or learn more about the advantages of becoming a member here.




The Resort staff will do everything possible to make your stay pleasant and comfortable and if a problem should arise please report it to the Front Desk. You can rest assured that the matter will be taken care of as quickly as possible, often within minutes. Aside from maintenance requests, situations sometimes occur as a result of human error, for example, confusion over similar sounding names or breakages during Saturday unit changes. Accidents will happen and rather than expecting some form of complimentary compensation, a sincere apology from resort personnel should suffice. The Resort is not a hotel nor is it managed as such. It is non-profit and member dues cover operating expenses only. There are no funds to cover free dinners, extra nights, or gifts. The cost of such compensatory awards would come directly from member dues. Accepting this fundamental difference is essential to understanding why compensation is not permitted for any minor inconvenience you might encounter during your visit.

VISITOR POLICY Simpson Bay Resort & Marina is a private club and access is controlled. All members, guests and other visitors must register at the Front Desk upon arrival. May we suggest that you use discretion when inviting new acquaintances to your unit. All members, guests and visitors must agree to follow the published resort regulations and those of the affiliated facilities they may use during their stay. The Resort also reserves the right to terminate the use of resort facilities to anyone refusing to comply with the rules. The law of St. Maarten, to the exclusion of the laws of any other jurisdiction whatsoever, shall apply to and shall govern, and the courts and authorities of Country St. Maarten shall have exclusive jurisdiction over any claim arising from any accident, injury, or illness occurring during your stay at the Resorts or as a consequence thereof.
