  • Once in Grasse, of course that this museum is worth visiting. Several floors are worth visiting just to be carried by this interesting discovery. Interactive it fills the nose of beautiful scents and you transported back centuries with sumptuous objects but also reminds you the dates of your favorite perfumes. The price of admission is a little more than 5 euros which is reasonable.

  • A complete Museum (allow time) with very beautiful pieces. A museum also resolutely modern with interactive parts (perfect for children).

  • Different from the other museums in perfumery, very smart comparisons, sympathetically fortuitous coaching

  • It doesn't look like it from outside but this museum is actually huge and goes through everything about perfumery. You will discover the evolution of the aspect of our society through the ages with various objects, videos and devices to test your senses. Very full, very informative but everything isn't in good shape. Most of the headset to watch the videos don't work. Several devices to test yur smell are missing. Apart from this inconvenience that cost my review one star, everything is great. open event on Thursdays. The price is €4 or €6 when there is a temporary exposition and students get a 50% discount.
  • Beautiful museum with tons of things to see and do! We were there maybe only an hour to 2 hours, but it could have easily taken 2-4 hours to complete. Lots of interactive kids things to do as well. For 3 euros for students and 4 euros for adults it is well worth the visit! A highlight of Grasse in my opinion.
  • Not worth the trip. Too plain. However, Fragonard is worth visiting but I found out their perfumes odor doesn't last on the body. An hour and it's gone.
  • Very enjoyable exhibit covering everything up to the modern day. A blend of fashion, industry, political and social history alongside perfume.
  • Large and informative, with stations dotted around where you can test your sniffing skills
