  • Very good design for the visit to the Museum. We start with an olfactory getaway in the middle of odoriferous plants and continues his experience of perfume over the centuries that can occasionally smell the note of this or that gasoline demand. Boris Vian had imagined the "pianocktail"; MIP made with perfumes? Also note that the shop is not a tourist trap and that there are "exclusive" fragrances at very reasonable prices.

  • 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
