  • Being Grasse the perfume capital, a visit to this museum should not miss. Structured on several levels, from raw materials to get to perfume creation. Inside the Museum there are also small greenhouses where you can see numerous plants from which are extracted the essences. There is also a permanent exhibition displaying numerous ampullae used over the centuries for the conservation of the species. Very interesting also the exposure of the first vials of perfumes currently in production. Also on display are the machines that were used in the perfume factories.

  • a few days in the back country Cannes enabled us to make a stop in the town of oily or we have walked the streets of the old town. Our steps we have trained in front of the Museum. We stayed 2 hours without us bored by learning the small and the big story through one of the perfume.

  • 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.
  • 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
  • Overall it was a really interesting visit, very good value as were the audio guides. The only criticism was the film at the beginning wasn't as effective as I am sure it was intended.
  • Good perfumes
