  • A very nice informative visit with a very competent guide in the world of perfumery and its history. The temporary exhibition on Christian Dior interesting too, even if sold Dior products for 30 years I would have liked something more mature. The dream was there, that's the main.

  • Well worth getting to know the International Museum of Perfume. There you will know all the history of perfume and scents that have been icons of history. Is occurring a show about the life of Cristian Dior, very interesting! You can follow and understand the evolution of perfume with the history of mankind.

  • We made the mistake to go to the shop before entering the Museum, unwelcoming staff or even annoyed of our error..! We start the tour. long and tedious... between the different rooms of the Museum... insufficient lighting, Museum very moderately maintained. Big disappointment... too little explanation for the production of a perfume... However bottles of perfume lovers will love.

  • Some parts are interesting, but not really worth the visit. Better off going to one of the factories where things are explained better and they're free
  • The museum focuses mainly on the end product: many bottles and labels are on display. Would have expected a more comprehensive view on the process of perfume making. Also museum layout is a little unclear in some areas.
  • Worth paying 3€ for the visit. It also has some fun games in between which will help you remember the displayed items better :)
  • This is an interesting museum, I wished it had more practical parts to it. I really enjoyed the village Grasse it was located in.
  • Very close to the museum you can find Fragonard where you can basically See the same stuff for free. Save the money or buy some soap at Fragonard instead. An Eau de Toilette is a little bit more expensive though.
