Musée du Parfum Fragonard, Paris
For a change from the usual art museums, try visiting Musée du Parfum Fragonard, a fascinating and luxurious museum of perfume. The museum was created in 1983 by the Fragonard perfume company within a Napoleon III town-house. As you tour the site, check out the period furnishings and perfume exhibits, including antique perfume bottles, containers, toiletry sets, stills for steam distillation of perfume extracts, and more. Displays show you how perfumes are made today as well as the history of perfume manufacturing and packaging.

Of particular interest is an orgue à parfum, or a perfume organ, with tiers of ingredient bottles arranged around a balance used to mix fragrances. You won’t leave Musée du Parfum Fragonard without discovering the secrets behind their most famous scents!

  • Nice small museum, nothing phenomenal but one can't really complain since it's free. It was interesting to see all the old machinery used in distillation of oils and the old school perfume vials. There's a perfume store acting as a gift shop- or rather, the museum is what is supposed to lure you to the store. if you're interested in perfume, give it half about hour, otherwise explore the more glamorous attractions.
  • Modest collection of perfumes...parfum in metal containers..that's new...they claim the metal containers retain the parfum for 8 years
  • Be careful! New address at 5 Square de l'Opéra-Louis Jouvet, 75009
  • The tour was quite interesting. They explain the process of making perfumes and show various exhibits with quite fascinating perfume bottles. There is also a room with fascinating collection of perfume labels. The tour ends upstairs in the shop, where they present the five kinds of perfumes Fragonard makes. I guess most of the disappointed people visited this place when there were immense crowds in attendance. Ours was a quiet, relaxing visit.
  • Love Fragonard perfumes. My favorite Perfume are "Emilie" and "Belle de nuit"
