  • Amazing place, other-worldly experience, when I close my eyes I can still smell the museum.
  • It is an amazing place to visit๐Ÿ†๐ŸŽ–๐Ÿฅ‚
  • Amazing experience, highly recommend!
  • Absolutely amazing place. Truly a must for all the perfume lovers out there.
  • I decided to celebrate my daughter's birthday with a workshop, learning to make perfume. We chose the platinum package. I can actually advise any package, as Daniela is an amazing hostess, making you feel welcome and taken care of, doesn't matter how long you decide to visit. My kids couldn't stop bubbling about the interesting history of perfume. Facts they never knew before, but they listened intently as our hostess shared her love for fragrances. The best part for us is the change to do this as a family together. Strongly recommend you visit this museum, and if you have time, do a workshop. It's the most unique attraction in Cape Town.
