  • Very different from other museums and newly opened. Located very close to the Huguenot Monument at the end of the main street.

  • Amazing place !!! Set in stunning surroundings, the collection is outstanding and the staff are very friendly. Combine it with Perfume Workshop and their surrounding sculpture garden .Definitely worth the visit when you are in beautiful Franschhoek - one of South Africa's gems.
  • A great place to come and see! Extremely educating when it comes to perfumes. And their workshop is amazing! You finally leave the place having your own perfume, made by yourself! I loved it!
  • The perfume museum is a great place to experience the historic significance of the perfume through the ages. You can see such a beautiful and extensive collection of antique and rare perfume bottles and learn about the history of the perfume as well. Perfume workshop is truly one of the most enjoyable and exciting experiencewe ever had. Thank you Dimo and Daniela
