The basics

France can be considered the birthplace of the luxury perfume industry, and Grasse has been the center of perfume making in France for over 200 years, so it’s fitting that the town is home to the International Museum of Perfume. The exhibits here provide a unique insight into the origins of perfume production in Grasse, from the days when flowers were harvested and dried by hand right up to the present day. There’s also an interesting collection of perfume bottles from across the decades, and exhibits that invite you to smell test different essences.

Wonderful Tour of Villages in the Côte d'Azur
Alex was a wonderful driver and host. His knowledge of the region and its history greatly enhanced our experience. Alex went out of his way to take us to a place that was not in the itinerary that we wanted to see. A very special excursion for our family. Highly recommended!
