Musee International de la Parfumerie


Museums and Art Galleries

Grasse is the capital of perfumery in Europe, some say even the world and the Musee International de la Parfumerie pays homage to all things perfume from processing raw materials to historical antiques associated with make-up and perfume (including one of Marie Antoinette's travel cases).

Visitors can take a tour through the Museum and find out exactly how the essences are created and blended and the perfume is distilled and extracted until you see the finished product on sale.

The Musee International de la Parfumerie was inaugerated in 1989 and in October 2008 re-opened after a four year refurbishment almost doubling the size of its exhibits.

There's an awful lot of Museum here for your money, although it can get incredibly busy in the afternoon during the summer months so we recommend visiting in the morning or late afternoon/evening.

Entrance costs 3 Euro for permanent exhibitions and 4 Euro for temporary exhibitions.

The Museum is open daily from 10h - 18h except on Tuesday when it remains open until 21h00.
