Close to the Opéra Garnier and a few steps from the Galeries Lafayette and the Printemps Haussmann, get ready to live a new olfactory experience.

With its savoir-faire and professional experience, the Fragonard Parfumerie offers you the opportunity to discover the secrets of perfume manufacturing, from its genesis to its finish: raw materials, picking, extraction, distillation, formulation, industrialization, bottling and of course the creative process and the nose profession.

Trace its history from ancient Egypt to the 20th century, through nearly 300 works of art: kohl pots, pomanders, perfume burners, potpourri, salt bottles…. The museum's team of mediators will tell you a thousand fascinating anecdotes about this incredible collection. What is musk, how did one perfume oneself at the court of the Sun King…? And it's free!

The Perfume Museum was the first to open in Paris in 1983. After months of renovation and enlargement, it now houses a collection enriched by numerous acquisitions recently made by Françoise Costa. Unusual, rare and precious, these new works of art are added to an already very complete set, also including objects of curiosity, such as a civet, a trebuchet or objects of production and extraction of perfume plants.

Creative workshop

The museum also offers you the opportunity to let your senses speak for themselves in a Perfumer's Apprentice Workshop. You will learn during 1h30, under the guidance of a professional perfumer, to combine aromatic notes, citrus fruits and orange blossom to create your own eau de Cologne. You will leave with your work in an elegant personalized 100ml bottle with its pouch, a diploma signed by the teacher and your perfumer apprentice apron.
