One of the highlights is the free tour offered by the three largest perfume factories - Fragonard (boulevard Fragonard), Molinard (boulevard Victor-Hugo) and Galimard (route de Cannes). They each produce perfume essences for use by the world's most famous perfume makers and mix their own fragrances, which you can buy, together with other gifts or even make your own perfume!
Opened in 1989, the international perfume museum at Grasse follows the long history of perfumes, soap, make-up and cosmetics. It also explains the production of perfume, from harvest to the finished product. Inside, there are examples of perfume-related objects from Egyptian times to the present day. It will be closed for extensive renovation and expansion work during 2006.
