Owner description: Visits to this historic factory thread their way through the perfumer’s laboratory, with its perfume organ, the distillery, the maceration and filtering studios, the enfleurage rooms, and the artisanal packaging and soapmaking workshops. The museum's collection features bottles and perfume memorabilia from ancient times and all the way up to the present day. Clay perfume flasks, khol vases, scent holders, salve jars, pomanders, bergamotes, and travel kits trace 3,000 years of history.

We had a nice day out in Grasse. Taking the train from cannes (which was easy and cheap) we then caught a bus up to rue d'Antibes. To be honest, I wasn't expecting much but it was actually quite interesting (the tour is free and in English). Also, the shop was good - if you want some Espirit de Parfum grade stuff (all you ladies) at a decent price then look no further.

Skipped the tour and went straight to the shop. The staff was patient and gave nice sniffing experience. The fragrances were quite distinct and after using the products for a couple of weeks, I am greatly impressed and satisfied with my purchase.

I was on a Language Tour in the south with a student travel company and we spent the day in Grasse just to go to this perfumery. It's really informative and the tour guide really encouraged us to ask questions about the process of perfume making. You get to see every step of the process explained and even try out some scents! At the end of the tour you have the opportunity to explore the shop which has an eclectic mix of every kind of scent imaginable. You can also shop on their online website but this is a must-see!

We visited Parfumerie Fragonard (Grasse) as part of a day excursion. Our English-speaking tour was led by a friendly Italian lady who introduced us to the herbs historically used in perfume-making, distinguishing between perfumes and eau de toilettes, how 'noses' were trained etc.

The tour lasted about 45 minutes, and surprise surprise, we were taken into the shop where they gathered the group to provide at least five samples of the perfumes on sale. It was just too overpowering for my senses and therefore decided not to make impulse purchases on the day.

The tour itself was interesting and particularly worthwhile since in the perfume capital of France. For those with sensitive noses, skip the sampling at the end of the tour and explore the shop on your own accord.

Spent E3 on the toll road and it wasn't even worth that.
My partner and I both thought the fragrances were all awful ... thank god it was free as that was all it was worth.
Save your time and visit the one in Eze which is probably on your way.
