As a collector of perfumes, getting to visit this little fragrance museum and working perfume factory was a real treat for me! I went with my family, and we spent several hours exploring its multi- story treasures. The last time I went it was very run down and less than exceptional, but it would seem Fragonard has really gotten a facelift and is now fluid, functional, and beautiful! They have small but excellent displays dating from early Egypt, Greece, and Rome and other fascinating historical bottles to see.
There are guided tours throughout the small factory in at least French, German, Italian and English, with questions and answers and fun activities throughout. The culmination of the tour ends in the Fragonard boutique where they expose you to some of their popular scents, teach you how to not kill your nose when testing perfume, and play a sort of guessing game as to what notes are in each fragrance. Once the guided portion is finished, you are free to revisit any portion that you would like to, or simply purchase fragrance till your heart is content (or not - up to you).
A few practical points to note:
- The visit is completely Free
- Their bathrooms are clean
- They have limited free parking
- They DO have an elevator but you have to contact the person on the 1'st (american 2nd) floor to access it from ground floor
- the people we encountered were all super nice and helpful!
