“Enchanting and better than expected!”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

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!

“Perfume Museum & a running frangrance factory”
Reviewed 30 May 2014

Went on a day trip to see the museum and factory.This place 'Grasse' in France is well known for the Fragonard.
On top of hill,the place is quite beautiful and near to Cannes,Nice and Monaco.
Got a guide tour of fragrance factory for around 45 mins followed by the shopping of various perfumes and fragrance stuff from the factory itself.

Its a much recommended place if you are around southern region of france 'French Riviera'.

“First time on a school trip”
Reviewed 23 May 2014 via mobile

Came to Fragonard on a school field trip. Very nice place with enlgish speaking tour guides. The tour was awesome as this perfumery is a working factory and so they had staff producing the products as we were going through the tour. The tour seemed to be quick (maybe 45 minutes). The guide appeared to be knowledgable about the products and the history of perfume. The tour starts off by explaining where the different spices, woods, fruits etc come from around the world.
At the end of the tour the guide lets you sample some of the different perfumes and colognes they have. The prices are fairly reasonable for the different concentrations that you get.
I would recommend this tour to other people.
