Fragonard Perfume Museum
Not far from the Place Vendôme, a beautiful nineteenth-century mansion houses the Musee des Parfumeries-Fragonard. The history of perfume over the last 3000 years is retraced here through a collection of flasks, porcelain scent bottles, engravings and paintings. How to distill, what kind of ingredients are used to create perfumes—this is the sort of information visitors will find out here. This museum is recommended to all those attracted by the sophisticated universe of scents.
I was a little nervous to take a group of high school students who were travel weary to a perfume museum and retail store, but it worked out beautifully. The kids were interested in almost every aspect of our brief tour, but truly loved the perfume experinece and the idea of buying Parisian Perfume for themselves, their mom's or girlfriend's back home.
The tour itself isn't lengthy, and although it is intersting, it seems to just be a slight precurser to get you into their store. But, it's worth it. The museum is also just down the street from the Paris Opera House, so if you found some members of your party bored, they could leave and find a cafe to wait in.
I myself bought Belle de Nuit, and have been very pleased with my husband's response. :)
