I wrote this review but apparently it was never received. Went to the Fragonard Perfume Factory which is in Paris. Wonderful place to visit and learn about perfume. They have a shop to sell the perfume -- but not hard sale. Bought some myself.

This museum is housed in an old theatre and it is minute . If you have time do both whizz round this one in 5 minutes and then go to the nearby Fragonard museum in Rue Scribe (nearer to the Opera House) because it is bigger and better otherwise just go to Rue Scribe . The shopping at the end... More

Dont go here expecting a museum, it really is a store with some display of how to make perfume. The "museum" is one room, one third of the size of the shop! It is not a bad place for a visit if you would like to buy a cute perfume.

The tour is below average, the exhibits ok, the shop pretty expensive. i have definetly wasted my time here. If you are looking for classic french products in a stylish shop, look for the shops outside the Lourve museum.

Something in me felt like trying a french twist in my hair that morning. I was already grinning incessantly from the fresh news of a grandchild-on-the-way, when informed to get ready for a new surprise. When I asked as to the appropriateness of my attire, my-daughter-in-law assured me ,'perfect." Off we sped towards Boulevard des Capucines in the 9th arrondissement.... More

A truly feminine and elegant place. Extraordinary perfumes that will enchant you and lighten as well, dear madame... The tour in the museum is free, however a bit disappointing. The information it provides may be written in a one page leaflet but the exhibits are worth seeing. The perfume shop, however, is breathtaking and it is worth spending your money... More
