It's interesting to learn how perfumes are produced, tested and sold. Also, you'd get to know how to chose your perfume when you're buying one at a shop. Of course, I was too busy taking photographs of the beautiful interior of the old factory. Needless to say, they also have a shop inside, and if you want, they do have... More

I can't help but comment on the last post, where they use the word fraud. You still cut out the middleman by buying Fragonard products at a Fragonard shop, and if the prices are exactly the same, what is the problem? The outlet in Cannes must be quite new also, as there have only been outlets in Paris, Nice and... More

We were taken on this tour by a lovely guide.....interesting to see and hear about the 'noses'......no hard pushy selling techniques to actually buy something. Lots to choose from and some really nice scents..... I would have given this at least a 4/5 if this hadn't had happened...... After hearing about the prices for the perfumes and cutting out the...

This is a well organised place set up for tourists and those of us with limited French. I was told the (free) English tour would start in 15 minutes and it did. Our guide was fluent in English and as it turned out in German too. We had the history of the perfumery and saw the old stills and had... More

Great to see the whole process of perfume making. I bought two bottles, Eclat and Fragonard. My whole Europe trip was about shopping, and the salesgirl was very helpful with her advise and pointers.

During the Free tour, they explain and show the processes involved in perfume making and the different sources of materials they use from all different parts of the... More

She also explained to us the difference between perfume and cologne and why the price difference and why one cannot buy men perfume. The... More

I found that the tour in the perfume museum and factory was awesome. How the materials used in production, producing products in batches and packaging in the factory. Shopping for presents before Christmas in this gift shop at affordable prices would be an advantage. So much to choose from when trying scents before buying.

Excellant explanation of the history, creation, and process of perfume and the world capital of perfume. I have to admit that I wasn't interested until the tour started and even I found it interesting. Good prices available for their product as well
