Spent about an hour walking round looking for this place, which is inside the Perfumeria Regia shop, in a locked room. I wouldn't waste your time going here, we were charged 3 euros each for the privilege! Some of the bottles are of interest and you are supposed to get a 10 per cent discount on perfume at the shop,... More

It's not a museum as advertised, just an ordinary perfume shop. Doesn't worth the visit except you wanna buy some perfumes.

You pay €5 to get in and there's no information, no real order to the bottles, no sense of organisation. The staff in the shop seemed to find us a hindrance. They do have a phenomenal collection of bottles but it's completely disorganised and underdeveloped. What little information they do have is in Catalan and even for someone fluent in... More

I really enjoyed the perfume museum,as it takes you nicely through the history of perfumes. However,it is not the easiest to find (back of a perfume shop) and it would really be much better with more text explaining individual pieces. Otherwise worth a visit!

This museum is a bit hard to locate, moreover, it occupies a back room in a perfume shop. When you enter it, you find yourself in a new world where centuries are neatly arranged on glass shelves in the form of various perfume containers. From the VIth century BC till nowadays - all is there! Small it may be, but... More

We had trouble finding this 'museum' as we didn't realise it was a room at the back of a perfume shop, and had walked past the shop many times! A member of staff must have seen our puzzled faces as we struggled to locate the museum, and she kindly led us to the office where we paid entry to a... More

A stunning collection of thousands of perfumes in beautiful bottles. Many many collections of old and hardly known perfumes. A must for anyone who loves perfume. I cnnot believe the previous comment `don't bother' - morons!! - what more could anyone want to see?! Well worth the £5.

Staying in Eixample

Neighborhood Profile
Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district, Passeig de Gracia, is lined with high-end international designer stores. Not to be outdone, the glitz and glamour of this zone is perhaps best exemplified by the comfortable and lavish five-star hotels that flank the divine and modernistic buildings from some of the world’s most recognized architects such as Gaudi and Montaner.
