“Ok if you have an hour to waste”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

The place is nice but don't expect a huge and extremely interesting attraction in Grasse.
The tour is ok even if quite quick. We did expect a much bigger factory and hope to see how perfume was really made but, for safety reasons, there is not much going on.
After the tour, of course, you end up in the shop of the parfumerie..... and you might end up buying a perfume!

“Abreviated Tour and Huge Sales Pitch”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

If you only have time for one parfumerie tour, don't go here! The tour was very short and only covered one method of making parfum and most of the presentation was a sales pitch for the Molinard products. Go to Fragonard if you're really interested in learning about how parfum is made. That tour is excellent and their fragrances are more complex as well as more reasonably priced.

“A good outing for the family”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

Other than the knowledge and history one will gather from this experience, you get to shop too ! My children loved the tour and learnt how they use to produce perfume in the old days, don't think the process much has change that much .

“site worth seeing!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

While you are visiting Grasse, a mandatory visit in perfumery! The tour is free and without obligation. It teaches how a fragrance born and all stages of manufacturing. We have been little bit disappointed because the pictures are prohibited during the visit, and many things are very interesting, therefore, it is necessary to run the memory. After the tour, they lead you to the shop, and then we can find colognes, perfumes, moisturizing milks, candles and more. Prices are still high. However, even without purchase, site worth seeing!

“A bit disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2012 via mobile

We got the 20 min tour but clearly they weren't doing it in English on that day. I asked and was told no. So we learned very little except what I could glean and translate quickly to my 10 and 11 year old daughters. Ok, it was free but I've seen from other reviews that English tours are possible. So it's pot luck on that one then.
