A really interesting small museum in a lovely part of Paris. The assistant who showed us around was very knowledgeable, neat and well-groomed and made the visit memorable. She was perfectly fluent and personable and answered all our questions fully. There were only 5 in our group, but they still took us round promptly and took time to ensure we enjoyed the museum and could ask as many questions as we wished. I liked the displays about how perfume is made and the ingredients used by Fragonard and felt that the shop was also very good - with many of the company's great products for sale. They also wrapped our purchases beautifully.

This was part of Paris Pass. The actual making of the perfume was simple, yet I learned a lot about perfume itself. the guide was wonderful and informative. I usually do not buy souvenirs after events like this, yet I did end up buying a set of Fragonard perfume at a great price ( I believe the set price is only offered at the museum) . I still enjoy the great quality French perfume I bought and wished I bought more. They are very different from Dior or Chanel has the quality is excellent.

I have visited Fragonard in Provence many times, but this was the first visit to the museum in Paris. The tour was interesting, our guide spoke good English, and the exhibits were professional and informative. We especially liked trying our hand at discerning 8 different scents. Of course, there were products to buy after the tour, but we loved the choices and found great souvenirs.

After waiting in the queue for just one couple to be dealt with that took 15mins I had to check if I could just go up yo the museum. Advised yes so made my way up to find no tour guide. No one there to go to so was totally mystified as to what was going on. Waked around 2 rooms that really didn't inspire me and in 10mins it was done.
There is a shop as you leave that explained that sometimes the tours happen sometimes not!
Had a look at some perfumes had a spray like one and asked what was in it. Told no idea sorry.
Firstly a total lack if organisation on the tours and a lack staff and coordination. Probably the worst organisation I have seen of a museum. Secondly if you're selling perfume at a museum might be an idea you use staff that actually have a knowledge on perfume.
Don't bother going -there is far better places to go.

We decided to visit this museum on a whim and it was one of the best things we did in Paris. I wouldn't bring young children because you are learning all about the history of perfume for a solid hour, but it was amazing seeing the process of how perfume is made. I would definitely go back.

The Tour is so worth it! Really appreciated the help from our tour guide. It felt like a real paid for tour. But its totally free, and heck now I even know how to use perfume. I have been doing it wrong my whole life :) When I come back, I'm buying a lot more. I only got one to try it out, but now that I've had it a while, I am so bad I didn't buy more for friends and family. The prices are also very reasonable. Buying later online is sooo expensive (having it shipped to the USA). Just do it! :)

This museum was fascinating. It is very informative, includes many displays and has a very soft sell at the end. In fact you can skip the soft-sell if you prefer. This is a gem hidden behind all of Paris' architectural giants. But at the end of our trip, it was highlighted as a "favorite" by family members.

The Musee du Parfum, was an interesting walk through the perfume making history in France. The tour guides are engaging. The visit ends with an opportunity to purchase perfume from Fragonard's collection but it's not a hard sell!

Visiting a perfume museum was not originally in our plan whilst visiting Paris but I’m so glad we did! The history of the museum was so interesting, our host was wonderful (she spoke so knowledgeable but was definitely not boring) and the perfume testing was amazing. We were not expecting this to be a free tour so that was an added bonus. Love the discount for bulk purchases too.

It is free and has guided tours in English and French.
The museum it self is about the history of the perfume and the guide was exceptional.
It has little games that play with your senses. For perfume lover I do recommend the visit.
It's a small visit 45/60 min but for the price it's worthy.
