The museum gave an insight into the history of the building and Fragonard perfumes. However, the bulk of the museum is taken up with a showroom. Great for a visit but be prepared to do some serious shopping afterwards.

There is a historical aspect to this place, but I wouldn't call it a museum. Fragonard is a French perfume that is only made in France. This is one of the locations you can purchase their perfumes, soaps, etc. There is a guide who takes...More

Free "museum", I wouldn't really call it a museum, it's more of a show room where you have a guided tour, none the less it's very interesting and I enjoyed it very much. If you arrive and see a big line, don't worry about your...More

Not what we were expecting - more a shop trying to sell a selection of pre-made perfumes. Crowded and very touristy - the shop assistants were helpful!More

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.

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...More

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.
