We went to the factory/showroom at Grasse two days ago. Just stumbled upon the Paris shop whilst strolling , so I bought some hand cream for a friend. Same prices as the factory!! Thought it would be cheaper at Grasse.

This is not really a museum, but rather a lovely little perfume shop. The shop itself is quite elegant and as for the perfumes - well, let's say they are an acquired taste.

It was extremly crowded and very small museum. I think that it is too small to call as museum. It it more like a shop with a small exhibition about scent production! However, they have nice and affordable perfumes.
