For most of us, Fragonard does not have a place among perfume brands of present days. Visiting this museum will help you put the label in its rightful place and offer some insight on the manufacturing process itself. An experience not to be missed, doubled...More

We brought our kids here and no one had any previous knowledge of the industry. We all found the tour quite informative and felt we all learned a lot. The tour guide was very engaged and made sure to answer questions.
