This was located very close to our hotel, so we stopped in to check it out. Although there is certainly an impressive array of perfumes and cosmetics inside, they are all things that are for sale...more like a store than a museum.More

Dear Purplerain, we are sorry that you didn't enjoy the Museum. Althought the perfumery and the museum share same adress, both are different business. We will do our best that this kind of missunderstanding it will not repeat again.

It's not a museum as advertised, just an ordinary perfume shop. Doesn't worth the visit except you wanna buy some perfumes.

You pay €5 to get in and there's no information, no real order to the bottles, no sense of organisation. The staff in the shop seemed to find us a hindrance. They do have a phenomenal collection of bottles but it's completely disorganised and underdeveloped....More

I really enjoyed the perfume museum,as it takes you nicely through the history of perfumes. However,it is not the easiest to find (back of a perfume shop) and it would really be much better with more text explaining individual pieces. Otherwise worth a visit!

Eixample
Passing through the glorious Plaça Catalunya, you
enter the newer city district of Eixample, literally
translated as “extension,” which immediately becomes
recognizable by its more spacious streets and elegant
atmosphere. The main artery of this sizable district,
