Very informative visit about the perfume manufacturing industry. If you are interested, you can create your own perfume formula with the help of specialists. The process takes about one hour and you get your formula allowing you to reorder by internet. Free shipping.

It was the first time that we visited Grasse and Molinard Museum and factory. The employees were very kind and especially Corinne who guided us in the visit. She was explaining the story of the factory in an attractive way !
The perfumes are really excellent, we liked it very much.
I would like to advise this visit because it's really unique to see a real one of the French greatest perfume brand.

We gave Molinard a try after a bit of a letdown by Fragonard (the other prominent perfumer in the Grasse area).
It is housed in a beautiful, well-maintained antique building with incredible carved-wood furniture inside. The whole building had a very nice , „old-worldly”, „workshoppy” feel to it.
We took the free guided tour in French, which included a bit of history, learning about compositions and a few of their own products. Our guide was very knowledgable and keen to answer questions.
The tour ended in the museum shop, where you can purchase their perfumes and other cosmetics of their own.
Overall, we had a great time and can only recommend this place.

To make your own perfume in France was such an awesome experience, the staff was very well educated on mixing your own special potion!

Reserved a slot for kids workshop. Staff was kind, attentive and very helpful. The place was not crowded at all, they also make a free tour in the factory. It was in the low season, might differ during summer months.
