Discover the world of perfumes with a behind-the-scenes tour of the Fragonard Parfumeur Museum

Fragonard have been creating perfumes using traditional techniques and modern methods since 1926. The first of Fragonard's museums, Le Musée du Parfum, is in a beautiful 19th-century town house, housing a collection of perfumery objects from throughout the ages. The second museum, the théâtre musée des Capucines, first opened in 1900 and charts 3000 years of perfume-making through a selection of Fragonard perfume bottles. Visit their miniature factory and explore a range of 19th-century copper distilling apparatus and learn the different methods for extracting raw materials.

Enjoy a culturally enriching experience while you learn the secrets of this historic perfumery, challenge your nose to an olfactive test, join a behind-the-scenes tour and enjoy a toiletry bag to take home.


  • The venue was once a theatre and then a velodrome for the elegant ladies of Paris.
  • The Museum reveals the secrets of perfume making, as well as a magnificent collection of precious perfume bottles from antiquity to the present day.
  • Experience the atmosphere of a late 19th-century perfume factory and discover the world of perfume through a scenography combining distillery and other manufacturing machinery, ancient objects, archive photos and videos.
  • Receive an exclusively-designed fabric pouch as a souvenir of your visit.
