Well laid out for telling all aspects of the perfume industry from the different fragrances, sourcing of ingredients from across the world, influences of civilizations and art and craftsmanship. When I next pick up my bottle of Chanel no.5 I’ll think of this museum. (You...More

The price is really low and there are some interesting things (like the first parfume bottel or how they do parfume) but it is completely unorganized, there are some empty rooms, you get easily lost, there are no arrows or indications. Also the text is...More

I visited this museum with my partner when we took a day trip to Grasse. she really liked it but for males this is not a great place. The history was interesting but its about perfume.

Very nice museum if you like perfume. We were visiting in the warm summer and the museums climate control system did not manage to keep up. It got very warm in some areas.

An excellent museum, though the lighting of some of the exhibits could have been better. I think they just needed to change the light bulbs! Very interactive for children and informative for all. Be careful coming into Grasse station while you’re waiting for the bus...More

We really enjoyed ourselves, though if you want this to be worth your time at all, you have to be a real perfume and history of it lover. We read every piece of information, saw all the videos, so we found the museum very amusing....More

I believe it changes with the seasons. It's best to check website or check with your hotel concierge. It is a very popular destination so I'd be surprised if hours were limited.
