Free to enter, focussed on pictures by 3 painters, including Fragonard, after whom the perfume company was named. Quite interesting but not really mind blowing. Good temporary exhibition of photographs, ‘Or, Bronze et Rouille’More

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.

We enjoyed our visit very much. We walked through the ancient perfume tools from different countries and joined the tour telling us how Fragonard began many years ago. We were shown the manufacturing and study of perfumes. It was an informative and amazing experience.
