Fun, free, and open every day of the week! When you enter the Le Musee de Parfum, you walk up a gorgeous, winding staircase and you're greeted by endless display cases of perfume that trace back through the 5,000 years of perfume history. This is a collection of antique perfume bottles from all different eras and made from incredibly diverse materials. Some of the perfumes aren't even in bottles, rather antique porcelain vases and historic containers. There are so many rooms with so many shapes of perfumes- large sets that would take up your whole dresser or just a small little squirt bottle to keep in your pocket. After the tour is complete, get your noses ready to test out a variety of present-day perfumes that can be bought at factory prices.
