European Heritage Days are coming these September 21 and 22, 2019 in Paris. It's the occasion to discover the French capital in a new light and make many discoveries. And for this 36th edition how about going for a unique tour? We suggest you the Musée du Parfum by Maison Fragonard.
Set a stone's throw from the Opéra Garnier, this uncommon museum in Paris takes you to the fascinating world of perfumery. Often said to be an art, perfume wasn't born yesterday! At the Musée Fragonard, return to the History of perfumery, from the Antiquity to the 20th century but not only.
Here, you'll discover the entire process to create a fragrance. From selecting the raw materials to the creation of bottles without forgetting the distillation, you'll know everything thing on the matter. In a room that looks like a perfumery factory, you'll walk around stills while in the olfaction room, you'll try your nose and awaken your senses.
On European Heritage Days, sign up and take part in 30-minute guided tours without queuing. To do so, meet on September 21 and 22, 2019 at 9:30 a.m., 10:30 a.m., 11:30 a.m., 12:30 p.m., 2:30 p.m., 3:30 p.m., 4:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. (Saturday).
If the nose field fascinates you or if you've always dreamed of creating your very own fragrance, we've got some good news. On Saturday September 21, 2019, you're invited to fill in the shoes of a parfumier thanks to a workshop to create your perfume. You can create a fragrance around the flower of the year and leave with your very own creation in a small bottle. This workshop is followed by a guided tour of the museum. Meet at 10 a.m., 11 a.m., 12 p.m., 2 p.m., 3 p.m., 4 p.m. and 5 p.m.
All you need to fall in love with the art of perfumery.
