Musée du Parfum
History and exhibitsEdit
Fragonard Parfumeur established the museum in 1983 within a Napoleon III town-house built in 1860. Its rooms contain period furnishings and perfume exhibits, including antique perfume bottles, containers, toiletry sets, and stills for steam distillation of perfume extracts. Displays show how perfumes are made today and present the history of perfume manufacturing and packaging. A perfume organ on display has tiers of ingredient bottles arranged around a balance used to mix fragrances.
