Musée du parfum
Among all of Paris’ famous and talked about cultural icons are smaller and lesser known museums that offer an intimacy the larger ones may simply lack. Tucked behind the Opéra Garnier and the grands magasins is the Musée du Parfum, founded by the celebrated perfume brand Fragonard. If you’re a beauty buff, you’ll love tracing the history and evolution of perfume objects and manufacturing tools and the centuries’ worth of secrets and knowledge are unveiled each day to the museum’s many guests.
