We enjoyed the tour of the museum and learnt about the history and methods of making perfume. After that we got to shop in the gift shop which we found was well priced and some lovely fragrances. Visited May 2012

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.
