Grasse Fragonard Perfumery (Parfumerie Fragonard) Tours

As important to French culture as Paris and paté, the art of perfume is on display at the Fragonard perfumery in Grasse, one of the oldest-running perfumeries in France. Dating to 1926 and featuring plenty of artifacts from the original distillery, the historic factory functions as a modern artisanal perfume factory deeply rooted in tradition.
 
The Basics
A free Fragonard factory guided tour takes you through the history and distilling process of perfume over the course of 30 minutes, concluding in a gift shop where Fragonard perfumes and soaps are available for sale—otherwise only available at Fragonard boutiques and through mail order. Because of its small size, the perfumery is best visited as part of a guided tour of the French Riviera that includes transportation through the region’s windy roads.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • Most perfumery tour guides speak English.
  • This attraction is not suitable for those with scent sensitivities.
  • The perfume factory makes an ideal day trip or half-day trip from Cannes, Nice, or Monaco.
  • Fragonard has additional museum and factory locations in Eze and Paris, though the Grasse location is the original.
 
How to Get There
Grasse is located roughly 30 minutes from Cannes and is easily accessed by road, with plenty of parking at the perfumery. To arrive by public transport, catch the 881100 train on SNCF from Cannes to Grasse, which runs twice per hour, and then walk or grab a taxi for the remaining three-fourths of a mile (1.2 kilometers).
 
When to Get There
The perfumery is open from 9am to 6pm, daily. Arrive in time to spend 30 minutes to an hour exploring the space.
 
Sweet Smells
Famous for its scents, Grasse is known as the perfume capital of France. Its central location makes it a popular stop on tours of Provence and the Cote d'Azur.
