Fragonard Perfume Museum (Musée du Parfum Fragonard) Tours

Fragonard Perfume Museum (Musée du Parfum Fragonard)
The Fragonard Perfume Museum (Musée du Parfum), located just steps from Opéra Garnier, provides an immersive and multi-sensory introduction to the world of fragrance. Sponsored by Maison Fragonard—a legendary French perfume house founded in 1926—the museum provides a behind-the-scenes look at the perfume-making process.

The Basics
Located on the site of the former Éden-Théâtre—a popular 19th-century theater—the Perfume Museum opened to visitors in 2015. Its one-of-a-kind collection focuses on the traditions and history of perfume-making and showcases everything from ancient Mesopotamian artifacts and historical perfume labels to copper stills. The museum also offers a number of interactive attractions, including an olfaction room where visitors can sniff different ingredients and test their noses and a functioning perfume laboratory.

Advanced bookings are not required for this free attraction, which makes it simple to plan a spontaneous, drop-in visit. The museum can be woven into bespoke Paris walking tours or combined with other sightseeing stops in the area. 

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The museum is free to visit, and complimentary guided tours (available in English and French) are offered every 20 minutes throughout the day.
  • The Musée du Parfum does not have a cloakroom, so it’s best to avoid bringing large bags or other cumbersome items.
  • You can purchase scents, accessories, soaps, cosmetics, and other souvenirs in the on-site gift shop.
