Pays de Grasse
Between the Alps and the Mediterranean lies a land of subtle charm, with the City of Perfumes as its capital: It is known as the Pays de Grasse and offers visitors from around the world a splendid, sunlit setting with a vast array of cultural and natural marvels, exceptional biodiversity, and an outstanding quality of life.
The Pays de Grasse – a land of 23 towns and villages, shady forests and sun-drenched hillsides, mountains and plains brimming with nature’s richness and delicacy – is forged by alpine and maritime forces, both natural and cultural, creating unparalleled heritage and original savoir-faire.
So you think you know the French Riviera? The Pays de Grasse will surprise you every time!
Established in 1989, this museum, the only one of its kind in the world, has embedded itself in the iconic region of the town of Grasse, cradle of the luxury perfumery initiated in France.
Dedicated to one of the most prestigious traditional French activities, the International Museum of Perfumery, a public establishment with the “Musée de France” label, enables visitors to explore the history and peculiarities of the craft of manufacturers and the great houses of perfumery.
