  • Had a wonderful time learning about fragrance and essence and imports and all the very interesting things that go into perfume. The guided tour was free and they had an English option which was great for us visiting from the US. The fragrances were exquisite and the staff was exceptionally pleasant and helpful. I highly recommend coming here if you're by the Opera.
  • Friendly free tours offered at this small museum including one in English. They do try to sell you perfume at the end by letting you try different scents on and offering a discount if you bundle the bottles and buy more. The museum bathrooms are clean. You can shop in their perfume store at the end of the short tour where the also sell soaps and candles. The museum is located near the Opera metro stop.
