  • Still, this is more than a museum shop. Guided tour lasts about 20 minutes, during which time you visit 3-4 room, telling about the evolution of perfume. Conducted tour guide-seller. After the Museum you redirect to a shop where you can choose toilet water or perfume to your taste. After the elections we only bought fragrances gift set thumbnails (this despite the presence of discounts when buying all at once), as submitted by the scents were "lover"

  • The Museum Shop of the scents we visited independently, without tours. With the staff talked in pure French, most likely we were provincialok. No discounts, Russian managers, the imposition of the goods was not. Very cool flavors. Persistent. The exposition is interesting, too, service at the highest level. In the Centre of Paris is a lot of boutiques, perfume and this is one of the oldest.
