Petit Futé's opinion on PERFUME MUSEUM, FRAGONARD COLLECTION

Vintage plate 2020

Opened in 2015, this perfume museum has enough to seduce lovers of fine fragrances. Behind this exciting journey, enjoy the smell of the renowned Fragonard perfumery, a family home founded in 1926 in Grasse, a major center of French perfumery. The perfumery took the name of Jean-Honoré Fragonard (1732-1806), a famous painter of Louis XV whose father was a glovemaker perfumer from Grasse. The collections presented in the museum were brought together from the 1960s by Jean-François Costa, father of the current directors, Françoise and Agnès Costa. They brought together a collection of decorative art linked to the art of perfume, enriching the Maison Fragonard with a cultural and museum dimension. After the museum of rue Scribe, and the Théâtre-Musée des Capucines, this original and didactic museum reveals all the secrets of perfume. The location is suitable for such a deployment. A stone's throw from the Opéra Garnier, the Musée du Parfum is housed in the former Eden Theatre, in orientalist style, which was then partially destroyed and converted into a velocipedic riding arena. Far from the time of the Velib', the velocipede was in the 19th century a discovery for Parisians, who came to train in the art of pedaling in specially designed velodromes. In 1896, Maple&Co, the English furniture manufacturer who made it its showroom, moved into the area. It remained there for 118 years, emotionally ceasing its activity in 2014. Restructured to accommodate the museum, the space has kept the decorative vocabulary associated with a 19th-century industrial modernity, and combines stucco, Eiffel beams, glass tiles, brick walls and an elegant glass roof. Recently, the museum has even extended to rue Scribe.
