What people are saying:

THÉÂTRE-MUSÉE DES CAPUCINES Nasturtium Theater was built in 1895, and was converted into a perfume museum in 1993, displaying the development history of perfume and manufacturing technology over 3000 years. Located next to the busiest street in Paris, France, entering the lobby from the courtyard will be surrounded by scented aroma. There is a mini perfume processing factory in the French museum, using a 19th century copper distillation filter device to demonstrate in detail how to extract essential oils from the original materials. Lovely perfume bottles from the 17th to the 20th century are also displayed here.

    Perfume shop! Not really a museum!

    There is a historical aspect to this place, but I wouldn't call it a museum. Fragonard is a French perfume that is only made in France. This is one of the locations you can purchase their perfumes, so...

    Brace Yourself !

    Free "museum", I wouldn't really call it a museum, it's more of a show room where you have a guided tour, none the less it's very interesting and I enjoyed it very much. If you arrive and see a big li...

    A shop not a museum

    Not what we were expecting - more a shop trying to sell a selection of pre-made perfumes. Crowded and very touristy - the shop assistants were helpful!
