Musée du Parfum information
If the art of perfume-making entices, stop by this collection of copper distillery vats and antique flacons and test your nose on a few basic scents. Run by the parfumerie Fragonard, it's located in a beautiful old hôtel particulier (private mansion); free guided visits are available in multiple languages. A short distance south, a separate wing in a 20th-century theatre, the Théâtre-Musée des Capucines , concentrates largely on the bottling and packaging side of perfume production.
