Théâtre-Musée des Capucines information
A separate wing of the Musée du Parfum is located a short distance south in the Théâtre-Musée des Capucines. The activity in this early 20th-century theatre concentrates largely on the bottling (for example, in crystal flasks from Bohemia) and packaging side of perfume making. There’s a decent short film here and, of course, a shop selling Fragonard scents.
