Museu del Perfum information
Housed in the back of the Regia perfume store, this museum contains everything from ancient Egyptian and Roman (the latter mostly from the 1st to 3rd centuries AD) scent receptacles to classic eau de cologne bottles – all in all, some 5000 bottles of infinite shapes, sizes and histories.
You can admire anything from ancient bronze Etruscan tweezers to little early-19th-century potpourris made of fine Sèvres porcelain. Also on show are old catalogues and advertising posters.
