The Musée du Parfum, also known as the Fragonard Musée du Parfum, is a French private museum of perfume located at 9 rue Scribe, in the 9th arrondissement of Paris.[1]

History and exhibits[edit]

Fragonard Parfumeur established the museum in 1983 within a Napoleon III town-house built in 1860.[2] Its rooms contain period furnishings and perfume exhibits, including antique perfume bottles, containers, toiletry sets, and stills for steam distillation of perfume extracts.[3] Displays show how perfumes are made today and present the history of perfume manufacturing and packaging. A perfume organ on display has tiers of ingredient bottles arranged around a balance used to mix fragrances.[1]
