This firm is well known in the United States, where its products are sold at Saks, Neiman-Marcus, and Bloomingdale’s. In the factory, you can witness the extraction of the essence from the flowers, understand the distillation process completed in copper tanks designed by Gustave Eiffel of tower fame, and even make your own scent. You’ll also learn all the details of the process of converting flowers into essential oils. You can admire a collection of antique perfume bottle labels and see a rare collection of perfume flacons by Baccarat and Lalique. The nearby Parfumerie Fragonard factory, 20 bd. Fragonard, offers a similar experience.
