The parisien advice of Grazia.it: Grand Musée du Parfum - 73 Rue Faubourg Saint Honoré
Opened last December, the Grand Musée du Parfum is located inside a hôtel particulier in the heart of the city, an old private residence that over the years also belonged to Christian Lacroix. The peculiarity of this museum is not only to tell the millennial history of fragrances and the art of their creations, but above all to make people aware of the sense of smell: thanks to a smartcard delivered at the entrance, you can memorize during the visit the favorite flavors. Divided into three sections, the most particular is undoubtedly the second which not only explains how the sense of smell works but above all highlights how it is an extremely personal sense. An example? If you go with someone, you will realize that not all noses pick up all the smells emitted by the installations.
