To learn about the secret of the perfume-making, and discover the history of the prestigious Maison Fragonard, you could choose to visit one of the three emblematic places: the historic Factory in Grasse, the Flower Factory in Grasse or the Laboratory Factory in Eze-Village. At the end of your visit, you will receive an exclusive creation for this experience: a large fabric pouch, as a souvenir of Grasse or Eze.
You could discover the Historic Factory in Grasse, with a visit to the perfumer's workshop and organ, the distillery, the maceration and filtration workshop, the craft workshop and the soap factory. This is one of the last examples of the artisanal and family factories of the Grasse region. During production hours (from 9 am to 12 pm and from 2 pm to 5 pm from Monday to Friday), you will be able to see the stages of maceration, filtering, and conditioning of our perfumes, as well as the soap creation workshop.
Or you could see the Flower Factory, a real laboratory of production. You will discover the modern production processes (chromatography), the workshop and its packaging process. You will be introduced to the different methods of extraction and processing of raw materials. During production hours (from 9 am to 12 pm and from 2 pm to 5 pm from Monday to Friday), you will be able to see the stages of mixing fragrances, performing chromatographic quality tests and conditioning of perfumes, as well as our most important soap-making workshops. At the beginning of the spring, visits to the factory come to a close in the ﬂower garden, replete with plants like rose de Mai, lavender, broom, syringa, and honeysuckle. These provide essences for Grasse-style perfumery.
If you choose to visit the Laboratory Factory in Eze-Village, you will learn about the secrets of the manufacture of our cosmetic care products. During the production periods (from 9 am to 12 am and from 2 pm to 6 pm from Monday to Friday), you will be able to see the design stages of creams, shower gels, and solid perfumes. A soap-making workshop is also available.
