Based in a historic mansion on 73 Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré, the newly opened Grand Musée du Parfum explores the multi-faceted universe of perfume, taking an artful and scientific approach to unveiling its mysteries.
While the museum is dedicated to scent, it is also visually stunning. The innovative scenography, designed by architecture firm Projectiles, draws on the latest technology, merging it with specially commissioned artistic installations to create an interactive, multi-sensory, immersive experience. Spread over 1,400 m² its museography unravels the mysteries of perfume through exploring not only the history, science and art of fragrance, but also of our sense of smell, a sense that remains largely little-understood and underrated.
“Telling the story of perfume is like telling the story of humanity.” Sandra Armstrong, Museum Director
