The museum gave an insight into the history of the building and Fragonard perfumes. However, the bulk of the museum is taken up with a showroom. Great for a visit but be prepared to do some serious shopping afterwards.

There is a historical aspect to this place, but I wouldn't call it a museum. Fragonard is a French perfume that is only made in France. This is one of the locations you can purchase their perfumes, soaps, etc. There is a guide who takes you through and explains how it is made and the history of Fragonard. The building... More

Free "museum", I wouldn't really call it a museum, it's more of a show room where you have a guided tour, none the less it's very interesting and I enjoyed it very much. If you arrive and see a big line, don't worry about your wait time, it's very quick and they take people in groups. Once the tour is... More

Not what we were expecting - more a shop trying to sell a selection of pre-made perfumes. Crowded and very touristy - the shop assistants were helpful!

I wrote this review but apparently it was never received. Went to the Fragonard Perfume Factory which is in Paris. Wonderful place to visit and learn about perfume. They have a shop to sell the perfume -- but not hard sale. Bought some myself.

This museum is housed in an old theatre and it is minute . If you have time do both whizz round this one in 5 minutes and then go to the nearby Fragonard museum in Rue Scribe (nearer to the Opera House) because it is bigger and better otherwise just go to Rue Scribe . The shopping at the end... More

Dont go here expecting a museum, it really is a store with some display of how to make perfume. The "museum" is one room, one third of the size of the shop! It is not a bad place for a visit if you would like to buy a cute perfume.

The tour is below average, the exhibits ok, the shop pretty expensive. i have definetly wasted my time here. If you are looking for classic french products in a stylish shop, look for the shops outside the Lourve museum.

Neighbourhood Profile
Opera / Bourse
The neighbourhood around Opéra and Bourse is a belle époque paradise of grand boulevards, refined arcades, and mass-market art-nouveau entertainment. Here, modern day workers continue to take advantage of the legacy that nobility and finance left in the 19th century. Brightly-lit brasseries, theatres, and cinemas sit side by side with French bistros predominating in one area and Japanese restaurants in another. The area is most famous for the Palais Garnier opera house and glamorous department stores.
