(WE’RE IN SOUTHERN FRANCE, GMT+1)

Once known for its leather tanning industry, Grasse became a centre of perfume in the 18th century.

Today, three major perfume houses are still in business, mainly using imported flowers. Visit the museums and discover over 3000 years of history divulging the secrets of perfume, soap and cosmetic making.

Once a year, this fragrance filled town holds a Jasmine festival and also displays ‘bergamotes’, decorated scented papier-mâché boxes.
