The perfect place to sate your curiosity regarding scents.


An exceptional museum on the Faubourg Saint-Honoré

A beautiful mansion houses the Grand Musée du Parfum. Located on the chic Faubourg Saint-Honoré, this elegant building, dating from the 17th century, also has a charming private garden. Its rich history resonates well with the spirit of the Perfume Museum as it was the headquarters of the Scandale lingerie brand, before being the couture house of the fashion designer Christian Lacroix.
