Theatre Musee des Capucines Perfume Museum

Being that Paris has been the cultural centre and the perfume capital of the world from the days of the royal court at Chateau de Versailles it is fitting that the exquisite frangrances produced by Fragonard can be purchased in this city, but they also decided to open two different museums in Paris.

The first museum is called Mus?e de La Parfumerie Fragonard, which was opened in 1984 and then came the second museum in Paris called the Theatre Musee des Capucines.

The Theatre des Capucines was first opened as a theatre at the turn of the 20th century, but in 1993 it was taken over by Fragonard, completely renovated and turned into the Theatre Musee des Capucines, where you will get a unique experience into the world of perfumes.

There is a miniature factory that has been recreated comprising 19th century copper distilling apparatus that demonstrates the methods for extracting raw materials such as oils and essences and how they are utilised in making beautiful fragrances.

Telling a story over around 3000 years right back to Egyptian times, there is a collection of beautiful perfume bottles and other objects that depict the ancient art of creating perfume and the collection of Parfumerie Fragonard is actually the largest private collection in the world.

Situated in the heart of Paris located opposite L'Olympia in the 2nd arrondissement and only a very short walk from the Opera, you can explore this museum and visit their boutique to pick up your favourite fragrance.

The Theatre Musee des Capucines is open on a Monday to a Saturday from 9am through to 6pm, yet is closed on a Sunday and national holidays and a guided tour is completely free.
