Eze Village - the Perfume Bottles


In the large entrance to the Fragonard factory are several displays of old perfume bottles and other paraphernalia that relates to the making of perfume. Not quite sure where the fans come in?

Lovely, lovely photos within and without the Fragonard location. I would not be able to pull my daughter away from there. Ever. I hope you enjoyed those scents, Jilly. I loved seeing the tile roof and your point of view for those exterior shots.

Fragonard is a well known name in France and Grasse is a place any girl would love to visit!

Maybe the fans are to waft the smell of the perfumes about. Fragonard isn't a brand that's known here in the UK, unless they are known by another name here.

Can anyone tell us out here is fragonard is equivalent to designer fragrances level? Or are they local? or are they the standard in the perfumery industry?? It's a safe bet when you open the doors the frangrance of the place must be divine?!!

So far as I know Fragonard is a local perfume - ie Grasse - so probably has no equivalent elsewhere. The perfumes are natural (no chemicals so far as I know) and the perfumes are made of essential oils.

I'm allergic to many known perfumes but had no problem walking around the factory, which - right - had the most divine smell. I bought some of the face creams and can promise they are a great product and good for sensitive skins.

I had not realized that the beautiful village you have been showing us is the village where Fragonardd is!
