Grasse, the perfume capital of the world, an 11th-century city, a veritable balcony overlooking the Mediterranean, a land where essential becomes art. 
Visit the 13th-century cathedral and episcopal palace, 17th- and 18th-century mansions, charming alleyways and fountains, perfumeries, museums, and breathtaking panoramic views: Grasse is surprising and fascinating, bewitching and enduring.
And if you have always longed to understand the mysterious world of perfume, a visit to Grasse is a must, including some time at the International Perfume Museum, where you can learn the history of perfume around the world. Then put your new knowledge of this art into practice at one of our perfumeries, where you can create your own personal fragrance.
