Explore Fragonard in Grasse

Ancient techniques

The Fragonard factory houses ancient machines to extract essential oils, used in the 1950s, a process perfected by the Arab world centuries ago! You can go around and watch the delicate enfleurage techniques, where flowers are infused to preserve their fragrance: a recipe that is still used today. 

The laboratory

The perfumer’s organ

At Fragonard, you can picture yourself as a maestro conducting an orchestra of scents! Their perfumers use a special ‘organ’ – a stand filled with essential oil bottles – to create their fragrant symphonies.

Fun fact: The perfumes produced are stored in special aluminum bottles to retain the aromas for a long time!

The soap workshop

If you thought Fragonard was all about just perfumes, guess again! You can partake in soap workshops and learn about the artistry of soap-making. The signature presses create their famous ‘pebble’ soaps, making the ‘soap town’ a place that has everything you need for a luxurious bath!
