Guided visits and creation workshops : Your backstage pass to the World of Perfume
Written on 6 October 2020
Perhaps you’ve already had the opportunity to discover what it is to be a « nose » by reading Le Parfum de Patrick Süskind or seeing the film adaptation. Perfume is known for instigating passion through it’s elegance and rarity… would you like to know the secret about how it is made?
Visiting our Museums and Factory
At Galimard, we allow free access to the heart of our manufacturing facility, a fantastic occasion to spend time with friends or family. Free of charge and open 7 days a week, our guided visits can be adapted for children, and will teach you all about the history of perfume. It’s an opportunity to discover the evolution of its manufacture, or learn more about what it takes to be a “nose.” In Grasse, the perfume capital, a UNESCO world heritage site, or in Èze, closer to Nice and Monaco, it’s one of the best ways to learn about our local heritage and the history of these two emblematic towns on the Riviera. At the end of the visit, you will have time to wander through our boutique, and benefit from true direct from factory pricing, on a vast selection of high quality products.
