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.
