Regular tours of the Fragonard distillery explain the 400-year history of the French perfume industry and give a unique peek into how luxury fragrances are created today. A small museum also details the longer history of perfume in the world and displays a lovely collection of bottles and equipment. The gift shop is a collection of temptations, with linens and home items in addition to many varieties of scents, cosmetics, and soaps for sale.
As if St. Paul-de-Vence in the Provence region of France wasn't charming enough, enter Parfumerie Fragonard, the most charming little shop with an array of items, from perfumes, to jewelry and clothes, to cosmetics and lotions. It's the perfect place to get a few gifts for friends... and a few gifts for yourself.
