The gardens where perfumes are born.

Centifolia rose, jasmine, tuberose, lavender, geranium, juniper, orange blossom – it is of plants that perfumes are truly born, essences from near or far.

Beautifully set amid fields of perfume plants traditionally grown in the Grasse region, the International Perfume Museum Gardens are part of the regional project lead by the communauté d’agglomération (conurbation authority) and have become the museum’s plant conservatory, a natural space representing the region’s olfactory landscape and its relationship and history with local agriculture.

Built around a venerable canal and an agricultural basin, the site spreads across two hectares. Here, fields of plants traditionally grown as perfumery crops lie alongside landscaped areas displaying various collections of fragrant or aromatic plants. These primarily serve to support conservation of the varietal diversity of species traditionally cultivated for perfumery. They also reflect the olfactory landscape of local agriculture.

Enjoy a stroll through the gardens and discover plants arranged by their olfactory notes: citrus, floral, woody, spicy, fruity, musky, and more.

Video guides are available to enhance this exploration, giving you access to photographs, photos, and videos, including interviews with farmers, flower-pickers, and essence traders.
