    Default Barcelona and Grasse trip

    I'll be traveling to Barcelona and then from there plan a road trip to Marseille. Would like to visit Grasse and several places in Provence. Any tips for fragance/perfumery stores or manufactures to visit in the general area would be greatly appreciated.

    In Grasse you have the Molinard, Galimard and Fragonard factories that might be of interest.

    There was a thread recently on Barcelona and surroundings, maybe you could find something in that one.

    Whan I travel I always use this perfume guide.

    And in Grasse, like hednic said, those perfume factories are worth visiting. I went to Molinard and joined this perfume making event - very fun!

    For Barcelona I recommend Regia on Passeig de Gracia which has the museum at the back, it is only a small room but worth it if you like seeing some wonderful vintage bottles,the amazing Coque D'Or among them!On that same Passeig de Gracia you also have Santa Eulalia and the Basilica Galeria.If you head to the medieval quarter (Barrio Gotico), there is a small perfumery near the cathedral that has a lot of the fuguiea ( can't remember the exact name, but it is Argentinian)line.If you are a Ramon Monegal fan, it may be worth going to his boutique, last time I went there, they had smaller sizes of a lot of their scents!Enjoy your trip!
