    Default Fragrance destination

    Well here’s a thing - my wonderful son has offered to take me away for a few days to Grasse or somewhere else that would be beneficial for my scent trail either to smell or learn. We have four days from next week - based in UK where else should we consider and if not Grasse where ?

    I think that Grasse would be a wonderful getaway!

    If you happen to be in Paris, the Osmotheque (perfume repository in Versailles) has occasional lectures in English where one smells historic perfumes (it has many more lectures in French). But as a family trip, it seems that Provence is much more fun.

    What a thoughtful son! Wherever the destination might be I’d be mighty proud. Enjoy your trip!

    If you just want to take a intro tour / make custom perfume then I would suggest Eze instead, where the major perfume houses all have presence and the village is just breathtakingly beautiful.
