A universe of fragrances

The Perfume Museum opened in 1961, in the heart of Passeig de Gràcia, with the aim of introducing the general public to the universe of scents and fragrances, and showing them that this is just another manifestation of culture over the course of time.

Senses turned into art

Its collection, which ranges from thousand-year-old Greek, Egyptian and Arabian containers to the latest productions, shows how perfume has always been very closely linked to human sensitivity. The elegant materials used to make them, such as china and crystal, can be seen in the bottles from the 16th and 19th centuries , notably two that belonged to Marie Antoinette.

The exhibition also focuses on perfume as a commercial product. It includes more than 10,000 containers, among which the Roi Soleil (Sun King), bottle designed by the artist Salvador Dalí, stands out, as do some of iconic brands such as Dior or Guerlain.
