Grasse, the jewel of the French Riviera, is more than just an enchanting destination. It's the pulsating heart of the perfume industry, a city that has woven a captivating tale through the enchanting scents it has crafted over the centuries.

The Dawn of Perfumed Art in Grasse

The history of perfume manufacturing in Grasse dates back to the 16th century when the city became a center of excellence in leather processing. Glove makers, out of necessity, began perfuming their gloves to mask the smell of leather. Thus began Grasse’s journey into the world of perfume.

The Renaissance: Grasse, Perfume Capital

In the 17th century, the cultivation of fragrant flowers, notably roses and jasmine, flourished in the region. Thanks to its ideal climate and fertile soil, Grasse became a privileged hub for growing these precious raw materials. Perfume artisans established distilleries to extract the aromatic essences from flowers, making Grasse the undisputed capital of perfume.

The Master Perfumers of Grasse

In the centuries that followed, Grasse witnessed the rise of master perfumers whose creative genius transcended borders. Names like Jean-Baptiste Grenouille, immortalized in Patrick Süskind’s novel “Perfume,” contributed to Grasse’s renown as the birthplace of perfumes.
