Fragonard is an exclusive perfume manufacturer whose products can only be purchased in France and a few select stores outside the country.
The Fragonard Perfumerie tour proves very interesting for people who like to know how things are made and where they come from. Learning what flowers, animals and other things the perfumes’ and colognes’ essence scents are made from is shocking, considering that most people regularly spray these things on themselves!
The best part for most people is probably the opportunity to buy perfume from the Factory Store at about one third of the retail price. The discounted price is one ounce (30 mL) for 33 Euros as of 2007. Larger sizes are available, and purchasing 5 more more units results in a quantity discount.
Fragonard Perfumeries (official site) of France are one of the country’s more well known brands with their company based in Grasse, the home of their original factory and the ‘Perfume Capital of the World’. Fragonards has since expanded into Eze and Paris.

Fragonards is great perfume made in France. Fragonards is a well known brand and Contiki have been coming here for many years.

France is all about its beauty and beautiful smells are what French perfume is all about. For a souvenir you don’t have to worry about size, and its tiny to pack. It only takes about an hour and that’s with time to shop. You’ll learn something and leave smelling nice.
