The view of perfume capital of the world
The weather had turned absolutely beautiful and the sky was gorgeous when we arrived at Grasse, France. The Grasse great view and has retained its little breadth winding streets, cobblestones, archways and medieval squares and market places. Grasse has been a popular tourist town for multitudinous centuries, with the smell of flowers and clear air, the hills behind give Grasse a fresher appealing climate than the beach during the heat of the summer.
Grasse’s climate is ideal for growing delicate flowers that are some of the most in demand natural perfume ingredients. Grasse has been world capital of the perfume industry since the Renaissance and is the birthplace of painter Jean-Honoré Fragonard after whom the Fragonard Parfumerie is named.
