The Gardens of the International Perfumery Museum: These gardens have a wonderful place in the heart of the fields of perfume plants that are traditionally used in the Pays de Grasse. They are part of the territory project organized by the Pole Azur Provence area, and are thus the conservatory of the museum's perfume plants, a natural witness of the olfactory landscape linked to the local agriculture.
Situated below the city of scents, these botanical gardens of two hectares offer a deliciously perfumed promenade among May roses, jasmin, orange trees, tuberoses, violets.
