*** MIP (International Perfume Museum)
Created in 1989, the International Perfume Museum, a unique museum in the world, is part of the emblematic territory of the city of Grasse, cradle of luxury perfume which France was the initiator. Dedicated to one of the most prestigious French traditional activities, the International Perfume Museum, public establishment, labeled "Museum of France", allows visitors to discover the history and originality of the trade of industrialists and large houses of perfumery. True testimony of the international technical, aesthetic, social and cultural history of the tradition of the use of scents, the museum approaches with an anthropological approach the history of fragrances in all its aspects - raw materials, manufacturing, industry, innovation, trade, design, uses and through very diverse forms - objects of art, decorative arts, textiles, archaeological witnesses, unique pieces or industrial forms.
Following a Western historical chronology - Antiquity, Middle Ages, modern and contemporary periods - the museum is organized in five parts each representing a period of history and contemporary themes: elegance and classicism, magic and dynamism, frivolity and hygiene.
In all civilizations, perfumes have led to an incredible production of precious and refined objects in rare materials: alabaster, enamelled earthenware, ceramics, glass, worked metals. Through exceptional collections of objects and scenarios of different industrial techniques, the museum traces the history of perfumes, but also soaps, cosmetics and cosmetics, for four thousand years.
This museum of the 21st century looks at the past, but also the present and even the future if we think of the section on the era of globalization, marketing and communication and new markets.
Welcome to the world of perfume! ...
