Need a change of scenery? In search of meaning? Let’s go and discover Grasse, the capital of perfume; an intoxicating and sensual smell invades the countryside in August. The jasmine flower, white and starry, is ready to be picked. As soon as the sun rises, the fully matured flowers, at the best of their fragrance capacity, are delicately picked one by one every day.
To relieve the pressure after a day of telecommuting, we suggest you to:
- Escape to the fields of fragrant flowers. Below, the mimosa and the orange blossom. At 300 meters the jasmine and the lily. At the top of the hills, you will find the iris or the violet. The scents of Provence can be found in the middle of the rock gardens, with wild growths such as lavender, broom and thyme. Just let your senses act as you walk along. Escape and relaxation guaranteed!
- Create your own perfume in historical perfumeries such as Fragonard, Galimard or Molinard and learn how perfumes are made.
- Visit the International Perfume Museum in Grasse.
Jasmine Festival at the end of July/beginning of August: Every year in Grasse, the beauty of the jasmine flower is celebrated to pay tribute to its growers.
