Perfumed Siestas

From July 1 to August 31, Grasse invites you to the third edition of the Siestes Parfumées festival. The concept? Make the most of a relaxing experience in an exceptional setting. With, as a bonus, an olfactive universe to discover.
By Caroline Taret

The City of Grasse, known as the world perfume capital, associates with the International Perfume Museum in Grasse for this playful and enjoyable event in the heart of the city. For two months in summer, lucky visitors to Grasse will be able to indulge in a little siesta in one of the deckchairs made available to the public in one of three spots selected by the organizers. Their point in common? The view or the calm that reigns there. So, between 11.30am and 5pm, you will be able to admire the exceptional view that gives over the Grasse basin. In the Orange Tree Garden of the International Perfume Museum, you can drowse in the heart of the place’s fragrances (between 2 and 6pm), or in the gardens of the Villa-Musée Jean-Honoré Fragonard (11.30am-5pm). It makes for an out-of-the-ordinary, unique initiative in which to discover the universe of perfume and the charms of the pleasures of the senses. Cultural events will also take place all summer, so check the program!
