The Musée International de la Parfumerie Will Reopen This Fall {Fragrance News} {Perfume Advert}


After announcing last year that the Musée International de la Parfumerie (International Museum of Perfumery), located in the south of France in the historical center of perfumery that Grasse is, would reopen in early 2008, the inauguration was delayed but is now scheduled for October 18, 2008, according to Fashion

On your right, an ad for the famous Papier d'Arménie from the 1890s, which is part of the Museum's collection, showing its purifying properties: it roots out evil angels and other miasma of that same order. The tag line is "Parfume, Assainit" (Perfumes, Cleanses)

(For a contemporary take on Papier d'Arménie, see Francis Kurkdjian's version.)
