WELCOME AT MOLINARD !
perfumer since 1849
A family spirit over more than 5 generations!
FREE GUIDED TOURS
To provide even more delightful surprises for its visitors, Molinard had added even more to its guided tour, and unveiled its new olfactory circuit, where leisure equals culture.
Films shown on a screen illustrate all the traditional techniques used in making soaps and fragrances, and make for a lively and original tour. Visitors can view a fun quiz and take an interactive test of their knowledge of the world of perfume.
An ambiance mingling sound, light, subtle scents, clouds of vapour, essence fountains and flower harvests now reigns over the distillery. The scene staged here provides a realistic, authentic touch, and transports visitors back to the perfume factory as it was in the Thirties.
And lastly, throughout this circuit, models and robots illustrate the main types of job involved in perfume-making. Two assistants work at distilling, a nose concocts a new fragrance and a female assistant produces the perfumed cards so popular at the time.
Molinard awakens visitors’ senses with a wealth of new experiences!
