Overview
More
Fragrifert Parfumeur, The Victorian Perfumery, is a mini-museum and perfume emporium in one. All perfumes are made by me, Francesco van Eerd, and are created using time honoured techniques and with a high percentage of natural materials. Just as they would have been made one hundred years ago. Where nature allows, I even distill my own materials. I welcome you to visit for yourself the fragrant excitement that is Fragrifert Parfumeur, at the Top of the Cable Car!

Even if you are not particularly interested in perfumes, it is worth the trip as the decor and reconstruction is amazing and museum like quality. Of course the choice of scents is mind blowing, a strong connexion with the town of Grasse, the world's perfume...More

A sitting room fitting for the Queen that is full of the most beautiful fragrances. You can try everything and buy what you like in a range from perfumed mini tiles to fragrance oils.

Right on top of the WLG cablecar and botanical gardens, this shop-museum explains about fragrances and perfumes - and sells... Quite interesting to have a look at.
