Usine-Laboratoire Fragonard

This huge, contemporary perfume factory offers a superb view of the village's baroque church and the sea. The free guided tour of the perfume factory is coupled with a visit to the cosmetics laboratory.

Inaugurated in 1968, located on the mythical corniche of the Riviera between Nice and Monaco, it benefits from a privileged situation at the foot of the rock, overlooking the sea.
It allows visitors to visit the laboratories and to understand the stages of distillation, hot and cold enfleurage and modern techniques such as extraction by volatile solvents or supercritical carbon dioxide extraction. The secrets of the perfumer are revealed because, like a musician, he composes his perfumes in front of an organ, a piece of furniture on which are placed all the bottles of essences that he will need. A perfume is made up of a chord which designates an association of several notes (woody chord, chypre chord, fruity notes, floral notes). The factory has a soap-making workshop, where pink and duck soaps are made.
Made from neutral soap granules manufactured in France, Fragonard soaps are perfumed and shaped in our factories. The process follows several stages: the kneading machine, the crushing machine and the plodder. The pieces obtained are cut into sections and finally "hit" by a press which gives the final shape of the soap.
Finally, the discovery of the cosmetics laboratory: in the 1960s, the House of Fragonard began to develop its first ranges of cosmetics and care products. Shower gels, body lotion, creams... These products are manufactured in the factory workshops in Eze-village and are scented with the fragrances of the Fragonard collections. The formulation laboratory is supervised by Doctor Anne Costa.
