Grasse, the perfume capital of the world, situates between the Pre-Alps and the Mediterranean, just 10 miles from Cannes in the southeast corner of France. 

A "city of art and history", Grasse takes pride in its prosperous perfume industry, whose history can be traced back to the 17th century.  Aside from being the center of today's French perfume production, this medieval town also attracts tourists with the Cathedral of Notre Dame du Puy and the numerous paintings in the interior, including three works by Rubens.

The favorable microclimate in Grasse prompted the cultivation of various fragrant plants, and subsequently the production of the finest essential oils and concentrates. Exhibitions and festivals take place every year for the world to participate in the celebration of harvest - rose in May, lavender in July, and jasmine in August.
