Raw materials can be touched and smelled… new perfumes can be discovered, so to satisfy the sense of smell, which is the one that evokes directly our emotions and memories.
At the end of your visit to Casa del Profumo you will find the perfumer’s organ, presenting hundreds of essence samples used by perfumers to create their fragrances.
