Perfume & Bottle Museums

With the exception of the Osmothique at Versailles, "perfume museums" are collections of bottles. In almost all cases the fragrances they once held have either been washed away or have long since degraded. What is on display is the presentation — the bottle and packaging. Yet bottle and packaging are intimate partners in the commercial success (or failure) of the fragrance.
