Fortunately, they don’t charge you to breathe the priceless scents at Le Musee de Parfum, which is just one of the reasons we love the free guided tours at this homage to odeurs. Learn about the history of perfume inside a gorgeous historic townhouse — around 3,000 years of perfume-making history is covered — then purchase some sensuous smells at factory prices to prove your Paris visit.
