The Perfume and Candles of Provence

Contributor blog post by Ginger and Nutmeg:

Does that sound romantic?

Actually, Ginger was away in Canada and Nutmeg was certain that he had zero interest in visiting the Provence perfume distillery le Musée des Arômes or candle maker at the Ciergerie de l’abbaye des Prémontrés.

The aroma museum is located in the Provencal town of Gravason, in the old cellars (caves) of l’Abbaye de Saint Michel de Frigolet. The distillery at le Musée des Arômes has been in operation for twenty years and they pride themselves on quality, organic products. The old cellars have been converted and enclose a boutique, day spa, museum and even a small conference facility.

Traditional Provencal plants are used at le Musée des Arômes to make perfumes and spa products (there is a day spa located on site). You can visit the garden, which includes an explanation of the beneficial properties of each plant. Also, there is a small museum that is full of equipment and artifacts that were used at one time to make perfume.
