Vintage Postcard Sunday...Let's go to a Museum...

Yes, today I thought we'd take a little journey to Grasse, France ~ a little community on the French Riviera not far from Cannes & Nice.  This town is considered the worlds capital of perfume!    Now these postcards come from the Musee Fragonard ~ one of the oldest perfume factories in the town and is still there!!  (if you click on the link you will be taken to their current web-site.)

Now, there are no dates on these postcards ~ I'm guessing they are from the 30's due to their condition and the coloration of the images.  There is a bit of information on one of the cards that is a bit curious.  It states that Mille Gerard worked with Mister Fragonard - Her Pictures appeared by Vidal - Paris... (not sure what that means) but anyway her pictures are on the reverse of this postcard.

The rest are additional views of the Fragonard Mansion....

So there you go...a quick little trip to the south of France for a stop at the perfume capital of the world!
Hope you enjoyed the journey :)

Have a wonderful day!


  1. Thanks for the trip to the perfume capital...ah the sweet scents in the air!! Merci!!

  2. Oh how I must put this wonderful museum and place on my visit list. I have yet to visit Nice which is on my list so how perfectly close they are for me. Love the vintage postcards.

  3. Thank you Roni -

    The sinus infection is preventing me from smelling all the wonderful different perfumes - LOL!
