The museum

During the Rococo era, the perfumer Farina created one of the most famous "waters" in the world - "Eau de Cologne". The citrus fragrance soon became the perfume of the upper class - Napoleon was amongst Farina's best customers. Due to its success, "Eau de Cologne" became a perfume category in its own right. The classy perfume is still made today by the same family in the same house.
