The history of the Maison Fragonard begins in Grasse in 1926 when Eugène Fuchs opened a perfumery named Fragonard, in homage to the famous painter from Grasse.
The 18th century building, which housed at the time the perfume factory, is today the Historic Fragonard Factory in the heart of the old town of Grasse.
