Tour of the "International Perfumery Museum (MIP) gardens": The farmers of Grasse began to grow the region’s perfume plants in the early 17th century. Planted
as crops throughout the Grasse countryside were tuberose, jasmine, orange trees, Centifolia rose,
violet, mimosa, daffodil, lavender… In short, Grasse became “an enormous flower field” !
Guided tour of "Domaine St Jacques du Couloubrie":A remarkable garden created by Russell Page in 1950. Long abandoned, it found new life in 2005
