Nestled among the hills overlooking the Côte d’Azur in southern France, there’s a small town exuding a sweet fragrance in the bright sunshine of the Mediterranean Sea. The Siagne river flows quietly through it, with flower fields on both sides. Roses, jasmines, and irises bloom in turn, and the area gives off the scent of a fairyland garden. This is Grasse, the world renowned capital of perfume. Its peculiar combination of sun and terroir makes it a fertile ground for the delicate flowers that make up legendary perfumes like CHANEL N°5.
