Musée International de la Parfumerie - Grasse, France

Founded in 1989, The International Perfume Museum, the only museum of its kind in the world, is located in the iconic town of Grasse, the birthplace of luxury perfumes of which France was the initiator. Dedicated to one of the most prestigious traditional French activities, the International Perfume Museum is a public institution labelled "Museum of France" allowing visitors to discover the history and uniqueness of the profession of manufacturers and large perfumery houses.

A true testament to the international technical, aesthetic, social and cultural history of the tradition of the use of scents, the museum takes an anthropological approach to the history of fragrances in all its aspects - raw materials, manufacturing, industry, innovation, trading, design, uses and through a variety of forms- art objects, decorative arts, textiles, archaeological evidence, unique pieces or industrial forms.

Anne de Thoisy-Dallem

Anne de Thoisy-Dallem is a collector, expert, and enthusiast about compacts. Her collection began when she took a trip through the Passage des Panoramas, the oldest passage in Paris, where she acquired two Art Deco objects from an antique dealer.

The collection, which has constantly grown, now comprises more than 2,500 objects relating to beauty powders. It includes cardboard and embossed paper powder boxes, sometimes designed by well-known illustrators, made primarily between 1900 and 1960. These compacts consist of a flat case, often made from metal or Bakelite, and under the cover are placed the mirror, the powder puff, and the powder.

Certain compacts imitate everyday objects (watches, telephones, books, caps, etc.). Other, more modest examples, evoke tourist sites, wars, and the horoscope. Sometimes, they contain a photo of the beloved or even modernist pictures. In fact, these small relics reflect an entire century of history and the decorative arts, between 1880 and 1980.
