The Museum of Perfume

A cultural space opens in Marrakech dedicated to the Art and history of perfume in Morocco. 

From the distillation of floral waters to the extraction of plant and essential oils, the museum of perfume in Marrakech lets visitors discover all the olfactory treasures of the kingdom.

Its collection of medicinal and aromatic plants, as well as their different traditional and modern uses in the art of the Hammam, in body care and well-being, invites the public to discover a complete art de vivre.

At the museum, visitors can discover the universe of the creation of perfumes through a collection of rare objects and a selection of images. 

A perfume bar and an atelier for the creation of bespoke fragrances will also initiate visitors to the art of composing perfumes, so that each person can create their own.

The museum is open to schools and proposes a school of perfumery for young people who wish to further their knowledge of the olfactory heritage of Morocco.
A hanging garden with medicinal and aromatic plants shows how Moroccan flora is used in the art of perfumery. 

The initiative of the creation of a museum of perfume in Marrakech in the heart of the Medina in an artfully restored  19th century riad comes from  Abderrazzak Benchaâbane, a native of the red city. An ethnobotanist and creator of perfumes, he wants visitors to Marrakech to discover and appreciate the place of perfumes in the Moroccan art de vivre.
