Chapitre 20: Parfait Scents of Lavande in Eze, France

Eze welcomed me with fresh scents of lavande…but not the kind that you find outdoors.

An ancienne machine used for juicing the aroma from flower pétales.

No, this lavande was from a parfum factory: Fragonard.

After a lovely tour at Fragonard and some parfum and soap purchases,

I décidé to visite the rest of the village.

It was quite a hike to get from Fragonard to the centre-ville,

but we made it!

It was definitely worth the climb!

5 Raisons to Soak up the Lavande in Eze:

  • Fragonard (duh!). This parfumerie offre an exciting tour in many langues – including Anglais (English) – of the factory: It’s histoire, it’s opération and production, as well as an explication of the Nez (Noses) are included on this tour.
  • La mer. Eze is a coastal village! There’s no better way to enjoy the Méditerranée than relaxing on a plage (beach) within reach of wonderful scents of parfum.
  • La Cité Médiévale. Eze was an ancien village Médiévale. Today, ruines of the château can still be seen! 
  • La Grande Corniche. La Corniche (roads made from the montagne cliffs) is composed of 3 routes that lead into the Méditerranée; La Grande Corniche is the most famous of the 3 – and it just happens to make an apparence in Eze. It was even featured in a car chase scène in the James Bond film, Golden Eye!
  • L’Église Notre-Dame-de-l’Assomption d’Èze. This quaint, charmante église not only boasts of 18th century architecture but it also offre belles vues of the mer.

Eze may be a village but it’s a Must-See for fans of architecture Médiévale (and parfum, bien-sûr!)!

When in Eze, don’t forget to make some time in-between the parfum and the Médiévale ruines to enjoy the côte. ♦
