Ancient History Collection
The Museu del Perfum features a collection of over five thousand pieces between ancient and modern bottles, along with miniatures, catalogues, labels and old advertising material.
It includes all pre-commercial perfumes, classified under five different materials.
It includes a full range of industrialised perfumes (from the second half of the 18th century).
Antique bottles are a true reflection of the art and culture of those who used them.
